My brother is raising money for a new van because old one is falling apart.

Please pray that he will reach his goal before old one quits for good

Thanks bro!

Yup, I need to raise about $23,000 for a new wheelchair accessible van. 
Lots of people are praying and I'm sure the Lord will provide.
Thanks for all your prayers!

Praise the Lord!

UPDATE:

$45,000 total cost.  $23,000 I need to raise independently.

God has helped me raise more than $17,000.  And the costs of the vehicle has come down quite a bit.   Smiley

I have applied to 2 charities and am hoping to receive $7,500 from one and $15,000 from another.  I will hear back in late November. 

Please pray with me that these charities accept my application for their funds.

AWESOME UPDATE:

I received the $7,500 from one of the charities!!  God is good!

Bringing my total to about $28,000 raised.

I'm still waiting on a reply regarding $15,000 from another charity. 

Please continue to pray with me that this charity will accept my application for their funds.  And Glory be to God!

All funds have been released and I will be buying a new van in a few weeks.  Just in time for Spring!

Thank you Lord.  Thanks to those who prayed.

Hello Joshua,

I'm sorry that I missed your original prayer request, but I do know some about your health and have been praying for you. Your Brother David is a good friend to many of us here.

I am very happy to hear the great news. Now should be a great time to buy a van because of the economy. The trend is also to buy smaller cars that get great gas mileage, so vans are heavily discounted. I don't know if a mini-van would be large enough to handle what you need, but I did want to tell you some mini-vans also get great gas mileage. We have a Honda Odyssey that consistently gets around 25 miles per gallon in town and over 30 on the road. I'm almost sure there are other mini-vans that do equally well. I just wanted to mention this as an idea. Gas prices have come down for the time being, but who knows what the price will be next month or next year.

Love In Christ,
Tom

It does look great. I was wondering if that is a van with wheel chair accessible lift or ramp? I have been looking at one that has a ramp.
