WE NEED TRUCK REPAIRS - $800
Our truck has been in poor condition for a while now. However, as of Friday, October 21st, our mini-truck has ceased to function. While we do have a tuk-tuk to help transport children, it is neither large enough nor powerful enough to move all the children. The tuk-tuk is mainly intended as a back-up and to help split the pickup route in the morning to save time. Without the truck we will be forced to rely on hiring an additional tuk-tuk every school day for at least $5 per day.
Our truck is a Suzuki model and parts for it are difficult to come by in Battambang, thus we need at least $800 in the very immediate future to get the engine rebuilt and the transmission replaced with Daewoo parts so that we can continue to use it and get repairs more easily. Long term we will continue to pray and seek support to purchase a newer and larger vehicle, but for now it is extremely difficult for us to operate without our primary ministry vehicle.
A newer, larger pick-up truck will likely cost somewhere in the ballpark of $8,000 to $10,000, part of which we can hopefully gain through sale of the small truck. However, until it is functioning again, the mini-truck is only really worth it for the scrap metal in it.
If you can help us please consider donating towards this urgent need! Otherwise please pray that God will provide what is necessary for us to keep providing transportation to the street children.
