This is getting real!!! The graphics are gone! The truck still looks more like Big Bird with his big yellow body but we’re getting ready to see some real progress. I’m not going to lie, there have been ups and downs.
We have selected 4 locations in 4 local neighborhoods on Buffaloe Road. 3 are finalized and 1 needs some work.
It’s been powerful to see God provide the gifts, sacrificially given, to secure this vehicle. Each week we are seeing God’s provision, his grace to open doors and his strength to keep us going. Philippians 4:19 reminds us that God will supply our needs & Phil. 1:9 says that He who began a good work in us will complete it. There’s much to celebrate!!!
Just yesterday we received word that our painters will be starting on the truck on Monday, June 5th. Thank you shout out to Capital Chevy on Capital Blvd. They will be painting the truck white and making it look good for 10% over cost. We are SO thankful!
We also had a training meeting with our sponsor yesterday (June 1) and were encouraged to keep pressing forward.
We ALSO got word of a 5th neighborhood that wants us to come and serve their kids. One of our church members has a contact there. We don’t have quite enough help to add a 5th site. It would be fun though. There are about 45 kids there. Will see what God wants us to do.
Please be praying for this important initiative. We are blessing kids and their families with food and support this summer. God came in person and we are to do no less. God is working ahead of us. He is reaching into these neighborhoods, preparing opportunities for us to share Jesus’ story.
