Betor Vehicle Fund

So as many of  you know we have been trying to raise fund for a vehicle for our family for the past few months.  We are very excited about the funds that have been raised so far.  We are getting closer and closer to our goal.  We wanted to share with you about the vehicle we have been using these past few years.  It is one that is shared by several people in Enoch’s family and one that has been back and forth on the old Cazale road many, many times.  A few weeks ago we decided to go and take a weekend off in Port and spend some family time together.  We do not have a chance to do this very often and if was the first time since the baby was born that we were going to spend time together.  We were all excited about getting away.  We began our trip on Henley’s birthday.  We celebrated in Cazale with Lori and Charly and left after lunch.  We began our trip in and were by the airport at a major intersection in Port.   The light turned green and  the car made a noise and would not move.  Everyone was honking and yelling and it was not fun.  Enoch got out a looked to see if he could see what the problem was.  Something had broken under the car.  It was around 2pm in the afternoon and so hot in the sun.  Me and the boys and Ameyah got out of the car (remember we are in the middle of the busy intersection with everyone yelling at the blanc) and made our way across the road.  We did not know what to do.  So we looked around and found a little small restaurant with two tables.  We went inside and explained to the owner what had happened.  She told us to sit down and make ourselves at home.  She offered us something to drink and made over the boys and Ameyah.  Enoch called a few people to try to get some help.  No answer from anyone.  Someone told him to look go down the street for a mechanic.

He found one and they came back and looked at the car.  Whatever had broken could have caused us to have an accident if we would have been in motion.  We were so thankful that it happened at the stop light!  After that they went to buy the part.  Guess what?  They found a shop right around the corner that had the part.  Enoch bought it and they were both under the car, in the middle of the intersection fixing it.   We were on our way in about 1 hours time and the car was again fixed.   Enoch and I have talked about that day several times and about how God protected us and then how quickly we were able to find the parts.  We thank God so much for all that He does for our family. 

Someone came this week and told Enoch they have a vehicle for sale that is like what we are looking for.  They are asking $9500 for it.  He is going to go and look at it sometime this week.  It is being sold by an organization that has been doing relief work here in Haiti.  We still need to raise around $5000 to we able to purchase the vehicle.  But we are believing that those funds will come in quickly if this is the vehicle that our family is supposed to have.  We are excited and thinking about the days ahead when we can easily take a trip to Port or take a weekend off as a family together.  We are looking forward to being able to attend church as a family, we are looking forward to being able to do things together.  We thank each of you again that have given to this need and ask that you continue to pray for us!  God is good!
