Vehicle Project: Specific Prayer!

Over the past six months, we have prayed for the funds needed to purchase a vehicle here.  We are continually thankful to God as we see Him answer that prayer, and to all of you who have been a vital part of the process as you have prayed and/or given.  As we approached 90% of our goal last month, I began to search in earnest.  We are still short of our goal, but I believe there is now a more urgent prayer need.

Last month I had a few opportunities to look at the car sales in Santa Cruz, another major city in Bolivia.  I discovered that I could find similar vehicles there for a few thousand dollars cheaper than here in Cochabamba.  I am going there twice more in the next two weeks for other reasons, plan to hit the car sales again, and am praying that I find something to buy on one of these trips. 

Time and time again over the last few years, we have seen God give specific answers to specific requests.  While I am still open to other vehicles (or different options), the following is what I would consider to be the perfect truck for the job, and it should be within reach once we get to 100% of our financial goal.  This is what I am praying for.  Will you join me?

- Toyota Land Cruiser 80
- Turbo-diesel engine
- Manual transmission
- Solid frame and body
- Lockers
- Not pretty, but mechanically strong
- Original left-hand drive

To give you an idea of what I'm looking for, I did find this 1992 a month ago.  It is all of the above, except that it has an auto tranny and is a transformer (originally right-hand drive).  Asking price: $15,000
