We found out at the end of August that an individual sent us a monetary gift. It was enough to even allow us to purchase an engine for our truck! Thank you, Lord! We found out later that the individual who sent us the gift had no idea of our need. God answered our prayers!
|Preparing the truck to be towed in to the garage.|
So, after praying and doing some research on where the best garage would be to take it in to be "diagnosed", the Lord allowed us to find a garage through a fellow missionary here in Krasnoyarsk who was also using this particular garage for repairs on his vehicle.
Long story short, the workers agreed with David that the truck definitely needed an engine replacement. They also said that the truck had one cylinder which had not been working for quite some time. So, that was encouraging to us to know that there was a reason it was so "sick" even before we finally broke down on the side of the road.
The next step was to find an engine. Within a few days, the garage was able to contact a company they regularly work with and secure an engine. David and another missionary went to check out the engine for themselves to give their approval before we purchased it. We were able to purchase it and agreed with garage and company that the engine would be delivered this week for installation. Our truck should be ready by the end of next week in running condition.
Please pray for all the details to fall into place and for the work to be done with no complications. We will update again when we have more news. Thank you for your prayers.
