Our "New" Horse

Hyundai Galloper II, 4WD, SUV, 7-seater - the Potter's "new" horse
"You can be sure that God will take care of everything you need, 
his generosity exceeding even yours in the glory that pours from Jesus."
Philippians 4:19, The Message

Though earlier in the week, we were told that it was no longer for sale and would be sailing with its owner to Espiritu Santo on a ship, the truck we asked you to pray about was purchased and  transferred over to the Church of the Nazarene on Thursday afternoon to help with our ministry in Vanuatu!  Praise the Lord!  The Hyundai Galloper II appears to be a strong workhorse.  It went right to work helping Sylvia travel to her Old Testament survey class in the evenings and helped David with purchasing corrugated roofing irons yesterday to be shipped to Tanna for the congregation at Lawangi. 

In class on Thursday evening, Sylvia shared a devotional with her students that focused on God's revelation to Abram in Genesis 17:1.  God revealed himself to 99-year old Abram as El Shaddai, the all-sufficient God who is all-powerful and bountiful in his blessing.  Abram and Sarai were given a son in their old age, the fulfillment of the promise of El Shaddai.  They named their son, Isaac, because the thought of two old people having a baby was pretty funny and filled their lives with laughter.  The Galloper seemed like a very small-scale example to us of El Shaddai's all-sufficient, all-powerful, bountiful way of blessing and provision! 

Thank you for praying!

  1. It's always so encouraging to read of answers to prayer! I've enjoyed reading through your recent posts. May God continue to supply all of your needs!

    I am a life-long Nazarene and attend Friendship Church of the Nazarene near Many, Louisiana. We enjoyed having the Martins, missionaries to Sierre Leone, in our service Sunday night.
