New Van

Well, it's here. We were able to wrap things up this afternoon. I am so amazed at how God always provides for us and exceeds our expectations. When we first started looking we were discouraged at prices. When we looked at the possible trade in values of our other vehicles we were a bit discouraged then, too. But Jarred found a 2004 with 49,000 miles. He told us the van would be around $8,000. He then gave us very good prices for our other vehicles and we were able to walk out the door with tax and title for $5,385. Praise the Lord! Nate and I were really hoping to get the van for $6,000 or below. I had asked the Lord if we could get it for $5,500. The Lord gave us more than what we asked for.

Thanks Jarred for working so hard and quickly to get us some reliable transportation. You have been so good to us with the past two vehicles.


  1. Awesome! Glad this worked out for you guys.

  2. "Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory ... !" Your van is a great reminder to never limit God. He always has something better for us than we could ever imagine on our own. Enjoy God's provision!
