The Team Leaves, The Truck Breaks Down & The Ungers Arrive

Everyone was up and ready to get home to see their families. After breakfast we were off to the airport. Keep in mind that the truck was still not completely fixed from yesterday, but it got us to the airport, even though steam was spewing from the radiator.

God is so, so good! After getting everyone down the mountain and to the airport, and after getting Joe and me to and from picking up food at Love A Child (to be delivered up North on Monday), the truck really broke down. Steam was spewing from the radiator and the front drive shaft came loose at the universal joint. The drive shaft was banging around under the truck for a few minutes while I tried to stop the truck, which was hard to do since the brakes were out as well. Joe and I were under the truck from 10 am to 3 pm trying to fix it. As amazing as it may seem, the Lord helped us get the brakes working just enough to get us back into Port. Tomorrow, with the help of our Lord, I am assured that He will have it ready for our trip on Monday.

While I was working on the truck, George picked up the Unger family at the airport. They had a long day starting with getting up at 3 a.m. and finally arriving at the CSI house about 6:30 p.m. What an exciting time for them to come and stay with George and Carol Ann for three months! Please be praying for them as they see if the Lord has called them to be full time missionaries. Read more about the Ungers.

I would like to thank everyone again for the donations given to the flood victims in Z’OrangĂ©. So far I am aware of over $ 7,000 that was given. You have blessed many families in the name of Jesus Christ, and we will continue to help them as we can.
