I posted on December 16th about the trailer that Bro. Jimmie Radcliffe had found for City Reach. That post has a full description of our intention for the trailer and some pictures. I mentioned then that Bro. Jimmie had a solid Dodge truck but that he was in the market for a bigger truck in good condition.
Bro. Jimmie's Dodge with the Cummins engine would have no trouble pulling the trailer but with that much trailer and that much weight, stopping power becomes a big issue. A bigger truck was really needed to take a load off of his mind.
By the end of December he had found just the truck he was looking for. If I understand correctly, it is a 2000 Volvo. It does have lots of miles but Bro. Jimmie ran across several guys still using similar trucks every day with twice the miles. He also had this one checked out by a diesel mechanic/driver and he gave this truck the thumbs up.
Here are a few pictures.
It looks great! We are praying that this truck gives Bro. Jimmie good dependable service this year in City Reach and for many years beyond. Bro. Jimmie bought this truck himself and is in the process of putting in the living quarters in the front of the tent trailer. If anyone would like to help with any of that expense please feel free to contact us and I will put you in direct contact with Bro. Jimme Radcliffe.
Slowly but surely God is putting all the pieces for City Reach into place. This is a learning experience for all of us except God. He knows exactly what He is doing and He is passing information on to us on a need to know basis, I guess. Thank God for His help!
We are having a great time in Ellisville. There is no way to describe the response in the altar last night other than to say Thank you God for your touch! Amazing! Thank you for praying for us.
