"And my God will meet all your needs..."

The night we arrived back in the country we found out that we were in need of possibly two cars. Our ’01 Mazda 626 that we planned on keeping for the next several years was gone (too much to share). That left us with one vehicle- a 1994 Toyota Paseo that I bought for $4500 when I turned sixteen (aka “Old Faithful”). Needless to say, we didn’t think the 14 yr old Toyota was going to last very long. We had been saving for a while, but the possibility of replacing two cars seemed overwhelming! This was a test of our faith and a great opportunity for us to trust the Lord. To make a long story short, the Lord was so sweet. We took the Toyota in to get it fixed and the shop owner told us that only minor repairs were needed, and not the major mechanical work we thought. So we went shopping around for a second car. We found a really great deal on a vehicle in the newspaper (it was $5-6000 cheaper than the Kelly blue book price for it). We got counsel from several different people and prayed for confirmation. After we were already coming to see the car for the second time, the seller called to tell me he had found all the maintenance records and had dropped the price $1000 from the day before. Confirmation Enough- We are the new owners of a 2005 Honda Pilot!
