CAN YOU HELP US? Well, it finally happened! Last Tuesday Pastor Elysee Joseph and I acting on behalf of Caribbean Vision Ministries purchased a 15 passenger van. What we were looking for in a van is really scarce and they seem to get snatched up pretty quick on the market. After all our looking we actually purchased this van just a few miles/20 minutes from home. The van is a 2015 Chevrolet Express 3500 1LT Extended RWD. It has 47,700 miles on it and Carfax says it has no accidents, no issues and only two owners. It is equipped well and runs well and comes from a reliable dealer and someone who is used to shipping out of the country. We feel pretty good about it considering all the vehicles we have looked at. Elysee picked it up on Wednesday and loaded it with items we need to ship to Haiti, which will save us shipping costs on those items. The van will delivered to the Miami port today then shipped to Haiti. Elysee is leaving for Haiti on Thursday so he will be in Haiti to get it out of customs when it arrives.
We received a gift toward the cost of the Van and the cost of the van was almost exactly what we received by way of the gift. Another gift given toward the price of the Van will cover the cost of the delivery to the port and shipping to Haiti. So far so good and we are very appreciative for the very gracious gifts that have been provided.
We still need to raise between $4,000 & $6,000 to get the van out of customs when it arrives in Haiti. It just depends on how much the customs office decides to charge on the particular day it arrives. In Haiti you never know in advance. We decided to go ahead and ship the van and trust God and His people to provide the customs charges. Please pray for this need and if you can help with a financial gift that would be really great. Feel free to share this need with others. We will need these funds soon. Thanks for your prayers concerning the Van and we are thankful for God's provision and the fact the search for a van is over. This van will fill a big need for transport in Haiti for House of Hope, GO2Teams and the other ministries we have in the Cap Haitien area.
