Blesses Us With A 14 Passenger Van!

|Millions of Ugandan shillings|
There are no car manufacturers in Uganda or in any neighboring nation as far as I know. The vehicles available here are used imports from other nations, primarily Germany and Japan. Toyotas are everywhere. They are brought into port in Mombasa, Kenya, and driven to various locations by drivers hired for delivery. Funny things happen along the way.

"Wow! Really?" I shouted back. I knew we had just bought a vehicle we knew nothing about. That's the way car sales are done here in Uganda. I'm just wondering what kind of problems we may have just purchased.
He made no response to my question. He was now looking at a dry plug from the gear box. "No oil in the gear box, either!"

The little remaining oil in the engine was drained, the filter was removed, a new one installed, and six liters of new oil added to fill the engine. The gear box and differential where also given their necessary fluids. The filter for the diesel fuel was replaced. Coolant was added ... the radiator was nearly dry ... and the reservoir filled. The air filter was removed and cleaned. The fuel tank was nearly filled and we were ready to drive this new vehicle to its new home at the Jinja base of Next Generation Ministries.

Thank you, Fairview, Oklahoma! Thank you Father for knowing our needs and using Your people to meet them. We are blessed and we thank You and them. Below is a very brief video of Pastor Robert Sityo and Jimmy Kiwanuka dedicating the van to God's use and service.
