|Dear friend of the Proverbs:
In August 2006 when the previous Proverbs 20 year old group ministry vehicle was retired, a friend of this ministry generously offered to match any private donations raised toward a replacement vehicle, which would then be doubled by this individual.
PROVERBS VEHICLE FUNDRAISING UPDATE:
This update is to let you know that our original goal was reached (and that figure matched) so we are now hoping to begin work on the bus interior in the summer of 2009.
NEW PROVERBS VEHICLE SECURED:
Just before Christmas 2006, the Lord led the Proverbs to an ideal group vehicle within their projected budget. It is a 40 ft. Prevost Le Mirage Highway Coach (bus). This vehicle is in exceptional condition, very well maintained, with minimal corrosion and a brand new engine, with just 23,000 kms. (... and it cost less than a new mini-van)
This coach seemed in such excellent condition, that Dave & Kathy personally borrowed the funds so the Proverbs could make the deal on this bus for just under $33,000. including taxes, e-test and safety inspection.
This photo of the Proverbs with their new coach was taken in the spring of 2008 in Dave & Kathy''s driveway just before the bus was ready to take the group to another concert.
|PROVERBS CELEBRATE 40TH ANNIVERSARY IN 2007
As the Proverbs celebrated their 40th anniversary in 2007, they also purchased their first actual "bus". (the Proverbs have been in continuous ministry since 1967 - driving vans - and the same ministry vehicle for the the past 20 years.) Finances permitting, Dave plans to convert the coach interior to a motor home layout, which will provide traveling accommodations (kitchen, washroom and bedrooms) thus allowing the group more flexibility and efficiency for extended travel in ministry.
URGENT REMAINING NEED FOR DONATIONS::
Approximately $10,000.- $12,000. is still needed to complete work on the interior of the bus. The objective is to meet this goal by the fall of 2009. Special thanks to everyone who has helped thus far!
