So I want to tell you all the really cool story about this new trailer. :)
We're driving right now from Virginia to Pennsylvania and at a certain point not far from Mechanicsburg, PA (which is where we got our last trailer in the Fall of 2009) Dad suddenly realized that now might be the time to get a new one. So we prayed and figured what we might have to buy it with (you know... shells, beads, cloth... ;) just kidding.. but anyway, we really didn't have enough at all, so we just prayed that God would do something miraculous and went in to see what would happen. :)
Miraculous He did!!
This place happens to have had a special order for a trailer with extra-spiffiness (namely a long tongue for a large rig to pull with and reinforced metal) and the people who ordered it cancelled... so these guys really wanted that one to be sold. However, us not having enough funds for it, that option was ruled out. So the long and short of it is that the guy gave us an amazing discount on a great trailer, took our um, well-loved trailer *ahem* very well loved.. and then met us outside...having pulled up the nicer, more expensive, special order trailer. He said we could go ahead and take that one and not to worry about it. :)
We were so blown away! And... still are as a matter of fact. =)
So we had a great time with him, grabbed a picture and set out with God's newly provided trailer in tow! Don't worry, we DID remember to switch all of the equipment. ;)
There were so many other details, but I will just have to summarize with this abbreviated version.
God is so good and faithful to His servants. He knew how maxed out we were for space and had provided in amazing timing!
Glory to our loving Father!!!
We have now reached approximately our half way point of this tour and God has blessed it incredibly. Thank you all so much for your prayer support- God is using your faithfulness in upholding us and is ANWERING. So please keep praying! God bless each of you abundantly and may you grow more and more in love with our dear Father!
Your sister in Christ, Miriam
See that door beyond our trailer?
Yep, that right there is a cool door. :)
