Some of you may remember getting a letter from Blessing the Children about the government allowing us to import a minibus duty-free. This is a huge blessing to the ministry and the BCI Academy. Having our own bus would allow us to pick up the children for school and church and to transport missionaries/team members, instead of renting a vehicle, which ends up being about $1,000 a month. So this bus will pay for itself in about a year and then save us the large transportation expense.
We are happy to let everyone know that Tadesse traveled to Dubai last month, found a beautiful bus, and was able to purchase it. It is on its way to Ethiopia right now and we are hoping will arrive and be available for school in September. Thank you to everyone who donated to the purchase of the bus!
