Sean S., a pastor at Encounter Church in Powell, OH, posted this blog post on Encounter’s blog at the beginning of May and we just had to share!
Yesterday I got see part of a six month dream come true 🙂
The Honda Pilot Encounter purchased with funds that came in from our November 18, 2012, Day of Generosity offering, was put on a double-decker car carrier headed for Houston, TX. From there it will be put on a second car carrier and eventually make its way to Guatemala City, Guatemala.
Our friend Rut Chamale, the director of VisonTrust Guatemala, is the recipient.
Encounter [Church] has visited the small village of Cruz Blanca, Guatemala twice in the last 3 1/2 years where our people sponsor 60+ orphans. We’ve seen the great need for a reliable vehicle to transport food, medical and craft supplies as well as volunteers to the ministry center.
Go to Encounter’s FB page to see a few pictures of the Pilot being loaded onto the truck.
Something else fun I just found out about was that the Dublin Villager Newspaper printed an article about this story in today’s paper. In all this, we desire to God’s name lifted high, not our own. He is the one choosing to work through us and we count it a privilege.
