Team ElDorado

Sloppy Joe has done the deal... In fact, he received a brand new set of tires from AMZ Financial. The Lunsford/Zuccolotto Baja3000 rig is a 1991 3/4 ton Suburban...blue on blue...hands down the best ride so far!SLOPPY_BEAST_sm.jpg

Yes, Joe did lock his keys in the car, a mere 10 hours after he had purchased it.unlock.jpg

Vehicle Recipients

Bobbie just got some specific word from the folks in Cabo who will be receiving the vehicles when we arrive... Check it out.

Rumor has it that Brozda has found a specific organization in Todos Santos that works with disabled kids. Apparently, he's looking for a rig that is "lift" equipped. Mike is also still looking for a partner as Ian and Neumann are out and on the fence at this point.

Dear Robert Ellenwood,

The leaders of the church are soooo excited about this project. They have in mind who should get the vehicles. Another missionary told us it is easier if the vehicles are transferred directly to the people rather than to the church. They are:

Marta Rocha Carapia - Marta is a single mother with 5 young children who lives in a very poor neighborhood quite far from our church and the center of town. It is a major project to get all her children and her mother on the bus to be able to attend Bible studies and church services. This would also help that family with their grocery shopping.

Filomena Acuenteco Morales - Filomena also lives in the same neighborhood as Marta. She has 3 children and her husband works as a mason and he does not make a lot of money. Sometimes she cleans houses in order to provide a little bit more income for the family. That vehicle would be a tremendous blessing for that family as well.

Rafa Gonzalez - Rafa came from the mainland seeking work and set up a small body shop for cars. He makes very little money at this job. His family (wife and 2 children) were saved at the Billy Graham campaign in the home of one of our church members last November and they come to church every Sunday from San Jose - 35 minutes from Cabo. Recently his car was being worked on and was stolen. One of the leaders called him to tell him about this gift and he broke into tears and could not believe it.

Jose Mauro Campos and Rafael Marin de Leon - are the two church leaders that we would probably put the church vehicles names under. They think the 2 suburbans for the church would work best because we don't have any vehicles to transport people. We often need to take the youth group places or go to special meetings with different groups from the church. We can also use the vehicles with the construction of the church.

The church is called Comunidad Biblica de Cabo San Lucas and is located at the Golden Palace #33 (2nd floor) Carretera a Todos Santos. It is a large 3-story yellow building where we rent a room. It is across the street from the Pemex Gas station at the intersection and light of the bypass road with the road that comes down from Todos Santos.

We are thankful for the wonderful opportunity. God is good!
