As our next trip rapidly approaches, Dad and the guys have been working on the bus. Our goal was to finish out the front half of the bus, putting in the bench seats, covering the walls, and more. In order to get our old fridge (which, by the way, was actually salvaged from the tiny, old house that we tore down before this house was built) out, the windshield needed to come out. Plus, the windshield needed to be removed due to a large crack that developed on the last trip.
So, Thursday morning, it was decided to begin the process! It was supposed to be our warmest day of the week. You’ll find pictures of the process below. After all the pictures, you’ll find a special prayer request regarding the bus. We often hear from families who regularly read the blog and pray for us; we are extremely grateful!
Prayer Request: On Saturday, John discovered that the transmission was “slobbering” (his term!). Even if a person doesn’t know a whole lot about mechanics, you generally know that a transmission can be a serious thing! After prayer and consideration, Dad has a plan. There’s the possibility we won’t have to take it into the shop if an idea another guy gave us will fix it. We would greatly appreciate prayer that this could be a minor, easy fix, if it’s the Lord’s will. When Dad talked to a transmission tech on the phone, even he was stumped as to the problem. If it’s not a fast fix, we’re grateful if happened here and can be taken care of before we depart on the next trip!
So, we’re making progress on the bus, and it would be nice if it didn’t have to go into the shop so we could do more on the inside before we leave.
