After a number of hours troubleshooting, replacing sensors, and the transmission fluid, it was decided the transmission is bad. Second, third and fourth gears are totally nonoperational. There is no way to get it fixed. God is good all the time!
It has to be rebuilt versus just ordering in a new or rebuilt one because they don’t stock this old of a model. Uriah’s transmission will be shipped up to Grand Rapids, Michigan, where it will be rebuilt. We are guessing that this will be a two week long process if all goes well.
Dad and John are working on details for transportation in the meantime. The shop will begin pulling the transmission tomorrow morning.
The good thing about problems is that our faith is built as we see how the Lord is faithful in working things out. We are excited to see how the Lord will work everything out. We aren’t worried at all. Nothing is too big for the Lord, and He knows exactly what will happen.
Our conferences are still on schedule. We will have alternate transportation to get us there.
So, the adventure begins.
PS – We have been rejoicing about the baby news, and we’re all excited about having another niece/nephew/granddaughter/grandson. 🙂
