Sometimes God provides beyond what you could hope for. Over the last few weeks I have been working with CLTC to get some of our household goods moved here to Ukarumpa as CLTC frequently drives trucks right past here (well, six miles away). Because we didn't know how much to expect, I arranged three small vehicles to carry everything, if they were needed. The morning before we were to go to meet the CLTC truck at the breaking/broken bridge (If you want to see a picture of it, go to our page on Facebook: Mundhenk's Ministry) and carry everything across by hand, the administrative head of the institute here gave me a call. He said that instead of trying to work out the logistics and expense of using three vehicles, why not just use the training center truck; it can carry everything all by itself. That was blessing number one....

On Wednesday morning I kept in touch by phone with the truck from CLTC and we met them at the bridge. We knew there was quite a bit to get across the bridge - about 2,200 pounds - but what we didn't know was that a couple of the pieces were heavier than the number of people we had could carry. Just as we started a group of young men came up and asked if they could help. Normally they would expect something in return, which is only fair. But, they asked for nothing in return! The stuff was heavy and there were gaps in the bridge wide enough to drop a truck wheel into, but with their help we got everything safety across. God's provision comes in many forms; sometimes it's a truck and extra hands!

Prayer Point: We have one more load to come but I will likely have to go and get it. Pray that I will be able to find the most economical way to get it here and that the logistics with a vehicle and the bridge would work out.
