Dear Partners in Mission,

Thank you for your prayers in helping this home ministry time come together.  One of the amazing blessings I’ve received is the use of a vehicle for the entire time I am here in Colorado.  Transportation is something critical in each of our lives.  For the last seven years I have been using public transportation in the DR in the shape of various sizes of buses, motorcycle taxis (like the above photo), regular taxis and ‘publicos’ which are small cars with up to 6 passengers.  With the university work, I find myself carrying a lot of stuff back and forth between cities.  I have resisted owning a vehicle both for cost reasons and for driving aspects.  In the past couple of years I’ve had some practice with a rental car during a friend’s visit to alleviate some of my driving concerns.  I have been praying about this and feel the time has come to purchase a vehicle to assist with this ministry.  Thankfully God has already brought about half of the cost for a car together for me.  If you would like to join in this particular aspect of the ministry, you can send a check to SAMS, with Cathy Donahoe and VEHICLE in the memo line.  (SAMS, PO Box 399, Ambridge, PA  15003)  SAMS will not take the usual 15% from these gifts.  Please pray that God provides the funds and a safe vehicle for me upon return to the DR.

In Christ,

Cathy Donahoe
