Car Update

An incredible opportunity has become available for our car in Madagascar.  A used SUV that will serve us and the guesthouse better than a new truck!  Here are the details of why this used SUV will suit us better:

  1. It's cheaper!  $15,000 instead of $30,000 
  2. We already have the $15,000 in the World Venture account
  3. Insurance - cheaper again! SUV's and older vehicles have lower costs
  4. Seats - more people can ride in the SUV
  5. Comfort - the SUV will be more comfortable
  6. Great condition - It has been well maintained 
  7. V6 engine - allowing for more versatility
  8. It is already in Madagascar - no worries about when it arrives

We feel so blessed by this new option and the Shattenberg's are working out the details with the current owner.  Check out the pictures below!

Why a 4-wheel drive vehicle you ask?  Here are a couple videos of driving on the roads in Madagascar's rainy season!
