new wheels......

Elijah Morris

grateful owner

of this

2000 Dodge Ram 2500 Truck!!!!

So funny that its the same color as our Ford 350 dually!!! I guess company colors!!!! And as always there is a story to tell, last night Elijah was looking on craigslist as he has been doing for a long time in searching for his perfect and affordable truck, money he had saved up.! He calls the guy, which is a dealership and the man says he has given his word to sell it to another guy but he had to wait and see if his loan request would go through and to call back today (thurs) at 1:15 pm. Elijah calls at that time today and the other guys loan did not go through and Elijah says "I am on my way!!!" Meanwhile since last evening we have, I have been pleading the Lord's mercy to not let the mans loan go through (thats not too kind but I did pray "if the Lord was willing.") So the guys left and headed to Norman Oklahoma about 50 minutes away. Another funny thing happened while they were traveling to the lot. The salesman of course waiting at the dealership for Elijah, had a guy come up inquiring of the truck and the dealership guy thought this guy was Elijah and said, "here's the keys, take a spin." Being enroute to the dealership, Elijah calls the salesman and asks for directions and the salesman realizes the guy test driving the truck is not Elijah whom he promised the sale of the truck to. So when the guy got through with the test drive, the salesman had to tell him about Elijah coming and he had first choice. This guy hung around the lot to see if Elijah was going to get it and soon saw it was a done deal!!! SOOOOOOOO, the Lord has answered a prayer for our family and for a 19 year old fella!!!! Thank you Lord for your provision!!!! and I have wheels here at home now until we get the van fixed!!!!! Yea!!!!!! See it did work out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now.......celebrate with hamburgers and Bethany and Kate are making dessert!!!!!!!!

Very nice truck! So happy for Elijah. We too love craigslist, I am more of a shopper there than seller, but maybe some day I can find things to sale to feed my buying habit. LOL
