The Story

We found it!

The Toyota Avanza is a reliable mini-van type vehicle commonly found in Thailand. It's large enough to fit 7 people comfortably, yet fuel efficient and easy to navigate through small roads or crowded traffic.

An American family leaving Chiang Mai is selling their 2012 Avanza - with only 10,000 miles on the odometer. We feel it could really serve our family well.

We've lowered our target amount to $16,500. Join us as we complete our fundraiser compaign...

Thank you so much for your support!

Many Blessings,
The Housers



--- Original Post ---

We are often invited to do a number of things that involve traveling throughout Northern Thailand, and we need to have a more reliable mode of transportation for our family.

Our roles with YWAM in Northern Thailand require visiting various ministry locations, and we also teach, contribute in leadership meetings, and attend or help lead outreaches into other provinces. Our current car is now 20 years old, and we've come to learn that taking it longer distances is no longer feasible.

As our children grow, our transportation needs locally are expanding too. Dave has been getting to Thai class and other ministry functions on a motorcycle, but so far we’ve avoided taking our children anywhere with it. We hope that we won’t have to take that risk.

We’ve come to realize as well that 1st Class Insurance (which includes both liability and collision coverage) is only available on vehicles less than 10 years old. So buying an 8 or 9 year old car could mean losing the option of full coverage in just a few years.

We hope to raise enough to reach our goal and get a quality pre-owned SUV or Van type vehicle with potential for many years of solid use.

We are so grateful for your support!
