The Story

Jeremiah 29:11

"For I know the plans I have for you", declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Spencer and Nichole Gustafson have been holding tightly to this promise from God for the past 11 years. In 2005, while on a college mission trip to Belize, Spencer had a diving accident. Nichole, who was dating Spencer at the time, feared for his life as she witnessed his body float to the top of the water. Spencer had broken two of his vertebrae in his neck, leaving his body paralyzed with only limited mobillity of his arms and hands.

Nichole stuck by Spencer's side and they were married in 2011. Last year they were blessed with a little baby girl, Henley. Nichole's selfless love for her family includes caring for Spencer's day to day needs while also caring for Henley. Spencer works full time for Safeway's corporate office.

The Gustafson’s are in need of a new wheelchair accessible van. They currently own a Ford van that is on its second engine, has 184,000 miles, lacks the safety standards for Henley and is in need of a new hydrolic system for the wheelchair lift. Lets rally around Spencer, Nichole and Henley!

Fundraiser Updates

Posted on November 9, 2017

Friends and family,

We wanted to give you an update on Gusbus on where we are financially and what are the next steps.

As you know in October, we had our Gusbus event and it was a huge success. We are thankful for everyone who came to partner with us. Currently, with the money from Youcaring, direct checks or cash, the T-shirt sale and the Gusbus event, the amount is $58,000. Wow! Nichole, Henley, Piper and I feel so blessed by your partnership. There are also a few smaller fundraiser possibly in the works.

For the month of November, we have been contacting vendors in the Bay Area, both for the van itself and for the modifications, to try to get a more exact idea of the total cost for each aspect and to make a final decision on which vendors will fit our needs best. The plan is to choose a vendor and purchase the van by late November or early December, because our goal is to have a van by mid-January. The van will take between 6 and 8 weeks to modify, after purchase.

Nichole, Henley, Piper and I are overwhelmed by the support that we have been given and we are so thankful for you, through your financial or spiritual giving. We pray blessing and favor over your lives. In the name of Jesus!
