Trip Update - Montana, NIBS Northwest Indian Bible School

Created on Wednesday, 16 May 2007 12:25

Our weary travelers (5,200 miles) are home safely and thank you to so many who prayed and supported us financially for this outstanding trip.

A special thank you is in order to Woodpecker Truck in Troutdale, Oregon who donated a nice aluminum flatbed trailer for our use on this trip.

The trip continues from our last update... on Tuesday, May 1 Rick and Marv left at 7:30 am from Crow  Agency, MT driving non-stop to Salem, OH arriving there at 6:30 pm on Wednesday, May 2. They  were the guests of Larry & Sally Brunk, owners of Brunko Distribution, where they picked up the five woodburning stoves.

After a well-deserved hot meal, a night's rest  and a shower, the two left at 11:15 am, Thursday, May 3 loaded with furnaces, hardware including ducting and a phone system for NIBS. They made another stop in Hartville, OH at 1:00 pm, unloaded ½ of the previous load to reload and added siding & trim for the NIBS boys’ dorm donated by Hartville Wesleyan Church.

They were treated to a gourmet dinner at an Amish restaurant, Hartville Kitchen, by Pastor Dan Sair, and then left at 5:45 pm for the long, long haul. Arrival in Alberton, MT at the Bible school was Saturday, May 5 at noon. A crane arrived shortly after that and unloaded everything. The team left at 3:45 pm on Saturday and drove non-stop home to Troutdale arriving at 3:30 am, Sunday, May 6. Needless to say, after eight long days and nights of travel, our two road weary truckers were glad to be home.

Rick and Marv were so blessed to be a part of this trip and to see how appreciative  the staff and students were at NIBS with the new furnaces and building supplies and thanked Frontier Missions over and over again for taking the time and making the effort to help make this happen.  To God be all the glory and thanks to so many of you for being such an integral part of this ministry on an ongoing basis.
