In the Beginning

It is with great enthusiasm that we write with news of expanding the work of Mercy Trucks throughout North and South America. Over the past year while working with YWAM in Pennsylvania we have helped locate medical and dental resources for local ministries and churches to satisfy the unmet health needs of those whom they serve. It has been a blessing to see how God has worked in the Lebanon Valley to link resources to needs. God gave us a vision to bring our experience of launching and managing Mercy Trucks Ukraine to the US and to multiply that work throughout the Americas. Imagine how exciting it was to come across a Ford diesel truck with a complete Emergency Medical Treatment (EMT) unit offered for sale by a regional rescue/ambulance service for a fraction of its market value. I can see much potential for a medical and/or dental mobile Mercy Ministry application. The truck is in far better condition and offers many more options than our original Mercy Truck in Ukraine which continues to serve that nation. The truck has passed an inspection and evaluation by a local Ford dealership and God has provided the funds we need to purchase the vehicle. We believe this is God's timing to launch Mercy Trucks Americas now.

Our next steps are to purchase this first vehicle and begin the work of refitting and preparing it for its new role as a platform to bring medical and dental services to the most needy. We will also begin identifying, evaluating and reviewing mercy ministries in North and South America operating full time with a vision and need for medical vehicles.

Many of you are aware and have seen the awesome work God has done through the Mercy Trucks Ukraine ministry over the years. We ask you to partner with us in the birth of this new ministry in the Americas. We need prayer partners and intercessors and those who even during these difficult financial times can join us financially at any level with either a one time gift toward the preparation of the new vehicle, or with monthly support for the ongoing work and supply of the ministry. This is only the beginning! We see God using this ministry to launch many vehicles to reach thousands in need of physical and spiritual help.
