(I've had this post in my draft folder for a while now, but every time I think about taking a photo of the car, it either rains or Albert has got it. I've done quite a bit of driving since I wrote this post and getting used to it.)
|It's a seven seater.|
Thankfully God had a plan there too and one of the church members volunteered to go out with Albert and look for one. (for those of you who have seen "Fly Wheel", apparently car salesman are really like that, and so for us outsiders, who know nothing about cars, how do you know who to trust?) It took them the whole Saturday but finally at the last car yard (by then they had just about given up hope) THE car was found. The church member managed to squeeze a good deal out of the dealer (who providentially happened to be a Christian).
The end result a Honda Odyssey which makes me laugh! We sold our van to a family who were growing out of their Honda Odyssey! Even though our car is pretty basic for USA standards I think it is pretty fancy. It's got button to unlock and lock (a novelty for us) and it also has a button to open and close the sliding doors! It's got cruise control, AIRCON (a necessity here) and a stereo.

Now that we have a car, our options are endless, we were walking everywhere in the stifling heat but walking gets you only so far! We've now managed to do some birthday shopping for Kate (more on that to come) and Grace, also managed to buy some more groceries, cleaning products and some household things we have needed.
