One of our missions partners will be on home assignment this year from the end of April until mid-December. They are looking for a vehicle to use during this time. It needs to be at least a 6-passenger vehicle. They would probably put 10-15k miles on it. If anyone could help out for part of the time or for the whole time, they would appreciate it! To help out, contact David Davenport at
