I owe you several posts with pictures, but first I wanted to share a funny story that just happened. You may have heard from Brent that we bought a 1995 Toyota RAV4 on Monday.
We saw it Saturday and called the couple on Monday to say we wanted it. The guy said he would hold it for us, but that they needed it until Thursday. So the plan for today was to get our passports stamped as residents (Brent's work visa didn't start till today, so we couldn't get the stamp at airport customs), get our driver licenses, and then meet with the couple to get the car license switched to our name. While we were waiting in line at customs, Brent got a text from the girl saying she just sold it to someone else who paid in cash. She said she didn't want to risk us backing out last minute since they are leaving the island for good tomorrow. We were so shocked! Then we were sitting at another office to finish the license process, and we heard someone behind us saying "I just didn't want to risk them backing out." Brent said, "Is that the girl who sold us the car?" I turned around, and sure enough, it was! So funny. We obviously wouldn't have backed out since we were sitting in the exact office where we were supposed to meet. Oh well. We agreed on the way home that maybe it was God protecting us or having something better in store. Maybe that car would have broken down on the way home or maybe the A/C would have been really expensive to fix. "The heart of a man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps" - Prov 16:9
Back to the hunt!
