We greatly appreciate and need your continue prayers! After a late night and early morning full of dozens and dozens of phone calls and texts, trying to work out details and find an available truck, or van, or both, or anything, we finally have a plan and are moving ahead. At the moment we are loading up the van with our things from the guest house and heading immediately for Mobile where the bus is in a shop. There the real work will commence---loading all of our things needed for the next week, from the bus, into a van and trailer. Dear friends from MS are generously loaning us their van for the week. 
There are lessons in flexibility every single minute this morning, it seems! Please continue to pray! Our current need is that we could make it safely in time for our concert in Brooksville tonight!

Thank-you all!

-Chelsy, for all the Bontragers


  1. Praying!!!!!! What a blessing that you found a van and have friends all over like that! Praise God!

  2. We are SO praying for you! We totally understand what it's like to have to squeeze into small spaces. :)In time it will be a great memory, but for the moment we're praying for God's abundant grace on y'all this week!


  3. Praying for you all!
    In Christ,
