Intercessors, I hesitate to ask you anything more besides Prayer…so please accept the following as yet another invitation to Pray, Discern, and Act upon how our Lord leads you. Our desire is to give you yet another way to Worship our Lord in a desperate time for PBM.
Macho 1 is dying, and it is killing myself and all those who have grown to love the very first 4×4 diesel van (Macho) that PBM set out in prayer to own AND utilize in the battle against the enemy. The refugee village of Los Lotes took a great toll on Macho 1. 11 years have gone by since we sent a Friday afternoon email with the vision behind having a powerful 4×4 van that was up for bid, of all places on eBay. By Monday morning, PBM owned our first Macho and in Jesus name…the demons shuddered!
Those verses out of Romans 10 continue with what our Macho Vans have become; “And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent? How beautiful are the feet of messengers who bring Good News!” The PBM 4×4 vans have become the “beautiful feet” that carry the teams to the remote villages, “going and telling” of our Lord Jesus Christ’s Love for them, all the way into Eternity!
Meet the next “beautiful feet” that will carry the “Good News” of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to the lost and dying! We’ve been led to the 4×4 van pictured above, and ask that you Pray with us about partnering financially to make that happen (see below).
Discipleship is HUGE within PBM and is; “Mission Team Impact Extended!” The black Colorado pictured above will be our third such colored Discipleship Truck in Guatemala…with your help! The timing could not be worse financially, yet as the Macho vans are the “feet of those that bring Good News”, the Discipleship Trucks are the hands that continue our Lord’s work unto Eternity thru Discipleship. PRAY with us regarding this Discipleship Truck, located in MI that we desperately need in Guatemala (more info below).
As incredible as the “Hands & Feet” are, sometimes you just need Wings! The hours (days) saved, the access to remote villages (even during the rainy season when most are cut off from road access), and the expansion of PBM’s Seminary/Pastor Training into the Jungle regions of the Peten and Chiapas Mexico is attributed to Aviation! The “treasure in Heaven” continues to accumulate rapidly when Aviation is involved… BUT our Aviation Ministry is hurting deeply. In 2017 we were blessed with the Aviation budget being covered for that year. 2018 has seen very little financial support for our Aviation Ministry and we have 7 months of our Lord’s work yet remaining this year. PRAY with us for the “Hands, & Feet, & Wings” within PBM. Without them…without you, our Lord’s work is hindered!
Here is our breakdown of costs (Investments in Eternity) that are needed:
- 4×4 Van:
- Purchase Price $17,500
- Shipping & Import Taxes 4,750 +/-

- Total $23,450
- Discipleship Truck:

PRAY with us and for us, as we seek to be HIS “Hands, and Feet, and Wings” and live out “Whatever it takes, bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the lost and dying…” Help us not only to continue doing so but to do so more effectively and efficiently in Jesus name! PRAY and follow HIS missionary heart within yours! We will NOT be “effectively disarmed” by the enemy!
