Truck For Checo: Community Garage Sale

UPDATE 6/14/12: Checo is getting his truck!

My brother and I recently went to the Dominican Republic with Athletic International Missions. We were so blessed to see God working there. Hundreds were won for Christ!

AIM works with Dominican nationals to continue this program throughout the year. Hundreds of children and people in the communities of Sosua are being provided for medically, physically, emotionally, and spiritually through this program.

Jose Checo is employed full-time by AIM, and he is truly the glue that holds this program together. It wouldn't be possible without his faith, his obedience to God's calling on his life, his hard work, and his determination to see God's will be done. During the past few years AIM has realized a need for him and his family. Checo's car is in bad shape. He uses it as a means of transporting equipment, supplies, and donations to coaches and leaders of the program. He also uses it as a means of transportation for his family. Many problems with his car exist with the most serious of which being the missing floor boards. While in the car you can literally see the road passing beneath you. Not to mention, all of the exhaust which is being sucked into the car making it hard to breathe.

Checo is one of the most humble men and would never ask for anything. He trusts the Lord for his joy, satisfaction, and provision and protection over his family.

AIM has wanted to somehow raise money for a new truck for Checo, but have been praying and patiently waiting for the Lord to move. It has been laid upon my heart to make an effort and reach out to raise money to provide for this need. Through our efforts and the efforts of others I'm positive we can raise enough to buy him a truck.

I am planning a community garage sale from which all proceeds will go toward Checo's truck. It is scheduled for Saturday, August 20. If you have any items you would like to donate - clothing, furniture, electronics, etc - please let me know! I will be accepting donations over the next several weeks. I can pick items up from you or you can drop them off. If you live in DFW, I can arrange something with my parents to get the items.

If you don't have anything to donate to the garage sale, and you would still like to contribute, you can send a check made out to AIM with "Jose Checo's truck" in the memo line. You can mail it to me at
24215 Kuykendahl Rd #1112, Tomball TX 77375, and I will personally assure it makes its way to AIM.

Thank you for your prayers and support. I can't wait to see how God moves!
