The Quiver (Psalm 127:4-5) - Josh
"Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one's youth. How bless is the man whose quiver is full of them...."
This 12 passenger quiver is a miracle and a gift from an earthly and a heavenly father. Josh's parents created a vehicle purchase fund for the family when we outgrew our 8 seater Caravan, but it took months to find the right vehicle. With people purchasing "bugout" vehicles, and with new vehicles being limited by supply chain issues, we saw prices for 15 passenger vans skyrocket all over the US.
One unlikely afternoon, with four hours notice, we drove to Kamiah, the first of several people in line for The Quiver; Kyra responded first just 2 hours after its posting on Craigslist.
The retired couple expressed grief at letting go of their 2007 vehicle of 14 years that they had used to travel between Louisiana and Kamiah, ID each year. At 95k, the mileage was low for an '07. The price was right at $8,700, about half the comparables, especially with the tow package, and other extras. The couple had tried to sell it two years ago and found no interest at $10k, so they reluctantly marked it down this year, not aware of the strange van shortage. Wondering if they had underpriced (with so much interest so quickly), they told us they were glad to sell it to a family that needed it. We picked blackberries and visited while doing paperwork and reinstalling all the seats. What a blessing, and just in time. With XC season starting, and Josh's brother coming, we needed the seats.
