"Another One Bites the Dust." Queen (1980)
"Another One Rides the Bus." "Weird Al" Yankovic (1981)
"Another Bus Bites the Dust." ApologetiX (2012)
Our new 1996 Ford E-350 bus wasn't the only ApologetiX vehicle bearing bad news this week. Our old 1986 MCI bus was officially pronounced dead by our mechanic, who said it failed inspection and isn't worth fixing. He advised us to junk it and sell it for parts.
Having served us from 2007-2011, the MCI bus has about 1,125,000 miles on it. Last year, we put about $18,000 in repairs into it. Although we weren't planning to use it for touring any longer, we were hoping to sell it to someone who could use it. We'll almost certainly get a lot less money out of our investment by selling it for parts.
We were hoping to use money from the sale of the bus to help pay for the new bus, which also needs repairs, renovations, and a trailer hitch. Please pray for wisdom and God's provision. Thanks!
