Another One Rights the Bus

After six months of sitting still, we finally found another auto-electric repair company in our area that could actually fix our 40-foot stationary bus.
The previous company we used had buried our bus and us in a seemingly endless stream of replacement alternators, regulators, batteries and bills. And when it was all done, we were left with a bus whose batteries wouldn't stay charged for more than hour of use.
The new company specializes in MCI buses like ours and came highly recommended from two other reliable sources we knew personally. What's more, the owner told us it was a Christian company right off the bat, when he didn't know us from Adam ... or Adam Ant.
Based on their customer service alone, we instantly knew we were in much better hands than before. We dropped off the bus Monday and by Wednesday they believed they had found and fixed the problem. It needed another new regulator, and seems to be working fine now.
Keith picked up the bus Wednesday afternoon and drove it to our mechanic for inspection. It actually just got inspected six months ago -- Pennsylvania requires bus inspections twice a year -- right before the last weekend we took it out (September 30-October 1).
Please pray that all goes well with the inspection. We want to sell this bus and get a smaller, newer vehicle more suited to hauling our trailer. We're thankful for the five years we've had that bus, and we'd love to see it go to somebody who can put it to more suitable use.
