John Paul's service truck was found tonight! It was found abandoned and completely stripped in Dallas. The good news is that the truck was found, the bad news is everything they stole is basically not covered by insurance. It will take about $25,000 to fully stock the truck with all of the necessary tools and equipment it originally had. John Paul is expecting insurance to repair all of the damage to the truck and he should also receive $4000 from insurance to go toward the items stolen from the truck. This leaves about $21,000+ that he must come up with on his own. That is where the donations come in. Thank you so much for supporting John Paul and his family, and for all of the prayers!
This is an account to help minimize the financial burden the
Dineen family is feeling due to a recent theft of their service truck.
This truck was parked in a field where John Paul's workers were stacking straw bales. They were stacking bales on a trailer right beside the service truck. The tractor that was loading the bales was returning with more bales every 10 minutes. One trip the service truck was there and the next trip it was gone. Thieves broke the window and hot wired the truck! The loss of this truck is a severe blow, as insurance does not cover the tools or the spare parts carried on the truck. There was easily $25,000 worth of tools, parts, manuals and equipment on the truck that will not be fully covered by insurance. There was also a 300 gallon fuel trailer full of diesel that was hooked to the truck as well. The trailer was not covered by insurance. This fuel trailer was used to fill up the tractors and combines in the field. The insurance will cover part of the vehicle, but not enough to replace it or the trailer, or any of the tools, or equipment such as the welder and air compressor. This truck is something that is used daily by John Paul and is absolutely vital to their day-to-day operations. The insurance company has a waiting period of 2-4 weeks before issuing any of the money. This also is causing a strain on the family. The Dineen's are a young farming family in Waxahachie with three school-aged children. Their sole source of income is from farming. Recently, John Paul was injured while working, and is on crutches and unable to work. Due to this, his family and hired help were already taking up the slack. Because of this latest set-back, the family could really use some help financially. They have an unbelievable faith in God and are trusting in Him completely. They know God will provide somehow even if the situation looks impossible. Please help us off-set their loss by donating to their Go-FundMe account.
