The reflection of branches on the trunk
of this car seemed like something beautiful
on a piece of trash.
We were convinced that this car was not going
to be worth fixing when the frame rusted out
and, in a situation never seen before by two
mechanic friends, broke while Mikey was driving.
Warren assumed that fixing it would cost more
than the car was worth. You may remember that
I was sad because this had been my parents' car.
I hated to see it go.
Well, one of those mechanic friends had other ideas.
He offered to order the part needed and help
Warren put it in.
Now understand, the car could not be driven
so another of Warren's Friends has a tow dolly
and he came and hauled it 45 minutes to the first
friend's garage. Another friend lent us a tool
that lifts the engine so that you can work
This was such a joint effort with those who
know us and love us...for some strange reason.
We are so appreciative!
The car has been restored!
For a price tag of just around
$500...after the alignment that
still needs to be completed.
Mikey begins classes next month
in Kennett Square at Longwood Gardens
and we were struggling to know what to
do about his transportation.
He provided a way!
Thanks be to Him and to our
many generous friends!
Oh, and the interview at Longwood went
very well yesterday. We enjoyed meeting
the new Department Head and loved discussing
the possibilities. Only God knows what the
but His plans are
just fine with us!
He has proven Himself
faithful over and over
again in our lives.
