God has been so good to us
… in somewhat amusing ways!
Our home in small town Tuxford Saskatchewan has been such an oasis for us. Our little house is the warmest one that we have ever had. It was a true miracle costing only $37,000.
In the front of the house you will notice my fleet of Geo Metros, ranging from 1991 to 1998. I don’t know how to shop for a car; I never have. These cars just found me.
We recently found a 1997 Toyota Corolla with only 113,000 kms on it; pictured in the middle. It is the only automatic and is used for the few long trips that Jennie is able to be a part of.
There are some very interesting stories about these cars. The prices ranged from $900 to $2,000 each. Today you couldn’t get $1,000 out of any one of them; and yet, 75% of the driving for our ministry is done with these vehicles. Forty-hour trips are not uncommon. They just don’t seem to wear out; much like the sandals worn by the Israelites in the desert. Some of these cars take 12 inch tires, which they have almost stopped making. Recently, I found 5 sets of tires plus 2 sets of snow tires for $25.00 per tire. On top of that they are new.
We have a good friend, named Dave Thiessen, who has blessed us so greatly. When we do run into a mechanical problem from time to time, he is just a phone call away and ready to assist with free repairs.
I could go on about the many interesting ways that God has provided for us. We are truly thankful.
