Need a Ride?

Yesterday, a really exciting thing happened. We were able to say YES to a request we normally have to say no to.

We got a call from a gal who needed a ride the very next day to a place that is outside of our normal service area. It can be difficult to find a volunteer the day before the ride is needed. it can be even MORE difficult to find someone willing to make a 4-hour round trip on behalf of someone else.

Yet, our volunteer who took the call yesterday didn’t say no. She said she would pray and she would see what she could do. Then she started making phone calls.

The very first person she called said she would do it.

I’m not sure why we are still surprised when we see God working. He does it all the time. But it was exciting, nonetheless, and we rejoiced together that this sometimes hard-to-meet need was met in a very short span of time. And we’re grateful for our volunteers who recognized the urgency of the need and stepped up to be the hands and feet of Jesus in our own community this week.
