I saw a message on those words by Steven Furtick. Sometimes it is hard to see the future when in a trial, a hurricane, a setback, or time of asking why? But God is always up to something, and it always works out for our good, in hindsight of course.
We drove our 1 ton Big Heart truck from Texas to Illinois to pick up a fifth wheel camper from the Balmers in Carthage, Illinois. We stayed a few days while the hitch was installed. We hooked up the camper and drove only 60 miles when we had transmission problems. Had it towed to a dealer that couldn't do the work and then had it towed again to Eric Palmers garage in LaHarpe. He had worked on our RV before and he said he would exchange the trans for a rebuilt one. He ordered the new one, and suffered a heart attack a few days later, and is recovering. The mechanic said it would be ready on Wednesday, but upon a test drive, the new one wasn't good. He had to order another one.
Upon that news, we borrowed a van from the Day family and went back to Chicago. I had an eye doctor appointment and needed to drive to Texas, but a friend arranged for free round trip flights ✈️. We have been home a few days and were able to go to Mexico and provide resources to help people in Mexico. Jaime from Melodys Orphanage is taking food and bibles to 600 families in the State of Hidalgo, MX. A heart ❤ to serve others is what Jaime and his family has, along with others.
We return to Chicago on Sunday and pick up the truck on Tuesday. The time we were able to spend with Lea and family is always to short. Our plans to go camping together were squashed by the truck problems, but, IT HAD TO HAPPEN. I dont know question things as much anymore, because I know of God's Goodness.
The Grennell family is busy getting things together after Mark's sudden death in January to raise money for Melodys Orphanage. It was his ❤ to fund God's work in Mexico 🇲🇽 . His son Matthew is going to run 100 miles to raise money. It called Papas Big Run 🏃♂️ in honor of his dad. They have a Gofundme site, or donations can be made to us designated for Melodys Orphanage.
