Settlement

Just wanted to let you all know that we have been on pins and needles waiting to hear if our insurance company was going to pay us for our truck that burned. We got word today that they have totaled the truck – how could they not? – and they will settle with us as soon as I sign some papers for the procurement of the truck title which was burned in the glove box. Praise the Lord! We will soon have money to get a trailer, which Mark has deemed best, to cart the motorcycle and my car around with. Thank you to those who were praying with me for this!

Sunday reflections

As you can well imagine, I have been doing a lot of thinking about the fire and I have a testimony to share. I’ve been thinking about how the engine kept exploding and spewing out molten stuff as it burned. If it had done that while the truck was still attached to the RV, the RV could have caught fire. If it had happened while Mark was down in front of it trying to get the truck unhitched from the RV, it could have been much, much worse. God is good!

Family help and friendly prayers!

Mark has a sister in Ogden, Sharon, who brought us her car to use for a couple of days, and her son, Trevor, is going to help her get around while we have her car. My family has also been helping us, and I also want to thank all of you who have been praying for us. All prayers are gratefully received!

I asked Mark, “Why are they honking?” He checked his rearview mirror and said, “We’re smoking.” He pulled over to the side of the road and got out, then opened the door and yelled, “The truck’s on fire! Call 911!”
