God Keeps Providing
In the list of things that happened, I mentioned that we replaced our car. There’s a God story with that.
God provided this excellent car for us
When we arrived in Scotland last fall, there was a car waiting for us here. It was given to us by some friends who felt prompted by God to sow their car into what God is doing here. It has been a tremendous blessing to us for nearly a year as we settled into our new lives here.

I had taken out an insurance policy that was really more of a savings vehicle 28 years ago when I first joined the Navy. I forgot about it and in nearly 20 years of marriage it never came up until that letter arrived at our office in Colorado.
Long story short, there was enough money in that account to purchase an excellent used car!
