Man I almost forgot our big one.

My husband needed to go to Montana to visit a lab for his work. We decided to make a family trip of it. Planned a week long vacation in Helena MT. We are about 5 hours into the drive when our car over heats. We pull off at the port of entry in Sheridan, WY and we are stumped. No idea what we are going to do. We have 0 cell reception. A really wonderful guy came over and helped us get the vehicle to a shop in town after saying he can see that it's our hose leaking. So we get there and replace the hose. A pretty easy job requiring a screwdriver and pliers. We thank the guy who told us God told him to help us. Weird. We get in the car and decide to grab some food before we leave town. Low and behold, over heating again. The kids and I walk to McDonald's while my husband attempts to find out what is wrong with the car. A wonderful man pulls up to him and tows the Dodge to a mechanic shop. Then comes for us and takes all of us to a car rental place so we can rent a car to continue our trip. He arranged for our vehicle to be fixed while we were gone. Told us God told him to help us.

It was a devastating time. Our first real problem while traveling. Without the help of those men I have no idea what we would have done.

Needless to say, we've gone back to Church. I figure if God sends you a sign as clear as that, best listen. And we ended up at a Church full of people we actually like, who like us. It's like we found our home.
