Yes…there was an “accident” but then again…it wasn’t an accident. God’s hand and your prayers were evident throughout our entire experience…and it was good! THANKS for praying.
We did get our vehicle from the shop by 1 p.m. as promised for Tuesday. We didn’t have enough time to make it all the way home safely as the trip is not all that easy during the light hours let alone in darkness. Our co-workers, Brock and Heather Hower and their 4 ‘young-uns’ stayed with us through the entire situation and accompanied us all the way home today from Puebla where we spent the night in a hotel there. We can’t thank them enough for their care and friendship through it all.
The vehicle only lacks a strip of molding for the back door but I’ll probably have to get that in the U.S. and install it (very simple procedure…line it up right-side-up, push the thingies through the holes and that’s it).
I hope to write a note about the whole event as some of the details are rather noteworthy…in that they show the hand of God in this situation. It was no accident. Even mistakes made ended up making things turn out as well as they could have. God gets the credit for all of this…can’t wait to write it up and share it with you!
For now…I’m wiped out…the drive is always rather stressful and tiring. The Best Western gives a great Expedia rate but to put it in a similar way as they’d say in Mexico (in Spanish)…”we awoke to find that we had frozen to death.” A hotel without a/c is not uncommon in Mexico, especially at higher elevations like Puebla, but when the temps are in the 30s at night and the windows don’t shut completely and there’s no heat….brrrr…we just about did freeze last night! No doubt it affected our sleep as well.
Thanks for all who’ve been praying for us, especially during these past few days.
