BAM!!! The tire popped right next to my ear!
I had just left after unloading the truck in our new place in Ionia, MI. I was driving to drop off a few things at my folks’ in North Carolina when I noticed that the trailer had a flat tire. I had already driven through Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, and some of Michigan and the trailer decided to get a flat tire. A road side assistance company had already checked the tire and couldn’t find any problems. After switching out the valve stem, my tire was going flat once more. I decided to refill the tire every 100 miles to try to make it to North Carolina and deal with it there.
On the third refill stop, the sidewall of the tire popped and I thought something had exploded nearby. Thankfully, I wasn’t hurt!!!
The tire was fixed and it turned out that the metal wheel was to blame! I drove into the night and arrived in North Carolina a little after 1 am. I met Jessica and Adelina, who were both already asleep. We had completed our move!!!
We are now recovering from our move and spending some time with my family before we begin the long year in Michigan. This year will be spent learning how to fix airplanes, growing closer as a family, preparing ourselves for missionary life, learning how to thrive in a new location, and hopefully spending a little time flying airplanes for hire!
Please pray for us as we…
- Look for a church where we can fellowship, grow, and serve.
- Start school and learn about where we are living.
- Desire to be a blessing and a light to the people at the school and the apartment complex where we are living.
Thank you so much and God Bless!!!
