Good News Garage

Troy was unemployed and homeless, sleeping in his car in a Walmart parking lot. Then his car with 216,000 miles stopped running, Good News Garage had it towed to Trinity Lutheran Church to attempt repairs only to find the engine had failed. Troy had multiple job interview offers but no way to get to them. When all seemed bleak God sends a wonderful car to us out of the blue, the car had just had about $2,000 in repairs done to it when it was decided to donate it to Good News Garage.

Out of the blue again came a partnership with St. Edna’s Catholic Church to pay for all expenses to transfer title, plates, and pay for a year of car insurance. Troy got his car on Tuesday morning and had interviews lined up by Wednesday afternoon. It seems that God sometimes waits till the last minute so that we know it has his hand making things happen.
