Car Care Day

My church sponsors a bi-annual event to change the oil and perform safety checks on cars. The service is available to anyone and is mostly found useful by our older members and their friends. Today was the first time I was able to volunteer. After an assessment my mechanical skills I was promoted(?) to the car-wash and vacuum team-—which was fine with me.

I couldn’t help but feel pride for the leaders who organize this event and the real mechanics who volunteer their time at it. To me this is what the church should be about and I am glad to be a part.

Sounds like fun. Did you have a lot of cars?

I think we serviced between 12 and 15 cars.

It was a great day and I know that this is a great ministry for many people.

No, that's not me. Remember I didn't qualify to work under the hood! I'm part of the crack team of Metro auto detailers. That is a picture of Dave Carly.

One time I was very poor and borrowing a truck for the summer. Replacing two front tires neerly broke me. I was doing the best I could to make ends meet, but I was struggling for sure. I needed to get the truck serviced and was all out of money and this ministry just happened to be there when I needed it. It was a great blessing...
