Hit-and-Run

I spoke with my dear husband this evening, and learned that God's hand of protection continues to keep him. There has been some nasty weather in the DFW area, and the highways are all wet. As he was travelling in the slow lane, his car was suddenly struck by another vehicle, and was sent spinning on the highway, coming to rest next to a guard rail, facing the wrong way. Amazingly, the car was not damaged very much, so he pulled over to the other side to where the truck that hit him had come to a stop. The fellow asked him to pull over with him further up the highway, and then proceeded to take off without waiting for Daniel, much faster than was safe on the slick highway... Who knows why he did that. All I know is that the Lord protected my love, and I am so grateful!

Wow, praise the Lord he's okay. So what's Daniel doing in the states while you're in Guatemala? Just curious no need to answer if you don't want to.

I hear that there's been several flooding in Texas, and 2 dead I think.

Don't worry - we're on very good terms! ;-)

I mentioned here an elderly couple who had been doing some short-term missions work, and needed someone to guide them back up through Mexico. Daniel agreed to help them out, and it also happened that his mom's husband found him a little car to drive back down! Praise the Lord! (That will make running errands a LOT cheaper. Gas is about $4/gal here.)

Yes, it had been raining really badly and a few days before that, it was a snow/ice storm. You know we have crazy weather here!

Glad he is Okay.
