Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, unto thee do we give thanks: for that thy name is near thy wondrous works declare. (Psa 75:1)

Yesterday the insurance adjuster (Steve) came to the house to look at the car. We had prayed for a just settlement in terms of Scriptural principles (Exodus 22).

He looked the car over and then he set about working with me to get the most from the company without totaling the car. As you can imagine, a 1992 Toyota is not worth much, but the check (should arrive Monday or Tuesday) will equal (or exceed the Kelley Blue Book value of the car).

I shook hands with Steve before he left and told him he would be in my prayers that day. He said, "Are you a Christian, then?" I told him I was, and he said his father had been a minister.

Anyway, I want to thank all of you for your prayers, and I invite you to also give thanks to the covenant-keeping God who, despite my faltering faith, has once again shown Himself gracious to those upon whom He has set His love.

We're not out of the woods yet, though, because even though I rec'd more than I had hoped, it's difficult to find safe & reliable transportation for that amount. (And, frankly, I think my present vehicle is too far gone to repair.)

Thanks to all who have held us up in prayer, and I ask you to continue with the following requests:
  1. That God will bless Steve for treating me as he would want to be treated;
  2. That we will end up with a good, safe reliable vehicle;
  3. That the medical settlement for my back (thankfully, it seems to be principally soft tissue damage to the muscles) will be fair and just;
  4. That God will receive glory and praise before men for these events.
