Earlier this week some missionary friends of ours traveling in an area that had just gotten snow mixed with ice and rain had an accident. The van they were traveling in hit an icy patch on the highway, spun around and hit a guard rail then came to rest facing oncoming traffic. No one was hurt but everyone was shook up and there was some damage to the vehicle.
We travel around 5000 miles a month and satan knows how important our vehicle is to what we are doing now. Please pray for God’s hand of protection upon us and any missionaries you know. A lot of mission conferences are scheduled for the winter time and this year has been very icy. Even when the roads are clear, the results of the weather are lots of pot holes and other road damage. The trip we are on right now has shown us miles of highway at a time with more potholes than flat road. The number of cars sitting on the side of the road with multiple flat tires or broken suspension is scary. I have never seen the roads this tore up and dangerous.
Right now, I average one oil change a month as well as an alignment and tire balancing every six months because of potholes and road damage. I’ve already had to replace a control arm and my struts are starting to make noises. The weather and road conditions are only going to make things worse. Please pray for our car and traveling mercies.
Please pray for traveling safety and mercy for ALL missionaries.
