We spent the week with family celebrating Christmas. 
On our way home, our suburban broke down. It was an obviously frustrating thing to happen at the end of a fun week, however it was neat to see God at work! About 5 miles before it broke down, we were in a parking lot and we prayed for our continued trip home.
 I felt the Holy Spirit nudge me to pray not for safety, but that God would be glorified in our trip home. So we broke down about a mile outside of a large town (which, could have been a lot worse!).  Before we went on this trip (about 4 days before leaving), Liz felt that we should get a AAA membership. So with this brand new membership, we had 100 miles of free towing. We broke down exactly 99 miles away from our house! On this 99 mile journey, I was able to share the Gospel with our young tow truck driver. At the end of the night, I was able to pray with him (he didn’t make a decision to receive Christ, but we prayed together nonetheless) and he had tears in his eyes as he said no one has ever prayed for/with him before. I was able to get his contact information and hope to keep in touch with him.
At the end of all this, I realized I had made several goals for 2016, and one of them was to witness to a complete stranger. God gave me an opportunity on December 31, in a situation that could have just been disappointing all the way around. To Him be the glory! Excited to be used by a God who keeps the journey exciting!
