Years ago, someone used to post JAV stories on the forum... does anyone have a link for those?  They were classic!

I don't have link, but this happened just yesterday...



Well, Praise the Lord for a terrible day. We had 19 kids in children's church, and the church van broke down at the church. I was taking half the kids home in my own van when the left front axle collapsed on a busy highway. They got the church van started again, and it broke down in a crowded area of narrow streets and two construction projects.

After a tow truck had brought my van back to my house, I took my SUV and went hunting for the church van. I found the driver in tears, with half the kids still with her.

I sent her and the kids off in my vehicle while I waited for a mechanic. We got the van started, but it broke down in an intersection. I got it started and it broke down again. Then the mechanic showed up again, because he had been trapped by construction and one-way streets.
After more than an hour's work, we had to leave the van where it was.

During all of this, I remembered how Jim Vineyard taught us to soldier on when things get rough. I remembered his quote "God has to let the Devil win some of the time, or he might get discouraged and quit."

Jim Vineyard really did teach us some valuable lessons.

Sounds like you need to buy a van, might want to replace the church van as well if it’s that unreliable.
