WHAT IN THE WORLD?

This week our son-in-law, Rev. Jim Evans, was hurrying down the interstate highway in Tennessee, delivering a large new crane truck to its destination. He came upon another, just like his, stopped by the side of the road.

Jim quickly cell phoned his boss. “Do we have another of our trucks in my area?” he asked. Yes, it was theirs.

Turning his truck at the next exit and returning he found the driver prone on the seat, desperately ill. The man, though, declined Jim’s help.

Sencing the man was near delirium,, Jim insisted on taking the man to a Knoxville hospital. Calling ahead, the man’s family was notified and met them at the hospital.

The intensive care physician told Jim the man was lapsing into a diabetic coma and would, I all likelihood have died if he had not rescued him.

While our son-in-law was loading the man into his truck, another of their trucks whizzed by.

THANK GOD FOR A FEW JIMS
