:: Take 3 - Inspiring Devotionals ::
Dodie decided to drive across America and see the sights she had taught about as a schoolteacher. Traveling alone in a camper truck, she started out. You’ll love this story.
One afternoon, rounding a curve on I-5 near Sacramento in rush-hour traffic, a water pump blew on Dodie’s truck. She was tired, scared, alone - - and no one stopped to help. Finally, she leaned up against the camper and prayed, 'Please God, send me an angel...preferably one with mechanical experience.' In less than five minutes, a big Harley motorcycle drove up, and an enormous man with long hair, a beard, and tattooed arms jumped off his bike, and without a word, went to work on the truck. The schoolteacher was speechless. As he finished the task, she finally got up the courage to say, 'Thanks.' Noticing her surprise at the whole ordeal, the man looked at her and said, 'Don't judge a book by its cover. You never know who you're talking to.'
And by the way, we love angels that ride Harleys! Every December for 25 years, hundreds of Harley riders have come to the Mission bringing gifts to the children of Skid Row. Even Pastor Greg Laurie rides a Harley, and he rides to Skid Row with dozens of fellow riders from Harvest!
Hebrews tells us, “Be ready with a meal or a bed when it's needed. Why, some have extended hospitality to angels without ever knowing it!”We never know who comes to us here at the Mission. Please help us have food ready when “hungry angels” come to our doors.
