Serendipity in a Snowstorm; Best You Best Me meets V Foundation

AuthorRichard Zaher

On February 20, 2019, I woke up in the early morning and saw that a snowstorm had just begun. I grabbed my jacket and went outside to see if anyone was stranded.

I headed out in my Mercedes-Benz with towing equipment and a shovel in the back. After cruising around for a while, it seemed no one needed my help. Thinking about going home, I asked God to direct me to someone who needed me.

A few minutes later, I came across a car in a ditch. The ladies inside told me their car had slid off the road on the way to a V Foundation convention. I assessed the situation, shoveled snow from around the car’s front tires, and used towing equipment to pull it back onto the road. The ladies looked happy and grateful as they drove off, waving goodbye. I was grateful, too, for being able to help.
