Kelly is a GREAT friend of Tiqvah and provides some exciting and unique enrichment opportunities. We are so thrilled he has been honored this way! Congratulations Kelly!!
Ryan Solida, a friend of Tiqvah and a local app developer, teaching some of our kids the basics of coding. Tiqvah is not only about body and soul, but also the mind. We strive to expose our kids to the jobs of the future.
So I just wanted to take a minute to share how awesome God is and how there are some really generous and kindhearted people in Canton!!
So around 7:30p Ms Karla gets a call from the crew out in Papa Smurf...something is wrong there is a tire pulling on the muffler and it’s stuck on the other tire. Ms Karla and I (Ms Lesley) head out with another van to get the rest of the kids home and see what in the world is going on.
Upon arrival it was true, a tire that was laying in a w...ater hole got caught on the muffler and pulled it down, jamming it against Papa Smurfs rear tire. And there Papa sat in the middle of the road.
AAA had been called with no real answer on when they would get to us. I went back to the church to get some saws so the Mr. Kelly could try to cut the tire. Upon my arrival and after trying the saws we got nowhere. And that’s when God stepped in for us...
A kind man with a work truck stopped by to see what in the world our issue was. He said he would go get his jack and come back and help us. And sure enough about 5 minutes later he and his friend returned to help. With a lot of pushing and pulling Mr. Kelly and these two neighborhood guys got the tire off and were able to bend the muffler so it wasn’t hitting our rear tire any longer.
These two men were such a blessing and so very kind and helpful. They were all dirty and sweaty when they got done. They didn’t have to stop and help but they did and we really couldn’t thank them enough! These were our two Tiqvah angels tonight, they came through and helped us big time!! Just another reminder that God’s got us 😉
Just wanted to show off our new addition in the sunlight since it was dark last night when I shared the video...I was a little excited! And still am, God is so good!! This may appear to be just a van but to us it’s so much more. To us it’s a way to reach more students in Canton who need hope. To us it’s security for our kids and dependability because they can still come to Tiqvah when they may not have reliable transportation. To us it’s a way to expose our kids to things they may not ever get a chance to experience. To us it’s a way to grow positively in our community and continue to do Gods work in Canton. To us it’s hope and a future. So again I say, thank you!!
