My father was a helper. He would help anyone at anytime.
We would be all dressed up to go somewhere and if he saw someone stuck on the side of the road, we would pull over and help them out.
He was always into cars, motorcycles, boats, and basically anything that had a motor and could go fast! He went to trade school for auto mechanics after high school.
I wasn’t the best student, but he taught me the basics of car care.
Unfortunately, as I got older, the things that I should have learned, I didn’t, as I found myself short on money and long on car troubles.
I prayed to God many times that my car would start in the morning so I could get to work. No money for parts, much less labor!
I told God that if I could make a difference for people in my situation, I would gladly help them.
7 years ago, I started a group that met at my house in Atascocita called Hot Rods & Harleys.
We would work on anything that we could get our hands on, and that morphed into helping people who were in need.
When we moved to Montgomery, the house we bought, was bought not so much for the house, as it was for a place to build a shop to continue that journey.
I dreamed and saved but didn’t have enough to build the shop for a few years and wondered if it was even supposed to happen.
One night on the way home from church in the pouring, dark, cold rain, I saw a lady and a little girl walking along the side of Hwy 105. I pulled over to offer them a ride and was surprised to see that I knew them from church, and taught her daughter in my class.
I asked what had happened and found out that their vehicle had been in the shop for months.
At that moment, I knew I had to do whatever it took to make sure that this kind of thing didn’t keep happening without some intervention.
I begged and borrowed money to build a shop to repair cars for single mothers, widows, and wives of deployed military.
We don’t charge anything for labor and try to help with parts as we can. We also give vehicles away to those in need.
The future is bright for God’s Garage. We are looking forward to the future, as we train people to help others, and are anticipating becoming a full time venture, with mechanics working every day.
If you’ve ever wondered if you could make a real and tangible difference in the lives of people around you, you can.
We are endeavoring to meet physical needs of transportation, spiritual needs of guidance, and even financial budgeting courses for those who receive a
