Ben [changed] the brakes on the van of a family whose husband is deployed to Djibouti. We got the van inspected, and it failed for a mirror, two tires, four brakes, and a brake light. We took the car to the Oceana auto hobby shop where Ben did all the repairs. Cost not including parts: $30.00. Your ministry to him has reached the lives of others in need. The wife was astonished he did it so inexpensively. On top of that, Ben loved every minute of it. You guys have a great program. Thank you!!
