Time for our “CAN I GET AN AMEN” story of the day! At “THE MORNING BULL” we believe in the power of positivity. We believe there are more good people than bad in the world, and we believe that goodness should be celebrated when you find it!
If you’ve listened to this show for very long, you know that we don’t believe in coincidences and this morning, another story to make you go hmmmm.
Last year, Beryl and Doug Good won a community raffle in the remote, little community of St. John, New Zealand. The Goods said they have been blessed in life and they took the raffle as a sign to do something for the small, but growing community – after talking with town leader – The Goods decided to add to raffle funds, then buy and donate an ambulance to St John.
While there hadn’t been a lot of emergencies in their town – they knew as it continued to grow it would good to have in service. So, this past November, the Goods and community leaders got together and the ambulance was named the DOBEGOOD (a combination of their names), it was then blessed and put to use. Now that would be a good AMEN, but there is more.
In March, Doug said his wife Beryl decided it was time to spruce up for spring. She went to work and at the end of the afternoon slipped and fell after painting the front door and porch.
She was bleeding badly and had a severely broken arm. So Doug ran inside and called 911 – and that’s when the same ambulance they had donated months before came and saved her.
Beryl, who is 71 years old, said “I was very surprised and excited when I saw Dobegoo turn up to take me to North Shore Hospital. I was impressed with how the stretcher turned into a chair when we arrived at the hospital and how wonderful….(they) were in treating and driving me.”
This was Beryl’s first time she had ever been in an ambulance. She said, “It was a joke really when Dobegoo turned up – I had always hoped I would never need to go in an ambulance, let alone the one we bought.
So where ever you are in the kitchen or in the car…can throw your hand in the air, “CAN I GET AN AMEN” for this … Always focused on the good news, and if you ever see a story that would make a great amen email it in at George@thebullhouston.com
