Living the Dream

"Local youth leader had a dream to own a jet boat for his family to ski and wake board. Six months ago they found a boat they wanted. They decided they would take a look with the mind to attempt to purchase it for around $10,000. When they went to look over the boat and confirm the purchase, the owner (whom they did not know prior to this visit) stood in the boat with youth leader and said “my wife and I have decided that we want to give you this boat.” The youth leader was shocked and didn’t know what to do. The funniest response was when he was driving home –he glanced in his rearview mirror and was startled to see the boat now attached and following him!"
