My wife and I are trying to save money so we can transition towards full-time ministry. We've made some significant headway and we're amazed at how the Lord has blessed us in recent years.
However, 2 months ago the transmission in my wife's truck (2002 GMC Envoy) completely failed. $2,600 later it was back on the road again. Last month the same truck overheated because of a cooling system failure. $900 later and it was back on the road again. In both cases we had the cash on hand to cover the repairs, but they ate into our savings. Not too happy about that.
