The Missing Pallet

You will by now have gathered that since our move to No. 130, things have been a little challenging – to put it very mildly!

Recently the Minister was speaking to a Bishop and telling him of all that has happened to us.  The Bishop replied saying ” We should stop praying for grace for you and start praying for protection instead!!!!”.

When we left Scotland to moved to England, we had to leave ALL our earthly possessions in storage up in the Highlands for we didn’t have any firm plans.  We didn’t even have a permanent place to stay.  We had to stay in a tiny self catering place for a few weeks.  It was impossible to arrange a viewing from the Highlands and landlords always insisted on seeing you in person.  We almost parted company with 500GBP to a fraudster who had posted beautiful photos of a flat online which didn’t exist!

Since I was beginning to show signs of improvement, we decided that it was time to arrange for us to be reunited with our things in storage and so the arrangement was made.

The day of the delivery arrived.  Initially I was sad as the delivery of our items would mean severing the last tie that we had with my beloved Scotland however I was super excited on that day of the delivery.

The items were delivered in a pallet and I immediately recognised some of the boxes.   We decided to remove some of the cling film to make sure that none of the boxes were missing.

Shock and Horror awaited us.  We didn’t recognise any of the boxes after all.  Something horrible had gone wrong.

The Minister immediately rang the storage company and explained the situation.  They rang us back a few days later to say that they cannot find our things.  None of it!!!!  They included 80 boxes of the Ministers books.  How can that be?
