Wow!! It’s been a while since I posted. That is sad, because there is so much great stuff (that’s a technical term) going on.
We continue to see the HUGE need in this community for a place like Herbies. It is currently so difficult to get financing for anything (homes, vehicles etc) that folks who are rebuilding their credit rating need a place that is willing to give them a loan on the basis of something other than a credit score. At Herbies, we base our credit approvals on Job Time and Residence Time, NOT CREDIT SCORE.
Together, we and our wonderful customers enter into a partnership. We provide safe, reliable transportation at 9.9% interest. We also include a 2 year 24,000 mile warranty. We also report to all three major Credit reporting agencies when our customers make their payments on time.
It is easy to see that this partnership meets the transportation needs of our customers while it give Herbies the opportunity to operate a profitable business which employs many area residents. It is a WIN / WIN arrangement.
I’ll end with a terrific prayer that was written by the Greeley City Manager recently. It is a blessing on our wonderful community.
Jesus your word tells us that we do not have because we do not ask and we do not ask with the correct motives. Just as you were knocking on the door of the Laodicean Church, we hear you knocking on Greeley’s door and, as her City Manager, I want to lead the way and open this door to you because we know your heart is to bless Greeley so that Greeley may be a blessing and that your Kingdom would be advanced through her. Your enemy and ours belittles us daily effectively binding our ability to reflect your Glory. You are Yahweh Sa-bay -oth, the Lord of Hosts, therefore we ask you to gather your heavenly hosts to battle these demonic strongholds on our behalf this evening as we worship you. We request this that Greeley may reflect your Glory and be known as a community for its generosity and kindness, for unity rather than division, for its ability to not only meet the needs of the poor but empower them to bring wholeness to others, for its ability to not only help prisoners find freedom but equipping them to be bearers of the good news, as a place where those who were once blind are now able to see and experience the beauty of Your Kingdom and as a community anointed with a unified vision to not only release the oppressed but raise them up to thrive as your image bearers.
