In a heartwarming gesture, a woman named Stephanie Hamren surprised her father by purchasing his beloved Ford car that he had sold 21 years ago to pay for her education.
As she handed her father the keys to the car, he noticed a chain with the inscription of Matthew 19:29 that said, “And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life.”
After the surprise reveal, Martin and Hamren started restoring the car together, but their efforts were halted when Hamren’s mother fell ill, and the family’s finances were spent on medical bills. However, car enthusiasts stepped up to support the family by donating almost $3,000 to help with the car’s repairs.
Hamren expressed her gratitude and said that finding the car, getting the money, and bringing it across the US without any problems was a blessing from God. Her father was overjoyed and said that God is good to make this happen for him and his family.
The heartwarming video of Martin receiving his car was posted on YouTube in August 2014 and has garnered over 4 million views and 200 comments. Viewers expressed their admiration for the sweet surprise, with one person calling it a wonderful gesture and another expressing love and respect for the family.
This heartwarming story of a daughter’s love for her father has touched the hearts of people all over the world, reminding us of the power of family and the kindness of strangers.
