54-Year-Old Women Who Biked 16 Miles To Work For 8 Years Gets Incredible Gift From A Cop

Caring and compassionate eyes are all around us. Whether it is a caring co worker or an observant police officer, people and cared and blessed in their time of trouble!

54 year old Jo Meade who works as a dishwasher at Cracker Barrel was a reliable worker despite not having a proper commutation facility of her own! She was willing to ride 3 buses; a trip which takes two hours from her Lansing, Michigan, apartment to Cracker Barrel in Okemos! If she wasn’t commuting by bus she was making a 16 mile round trip on her Panama Jack bike to make sure she is on time !

Fortunately a Lansing Police Officer Trevor Arnold took notice of her and was compassionate to get her a better mode of commutation, at least a used car! Along with the car dealership and a community of donors they could manage to surprise Meade with a gift- 2007 model Ford Taurus worth $4,000! With 6 months of paid car insurance this was really a heart racing gift to this hardworking woman!

Thank God,such acts of loving kindness are repeated!!! In a similar story, Linda Walton was also known for her reliability at work despite of her 3 hour commuting trouble! Here a co worker’s eyes were opened to Walton’s trouble and all the employees from her organization contributed money to help lessen the burden of such a long commute for Walton with a car of her own!

Lansing Woman Surprised with Car


When Lansing Police Officer Trevor Arnold found about a local woman who has been taking the bus – or biking 13 miles to work for years, he decided to take action. The Lansing Police Department teamed up with several local partners to surprise Jo Meade, and give her a faster, and safer way to get around town.

Verse of the Day

Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God. — John 3:20-21 (NIV)
