Normally this becak is a taxi, but I asked the owner of this one if I could try out his wheels! Since living in Asia Pacific, I have been intrigued for some time with the thought of attempting to drive a becak! For any of you that might also end up driving a becak some day, it is a good idea to ask where the brakes are BEFORE you sail off in a whirl of excitement! The story did have a happy ending nonetheless, besides some moments of panic. And not only do I praise the Lord MORE after that hard work-out for having “automated” wheels to go to school, meet with people and be involved in ministry here. I also was reminded how my lessons on the becak are like my daily dependence on the Lord. It isn’t just when driving a becak that I need to slow down and get direction first!
