I had been laid off from a job right after I had open heart surgery. So cash was very tight. This job had provided a company vehicle so I had to buy a used car for cash. I was still unemployed and going to school a year later when my front brakes started to make a squealing sound. I spoke to Butch at "An Honest Days Work" automotive and Butch explained the least expensive way to get the car fixed while keeping it in good running condition. Butch replaced my front brake pads for less than half of the cost I had been quoted around town. He didn't try to talk me into doing a bunch of things that really didn't need to be done at the time. Just now I have had a ticking noise inside my engine and took my car to 5 different places. Only Butch from "An Honest Days Work" automotive gave the correct diagnosis that the car manufacturer gave and he quoted the work for about half the price. Out of all the auto repair places I talked to, Butch is the only one I would trust to do the work as he is not in it just for the money. He is honest and will not give you some shuck and jive story trying to get you to spend a bunch of extra money on your car. I would recommend this part of the ministry to anyone that has a car that needs major or minor repairs. You will be treated with honesty and sincerity, something you don't always find in the auto repair business. This place left me with a healthy attitude and peace of mind, and no worries or stress usually involved with expensive expenditures on ones car. I left knowing that I wasn't being taken advantage of and that my car was going to continue to run properly because of the work they did. Stress and worry is a killer. It not only affects your mind but also your body and as a person that has had a double bypass, I don't need that stress and worry in my life. They could call this place "Peace of Mind Automotive" as they remove the fear of dealing with unscrupulous mechanics.

What, if any, change in your life has this group encouraged?
Well, the founder, Farris Robertson was very instrumental personally in helping me get clean and sober. He gave me his time and shared his experience with me during a very rough time of my life and helped me get on a path of Spirituality and more importantly showed me that I was loved by him, others and God and made sure I had a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
