Have you ever driven past the world’s largest tire? No car is big enough to fit it. A car matching this tire would have to be 200 feet tall!
The Giant Uniroyal Tire has been around since the 1960s. The same people who designed the Empire State Building came up with the idea. At first, people rode in it as a Ferris wheel at the New York World’s Fair. The 80-foot ride drew two million visitors.
Now the tire sits along Interstate 94 outside of Detroit. It has welcomed people to the city for 50 years. Last Wednesday, visitors got to go inside the tire again. They could tell that it used to be a ride. They also saw that concrete held it down. What a tire!
Have you ever prayed for rain?
Farmers need rain to do their work. That’s true no matter where you live. Right now in Cambodia, people are having a ceremony. Cambodians get their traditions from two religions: Buddhism and Hinduism. At this ceremony, they ride in carriages drawn by oxen. They pray to their gods for rain. More than 80 percent of Cambodians are farmers. They think the ceremony will help their rice grow.
But only one person in the universe controls the rain—God. All rain shows His kindness to us!
Look at these shoes. They are very flat, light, and old. They have spikes on the bottom. If you had to run a race, would you pick these shoes?
A man named Roger Bannister did. Of course, when he used them in May of 1964, they weren’t old . Mr. Bannister was an English medical student. God gave him a gift for running. He did something no one had ever done before. Wearing these shoes, he ran a mile in less than four minutes. His took three minutes and 59.4 seconds. Talk about a close call! Since that day, others have broken Mr. Bannister’s record. But few have forgotten him. Now his shoes are going to auction. They will probably fetch between $47,000 and $78,000!

Do you hear that? It’s the sound of a bee’s stomach growling!
America’s bee population has been shrinking. Bees are hungry. People are worried. Bees can’t live in areas where only corn or grass grows. Pesticides, mites, and diseases harm them too.
The U.S. government wants to create seven million acres of bee-friendly land. The project should be done in five years. Many scientists are saying, “What a good idea!”
Lawmakers have a responsibility to God. They must use their resources wisely. The project will cost millions of dollars. But losing bees could cost billions!
