A Letter from the Owners
March 27, 2020
We hope you and your family are continuing to remain in good health. We truly appreciate your hard work and your continued commitment to serving our customers during difficult times.
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic which presents both a health threat and economic concern we as owners of Milton Martin Toyota, want to take a moment to encourage you personally. We know the uncertainty of our economy and our day-to-day life can cause feelings of anxiety, worry and fear. While we cannot predict what will happen in the days ahead, our personal certainty in this life and through difficult times is built on our faith in God.
To give hope and speak peace in the face of these circumstances, we wanted to share with you a message about choosing Faith over Fear that was given on the National Day of Prayer that President Trump called on March 15th.
We also want to assure you that during this unprecedented time in life that we as owners will continue to pray for your family and will do all we can to be there for you. Akio Toyoda, President of Toyota Motor Corp, shared a message yesterday with dealers assuring us of the health and strength of Toyota and we want to echo that to you. Challenging days may still be ahead for us but we are certain that similar to challenges faced by our company in the past that we will continue to grow, learn and become stronger than ever before. Aiko said, “Remember that this too shall pass and never forget that together there is nothing that we cannot overcome.” We would like to add to that there is nothing we cannot overcome when we place faith in something greater than ourselves…we when place our faith, hope and future in God.
We are here if you need counsel or prayer in the days ahead and encourage you to lean on the support of your managers as well. They have all weathered difficult circumstances in our business in the past and will be steady guidance for you. Continue to serve our customers with a spirit of excellence and stay encouraged about better days ahead.
We will get through this together.
