Before Shabbos I promised you another great story from Rav Dror Moshe Coussoto. This one is a must read.
Rabbi Yosef Dan and Rabbi Moshe Tzafati are both Israeli students of Rabbi Arush who learn in the Yeshiva. Once they went to Canada to do hafatza, to speak to people about emuna and the teachings of Rav Arush. While they were standing on a street in front of a supermarket somewhere in Toronto, another Israeli man happened by. When the man saw Reb Yosef and Reb Moshe, two poor Israelis standing there somewhere in Canada selling books and CDs, he asked what they were doing there. They asked him if he had ever heard of Rabbi Shalom Arush. He said no. They asked him if he was married and he said that he was not. "And what's going to be with me", he said. He had been looking for a wife for a long time. Suddenly the avrechim (married Torah Scholars) said to him: "Hey don't worry. We have the book for you!" They gave him a copy of The Garden of Peace, by Rav Arush and told him: "Just read this book and you will merit to find a wife. The man became excited: "Are you kidding me, I'll really find a wife? Just then a 4x4 Jeep sped past at about 140 mph and came to a halt in the supermarket's parking lot. Out came an Israeli woman. Standing there, she sees three shocked looking Israeli men. One of them said she could have only learned to drive like that in Israel. They laughed and conversed for a while. In the end, the man bought the book and he and the lady went to do their shopping. Reb Moshe Tzafati said that in three months he got a call from the man who told him: "Hey, do you remember that crazy woman driver? Well, She and I are getting married!
