God Provides $5,000
I am pleased to say that we are part of an amazing community, the body of Christ. Last week I sent an email to a five friends who I know as fellow prayer partners just seeking them out for encouragement and prayer due to a little bit of a crisis we were having as a family with our car situation. To my amazement one of the brothers instantly called and offered to let us barrow his car for about five days which really went the distance for us through a busy weekend.
The next day I received a call from one of them with an encouraging word that followed up with a notice that himself and another brother in Christ were going to be asking their networks to bring together funds for Anna and I to purchase another used vehicle. Within 24 hours of them notifying me that they were going to start raising funds I was with them in their offices and they were telling me that they had already had 40 people respond equaling $5,000. This was the exact amount that they had felt the Lord ask them to try and receive.
We are now in the process of searching for a car. It is amazing to see how God stirred just two men to do something for us in our time of need and how many others responded to that call. We are so blessed to be able to receive such a generous gift and even more grateful to be part of such an amazing body of Christ that meets the needs of those who need out of generous hearts and an unconditional love. Thank you to all of you who poured into this fund for us with such amazing generosity.
“And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”
