I am so excited to tell you about God’s faithfulness through an experience we had this weekend.
In February, Rebekah told me that a two of her friends were having trouble raising support for their missions trip expenses. I began praying for ways to help. God used several things that I was reading to prompt me to pray: “Lord, I have two hands and am willing to work. What can I do?”
After much prayer, I felt as though the Lord would have me do a yard sale to try to raise support. I talked to my mom, sisters, and mother in law to see if they would be willing to donate a few things to try to raise money. They would! A bake sale was suggested. Well, word spread, and grew. Donations started coming in. My family room became the donation center.
All last week, people stopped by our house with boxes for the missions benefit sale. It was really surreal.
And all week we had a 30% chance of rain hanging over our heads. But I asked several women to please pray “Beautiful Weather.”
Several times during the week I prayed, “Lord, I would like a thousand dollars. Could you bring the people?”
Well, God blessed our effort. Not only was the weather absolutely amazing, we had a steady flow of customers! Our total was over $1400!
I am just thanking God for His goodness!
I want to thank all of the ladies who cleaned out closets, donated, baked, prayed, called to encourage, told me they were praying. The unity of the Spirit is a bond of peace.
I want to thank all of the guys who came out to eat our pies.
To God be the Glory!
