I’ve had many miracles in my life and just recently an outpouring of them as our little family prepares to go to Kenya Africa to Mentor Families as part of a humanitarian project. First, I just want to testify of a truth, when you put God first and you are on His errand and it is His will, all things work together for your good. All things flow and when you replace fear with faith, Miracles happen!
So our family goes to Kenya on the 27th of May to serve the families of Kenya, to learn from them as well as teach them principles and skills that will allow them greater freedom in thinking and producing. I have the heart of a humanitarian, and have known since I was 18 that I wanted to travel the world and give service of this kind. Africa is the beginning of this for our family, because I’ve also known that we are a “missionary” family, we serve. My children, ages 9 and 10 have been working hard to earn funds and now it is coming down to the wire and we need to get plane tickets and passports, as well as pay a few fees for the travel, needless to say we need miracles.
It was this mindset that I went into the week last week, willing to sell the furniture we own as well as anything we did not really need. On Saturday, it was my 3rd weekend in a row that I did a yard sale from donated items of others. It was slow that day and I just kept praying and believing. It was getting in the late afternoon and we had only had a few visitors and a few donations. My sons friend came over and I began to just talk with the Dad, for some reason, I just began to share what we were doing and explaining to him the purpose of the yard sale and our mission to Africa. He listened politely, said good bye and I continued on my way, starting to clean up from the yard sale and taking some items back to a donation center. When I returned, I found him looking at the remaining items, he had picked a pair of boots and a pizza card and asked if he could by them. He handed me a wad of cash and explained that he felt prompted to give his money that he was saving for a guitar. He is a music therapist and his guitar broke and he was saving for another, but felt prompted by God to give it to me. I thanked him with tears in my eyes and we talked a bit about his work, then he left. I never looked at the amount of cash while we were talking, after he left, I began to count it…100, 200, 300. 300 Dollars! I bowed my head and cried. Praised the Lord and then went on with my day with a spring in my step. Well, it didn’t end there, later that evening, this same man came to pick up his daughter. He asked for me at the door and then proceeded to hand me another wad of cash. He said “God didn’t tell me to give you some of the guitar money, He asked me to give all of it,” I was stunned, I didn’t even know what to say. After he left all I could do was give God thanks.
The next day was Sunday. I was late for my meetings, so I went to another. Spirit prompted me to stand up and share my miracle and testify of miracles and that God hears and answers prayers. I spoke so clearly and with power and when I sat down, I had the impression to ask that it touch peoples hearts and that they would want to assist. That was not my intention in sharing, it was purely to share the love and miracles of God, but I know that when we follow promptings, we are blessed. Sure enough, after the meeting, an elderly woman approached me with a note that read: “come by at 3:00, we will help you with your mission.” I praised the Lord and greeted another woman, asking me if I knew if the Dad that donated to us was in need of a guitar, because she had one that she wasn’t using and wanted to see if he could use it! Oh Goodness, another miracle! Names were given and I went on my way feeling so humbled and excited.
When 3:00 came around I made my way to the woman’s house and was greeted warmly and handed a check for $500. In a day I had received over $1000 in donations! My friends, God is so good and He desires to bless us with all that we stand in need of, He hears and answers every prayer, this I can testify. When we give we are blessed and the Lord takes care of us! As you read this today and if you feel inspired, I invite you to assist us by donating today. We are still in need of $3000 for flights so that we can travel to Kenya to do the work. Thank you for your love and support and for taking the time to let me share my story of miracles and faith in Christ. God bless you today as you go about in faith doing good for others.
