God is faithful!

On Sunday the church prayed for my son, Nate, since it was going to be his last Sunday with us before moving to NC. We are in a bit of trepidation over this, since he hasn't got a place to stay or a job. It was a sending prayer, something we do as a matter of course when our members pull up stakes, and I know it blessed Nate big time.

Now here's the neat thing. Our church, like many others I'm sure, took up a collection for hurricane relief. I noticed Nate looking into his wallet with, shall we say, "concern," since after all he needs every red cent at this point. But the basket came around and he quickly pulled out a twenty and tossed it in. Moments later, the fellow sitting in front of us turned around and said, "Nate, I know what it's like to relocate. Maybe this will come in handy," and he handed Nate, you guessed it, a twenty dollar bill. Soon after this, several other people in the church walked up to him and handed him money, amounting to $120.

All I have to say is, God is faithful!
