When God is in control anything can happen! Prayers continue to be answered every day as we walk on this journey with the Mission of Hope. In efforts to try to bring greater awareness of this mission focus, several emails have been sent out to several friends soliciting donations, prayers, and support. There are two special answers to prayer that I would love to share. I have a girlfriend in California – a dear friend since Kindergarten. We have kept in communication all these years and when time allows, have even seen each other in person a few times. When I came home the other day, there was a box on my doorstep and it was from her – Kelly! Items that were listed in my email that we needed and an envelope with some money to purchase what we needed. Wow! what a true friend and true blessing. Thank you Kelly!
Another blessing occurred this morning. My boss is also on this email list and he walked in this morning with a surprise. He mentioned that he tithes faithfully at church, and knew that we needed to tithe on his income tax refund, so he handed me a handsome check for $350 to the Mission of Hope to spend on what we need. Thank you David! You too are another answer to prayer. As the donations continue, we are sure to be able to provide the basic necessities for our adopted 600 students in the Philippines!
