A Lesson in Faith

This story will be told in full at a later point. For now, get ready to be rocked. Our relief team in Ica found yet another community that needed help. They are already helping over 18,000 people. But it seemed that this community was one that the relief team needed to be in. So they went in to check it out. They found a group of very hungry people. There was no food to be had.

The missionaries told the people to get ready, that they would be back. When they came back, the pots in the common kitchen were washed; the people were lined up in an orderly line; there was firewood under the pot; and the lady in charge was holding a match in her hand. They were ready. Everyone present was moved to tears. It was a divine appointment.

How many times are we ready when we have asked God to meet our needs? How many times do we have the pot ready for the food and the match in hand?

Oh, to have such a faith every single day!

OH! What a lesson for us all to be ready for each day to be feed by HIM. You ALL are in our prayers as we can only pray and read about the work.

Yes, it is a true lesson in faith for all of us.

Continue to pray for those men and women who have sacrificed their regular ministries to be on site in Ica. We are barely scratching the surface there.

Kevin, I am bawling like an overgrown northern male (baby). If it is okay with you, I would like to steal this for my blog, giving you credit, of course. Thanks for sharing the lesson on faith that the people of Ica shared with you.

God is good.

I have stopped back and read this a few different times. You really need to consider submitting it to Readers digest or something of the sort. This is an amazing story.

You are much too kind to me, Frank!
