God Story- $605.23

My apologies for not getting this post up on Friday like I anticipated, but here it is now :) 

As I type this story, I think of God's faithfulness and pure goodness.
What an awesome God we serve!

On September 5th I was asked by a certain woman how much
more money I needed to raise for Haiti. 
She told me she was praying for me. 

My answer: exactly $1,200 more.

On September 11th, I gave her a BIG praise report that I only had half that
amount to raise left, only $605.23. 
(I actually even posted about it HERE)

 I thanked her for praying and said
He is providing!

 I was in awe of God to read her response back:

 She said that my trip to Haiti had been heavily pressed
 upon her heart by the Holy Spirit...
and that she was humbled to give the remaining $605.23.


She had been praying to The Lord about how much to give and had 
the answer of $600 and was so overwhelmed, overjoyed, and extremely excited
by God's working that she couldn't resist giving the extra $5.


She said it's all because of Him and for Him!
(AMEN. It sure is!)
On September 12, I wrote this on Facebook:

"Today on the 12th (12 days before everything is due) the additional 1,200 I needed this past week, that dwindled down to $605.23 yesterday is paid 100% and I am fully funded for Haiti!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Don't you love surprises?! God gives the BEST ones!"

This is what I now see on my Managed Missions Account:


He has amazed me again and again through the love of many...
who's hearts have been moved to give. 

How can you ever begin to say thank you? 


I could never do it all on my own.
It takes the whole Church.
The whole Body. 


He provided! 
From Texas to Australia and all over
my state of Michigan- He provided!

He is Faithful!
Thank You God! Thank You! Thank You!
