The Lord sure was smiling our way when he opened the door for us to participate at the Christmas Village in Birmingham this weekend. Click HERE for more details on that story. It threw a lot of unexpected work our way these last few days. It has been a bit of a three ring circus at times. At one point we were actually working three separate events simultaneously!
Was it worth it? Oh yeah! After all the paper beads were back in their boxes and the nativities were neatly packed away over $6,500 had been raised for the ministry! Over $5,000 of that income came from our five days of sales at the BJCC. November is off to a good start, y'all!
In addition to the funds raised, we met a lot of fantastic folks who encouraged us. Who knows what other doors will be opened thanks to this fabulous opportunity.
This simple little miracle enforces in my weak heart what I have known to be true all along...God knows our needs, manages the details and can make red seas part when we least expect it.
As we sing in Uganda, "My God is able. My God is able. We shall sing hallelujah, AMEN!"
