So, we have been praying at City of Refuge for God to raise up churches to help take care of the food part of our living here...and yesterday, he totally answered our prayers!
We were invited to a church to come and be a part of their Thanksgiving services. I loved being a part of their worship, hearing the testimonies of the people there...it was such a joyful service. And then, they had John get up and speak. It was a powerful time. And near the end, the brought in bags and bags of rice, boxes of indomie, corn dough and cassava dough, yam, water, sugar, soap, milk, milo and more!! It was awesome! It seriously brought tears to my eyes to see the ways that this small church came together to provide for our kids.
When we got a chance to stand up and thank the congregation, our words were so simple. All I could say was that each week we gather together in a worship service, but this...the way they gave so freely of what they had...this is being the hands and feet of Christ, this is what it means to be the Church.
I'm praying we'll continue to see this kind of favor over City of Refuge as God works through churches here to provide for the needs of "the least of these".
