Our Associate Pastor Tom, knew we were leaving soon for our move to
, and we would probably be selling
our almost new Oldsmobile Station wagon.
Tom drove an old rattle trap of a car, but he was happy it still ran.
One day he playfully placed his hands on the hood of our car and said, “I claim this car for my youth ministry."
We joked back at him and said, “Please take your hands off our car.”
That evening my husband and I had a talk and later spoke with Tom. We told him if he was serious, we would offer him the car for about half of what it was worth Blue Book.
Tom was elated and took the information to his bank and they told him they would be happy to finance the entire amount as the car was worth that and more. In fact they added some to the loan so he was able to pay a large amount on his student loan.
This worked out good for us too, as we were happy about giving him a good deal for the Lords work.
In life if there is something you need (or desire) from God, it is good to place a name on it. Tell God all about it and if it is a serious need, request others to pray along with you.
Don’t just think in your mind, but verbally say with your mouth what you require.
We planned to use the payment Tom gave us toward a Ford Van so we could pack it full when we moved to
Oklahoma to attend . Rhema Bible
We needed a Ford Van with only front seats.
My husband spoke in Faith to me and said, “Hazel we will pay cash for the Van, you just wait and see.”
I did not know where the money was going to come from.
Selling our car brought a good part of it and then - - unexpectedly we received a large refund check from our Work-man’s Compensation Insurance company because we had no accidents. We were almost there, when another surprise refund check from a previous year arrived that covered the rest of the van.
We must have been a sight when we finally left for
with our Pick Up Truck full, our Ford van full, and our two daughters driving
their own cars full. We had with us; two dogs
a cat a bird and angels watching over us. Oklahoma
The next year 76/77 was an exciting time, and God performed many miracles along the way.
God desires to bless you and prosper you so that you can bless others. Ask in faith believing and be brave to speak out and say what you are needing God to do for you.
