|A silly picture from last year at a Milano coffee shop. (I’m wearing the hat.)|
Last Thursday was the deadline, the critical day when all of the funds had to be collected, in hand, and on their way to the bank. Only one week before, our team was falling far behind, collectively in the red by more than six thousand dollars.
The team was praying, but even they were unaware of another circumstance that threatened to add an additional two thousand dollars to the overall team goal. If the university in Milan would let us use their free classrooms for the English Clubs, we would be ok. If not…well, let’s just say that renting hotel conference rooms would be pricey.
This alarming news had come Tuesday. To avoid a team-wide freak out, hubby and I were praying quietly between ourselves.
On Thursday, I went to work as usual and sat there praying between customers, waiting for news.
By the end of the afternoon, ALL the money had come in–to the penny!
AND the university had agreed to let us use their classrooms! Not only did this reduce the price of the trip, the convenience of the location will also make it easier for more students to attend and meet our team. We are thrilled to see how God will use this close location to connect students with the church in Milan.
So if you prayed,
or did both,
We will need more prayer than ever as we go, so please don’t stop! I know from last year that I can do absolutely nothing without His power.
