If you read this post, then you know I believe God does the miraculous. I was up early (and all night) with my kiddos and when everyone was finally asleep I was wide awake. All I could think about is how much God loves you, how much he wants to move in your life.
Result: I want to pray for your miracle.
Is there is something in your life that seems impossible? Please let me pray.
Do you have a sweet friend who is struggling with an addiction?
Is someone you love suffering from sickness?
Do you want Jesus to show up in your living room. (I think I would pee myself, but how legit would that be…the Jesus part, not the me needing a change of clothes part.)
Whatever it is, I just want to give God the opportunity to do the miraculous.
Maybe we don’t know each other. No problem.
Maybe you don’t believe in miracles. Also no problem.
Maybe you don’t believe in a good God. Again, no problem.
As promised, here’s another testimony I’ve been meaning to share. If you need a boost of faith, I hope you find it encouraging.
Faustino, one of our student leaders, is from a different province, but is here in Maputo on a scholarship. Because of a lack of space in the dorms, he was having to rent a small room at the back of someone’s home. (He's the one kneeling in the picture below.)
Mozambique is in an economic crisis right now, and although Faustino student teaches three classes at the university, they stopped paying him. (The government has stopped paying almost everyone.)
Faustino was in desperate need of money so he could have a place to sleep and food to eat.
This wasn’t just an issue of finishing school; it was an issue of being in serious danger of having to live on the street. He, Matt, and a couple of our other guy leaders spent some time praying and asked God to provide a solution. Specifically, a housing solution.
THE NEXT DAY Faustino was approved to live in dorm housing, which provides a room and meals. It’s three fourths of the way through the semester and there are TONS of students on a waiting list for campus housing. There is no reason Faustino was chosen—usually the students have to pay bribes to get these spots—but God provided a miracle!!!
To add some icing to an already sweet cake (I vote carrot cake!):
The dorm he got into is a dorm we have spent two years praying for. We no longer need to find a person of peace so we can start a Bible study. God sent one of our own and Faustino has already started a group.
