You might remember what I wrote on May 20th before leaving on my trip to Sweden.
Let me tell you a situation what worries a Sunday school teacher in Mexico. You might remember the story about the surprise they sent me for my birthday. Read it here.
The teachers decided to continue supporting my ministry. At the same time they want to teach children about missions. This teacher, who sent the package last time, crossed over the border to the USA and got a money order to send another offering. She was going to send 180 dollars but it was misunderstood and the money order was made out to be 118. Pronounce these two numbers and you can understand that with accents getting in the way 180 can easily be understood as 118.
What is the worry? The money order is lost! Every day I’ve been checking the mail. It should have been here days ago. The Lord knows where it is. We need to pray for it to find its way to where it belongs.
I left for Sweden after writing the above. I asked God to let the check find its way to me. Then I forgot all about it.
Upon returning home after almost six weeks I went to the Post Office to retrieve my mail. I was given a very small pile. I couldn’t believe it was all the mail.
After a couple of days I asked my mail carrier if she could look around because I was missing several pieces of correspondence that I get every month. Yesterday she put a note in my mail box that she couldn’t find anything more for me. I was intrigued.
Today, at noon, my doorbell rang. Low and behold! There was a to me unknown mail carrier with a load of mail, asking for forgiveness because they had misplaced my mail. I had ordered some fun books to I was glad to receive that and lots more.
Guess what? I had forgotten about the lost check! But not our Heavenly Father. Stuck in between magazines and junk mail was a tiny envelope. It looked to insignificant I almost didn’t open it.
Let this encourage you. It sure has encouraged me. I have a big problem on my hands. My Air Condition unit is shot. We know those things don’t last forever but it sure hits the pocket hard when it needs to be replaced. Right now I’m sitting here dripping in sweat. This to shall pass, as they say!
I know my Father cares as much about my AC as the “lost” check. I love the peace of mind we have when we put things in His hands. It’s going to be interesting to see how this problem will be solved. The check came right on time. I needed it today as a reminder of my Father’s care.
He cares for you, too!
