I felt compelled to pray and help an acquaintance with a small financial gift, as she was short on cash for a medical procedure. She was very moved by my prayer and opened up, telling me how she had experienced God in a powerful way when she was younger; yet life had taken her through tough roads and she was now quite broken and hurting. The following day she called to let me know how the procedure went.

She was thankful that the results were better than expected; then she asked me if she could come to church with us. I was so glad she asked before I had a chance to invite her. She came to church with us, bringing along her daughter and her daughter's friend. They all responded to the Gospel and took home a Bible, excited to attend church every Sunday... every time bringing along another friend or family member. They signed up for Alpha and were ready to be baptised. There is great joy, not only in Heaven, when someone finds hope and faith in Jesus. I am amazed at the ripple-effect a simple gesture of love can have in so many people’s lives. We are called to partner with God and as we do our little part in obedience, the Holy Spirit does the rest.
