I promise – this has nothing to do withsome exiled Ugandan prince needing your b@nk digitsso he can hook you up.
This past Friday, I got a call from a good Thai friend named Moo. Moo, or Marty, (his English nickname), was my Thai tutor 11 years ago, then my housemate, then my co-worker with Campus Crusade, and now a senior staff, a church planter, a devoted husband, and father of two boys.
Here’s what Marty said to me – “Matt, you and I both know I don’t have any money, but I truly feel God leading me to take responsibility for a big Christmas project for my entire province. I want to do something that has never been done before in our province. Less than 1/10th of 1 percent here know much of anything about Christ & I want to start a Christmas tradition where everyone canlearn what Christmas really means. I’m going to work with other churches, but cover the expenses myself, and take responsibility for it all – and even though I don’t have any money, I know God will provide. So, I have stepped out in faith, incurred the expenses already of $1,200, (or a couple of months pay for him), promised to pay later, and I’m trusting God. I know He will take care of everything and I will trust Him. Will you pray with me?”
I told him I would. But, you know what happened before I prayed or did anything else? I got a very unexpected & very incredible email the next day…
