Stories are often better than mission statements because it's tangible evidence of a life transformed by the power of prayer. Nancy has been coming to my store for a year or two to buy scratch tickets and I would occasionally drop a word of encouragement. I encouraged her to go to Mars Hill which is down the street from here. One day she comes in really upset about her housing situation and I told her that God would make a way. She put up a fight and tried to battle her move with social workers and lawyers and I would always pray with her and encourage her. I knew in faith that God would provide something better if she just trusted him. Today she walked in exclaiming that her new apartment is right on a river and overlooks the most beautiful view. Her son will be more likely to stay out of trouble being so far from this other place and not only that, her cousin and her nephew constantly preach the word of God to her and are now taking her to a church in Dudley! While I am not sure if she has truly given her life to Jesus, God has shown me that HE puts his family everywhere to preach the gospel and LIVE OUT the gospel to bring a healing touch to the lives of families everywhere. I know my God is awesome.
