It was in the month of October 2000. On a Saturday I found that I needed Rs.6500/- urgently on Monday morning to meet our emergency needs. I knew there was no money in the bank nor was I expecting any cheque to be realized. I knew the Lord had to perform a miracle to meet our needs on that Monday morning. All my life, the Lord had never permitted me to put my head in shame not being able to pay a bill in time. So I knew there would be a way out.
That Sunday I did not go to the assembly as it was raining. I cannot stand rain at all. So I was all alone at home when Joyce and children went for worship.
After the worship when Joyce and children came home, they had three other people come along in another car to visit me. A brother had come from Mumbai to the assembly. When he came to Coimbatore, he wanted to meet me. Since he could not meet me at the meeting, he had come home. We had a small chat for about 20 minutes and he had to leave as his lunch was arranged elsewhere.
He then prayed and left out house. On parting he gave me a cover as from him and another from another brother from Mumbai. Then the local brother who brought the visiting brother in his car also passed on a cover to me. After they all left, we had our lunch and we opened the covers to find that there was 6800 rupees in all along with one or two gifts Joyce had received from local friends that day.
We did not know how to thank the Lord for His meticulous care in our lives!
