Many of you know that I love volunteering at Compassion events. I love being able to answer questions people have, and help them start their journey of sponsoring a child.
But at many of these events, I have had the opportunity to be part of watching God work in some pretty amazing ways!
This past weekend, I spotted little Abreham from Ethiopia...
I usually try to find a child who has a birthday the same day as someone in my family, and little Abreham's was as close as I could find. His birthday is on December 7th, which is right between my daughter's birthday and mine.
So I sent his picture to my daughter so she could be praying that someone would come along and sponsor Abreham.
Well then, on Sunday afternoon, a family came through and saw little Abreham. One of the daughter's said, "Look mom, he has the same birthday as me!" The daughter took down Abreham's packet as the family looked around at other children waiting to be sponsored.
That is when I heard the mom say her daughter's name. I thought I heard what she said, but I asked her again what her daughter's name is...her daughter's name is Kelsey.
My daughter's name is Kelsey!
What are the chances that a little girl with the same name as my own daughter, whose birthday is the same day as Abreham's, who is the little boy my daughter has been praying for, and that little girl would come through the Compassion Experience event that day??
This one family decided to sponsor five (yes, FIVE!) children that day!
God is an awesome God!! He knew this would happen and He allowed me to be a part of it.
What ways have you been able to watch God work lately?
