263 – We Receive, We Stand Strong
March 18, 1987
God continues to bless us.
Did we pass some test? Ford some river of faith?
* At the married students’ chapel service, Mike passed the hat for Dan and over $500 came in.
*In our mailbox at Elim we received several money gifts, one of which was for $300. Wally and Debbie came by our house with $100.
*Total bank deposit I will make tomorrow: $1,188.21. All from the last two days.
*Janet and Bob called on his company’s WATS line.
*Possible job: Josie (house mate) saw advertised in the Penny Saver yesterday—a job for a draftsman—in Livonia! Right up the street!
*I was able to pay all the bills. I am overwhelmed to say the least.
*Dan called Pastor Dave so when people arrive at church tonight Dave will already know the news that several ladies (Janet, Jan, Jackie, Erna, Carol) already know…that we will be most likely staying here for the time being.
Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, “I WILL NEVER DESERT YOU, NOR WILL I EVER FORSAKE YOU” Hebrews 13:5
My filling fell out last night.
Car wouldn’t start yesterday evening and the Livonia parts place was closed by then.
When Dan called today, they did not have the part.
I almost did not go to class, but I had determined last night that I must not miss what God has for me under any circumstances. Dan agreed and we stood firm. And prayed.
We decided to borrow Josie’s car. Dan and the boys drove me to Elim. Debbie had been here last night (giving us the check!) and had offered to take the boys to Thursday School (homeschool group), so we took her up on it. Dan stayed at school to study while I went to class and we both went to chapel.
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Ephesians 6:10
