MUSTARD SEED JERSEY PRAYER UPDATE 5th OCTOBER 2015
Answer to prayer
In the last update I asked for your prayers that the transfer of aid would go smoothly in St Malo on Sept 7th . Here’s how prayer was answered:
Around midday on the 7th I had a phone call from St Malo from the Jersey volunteers Peter and Glen asking for urgent prayer that the aid would fit in – as the aid was being transferred securely and was all declared to Customs it was a very very serious potential problem. (Usually a larger trailer is sent but on this occasion it was one the same size). As soon as I got the phone call, I contacted a few people to ask for urgent prayer that the Lord who multiplied 5 loaves and 2 fish to feed 5000 would work it out for us.
Later Peter explained that as he looked at the amount of aid left to fit in and the amount of space left he knew it was humanly speaking impossible. He has loaded a number of trailers and so when he told me that there was not enough space I have absolutely no doubt that this was indeed the case. They continued to load and to Peter’s amazement the remaining available space in the trailer remained the same until it was all fitted in, including some very awkwardly shaped items!
I personally have no doubt that the Lord worked a miracle for us, how I have no idea, but I believe He did in answer to our prayer for help.
So please be encouraged to pray, knowing “Prayer changes things”.
