A call for help and it worked!

Friday, we were very frustrated and overwhelmed with all that needed to be done and wondering if we were going to make it by May 20th! We had been claiming the promise that what is impossible with man is possible with God. As we prayed we felt like we needed send out an appeal for help and prayer from our friends who live locally. We have had so many people ask what they could do to help or how to pray so we sent out an email detailing some tangible ways they could be involved. We also asked them to pray for these needs. We listed things that we needed to sell and give away; we included specific ways they could help and also mentioned that we were at 84% of our support commitments. We sent it out at noon and then left for a few hours. When we came back and checked our email, our monthly commitments were up to 88%! We have been overwhelmed by the many ways people have responded! Most of the things listed have been spoken for now or are at the "pending stage". We found a trailer, have someone that looked at our house, and have people interested in our cars and our cat. All of this is a result of God's people knowing how to pray for us. And God answered! He is GOOD!
