God's Name Be Praised

Wednesday was an amazing day.  God wants His hungry children fed.  And He proclaimed that loudly and clearly.  As I fasted and prayed all day, it was really awesome to sit and watch God work.

A huge thank you to Trey for organizing this event every year.  And, a huge thank you to everyone that fasted and prayed and listened to God proclaim, "I still my hungry children fed," and then opened your wallets.

I was touched.  Over and over again.  All day.  From the $5.00 gifts all the way to the largest gift.  Children that had saved their money and then gave it to dump day.  Some of those gifts were rather large for children.  What a sacrifice.  The FCA in little Ada, Oklahoma that met at the flagpole to pray for dump day and then raised $1000.00.  The monthly donors to Casa de Esperanza and Honduras Hope.  And, then you dug a little deeper and gave again.  Our high school friends that gave.  I could go on and on.  And on.  Every single donation moved me to tears. 

And a great big thank you to the people that work behind the scenes.  Their work is just beginning as money starts coming in.  It takes everyone to make something like this happen.  But most of all, it takes a great big God.  And, I am glad He is my God.
