God Testimony!

Hello friends,

I just wanted to give a quick testimony on God's wonderful blessings! Today I woke up at 6am to begin my day. I felt very energized and was looking forward to another beautiful day that the Lord has made, trust me, that is big in itself because I am NOT a morning person :-)! Well our youth group had a car wash fundraiser scheduled for this afternoon to raise money for a mission trip we are taking in August. The Devil has just thrown stumbling block after stumbling block in the way of our club, and we have struggled with raising money, but we all know who is in control! We decided to add a detail service to our normal car wash and ask some of our neighboring churches if we could put some fliers out for their constituents to see. Every church was incredibly friendly and accommodating (thank you Jesus!) to our request.

Well our car wash began, very slowly, but soon we began having car after car after car show up, and before we knew it, we had run over the time we had scheduled to have the car wash end. Everyone loved the work ethic shown and really appreciated the great job the children did in the detailing and washing of their car. As we were tallying up the money, we noticed that the majority of people had given much more than they actually owed for their cars. What a blessing, we exceeded our expectations! We give all the honor and praise to him who knows our name, sees our needs and answers our calls.

Our group still has about $40k to raise for this trip, if you all would be so kind, will you please lift our youth group up in your prayers? Thank you and God Bless!
