God is so AMAZING!!!
A couple of weeks ago, we decided to hold a movie matinee for our friends. We made a list of what we need and put that out into cyberspace via e-mail to our volunteers and Facebook friends. Quite a few volunteers signed up and pledged a few yummy treats.
We sent a request for popcorn to a local theatre and continued to plan the rest of the event. We also had a popcorn popper pledged from a local school one of our volunteers attends.
With a little over a week left, we hadn't heard anything from the theatre, the popcorn popper that was pledged fell off a table and broke, and low in the pledged goodies department, so we came up with a plan B. We would rent a popper from a local party place and run to our local wholesale club and pick up candies, baked goodies, etc..
Five days before the event, we received an e-mail from Cinemagic that said:
"We have never donated our popcorn to any organization. In the past, no non-profit organization has asked for this type of donation to help homeless and under-resourced area residents. They have been completely self-serving. I visited your website and was moved by your churches generosity of spirit. We would be pleased to donate a large bag of popcorn for your event."
At the bottom of her e-mail, it said:
"If you can see the invisible, God will do the impossible." He truly did!
Later that same day, I received a Facebook message from a dear friend/sister in Christ, Heidi, that said:
"I saw your post regarding popcorn. Do you need more? Manchester 99 is happy to donate more popcorn. Also, for future matinees they are willing to donate bottled water."
Wow! That's TWO God Winks!!
This morning, I received a text from a dear friend/sister in Christ, Leia (Leader of the awesome Girl Scout Troop #10205), which said:
"I have four cases of cookies to donate to 'do you know Him'.
God, you are AMAZING!!! THREE God winks within 24 hours!!!
Thank you so much to all who have made this wonderful event happen. We are so excited to see what God is going to do next! Aren't you? We are all so very blessed!
