My pastor friend, Dr. Jack Bailey, has been quoted as saying that “when God shows up, He shows out!”  I experienced that yesterday morning! 

If we have 250 participants for the upcoming pastors’ conference, we would need $15,000 in scholarships to fully cover the entire cost i.e. lodging, food, conference materials.  As of yesterday morning, we had received approximately $7,000 in scholarship money.  I was very grateful for every cent that had been given.  However, God wasn’t finished! 

I received a phone call from a very good supporter of GRACE Ministries who told me of a friend who wanted to make a donation to the mission work in Guatemala and left the designation of the donation to the said caller.  This donor does not know me, Friendship Baptist, or GRACE Ministries and has never been to Guatemala.   

So, the check was designated to the pastors’ conference scholarships.  Awesome!  By the way, the check was for $5,000!  Absolutely amazing!  The thing that amazes me is not the amount of the check but the fact that God used someone who doesn’t even know GRACE Ministries to meet a need!  His ways are past finding out!

I then received another call yesterday afternoon from an out of state supporter of GRACE Ministries and was told that he would be sponsoring two pastors with scholarships.  Wow!

Folks, I had asked God where the money was going to come from for this year’s conference and He told me to simply trust Him!  He has faithfully provided by leading folks to give $10, $30, $60, $120, et cetera and now this larger gift.  He has used members of the Friendship family and some wonderful friends of GRACE Ministries to provide!  Thank you for giving to the Lord! 

We serve an awesome God!  By the way, when God shows up, He shows out!
