Why Worry About Backpacks?

In the Spring we found a deal on the cutest backpacks for our younger kids at Casita Adonai.  The administrators wanted to use them as an incentive for parents to register their kids early for the 2013 school year.  Our teams delivered the backpacks this summer and put them in storage.  While they were sorting through them I wondered, "How are we going to get backpacks for the older kids?  We only have enough for the little ones."

Thirty minutes later I received a text from my friend Linda Nance who attends Mt. Zion Wesleyan Church in Thomasville, NC.  It read:

"We have a team going to Guatemala in a few weeks and we wanted to do something to help Casita Adonai.  We were thinking of bringing backpacks.  Could you use those?"

Their team leader, Dr. Ed Reedy of Thomasville Pediatrics, found a deal on backpacks and Mt. Zion was able to purchase and deliver the exact amount we needed!  Their original plan had them serving kids in another part of Guatemala, but they decided to help Casita Adonai in this God-ordained way. What a blessing!

Thank you Mt. Zion for giving so much to the kids of Guatemala!  God used you to remind us that He cares about the details and often provides before we even ask!
