It is no secret that God works in mysterious ways. Everything was created through God and for God. His plan is wonderfully complex and has a way of bringing people together as we see in this story. — Story Guru
The Yard Sale
Contributed by: Patti Reichlin
A while ago, I was having a yard sale and had over 1,200 Christian books for sale. As I was packing all my stuff that I had for sale, a couple of men stopped by. They asked about the books and I told them they were both fiction and non-fiction Christian books. They said they would take them all and asked how much for the entire lot. All 1,200. I needed to know the story behind why they would want all of them.
It turned out that they wanted to start a library in Africa in an effort to help the people learn English and they needed books. So I asked where in Africa the library would be and to my surprise, it would be in the same location as a missionary we help sponsor. I ran into the house and got the missionary’s card and showed it to the men. They knew the missionary and his wife because the library was going right next door to the missionary office. Definitely God’s planning! I gave them all the books to help start the library.
It’s a small world after all! God is amazing! — Story Guru
