Those were my words as I explained to the two rather doubtful young men I prayed with each week that one of the Syzygy cars had died, and we needed a replacement within two weeks or we’d let some mission workers down. “God will provide.”
I tried to sound more confident than I was as I asked them to pray. I was aware this was an opportunity to teach them the value of faith, but I wasn’t sure I had enough. But God, indeed, is faithful, and before the two weeks were up, somebody had donated a car to us and the mission workers were thrilled with it. And God has continued to provide for the Syzygy car ministry, to such an extent that we now have three really good cars and our service has become so popular it is often booked up two years ahead!
And now we are looking to God to provide again. We need another car to meet the growing need of large families, and we have plans to raise £10,000 to be able to buy a 7 seater like our Toyota Previa.
So just as I asked those two young men to join with me in faith for God to provide, I’m now asking you to join us. Will you pray with us for the money for the new car? Will you ask God if your donation might be part of the finances we need? As we have remarked before, God is generous, but he keeps his money in other people’s pockets. So to get this money raised, those people need to be listening to God, and willing to join in his generosity.
We are confident we can raise this money in time to be able to bless another family coming back to the UK this summer. Please help us make their Home Assignment easier by helping us get another car!
