I was prayer walking with a couple of students from Toccoa Falls College through the apartment complex where our ministry is based. As we prayed for the refugees that live there, we encountered a couple of young men from Sudan working on a car in the middle of the parking lot. They had the front wheel off their P.T. Cruiser and I could see that they didn't have the right tools to do what needed to be done: replace the front wheel bearing. I offered my assistance and the use of my tools for the project. As we worked together, I paused often to ask the Lord for wisdom and strength with these young men. This complicated task ended up needing many trips to AutoZone (even though they originally asked me to take them to Home Depot to get car parts!) and a lot of YouTube videos. Eventually, with some help from a local mechanic (and phone calls to far away mechanics), and we got the car fixed! Working on this project together gave me opportunities to tell them about Jesus and to remind them our success was a direct answer from God to our prayers for wisdom! A friendship was born, and now this Sudanese family has opened their home every Wednesday morning to study the Bible and pray together. Additionally, I have also been paying one of the young men hourly to help me with a building project at home. This is a small way we can help him provide for his girlfriend and the two sweet little girls that they have together. The other day he told me that he decided he should pray before he took his drivers' test. God is at work and we pray that He continues to provide! Please join us in praying for this Sudanese family, that the Lord would bring them all fully into His Kingdom!
