A Family Miracle
A few months ago, Patty's youngest sister & her husband made a decision.
Having lost everything in the pandemic: their restaurant, online store, their personal safety and even for a time, their health, they were going to pursue a refugee claim and move to Canada.
We cannot fill in details on the reason that spurred the refugee claim, but we can now say that there was good reason, but they arrived in Canada with only their clothes and desperate hope.
As it happens, due to Colombian friends living there, they arrived in London, Ontario - my home town.
For two months, they lived in a friends basement, but had a Nov 1st deadline to move & their recently found apartment was not available until Dec 20th & they had no furniture, nothing!
Again, God knows and I had a short trip planned to Ontario because of ministry commitments, one of those led to a conversation with a pastor friend, who with no knowledge of my in-laws, suddenly offered me a house if we needed it!
And from there God opened the doors,
NO, make that floodgates!
From having nothing, and nowhere to live, they went to having a small house rented to them, at a very good price and in 8 days, it was almost fully furnished!
Friends from years past showed up with bedding and a TV, a long lost relative gave them dishes and a toaster. And a dear couple suddenly came up with couch and love seat.
And the very BIG cherry on top? Another ministry friend, who also provided a dresser and bookshelf, introduced us to a charity that provided the entire family Brand New! winter clothes, boots and some much needed clothing!
The testimony is much larger, but it seemed that they only needed to voice a need and that article would show up at the door.
Sometimes, your worst crisis can lead to your greatest miracle!
They still have some odds and end that are needed, but God has been faithful.
Please pray that Cristina and Jordani will soon get their work permits and that their girls will settle in well to their new home and country.
