It’s amazing to behold all that God has done this past week!! Thank you for your prayers!
The revival meeting was absolutely wonderful. God sweetly worked among His people. There were several visitors, and many were stirred to live “all out” for Christ — with even a few surrendering or re-dedicating their lives to Christ.
God has literally paid for EVERYTHING through our accident (a head-on collision with a deer on a four lane highway)…. We have not asked anyone for money or financial assistance — only God, and it’s all God!!
We have full coverage with our insurance (Praise the Lord) with only a $1,000 deductible. Incredibly, a retired pastor friend of ours in Florida was led of the Lord to give our family $500. This covered half of the deducible!
The agent who is handling our insurance claim for us is a born-again Christian based out of Michigan. (I found this out when I began witnessing to her over the phone, and I openly shared with her the details of our evangelistic ministry.) She called me back about 30 minutes later on her personal cell and said, “Mr. Garraway, I asked my manager if it was okay to contact you like, and he said it would be fine. When you were speaking to me, it gave me chills. I could sense that anointing is upon your ministry. God burdened my heart to personally give you folks $500 to help with your deductible….” WOW!! Incredible!!
Furthermore, God directed us to a van rental company about 30 minutes away from where our van is getting repaired, and the owners are born-again Christians. They gave us a 20% discount because we were in full-time ministry (I didn’t ask — they just offered it!) We were able to rent a 12 passenger van for three weeks for our travels. (We were able to leave a lot of our book table supplies in the storage shed at Canal Fulton Baptist Church where we just conducted the revival meeting in Ohio.)
I was shocked when I received a phone call later that afternoon from dear friends in a church in Manchester TN…. The church deacons and pastor are burdened to help with our expenses, and their sacrificially giving will cover the rental cost!! PRAISE GOD!!
There have been other gestures of kindness along the way that has shown us God’s mercy throughout this entire journey. We know that He is in control, and we give Him the complete glory for all that He has done!
He has lead our vehicle to be repaired at a collision center in Massillon OH (that works with our insurance). It seems to be a very nice place. If all goes well, it is projected to be finished by Friday, June 24th. Please pray to this end! Please pray that everything is fixed perfectly and for God’s hand to continue to be upon this entire process. Thank you for your love and faithful, fervent intercession!!
We are looking forward to our revival Sunday here at Temple Baptist Church in Muncie, Indiana…. We arrived safely last night. Praying for power and the outpouring of the Holy Ghost upon our three services today at 10am, 11am, and 6pm!
