Life Stories

A Little Goes a Long Way

When life’s circumstances overwhelm us and seem impossible to overcome it can be easy to worry about how we will have everything we need. Check out how God used Abigail’s small group to provide for someone in need.

For our small group service project, we decided to pick a restaurant and pray that God would show us someone to bless. We collected money from the group to give to someone with a card that had scriptures and encouragement in.  

We went as a group to a local restaurant for brunch and had a waitress named Tamika. When we finished eating, we told her that we had a gift for her. We explained that God loves her and sees her needs.  

Tamika started crying and said we had no idea how much she needed that encouragement. She explained to us that she is a single mom with a daughter in college, and that she was going in for a kidney transplant. She shared about how challenging life has been because she was furloughed from her job in February and put on dialysis in March. 

We were heartbroken by her story and prayed with her right there at the table. When we left we felt God had more to do so we collected money to have food delivered to her in bulk. We ended up raising over $800.

We are all just blown away by God’s goodness and faithfulness. It’s always crazy to see the impact that obedience to God has on the lives of others.
