The Samaritan's Purse rebuild team were guests in our church building following Hurricane Sandy. Each week new guests arrived to help rebuild our church building and the neighbors homes who also suffered damage and loss.
One Monday night one of the guests named Andy requested prayer for his daughter-in-law. He was concerned because she was having difficulty with her pregnancy and the possibility of loosing the baby. A group of Full Gospel Church members prayed with him for this daughter-in-law and this unborn child for safety, protection and perfect delivery. We asked him to stay in touch to share the testimony of God's faithfulness.
A year later, Andy returned to Island Park to help with Samaritan's Purse rebuild team once more. He was excited to share that his daughter-in-law's pregnancy went fine and then he pulled out his iPhone to show the beautiful picture of the three-month-old named Emma who was born perfect.
The extra testimony was for Andy himself. He asked us also to pray for his interrupted sleep at night. He mentioned his struggle most nights with getting a full night of sleep. So we also prayed for Andy that he would experience rest and peace.
Andy excitedly shared that he was, "Sleeping Great!" and added, "Glory To God, thank you for praying and being bold and listening to the Lord".
Praise God for answering our prayers.
