Today we received one of the most beautiful letters of encouragement I have ever read, from a precious 80-year old sister in Christ. Enclosed was this magazine page from 2002, the year we were appointed to Chile. All around the edges of the page are handwritten the dates that she prayed specifically for us over the course of many years.
The rest of the story is this ... In November, we visited a supporting church in CT and this woman who lives in NC just "happened" to be there visiting her daughter. We had never met or communicated before, but she said, "I know you!" She could picture in her mind's eye our photo in the bottom right-hand corner of this page because of praying over us so much. It is a blessing we will never forget!
If you have ever wondered if your prayers make a difference ... THEY DO.
