Beauty from Ashes

A number of weeks ago, an elderly woman here, lost her husband. Forty days later, her apartment burned.  John and Julie Wright, as part of LAMb received word about this double tragedy and stepped into help.

We posted about this siutation and our friends from the BridgeBuilders group at Countryside Nazarene Church also stepped and helped to finance the repairs and furniture.  THANK YOU!

John captured it all coming together today....PLEASE visit his blog for a tremendous story....

A Powerful Touch

A number of days ago, as David was walking off campus toward home, a beautiful young student approached him.  She simply said to him, "Mr. Schooler, I pray for you every day."  David was so taken aback that he didn't ask her name.

Yesterday, this student approached him and handed him a card. It read...

This morning, I, too, had the privilege of meeting this young lady. I was able to tell her how very powerful  her words were to David.  She mentioned that she prayed for both of us. Our mystery is how she knew to do that.

Both of us spend a lot of time at the university and have grown to love these students. It is one of the most meaningful assignments we feel God has entrusted to us. 

We had hoped that we would be able to speak into their lives.

Little did we know, they would speak so dramatically into ours.

Our journey continues....
