"The impression of God is true. When you are riding in a car, you will always see homeless people. I’m not really sure how they came to live like that, but first it goes through my mind that they must be lazy or doing drugs, etc. So if they live like that, they deserve to live like that and I would always come up with a way of avoiding them. Sometimes, they would ask for money so I would give them a few dollars, but sometimes my heart was not even open to do that. Sometimes, I didn’t have it so I could not help them or I didn’t have enough time to give them any help because the traffic light changed.
From time to time, I felt obligated or frustrated to help them but it was part of life. It’s always been part of life. But a few days ago, I thought, “what if one person can change from that life?” Jesus said “One spirit is much more important than all the things in the world”. Those thoughts came to my mind, then my heart opened. Suddenly, my outlook changed and I knew that God had changed my heart.
So I prayed repeatedly and thought of all the words I needed to share, such as “God is Love, God loves You, God created you in His image, You are the only one in the whole world like you”… so many things went through my head with different meanings and I kept praying about what to write…
One Customer came in and gave me a lump sum of money to pay for an order for my store. It was all dollar bills. As soon as I saw the money, I started to realize I needed to take action. Then, I heard the voice of God telling me, “You need to start now”. I had never experienced something like this and suddenly I knew what I needed to write on the envelopes. I took out $2, found the crispest ones and I took out a label and put #1 and started creating envelopes to give to people who need help, a blessing or a reminder that God loves them.
As time goes along, I pray that this number will increase to 100, 1000, 10,000, 100,000 or even 1,000,000….it could be. I pray that through these envelopes, some people will open their hearts and want to know Jesus and give them a chance to meet God. I know Jesus will work through this and I will obey with happiness to serve the Lord. The impression of God is true."
After reading this amazing testimony, there was a short note at the bottom with an envelope inside. The envelope was marked #22 and inside were two perfect $1 bills and included in the letter was a check for $1000 to help the homeless. The angel donor said that God has changed her heart in June and she blessed us with this letter at the end of July, right after our black tie gala and dinner show. Since this time, the angel donor has also offered to pay for Sonja to attend Glory Camp in August, a revival that helps people of all ages grow closer to the Lord.
The note said: “Don’t think you are alone. God spared 7000 for Elijah and He has put us in each in the right place to do our duty. There are many soldiers out there to fight against evil. Hwaiting! I love you.” #life4homeless
