MONEY ON THE ROCKS
Our beginnings… We begin our mission blog with a compilation of stories of our early years as a mission organization. These stories molded us into who we are now as a mission organization. All stories were God focused and actual experiences of our pioneering missionaries on the field. They were firsthand narratives describing how each Filipino missionaries witnessed the mighty works of our living God in full display. They saw and tasted the miracles of God in response to their prayers which provided for their needs. They were supernaturally brought to situations that were beyond comprehension and given amazing opportunities to minister to the lost and needy people of each nation. The stories will best explain how our poor missionaries were able to sustain their stay in the mission field for long periods of time and see their ministries flourish throughout the years that passed. All their testimonies converge to a single truth - God is actively at work in the lives of people who responds in complete faith to His call.
They saw the Mighty hand of God and they could not contain in their hearts the joy it has brought to their lives, In this blog site, you’ll read the exciting God Sighting stories shared from the hearts of missionaries who truly encountered our living God in the mission field.
GOD SIGHTING STORY # 18 (CLASSICS)
MONEY ON THE ROCKS
Posted by firstname.lastname@example.org on 08/24/2018 (Story happened Year 2006)
A group of young Filipino ITeams missionaries serving in Indonesia heard about the flying-money miracle that happened to the missionaries in China. Thinking that the same miracle story can happen again by just asking the Lord, they gave it a shot! They requested a provision from the Lord that will cover their food expenses… and a digital camera! “Lord, can you do it again? Can you send us bills flying towards us?” They asked with so much hope!
They prayed and waited for a couple of hours, but they didn’t receive any response from the Lord. They started to get impatient saying, “Lord, we know you don’t play favorites. You made money float in the air in China for our missionaries there. You could easily do the same for us here.” But God’s thoughts are different than men. Instead of showing them the same story, he orchestrated a different worth-capturing moment! Out of frustration from a very long and tiring unanswered prayer time, one missionary walked away and tripped over a rock. The rock moved a bit and under it they saw the hidden bills! Yes, hidden bills!!! That place was hit by a tsunami a few years back and was completely devastated so most of the properties were taken away by the water current. But despite the bad event, the Lord managed to keep the bills hidden under the rock the whole time to set His surprise for His missionaries! How can no one notice those bills hidden for so long??!! Oh, how great and glorious it is to experience how the Lord create a situation for a revelation!
Being so confident that it was the Lord’s hand that gave it to them, they surrounded the rock and took the money. Then, they were able to buy enough food for themselves. But not just that! They were able to buy a digital camera too! They must have thought they did the right thing to believe that the Lord can do it again … but in a more remarkable way!!
The Lord will never run short of miracles for those who are willing to trust and believe!
