SANDWICH FROM HEAVEN

Updated: Feb 11, 2022

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 # 19 (CLASSICS)


SANDWICH FROM HEAVEN

Posted by itphilip@itphilippines.org on 08/06/2018



This is a story of our missionary who encountered God’s great provision at the airport before her flight. She was so hungry but has no money to even buy a snack to calm her stomach. She calculated the remaining hours left before her departure and realized that the waiting time is too long for her to endure the hunger pains. As she placed her things at the x-ray inspection system and passed by the machine, her mind was still thinking of how she could get food. After having walked away from the X-ray area, one of the guys who operate the system went to her and she was told that she left her bag. She knows for sure that it wasn’t her meal bag, but she was probably left confused when that person insisted and told her that she was the only one who passed by when that bag was found. Not knowing what’s inside, she opened it and saw it contains a sandwich, mineral water and soda can which is what she needed at that very moment. She went back to speak to the same guy again, however, she couldn’t find him anymore as if he was never there at all.


Hebrews 13:2 says that some of us have encountered God’s ministering angels without knowing it. God’s work behind the scenes is mostly beyond words for us to even explain and too amazing for our limited minds to understand. But surely, God’s goodness and love will follow us all the days of our lives! Praise the Lord for this incident is another reminder that how He works in our lives is, yet another proof planned to display and proclaim God’s glory!
