God keeps showing up and blessing us and there are times that we are not aware. The Global Challenge for the World Cup in South Africa costs us R1500. This amount we did not have. However, the Lord provided through a once-off job that Kathe did. She provided a workshop for a Rwandan woman who was moving to the US with her husband. Kathe was approached by an American woman who provides cross-cultural training, has lived in South Africa for 25 years and felt like she had been out of the country too long to be relevant about the US culture. The amount Kathe was paid not only covered the cost of the Global Challenge fee but also covered the transfer costs of payment from the US to our bank account here in South Africa.
At first the extra money was nice and we thought about ways we could use it personally. A few days later Kathe told me that she suddenly realized that the amount she was getting was the amount we needed…it was the money that we did not have. We have been reflecting back now to times like these wondering if we had failed to see God working and blessing us. Hmmmm.
