Many Building Hope volunteers extend themselves well beyond the work they do with our ministries. So I wasn’t surprised when our ESL site coordinator told me she would soon be leading a mission trip to Thailand. She asked if I would be a back-up contact for our Tuesday night class, in case any questions arose while she was gone. We really didn’t expect any.
Of course, the week turned out to have all sorts of surprises and unexpected issues! Yet God showered his grace upon our conversations.
My favorite part occurred as our team dealt with the fact that our regular driver would be out of town, and none of our four subs were available either. Each teacher went above and beyond…creating a “relay” of cars back and forth between our students’ apartments complexes and our class site at Mt. Calvary, multiple times. And God definitely rewarded us!!! He sent us the largest number of students we’d seen all year!!! It was a blessing for us all.
