We continued our road trip from Maryland, driving through Pennyslvania and then crossing into Canada to Niagara Falls. We were looking forward to spending time with family in Ontario and also getting a bit of rest for the remainder of the winter. We searched for many days online to find a rental house we could use while in Canada. At the end of our exhaustion having found no house, the Lord spoke to us clearly to go to Niagara Falls. That was not in our plans at all. He then pointed us to acandleinthewindow.com Niagara Falls hosts. He asked us to contact them which we were hesitant. We just wanted to be on our own and not in someone’s house at that time. Never the less, we obeyed. That family was only receiving guests until Jan. 30th as the mama of the home would be giving birth soon. We contacted them and they took time to pray about it as we would be arriving on Jan. 29th. The Lord spoke to them, and they obeyed. So off, we drove to their home which is 8 minutes drive from the famous Niagara Falls. We were well taken care of and refreshed. We right away started to pray that the purpose of God in bringing us there would be fulfilled.
We would later witness to their daughter and see her give her life to Christ. She had been a constant source of strife in the home but glory be to God, there was an immediate turn around. We also shared in a prayer meeting held at the house where Pitana preached on “God’s expectation of us.” Daily the Lord worked in us and in the household we were staying with. I don’t think, we can write about all that the Lord did.
Though we had entered that home strangers, we left as friends. Before leaving, our hostess remarked that with 8 extra people in her house, her home had been more peaceful than when it was just her family of 4! Isn’t God good!
She also asked me, “why did you pick to come to us?” I replied, “the Lord clearly commanded us to come.” She asked again, “what would have happened if we had said no?” I answered her, “God would have still provided for us in another way because He is faithful.” And she said, “but my family would have missed out on God’s blessings.”
“But the end of all things is at hand; be ye therefore sober and watch unto prayer and above all things, have fervent charity among yourselves;for charity shall cover the multitude of sins. Use hospitality to one another without grudging.” 1 Peter 4:7-9
We had arrived in the cold part of Canada. There was snow such as our children nor our nanny, had never seen. We were in need of warm clothing. Word went out and a dear lady showed up with piles of Jackets, gloves, hats, snow pants… What a blessing! Our God never fails to provide.
