If We Are Willing, He IS Able!

"Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, LORD,
have never forsaken those who seek you."
Psalm 9:10


What another amazing day for Bread FOR Life
where the Lord just ONCE AGAIN
demonstrated His great mercy and love for this little ministry.

I tell you what, it is jaw dropping!

On Sunday February 19th Bread FOR Life raised a total of


It is just astounding.

God’s love for His children can not be stopped.
He will provide if we are faithful to act.

(If we are willing, He IS able!)

A Faithful
God is He.

It was a great blessing to be able to stand before the congregation again and give an update on the ministry thus far. I also was thrilled and ecstatic to share with them the letter that I received from Sanyu pouring out their heart of gratitude and thankfulness for all that God has provided through the Body of Christ in Petaluma so far.
(To read the ‘Thank You’ letter from Sanyu Babies’ Home, click here.)

The letter was extremely powerful and the Spirit of God
was touching many hearts (certainly mine) as it was read.

Bread FOR Life is a miracle-ministry.
I do not say that with a boastful heart.
I am simply blown away and in complete
AWE at the work of the Lord.
(Should I expect anything less?)

When we can bake a few loaves of bread and bring in
$1340 dollars for the orphaned and abandoned children
of Africa you know the Lord is


All Glory to His name!

* This is super cool *

The bread “sales” alone brought in $340.
Then we received a generous check for $500.00 (Thank you Mr. W!)


We received another check for $500...


want to hear the most amazing part of this whole story and WHY I am really brought to my knees in tears with a heart of amazement?

Here is why.

I have always told my husband exactly this,
“I believe that when the time is right, the Lord will place it on somebody’s heart to give to the ministry specifically for the ingredients we need. I believe they will write us a check and say, ‘Here take this and go buy your ingredients.”

I told Chris this from the very first day
and I even repeated that to him the
NIGHT BEFORE February 19th.

This is what I KNOW the Lord confided in me
from the very beginning.
He promised me that He would provide for this ministry if we would just take a few first-steps of faith.

Well, get a load of this:
After church, a dear, dear sister in the Lord looked at me and with her sweet little index finger motioned for me to come near her. As I sat down on the chair behind her, she leaned into me and whispered, “Im going to write you a check for $500.00, the question for you, is do you want it to go towards the orphanage or do you want it for your ingredients?”

I about fell out of my chair!


I almost fell out of my body!

This $500 can now produce 500 Loaves of Bread!!!

These 500 Loaves could easily raise over $5,000!!!

As you could imagine, $5,000 goes a L.O.N.G. way in Uganda!!!!


Truly God has called the church in America
to be the Bread Basket to the world!!!!

This is HIS ministry.
These are HIS children!
This is all HIS money!

He does not need us, however, He wants to use us.
I know that lives are being changed both here in Petaluma and there in Uganda through this little fundraiser. I see it almost daily.

He knows what He is doing.
He is caring for His children through a few loaves of bread
and a few faithful hearts.

Praise God.

All Glory to His name, Forever and Always!

I will have a grand total for you sometime next week. I believe we are now close to $5,000 for the orphans since December 11, 2011!!!


"He provides food for those who fear him;
he remembers his covenant forever."
Psalms 111:5
