God sends money just in time.
The Lord worked amazing miracles to get Redemption Radio back on the air in Honduras. Just when we thought we had received all the donations we would receive, from all the people who might give, and just when all the momentum seemed to halt—just when we didn’t see what else to do or where else to turn, we still had only half the money for the transmitter—just then I received an email. It said: “I will write a check for $25,000.00 to Spanish Herald.” My mind raced. The Lord had done it! He had worked a miracle for us!
Of course, we know He works miracles all the time. But why would He work miracles for little people like us? Well, He does work miracles for little people—for those who are doing a small work for Him in a hidden corner of our obscure planet. He does care for each one of us. We can only say, “Praise His name!” I think part of our Creator’s greatness is His condescendence and tender care for the most insignificant of us.
Even after the transmitter had been paid for, problems with customs prevented us from bringing it home for several months. Yet we saw the Lord’s hand helping us in this situation, also. For some unexplained reason, we didn’t have to pay the huge amount we expected to get the transmitter out of storage. Even the customs agent expressed his amazement that the fee was so low. Our Lord works in wonderful ways!
At last, Redemption Radio went on the air again. The engineer had to make two trips to get everything going, but with his help, the first rebroadcasting of our program came through strong and clear. But later, something started to happen. The volume decreased and the signal wasn’t clear anymore. As we talked back and forth with the engineer, we pinpointed the audio processor as the source of the trouble. The engineer told us something we could do to repair it, but it proved to be only a temporary fix. We needed a good audio processor to replace the old one.
The engineer sent us his recommendation: a $2,000 machine. I hadn’t expected it to be so expensive, so I asked for a quotation from another store. Their cheapest option was $4,000. That made the original offer seem like a great deal! I checked the money we had available for the purchase. We had just sold an electrical transformer we didn’t need anymore, but even so, the account barely reached $1,000. I tried to negotiate a better price, but the seller could only come down to $1,813. We were still hundreds of dollars short.
Hoping against hope, I sent an email to the accountant for the Spanish Herald. “By any chance have you received any special donations for the radio station?” He said “no.” Meanwhile, I messaged the seller and asked if they could hold the offer for us in case the Lord sent the money. That evening, I received another email from the accountant. He said: “I just went to the post office and there was a check from Mission Projects International for $900.” Oh, praise our Lord again! A few days later the equipment was ready for pickup.
Yes, we have something to tell about what the Lord has done for us. The Lord works in so many ways, and we are so thankful. Thank you all for being part of these miracles. May He find us all faithful to the end!
