Don’t cut off our water!

So here’s an interesting story.  Every month we receive our water bill in our mail box.  This bill must be paid or else the water supply will be cut off until all is paid in full.  Well, there’s an option to have it automatically debited from your bank account so you don’t have to worry about it every month.  For some reason, I assumed I had already set this up when we traveled to the United States last year, but, in reality, I hadn’t.

When we arrived home from our trip, we were soon visited by two workers from the local water company informing us that they were at our house to cut off our water supply!!  I responded, “Wait wait, haven’t I been faithfully paying our bill online”?  When they responded with a big negatory, I quickly checked, realized my error, paid my bill online, and printed the receipt.  When I showed them all was paid and apologized for my mistake, they looked relieved and happily informed us that we could continue with our water as normal.

We took advantage of this special situation, as usual, and told them about church and the cell group that meets at our home.  We invited them but tried not to get our hopes up.  But sure enough, one of the workers showed up to cell group with his wife!!  We were very pleasantly surprised.  A couple weeks later, the other worker shows up!!  And a few weeks later his wife decides she too wants to follow Jesus and now is also coming.  Praise God!!

These two couples are among our most faithful disciples and are on fire for Jesus.  They are now beginning to help us lead some other cell groups and disciple other new believers!!  Isn’t God fantastically amazing?!!  YEEHAAWW!!

This is the life

The two workers from the water company!
