The Hot Water Bottle by Helen Roseveare

God works in mysterious ways. I received an email from a colleague with this story. While it was quite simple, it exemplifies how the almighty can intervene in human affairs through the kindness of people.

An excerpt:

As often with children's prayers, I was put on the spot. Could I honestly say, "Amen?" I just did not believe that God could do this. Oh, yes, I know that He can do everything: The Bible says so, but there are limits, aren't there? The only way God could answer this particular prayer would be by sending a parcel from the homeland. I had been in Africa for almost four years at that time, and I had never, ever received a parcel from home.

...

Helen Roseveare a doctor missionary from England to Zaire, Africa, told this as it had occurred to her in Africa. She shared it in her testimony on a Wednesday night at Thomas Road Baptist Church.
