I remember how excited I was when I got my first bike! I had a tricycle for a very long time, but when I turned five, my parents bought me a proper bike. It had two side wheels, but as I learned to balance the bike, they took the side wheels off and I couldn’t get enough of riding my new bike!
Most probably you can remember when you got your first bike… Or maybe you were one of the unlucky one’s that never got a bike because your parents could not afford it.
Most parents in Danville can’t afford to buy their children bikes, but when God extends His hand of grace, it can even mean that a child that never imagined having his own bike, are now riding in the streets of Danville!
On Friday we had our Christmas party for 97 children. More than half of these children’s first wish was a bike.
Initially it sounded like an impossible task to get the funding for 97 Christmas gifts. But the Word of God says:
37 For nothing is impossible with God.”
It was not impossible for God to realize 97 children’s Christmas wishes. He provided the finances to buy each child what they desired for Christmas.
It was amazing to hand over these gifts to the children telling them: “God is the One who provided for your gift!”
