Misunderstanding, A Pot Of Peas, And A Neighbor - Prayer Walk Testimonies

I thought I had told everyone just to bring a sack lunch and we would eat and go out after church to walk our individual neighborhoods. As we were gathering after church, a young mother in our church approached me, "I thought we were having pot luck, so I made a pot of peas." My wife, beside me, said, "Yeah, I was unclear about that, too."  I felt bad that this mom had gone to all that trouble, apologized, and we had to go on our way.  Guess what God did with my mistake, a misunderstanding, and that pot of peas. Well, you don't have to guess. Here's the prayer walk testimony about it all.

Would you believe we were able to share lunch with one of our neighbors since we had such a big ol' pot of peas! One neighbor we've been praying for pulled in the same time we did. We stopped to talk to him and he said he'd been to church. I asked if we could pray for him and he couldn't think of any needs he had but was open to prayer so we just praised God for His provision and love. The last time we'd prayed with this neighbor he was in tears over a friend's health condition. His friend is doing fine now. What a blessing. God is so good.

So, the peas didn't go to waste. God was praised. Healing had occurred. The body of Christ was strengthened. You never know what's going to happen when you step out your front door on mission with God.
