A beard, a belly, and a Bible

I was… scratch that… Santa was invited over to People Helping People this afternoon to discuss collaborating together on “Stomp Out Hunger 2016.”

December third is the event date, but back to the story.

As Bill Harris showed me around their ministry site he shared how God has blessed them with a building, connections, opportunities, and on and on he went as he shared all the Lord is doing there in Baraboo and the surrounding areas. As the tour continued we made our way to the mechanical room which happens to currently be in need of an upright washer and dryer.

“The Lord has blessed us with all of this,” he says as he motions around the room. “And God continues to provide, all we need to do is trust Him and pray” Bill said in faith as he ushered me out of the mechanical room and into the service bays of their new ministry center. “Pray, Pray, Pray.” Bill continued as we walked further from the mechanical closet.

“Bill,” I interrupted.

“Yes, Santa?”

“Bill, we had better get back into that room,” I said in a surprisingly authoritative voice. “If God is asking you to pray then we better bow our heads together NOW and ask God.”

We bowed our heads, shared a prayer of faith for an upright washer and dryer. As I walked back to my sleigh I thanked God for Bill, his ministry, and the moment of fellowship neither Bill or Santa will soon forget.
