A Call from Trinidad and Tobago

This story by Karen Matambo, a Compassion Boston Bible Worker.

I received a call from someone in Trinidad and Tobago a few weeks ago.

“Karen, I received your number from an old school friend of yours. I have an aunt in Malden, and I'm looking for a Bible worker and a medical missionary to visit her.”

After the initial shock I finally responded, “Sure! Um . . . can you share more information with me?”

Before long I spoke with her aunt and met with her. She was very sweet and also expressed her interest in both spiritual and medical support. We scheduled a Bible study time for the following week.

I look forward to seeing what God has in store for this caller’s her aunt, but wow! I’m floored by the way God works, bringing so many entities together to reach this aunt. I hadn’t seen my old school friend in four years! He lives in Jamaica and somehow knew this lady in Trinidad and Tobago. Right when she needed to contact someone, I just happened to be in Boston! Only God can work out such a plan. I can’t help but think of this as added confirmation that God planned for me to be in Boston right on time—His perfect time.

Dear friends, when we follow God’s leading, we will never fail. Go forth in faith!
