Answered Prayer

I was talking on the phone to one of the missionaries at Amani Baby Cottage. We prayed together and then I mentioned how seriously Jaden and Kellen take prayer. I told her that they pray everynight for the babies in Uganda. I also told her that for a couple months, Kellen had been specifically praying that the children would not be afraid of the dark. (Kellen knew that the baby cottage was without power regularly.) He has a fear of the dark and knew how real that fear is. From a tender heart, Kellen prayed that God would protect the kids, take away their fear, and give them each a flashlight.
The missionary on the other end of the phone gasped and said, "Tell Kellen that God has answered his prayer!" One of the neighbors of Amani donated generators and lights to the baby cottage. There were just enough lights left over that they could be strung across the toddler house. There is no more darkness!
God is so good! He cares about every little detail.
