XXII. Miracles of Giving
by Bill Hunt

The weather radiated strong heat waves when we arrived in August at God's new assignment for us in South Florida. Our adobe style townhouse contained no furniture. As a family we bunked on the floor. Our five kids slept on mattresses, except for one set of bunk beds. Mary and I purchased two bright red foam mats and slept on these for about eight weeks. We used a simple table and chairs for eating but no living room furniture.

One Sunday I was standing outside the auditorium of a small church we were attending when I heard a young lady's most beautiful, melodious voice from inside singing to the Lord. I listened amazed at the quality of her singing.

"Who is that?" I finally asked.

She turned out to be my own daughter, eighth grader Monica. Not only was her voice beautiful, but little by little, I learned all my children were singers for the Lord. Each received the gift from their mother. Normally a shower singer, I could only sing well when the anointing of the Holy Spirit was actually upon me.

Within a few days, tiny baby Meg became sick and ran a fever. We had no medicine. A tall Christian young man from the church helping us to move in, also unemployed, pulled out his wallet and gave his last eight dollars to help us buy medicine for the baby. He told us he was seeding for a new job. We joined hands and prayed with him.

The very next day he returned excited to tell us. A nearby golf course hired him as a grounds keeper, working for $80 a day, a tenfold return on his gift.

God suddenly blessed me, as well. Faith Chapel in Boca Raton invited me to preach as interim pastor while the congregation waited for the arrival of their new pastor. A very kindly board member and his wife, George and Joann, visited our apartment and noticed the lack of furniture.

The next day, he made a few phone calls, and our house was suddenly equipped with two couches, end tables, a coffee table, lamps, beds, and a needed dresser. I will admit, sleeping on the red floor mats had grown a little hard. I was so thankful for this new blessing.

As the Holy Spirit anointed our preaching, people came forward for ministry without an altar call being announced, crying tears under the conviction of the Holy Spirit. The church board members helped to minister in prayer to the congregation. We worked together as a brotherly team.

Quite soon, Zion Lutheran Elementary and High School in Deerfield Beach granted a position in public relations and fund raising. The school proved most generous to my family. Mary worked as a substitute teacher and played piano for the morning student chapels. The elementary principal also used Mary to teach piano students after school.

I had the privilege of working evenings to assist Dr. Bob Grunow and his son, Tom, the school administrator, in raising funds for the new high school, which had just been constructed. Dr. Grunow formerly served as the development officer for the well-known, national television program, The Lutheran Hour.

From nothing, God established our way, doing all things well.

v27 Then Peter answered and said to him, “See, we have left all and followed You. Therefore what shall we have?”
v28 So Jesus said to them, “ Assuredly I say to you, that in the regeneration, when the Son of Man sits on the throne of His glory, you who have followed Me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 29 And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My name's sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and inherit eternal life” (Matt. 19:27-29 NKJ).
