“A friend wrote me, knowing I had left Thailand in heartbreaking circumstances and told me that I should attend the Thrive retreat. I wrote her back telling her that I had coveted attending a Thrive conference for 20 years. I registered and had 12 days to pay the $125 registration fee and everything extra we had went to food for our family. I said ‘okay Lord, I am going to lay this out as a fleece for you and you’re going to have to provide money in a way that is very direct because the extra we have goes toward food/clothing.’ The deadline came and went and I grieved that day because the money didn’t come.
Three days later I got an email that there was an extension on the deadline. I promptly reminded the Lord that there was an extension and He still had time. The next day I was making a Thai meal and I ran upstairs to change my contacts because my eyes were burning. I glanced into my bedroom I saw an envelope that had “meet you in Colorado, Love God” typed on the front and $125 cash inside. I stood in my room and cried. I went downstairs and asked my husband and six sons about the envelope but nobody had a clue where it came from.” Cathy Wimble, Retreat Attendee
