Remarkable Incidences

Every once in a while we go through experiences that boggle our minds and all we can do is shake our heads in disbelief, wonder, and awe, all rolled up into one. What Eng and I experienced the last week in August falls in this category. Tuesday of that week, I came home and discovered my wallet missing. I figured I might have left it in school where I taught but I couldn't be sure. Immediately however, I started to pray incessantly. I also got our sons praying right away. The reason? It takes half an hour to renew a driver's license in Toronto. In Thailand? It would take a trip to the Canadian Consulate, the police station to report it lost, the doctor's for a medical certificate, and the transportation office for the license itself. It's definitely not a pleasant nor short task to do and that's only taking care of one of the items in my wallet! Eng was on his way here from Canada when during his stopover in Bangkok, he suddenly realised that he no longer had his passport. Panic stricken, he retraced his steps to the shop where he was at to find out if he left it there. He didn't. Like me, his prayers started. Thank you Father, that you can do the impossible, that you answer prayers, that nothing is too difficult for you.
To continue the story, the next day, I got to school, checked my mail box slot, and there sat my wallet! To this day, I don't know how it got there. I don't know who placed it there, I just happen to know who made it happen. Eng's story ended with the shop owner bringing him to the place where he could find out about lost items. A call was placed to the third floor and sure enough, his passport was there waiting for him to pick it up. Details? Who knows? Only God, it's all God. Thank you, Lord!
