Last Friday Augustin Das came to my office downhearted and feeling ill. I had set up the appointment for a lunch and talk with him that day, not knowing how he was feeling. Augustin had been to the emergency room earlier in the week with sky high blood pressure and he had developed a shuffle when he walked. The doctors gave him a beta blocker and sent him home to recover. They could not explain the shuffle. Augustin bought a phone card for me to use to call India after we had eaten lunch. He gave me instructions on who to notify in case he passed away. Augustin thought he was literally finishing up his business in this world. However, he asked for me to call on an elder to anoint him with oil and pray for his healing. We called an elder, assembled staff to be in prayer with us and the anointing proceeded. The prayer time finished and Augustin and the elder walked out together. I noticed Augustin's shuffle was gone as he walked out. Augustin's blood pressure and shuffle have been taken care of by God! Praise Him! We were starting to worry about candy for Trunk or Treat with only 900 pounds and a week left to gather the candy. Again, God stepped in and candy came from heaven. Russ Ortloff asked a CVS manager if they had any candy to donate. They were about to get rid of 500 pounds of candy off of their shelves because it was coming close to the "sell by" date. We are on schedule to give blessings to our neighborhood once more. Thank you Lord for the blessings you touch us with.
