"The Marketplace Momentum team joined us in prayer a couple of months ago at the Mid Valley Literacy Center in Keizer. We are a non profit business that provides tutoring for students taking classes in ESL, GED, US Citizenship, etc. The team asked God to pour out his blessing and provision on our efforts as we struggle to secure stable funding for this vital ministry.
God has continually met our needs and exceeded our expectations, but last week he really went above and beyond to bless us. In the mail we received a check for $10,000! The money is a grant from a local foundation (a grant we didn't even apply for) and the funds aren't restricted in any way. The local foundation knows of our work and felt led to help.
We know that this is a direct answer to our prayers and want to thank the Marketplace Momentum team for joining us in those prayers!
