A Piggy Bank for God!

Joshua has a job feeding his neighbors cat, and he is learning responsibility.

There are a lot of very special people in our lives and I would like to tell you about Joshua. The really cool part that Joshua has in this ministry is his sensitivity to prayer. His parents tell me that often they will be doing routine things during the day when out of the blue Joshua will suddenly say: “We need to pray for Howie and Debbie, right now”. Then he prays.

So back to Joshua’s piggy bank
Piggy Bank for God

Joshua has a job feeding the neighbors cat which is teaching him responsibility, and he is learning to tithe as well. He had this idea to start a Piggy Bank for God. His grandmother brought him a cute yellow pig that has no opening to take the money out. Perfect! Diligently he put in his pennies, nickles, dimes and quarters each time he got paid, and the bank began to fill up.

Joshua and DebbieLast night I was at a Bible Study with his mom when Josh came running up so excited to show me his piggy bank, telling me the story of how it’s his “Piggy Bank for God”. Then he hands it to me and says, “Here, this is for you and Howie because you’re missionaries”.

I can’t quite describe to you the feeling I got, but it was like an overwhelming sense of responsibility having been given this treasure. Immediately I prayed and said “Lord, what would you have this money used for?” Immediately I remembered something from last summer.

Ten Commandments CoinAs we travel we love to have things to give to children. It helps them remember what they have heard and most children love little treasures. Last year we found The Ten Commandments Coin sold by Living Waters, a ministry of Ray Comfort. This is perfect to share with the children we meet while ministering throughout these United States.

So Young Joshua will be sharing an important part of the Word of God with hundreds of children across America this summer
becausehe was faithful to fill a Piggy Bank for God.

Thank you Josh!
