Dear Evangel Temple Church,

One year ago this week, me and a friend were evacuated from Haines City, Florida (near Orlando) when Hurricane Irma came to town. We made our way to Meridian to stay in a hotel there. We were sitting in a drive thru fast food restaurant line when a gentleman pulled up beside us and said, "Are you evacuated here from Florida?" We said, "yes, we are." He said, "We would like to give you this" and handed us a greeting card. Inside the card was $25 cash. We were like "THANK YOU SO MUCH!!".

We were so blown away by this angel of the moment that graced us with such a gift. I cried on the spot. The money did buy our lunch that day and we were so grateful. But the act itself was so generous and thoughtful and the words on the card so hopeful, I have been impacted immeasurably since that day. The card said; "Faith Strength Patience Hope". The inside said; "Keeping you close in prayer and heart". Written below the passage was: "Jesus Loves You!" and signed; "The Evangel Temple Church Hwy 145 South".

The card has sat on my desk for the last year and I see it everyday. We have had a challenging time living in central Florida and on some of my worse days, that card has given me exactly what it says: "Faith Strength Patience & Hope". It has reminded me continually to stay focused, have the faith to see things through, the strength to deal with it all, the patience that God will help us in his time and the hope of a better day. Thankfully, we are moving to new home in Jacksonville, next Tuesday and the future is very bright and we have big plans to accomplish there!

So, I realized recently I had never thanked you for such a wonderful gift. The money was a definite help at the time, but the act of generosity and the message given will stay with me forever. I will frame the card for hanging in my new home and I will never forget the ANGEL that impacted my life in such a profound way. I am eternally grateful.

God Bless & Thank you!
