Thanks to the Latter-day Convert on Instagram for allowing us to share her story.
Most people don’t know how I struggle financially. There have been a lot of ups and a lot of downs. Last night, I got a medical bill that was in pre-collections that I just couldn’t pay for. I was hoping that my roommates wouldn’t remember it was my turn to buy toilet paper and I was really mad at myself for not budgeting better.
I prayed and had the faith that God would provide for me. I’ve made it through every trial, and I knew He would guide me through this one.
I was chatting with friends in the living room when the door bell rang. My roommate heard someone run down the stairs. I opened the door to find a pale green envelope addressed to “Emily Jane.”
I opened it and found five dollar bills. It took me a second to realize they were HUNDRED DOLLAR bills. I KNOW that this is a miracle. Someone rang my doorbell and anonymously left $500 for me!
But even more than that, this is a beautiful example of Christlike love and sacrifice. I could have never asked any of my friends to sacrifice this much money, especially the many college friends that live nearby me.
This is a beautiful example of someone who has listened to the people that they serve and/or listened to the promptings of the Holy Ghost. I am entirely humbled that someone would minister and care for me this way, and that they would know my exact needs in this exact moment. This is truly divine intervention.
I’ve made it through every trial, and I knew He would guide me through this one.
To the angel from heaven who left me this envelope, God bless you. I hope it’s okay that I post this and share my testimony with others. Your running and escape skills are impeccable.
I am so thankful, I do not have enough words to describe my gratitude. I hope that I can make you and my Heavenly Father proud, and that I can return even half of this favor someday.
