Touched by Angels

The Bible tells us to entertain strangers because they may be angels.  We had a close encounter with two special visitors this week.  Abby and Kayley sold some of their possessions and homemade brownies.  When their parents asked them what they would like to do with all of the money they made, the girls said they wanted to give it to “poor people.”  It was just before closing on Wednesday evening, when they arrived with their plastic bags full of well organized currency.  We were so impressed with their generosity and even more amazed after we calculated it––a large gift to the Mission!  We’re sad to see this special family leave Santa Barbara, but we’re so grateful for their parting gift.
