My husband and I came to attend Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry in August, 2012, with minimal finances and $1,000 of medical debt. Even though we found jobs, our paychecks didn’t cover our expenses. We prayed and felt God tell us that if we paid our tithe and our bills, we could put what was left over onto the credit card. Additionally, I felt God say that the debt would be paid off at the one-year anniversary of the surgery.
In early December 2012, we got a call from my grandparents, who asked if we had any credit card debt. We replied that we owed $6,000 on our credit cards. They then informed us that they wanted to pay off both credit cards.
A week later, my grandparents called again asking about any medical debt. They decided to include a check for $1,100, meaning the debt would be paid off by the anniversary date. After that phone call, we couldn’t help but dance all around the house, thanking God for His goodness. We had planned on spending $300 on each other for Christmas, but after God fulfilled the promise of our debt being paid off, we decided it would not be wise.
I got the letter from my grandparents in the mail on December 21, 2012. In it were the two checks to pay off the credit cards and the medical debt. But in addition was a surprise check for $300! My grandparents had included, with no prompting from us, an additional “Christmas gift money” check.
