And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
Romans 8:28

Sometimes it's hard to fully grasp the reality of this scripture, especially in the midst of difficult and trying circumstances.

About a year ago we were having problems with our washing machine so Paula ended up taking a load of washing to a local launderette, which in itself was a bit of a hassle.

Anyway, long story short... someone reversed into her car outside the launderette which was a bit of a downer on top of all that was going on at the time. Thankfully the guy who did the damage was really good about it and everything was sorted out quite quickly and pain free. In the midst of all the to-ings & fro-ings of sorting stuff out he asked a few questions about our work and was really keen on The Gathering's Homework Club and said his company would like to make a donation once the church is tax compliant.

Fast forward and today The Gathering's Homework Club now has twelve very nice Android tablets running Android 11 (our old ones are on Android Ice Cream Sandwich!) and are so much better for running the maths app. The old tablets are going to continue to serve The Gathering as they will be used for the literacy part of the Homework Club once we have the space to grow the ourteach through acquiring the building.

Sometimes a situation can appear really negative and onerous, but God can turn anything in to an opportunity for His glory.
