God Answers Prayer

Heidi; Bob Fu's wife, had secured admission for graduate school at the People's University of Beijing and needed $3, 000 to fund her education. But despite praying everyday for weeks about it, and even sharing the financial need to other men, Bob still could not secure the needed funds. Bob was prepared to give up, but just a day before the deadline for payment, God showed up and answered his prayers.

Following excerpt from 49% into God's Double Agent by Bob Fu

Heidi was living in her province, finishing her school year and studying to pass the graduate entrance exam to the People’s University of Beijing. She realized teaching was too much work for too little pay, so she hoped she could get into a program to study aesthetics and philosophy. In the meantime, I moved into the Communist Party School compound, where I was assigned a dorm with another married man whose wife was also living in another city.

When Heidi passed the exam, she wrote me excitedly. Not only was her future opening up, she could move to Beijing and we could finally live together as man and wife.

“The only problem is that tuition costs 24,000 yuen,” she wrote. At that time, that amount was about three thousand American dollars. It was such an unobtainable amount of money there was no way she’d be able to attend without divine intervention. Thankfully, as Christians, we believed in miracles. Every day for weeks, I prayed for her education. Then, during one of my prayer meetings, I shared my financial need with the other men. As the deadline for the money drew close, I was already mentally composing Heidi’s family a letter explaining why their daughter would not be able to pursue her dreams. But on the day before the deadline, James came up to me and shoved a small bag into my hands.

“What is this?” I asked; peeking into the bag and shutting it immediately once I saw it was full of money.

“Don’t get too excited.” He smiled. “It’s not for you; it’s for Heidi.”

I glanced at my watch, and noticed it was almost time for the financial office of the university to close. I thanked James profusely and practically ran through the campus, holding the bag of money like I’d robbed a bank. When I finally got to the office, I walked in and dumped all of the cash onto the counter.

“This is the tuition for my wife,” I said proudly. The clerk’s jaw dropped.

As she hurriedly put the money into stacks, I realized exactly how generous James had been. It was enough for an entire year of graduate studies.
