not-so-random connections

In our now over a year time since we have been support raising and actively seeking people and churches out to partner with us, I have continually been amazed at how God has brought a wide variety of people in our path whom we never would have expected. Today was one of those days when a parent of one of my students randomly connected me with a Haitian pastor near our area. From the parent, I heard a little about what he was doing with helping his community grow better crops in what seemed like a sustainable way. This pastor then called me earlier this evening and while I only understood part of the conversation due to his poor cell connection and Haitian accent, he repeatedly encouraged me personally and told me that he would be praying for me and my family. I have no idea where this relationship will end up, but I certainly was uplifted in our brief talk together.
