For more than a year and a half, Eileen* and her husband had wanted to update their home with a new paint job and brand new living room décor. This was a desire of their heart yet they could not find the extra finances to enable them to accomplish this. They prayed and asked God, knowing He is faithful.
When they heard from their pastor about house churches, they sensed the Lord speaking to them to start one. Even though their home wasn’t in the shape they wished, they chose to step out in faith and obedience.
Eileen shares, “I had wanted to repaint our home and redecorate the living room for more than a year and a half. Once my husband and I decided to obey God and start a house church, God provided the laborers and the finances to do it all in only four days! We even received new chairs to provide more room for the people in our house church!”
God also provides plenty of food and supplies every time they meet for their house church. Eileen had wanted a buffet food warmer with two sides so that she could keep food warm. She was gifted with a three side warmer that was beyond her expectations.
“All I’ve ever wanted is for people to feel comfortable in our home,” Eileen says. “I have families, young adults, and couples tell us that they feel the presence of God in our home. That means everything to me!”
