A Minister has just answered the prayer of a Georgia teen, who needed help in paying for college as her family had been going through a lot.
Mykehia Curry wrote a letter to God, asking him to help her find a way to get a comforter and refrigerator she needed for college. She would be the first in her family to attend college when she headed to Albany State University. Curry’s mom is on disability, so money has been tight. So last week Saturday, just days before she was scheduled to leave for school, she asked God for help.
“I wrote a note that said ‘God please help me get the rest of my stuff for college. Then I said ‘Amen, I love you God’ and I wrote my name and number” Curry told CNN. She tied the note to three helium balloons leftover from her grandmother’s birthday celebration and let them go.
“When I was writing the note, I was just trying to reach out to God. I didn’t know where it would land. I thought that someone would pick it up and call me and tell me they got it or just throw it in the trash” she said.
For her prayer to be answered, the balloons flew about 15 miles northeast and carried the note to Gray, Georgia, which was where where Jerome Jones, a Baptist minister, found it. Jones also works for Georgia Power and spotted the balloons on Monday while he was out on a job.
“I saw something shiny and floating, so I walked over there and I got it and it was balloons with a note tied to it. They floated all night and they landed right in my hands, I mean, practically” he said.
Jones who called Curry and offered to buy what she needed, added that “When praises go up, blessings come down, and that was one of these cases.”
“He said they would love to help me out.I was so shocked and surprised” Curry told CNN.
