In 2000 our church building was burned to the ground by an arsonist. In the aftermath of that tragedy, we received a number of financial gifts from individuals and congregations. Some gifts were large and some small but all were inspiring and helpful.
One of the gifts stands out in my mind. A letter arrived at our office that simply said, "I wish this could be more, but my husband died this month, so this is it. But my prayers are with you, and may the Lord inspire your congregation to rebuild. Sincerely, Mrs. F. J. Hansen". The letter was accompanied by a check for $2.50!
In the midst of her grief, that woman put in all she had for strangers. I still have that letter!
