As I already mentioned, saxophones are out of my league. I know nothing about them except that I like the sound that they make; but I had no doubt that God had the solution for Caleb, knowing how much he wants to learn to play a sax so he can participate in the church music program. I've never met Ron, or Don, or Rick, or Carol, or Bob, but God knows them and within 4 short days of the original appeal I sent out, He arranged the connections with each, and willing couriers so that Caleb's sax could be placed in Rick's hands (a very qualified service technician who gladly offered to do the servicing necessary to get it ready for Caleb for just the cost of parts). Rick had already offered some very useful advice in what to look for, but before I could get started looking, Pastor Ron, contacted us offering an instrument Carol and Bob had left with him when they moved out of state; and then, I received an email from friends in Casa Grande, AZ, Jeff and Sherry, offering their daughter's sax. I forwarded it to Rick, and he replied, "Please tell Jeff & Sherry I would be happy to look at their saxophone, as well.” He, looked them both over, consulted with some tech friends around the country, and they all agreed that the Antiqua Winds will be just what Caleb needs to get started in his music marathon, and a generous, unexpected gift will cover the cost of parts with money left over to apply toward Caleb’s music lessons.

Isn't it amazing to watch how God uses the "family" to get His plan accomplished ...and to be a part of it all?!

Caleb was here yesterday. We've been praying together that God will work out all the details, and this has been no exception in God's big overall plan for building a little boy's (and his teacher's!) faith in His provision. I can hardly wait to hear his first musical offering to our Father in the Tepic church!

I'm convinced that it would have been humanly impossible for us to have orchestrated this ensemble for the task, but the Divine Director already had the score in His hand. Why are we surprised?...and I’m 1000 miles south of the border and still have not met most of the rest of the players in the band! Thanks again to all who offered to join the ranks of the "fine instruments" in the hands of the Maestro!
