A cup of water in Jesus' Name

You may have heard of the tie-up on Interstate 40 in Northern Arizona Sunday morning. A fatality accident occurred at 5:30 a.m. just a few miles east of our campus, tying up traffic for miles -- and for many hours. Looking from the campus across to the interstate, one could see a solid line of "parked" trucks -- from horizon to horizon.

Never ones to miss an opportunity to reach out to those in need, our campus pastor and two of our dorm parents, along with the junior high students, distributed water and snacks "in Jesus' Name" to many of the stranded motorists -- some had been sitting there for hours with nothing to eat or drink! As Jesus said in Matthew 10:42, "If anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones . . . he will certainly not lose his reward."

I have a feeling many of those stranded travelers will always remember the Navajo "angels" who came to their rescue along Interstate 40 in Northern Arizona. It was wonderful the way God used this situation to show our "angels" how to put their faith into action.
