Testimony: Part 1 – My Airport Angel

For those who have been following for awhile, you might remember me mentioning some crazy girl who approached me at the airport last year and asked to pray for me! Well, she has become one of my dearest friends. I got to journey with her during her pregnancyΒ and she has been a solid friend and prayer warrior to us while we have waited for our breakthrough.

Today, I’m excited to share our video testimony. I hope our story encourages someone that when you obey the Spirit’s prompting (Melanie) so much fruit will come out of it. All because Melanie approached me at the airport – a friendship has been born, Colby and I have become members at a new church, and our whole relationship with the Lord and infertility journey have changed for the better. I’m so thankful to Jesus for the divine appointment He blessed us with that day in Kansas City and I am excitedΒ to share part 1 of our story with you. We are waiting expectantly for part 2!

*Please excuse my complete awkwardness of being on camera.

    Oh, Caroline! I am sitting here in tears! This is SO precious…so amazing how GOD works in and through our lives! Wow…what a blessing. This is SUCH a fingerprint of God…such a reminder that He is indeed watching your pain and all you have been through. I am so excited to see the next chapter and how God will use this friendship in BOTH of your lives. I have a feeling this is to be mutually beneficial, and both of you will continue to draw strength and courage from each other. God is SO good. So grateful you shared this. πŸ™‚

    Caroline, I was so excited to watch this… to “meet” you on video. Probably 30 seconds in and I was bawling.

    You have such a beautiful, amazing spirit Caroline and I’m so glad God sent you an airport angel.

    As for Melanie… you go girl! How awesome to heed the Lord’s prompting.

    I can’t wait for part II as well.

    Blessings to both of you. This video just made my day.

    I am a ball of tears. I don’t know if it’s the music, or the testimony, or just because I love you so much…but my face is drenched right now. I love that you met your airport angel that way, and I felt the same exact way about you praying for me that day at a random Starbucks off of I-35 in Austin. It’s so special when someone offers to do that for a friend, and it’s just so touching. So happy you’ve had this awesome friendship blossom from an airport encounter. And Melanie, if you’re reading, YOU are pretty amazing too!

    I was 100% tearing up watching this Caroline! What an amazing story. I would probably have thought the same thing if someone walked up to me and asked to pray over me, but now after seeing this and hearing your testimony, I’d welcome it with open arms!
    And you are not at all awkward on camera. πŸ™‚

    I loved watching that video and hearing about God’s grace in your life via a new friend. Some of my favorite relationships have begun in strange places too! You just never know WHERE you’re going to meet someone who will end up meaning so much to you.

    Thanks for linking up!

    This video brings tears to my eyes. God is so amazing in how He works and shows up in our lives through other people. Melanie’s boldness definitely encourages me to step out in my faith & to not be afraid to share my faith with others. Thanks so much for sharing this, Caroline!
