Blessed Beyond Measure

Doris Fok and Fok Fook Kong

On July 2017, I attended a conference in Toronto. Towards the end of the conference, I was looking forward to a relaxing time with my husband at a resort one and a half hours away from Toronto. However, on the last day of the Conference,  I was surprised to see him standing  near the water dispenser in the conference room. He shared that we were in a dire situation as our credit card was not activated for overseas use. Hence, we could not rent a car for our holiday.

We scrambled to arrange for a rental car in an alternative way. All the time wondering what to do next. In the midst of the “chaotic” situation, God granted us peace. I “bumped” into a gentleman that I met earlier at the breakfast table. I shared about our problem and he responded with, “Hang on, we may be able to help you.” I was so relieved. Apparently, this gentleman and his wife were Christians and they were willing to offer help to anyone in need.

They immediately put us in their vehicle and drove us to the supermarket for our week’s groceries. They acted as our tourist guides and explained the history and geography of the area were were in. We enjoyed their fellowship and shared about God’s goodness.

After my conference,  I felt exhausted and slept. On waking, I suggested to my husband that we should consider internet banking as our daughter in Singapore had access to our dongle.She  would be able to help us activate our credit card for overseas use. We immediately contacted her and the credit card problem was solved instantly. Renting a car was a non-issue. Our kind Canadian couple drove us to town to fetch the rental car.

We learnt precious lessons from this incident:-

  1. God provides and He does it in His own marvelous ways
  2. He divinely arranged for us to meet this God-fearing couple who served as our driver and tourist guide. What a blessing!
  3. God smoothen out the rough edges.
  4. We learnt to trust Him more…..
  5. God gave us even more – beyond our expectations. The receptionist at the holiday resort, heard about the dire situation.  She upgraded our apartment so that we can have a fully equipped kitchen to cook our meals. Our resort was in a remote area and without a car, it was not possible to drive out to the restaurants for meals. The apartment was a corner unit, on the ground floor. It was very spacious, with  2 bedrooms and a Jacuzzi. The surroundings were quiet, green and wooded.  In addition, the car rental company gave a free upgrade of a bigger and more comfortable car for our use.

We have been blessed beyond measure!
