My mother was a brave woman. In her late twenties she obeyed God’s call to leave Sweden together with Dad (and me) and be a missionary in southern Chile. My testimony story is about what happened in our first home in Chile, when rats had her so worried she could not sleep at night.
The big house where we rented a couple of rooms was made of wood, with wooden boards inside and out. At night the rats ran up and down inside the walls and the ceiling. Mom was very worried about me and my sister, afraid that rats might bite us.
One day, when Mom was sitting writing a letter to my grandmother, a huge rat was looking through a hole in the wall!
When the rat problem was almost unbearable, Mom decided to ask God for help. One night she woke up Dad and asked him to help her pray. It was midnight and he was sleepy. “If you have the faith for it, you pray,” he said, and went back to sleep. Mom applied her faith, and tearfully cried out to God, asking for his help. When she finished praying there was complete silence. God had immediately done away with the rats in answer to her prayer! They never bothered us again!
Where did they go? After that night, the neighbors complained that they had twice as many rats! God relocated the rats because a young missionary had faith in her great and powerful God who answers prayer.

I have also added several new stories under Any-time stories.
Thanks for sharing these stories with the children in your life!
