This afternoon, I’ll be in Greyfriars Primary School taking their assembly. This time I’m going to tell a George Mueller story which has a lot to do with bread, milk and people!
George Mueller lived in the 1800s and when he became a Christian, was called by God to look after orphans and children in poverty. He lived in Bristol and he and his wife started by taking in 30 girls. Mueller had decided that he would never ask for money, but would pray and trust God. Within 30 years he had built 5 orphanages, which cared for 1,722 children. He also started 117 schools and saw 120,000 children educated.
One day, the housemother of the orphanages came to Mueller in his study. “The children are ready for school but there is no food for them to eat.”
George told her to get all 300 of them sat at tables ready to eat. He came in and thanked God for the food they were about to eat.
Within minutes, a baker knocked on the door, “Mr Mueller, last night I couldn’t sleep, somehow I knew that you would need bread this morning, so I gotup and baked three batches for you.”
So after there was another knock at the door. it was the milkman. His cart had broken down in front of the orphanage. “the milk will go off by the time the wheel is fixed. Would you like some free milk?” He brought in ten cans, enough to feed the 300 children!
Mueller worked hard, prayed lots and always trusted God to provide!
Here’s my powerpoint for the assembly!
