Prayers Answered With A Knock At The Door

Prayers answered for Louisiana couple as PCH Prize Patrol Arrives!

K Charles PCH Winner

I don’t want to say that a young and energetic couple — without jobs — would actually be enjoying the quiet of a day at home – since both would clearly welcome employment.  But Keithroy and Topeka Charles were at peace with their situation; they pray daily and radiate a confidence that God will provide.  On the morning of April 14 they had discussed how wonderful it would be if their frequent online sweepstakes entries in the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes would bear fruit – in the form of a Big Check.

Keithroy, a St. Kitts native, and Topeka, a native Louisianan, were sitting down to a midday meal in their Baton Rouge, LA, apartment when there was an interruptive knock on the door.  Who could that be?  Their five-year old boy was not due home from school for over an hour, and they were not expecting anyone else – unless …!!  Could this be their morning prayers answered?

Topeka glanced out the window and thought she saw some colorful balloons passing by.  Could it be?!?!  She and Keithroy ran to the door, pulled it open, then faced the scene they had seen countless times on TV.  But this time it was at THEIR front door: the PCH Prize Patrol stood smiling right in front of them — with a video-cameraman, a TV news reporter, bouquets of roses and balloons, champagne, and a Big Check – for $10,000.00!

Keithroy fell to the ground in disbelief while Topeka started screaming, then quickly recounted how they had talked about such an improbable event just a few hours ago.  It turned out that both husband and wife had been regularly entering sweepstakes online at pch.com.

The couple’s apartment manager drove by, honked and waved “Congratulations!”  Soon Topeka’s sister arrived with more hugs and expressions of joy.

“We really needed a break, and I am glad that God has given us this break,” said Keithroy afterwards.  “Now I can pay off some of my debts, complete skills training so that I can gain better employment and be able to support my family and help those who are also experiencing difficulty in their various lives.”

The local NBC/Fox TV news reporter was also on the scene and filed a report that you can see at this link: http://www.nbc33tv.com/news/your-stories/one-br-family-wins-big

The lucky couple was thrilled to hear that, thanks to their many sweepstakes entries, they are still in the running for even bigger prizes – like $100,000 and $1 Million and $10 Million!

Of course, YOU can be in the running too.  Enter for chances to win!  The more entries, the better your chances of winning!  Click here on this link to pch.com and enter – today and every day!  The next prayers answered with a visit by the PCH Prize Patrol could be YOURS!

Keithroy Charles said...

Thank you soo much Maureen, Melody, Micheal, Curtis, Monica and Vickie. This was nothing but God! I mean it was only the Wednesday before that I went aside and prayed that God would provide for me only 1500 hundred dollars that day (Wednesday); and if He didn’t please help me to serve Him still. He did not provide the amount I asked for when I asked. But the morning after I was just praising Him. I awoke with the song, ‘When there is trouble in your life sing praises’ , and that morning I praise God and thanked Him for all I had, the things others may take for granted, such as being able to see, hear, breathe, a bed to sleep in, my wife, my existence on the land of the living, my parents and all attached to me. I just gave Him all the praise that my mortal tongue can muster for He is worthy!
It was around midday , as Dave rightly said, we heard that knock and it was just too much at the time for me to process! I guess thats why I am still speechless. God is just soo very good! He treats us way better than we deserve. He is interested in how we treat each other. May His Holy name be praised forever more! Amen.

    Thank yo so much Keithroy for your reply to All of us!!

    I am so GLAD for you as I know that you did need some financial help.. & with God’s blessings you got it!!!

    I truly believe in prayer & I know that God listened to yours!!

    We all sometimes doubt(if we are doing right) when we ask God for things , but as you have shown, God is always there when we MOST need him..Maybe NOT when we WANT but he is still there.. & I agree with what you have said.. although we may not always get the finacial blessings, we should be always grateful for what we DO have… I have a grandson who is both blind & autistic… I feel for him at times, & his situation.. but I am also SO gratful that he is in my life.. As he has shown me SO much MORE of what life is all about..

    I am still praying but just maybe there are others that may need more than me at this time, but when God sees that it is right for me , my prayers may be answered as yours were..

    I wish you well with your winnings & hope that it will help you prosper for your family..

    My Best,
    Maureen

      Hi Maureen , thaks again. I am sorry to hear about your grandson but at the same time happy that he brings endless joys to your life! Sometimes there can be completeness in brokeness which reminds me of a story about two pots; (if I may indulge) one pot was nice and shiny on the and boasted much about itself while the other was worn and broken. As time would have it, one day the broken pot got so depressed that his master wanted to know what was wrong and so he told his master that he was not good for anything, not even the simple act of holding water.
      The master replied that on the contary he was the very best pot that he had because everyday when the master gets water from the well all the water that falls from the broken pot water the lovely trail of flowers leading from the well. So you see my friend life may not be all that we want it to be but it is what we do with what we have. Be blessed in Jesus name and keep the faith. Continue to enjoy your grandson! (smile)

    Hi Congrats to your family in your time of need. My fiance is out of a job and my hours were cut. I too play PCH each day to brighten my day. Yesterday my fiance asked our manager for the mail out of a community mail box. She rudely replied to him “What’s so important in the mail, you think you’re goning to win PCH? He was put off that she goes through our mail as I was. I then told him about your win. It put our mood in a different direction. I have hope we to are blessed like your family was and I hope you can rest easier at night. Can’t win if you don’t play right? Does’nt hurt to pray either. Congrats again
