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.”
