Sarah Grady Ackerman interviews Becky and Julio Soto about how God changed their lives with a miraculous financial blessing.
Sarah: In April of 2008, Becky Soto headed to Havana, Florida to hear Pastor (Richard) Ledford preach at a tent revival service. That night Pastor Ledford felt led to give an assignment for those in financial need.
Becky: Basically he just said, “Go home and write all your bills, write a check for every single bill that you owe. Don’t sign it. Just write the bill and anoint each check.
Sarah: The next morning, Becky wrote out seven checks and told no one, not even her husband Julio. Less than two weeks later the phone rang.
Becky: I get a call. My niece goes, “I need to talk to you.” So I went over.
Sarah: Becky niece said God gave her a command.
Becky: He said, “Pay Becky’s debt.” She’s like, “What?” “Pay Becky’s debt.” “But what do you mean?” she goes. “She’ll know. She’ll tell you.”
Sarah: Becky says her niece then told her to go home and write out all of her bills.
Becky: And I said, “I already have that. I’m ready. I’m ready to receive that because I’ve done that.”
Sarah: Becky then added everything up for her niece.
Becky: And it came out to $27,249, and she wrote me a check, and on the check she wrote, “Silver and gold are the Lord’s.”
Sarah: More than $27,000 had just been given to the Sotos, a family of four that admits was barely getting by. Unaware of how this all happened, Julio was a little hesitant, and not too willing to take money from his niece.
Julio: And I kept saying, “What are you talking about? Are we talking about a loan or something?” And she said, “No, no.”
Sarah: Becky explained about the tent revival, Dr. Ledford, the checks, and her niece’s conversation with God. Julio realized declining the money would be an act of disobedience. It was a perfect blessing…a blessing too big for words…
Sarah: The Sotos believe this is just the beginning of the blessing for their family as well as Christian Heritage Church as a whole.
Becky: This was…it’s amazing. God is good all the time. It’s just amazing!
