Mykehia Curry, a college-bound freshman from Macon, Georgia, is going to be the first person in her family to go to college. She took out student loans for her tuition and housing at Albany State University, but they don't cover everything she’ll need for her first time away from home. The 18-year-old’s mother is on disability and money is tight, so she decided to ask for God’s help.
Curry wrote a note asking, “God please help me get the rest of my stuff for college,” along with her name and phone number. Then she sent the note off into the skies, attached to some helium balloons leftover from her grandma’s birthday. It worked!
Baptist minister who also works for Georgia Power, found the balloons and note while out on a job in Gray, Georgia, 15 miles away. Jerome Jones called Curry, offering to get her what she needs, and has already delivered a comforter and a mini fridge for her dorm room. He told her, “God answers prayers." Now she’s ready to start college and the two plan to stay in touch so she can keep him posted on her success.
