A Georgia teen’s prayers were answered recently when she sent up balloons asking for help buying supplies for college.
Mykehia Curry needed some dorm supplies before starting as a freshman at Albany State this fall.
“My family has really been going through a lot lately because my mom is a single parent and she’s also disabled,” Mykehia explained. “It’s kind of been a struggle just trying to get everything I need.”
The Macon teen was unsure about how her family was going to get the money to pay for the items, so she put her worries in the hands of a higher power.
She wrote a note to God, attached it to balloons and sent it up.
Mykehia thought nothing would come of the request, but Jerome Jones found the balloons and note while working at a construction site and decided to act.
“They floated all night and they landed right in my hands, I mean practically,” Jones said.
Jones, who is also a minister, tracked down Mykehia and delivered a mini-fridge and comforter to her family’s home on Tuesday.
“She was like, “You’re really going to bring me a refrigerator?’ and I said ‘Yes!’” he explained.
Mykehia is leaving for college on Wednesday and classes begin on August 13.
