God Provides

This month we are studying Colonial America. Through the events of that time we see God's hand guiding and providing.

Especially how the Pilgrims were taking care for. First, a tribe of Patuxet Indians, who were then wiped out by sickness had cleared the area they chose to land. Before the sickness came, one of these Indians was captured and taken to England, where he learned English. He returned a year before the Pilgrims arrived. Squanto taught them how to grow food "Indian style" and introduced the Pilgrims to the chief of the Wampanoag tribe that controlled all southeastern Massachusetts, putting them on friendly terms with them. God also provided an able and godly leader for the colony, William Bradford, who led and served with integrity, generosity, and wisdom all his days.

Now somebody tell me that was just coincidence.
