A guy with a computer science degree moved to a small town in northern Minnesota, where tech jobs are nearly non-existent, to do ministry. Unfortunately, the venture he set out to do didn't turn out as expected. Instead, he worked for a local home improvement store for a few months. He began to feel a burn to work with computers again, so he prayed.
One day, he woke up, and felt a strong impression from the Lord to get his resume together. He did, and went to one local tech business and absolutely bumbled his way with the employees there.
Unwilling to give up, he drove around for a short while and stumbled upon another business. Feeling a little unsure, he drove around the block three times before going into the store, questioning if he was hearing God correctly. Upon going in and talking to the owner, he discovered it was a technician's last day, and that the owner and his wife prayed the night before, asking the Lord to give them direction to fill their vacancy.
After a short, formal interview, he got the job within 48 hours and made relatively double what he was making at the home improvement store!
Two years (and 7 days) later, that company (only 3-4 employees) was sold and his job transferred to a company employing 750 and making $150m a year in revenue, not to mention voted one of the best workplaces in the state! Talk about increase! Justin D, Minnesota (March, 2014)"
