Testimony of God's protecton

For any of you who may have prayed for us yesterday, I wanted to testify of God's goodness and how he used your prayers...
Last night around midnight about 6 or 8 thieves entered our apartment area (i would call it a complex but its not what you think of in America as a complex) , threatened and put our security guards on the ground holding them at gun and knife point, asking them which house they should enter to get the most money. But praise be to God, at that moment, another own of the tenants entered the parking lot with his car, immediately saw what was going on, put his car in reverse quickly and went to police. Unfortunately the police weren't of any help (most of the time they aren't and many times they are involved in helping the crime happen) but the entering of his car into the parking lot was enough to scare the thieves away. When the security guard tried to pull an alarm it didn't work. Praise God the security guards weren't badly hurt and the thieves never had the opportunity to enter any homes. And the crazy thing is why all of this was going on, Dennis and I never knew anything was happening. And all of this happened just below our balcony. If we would have looked out we would have seen it all. And around midnight Dennis did wake up to get some water from the kitchen and we heard the dog downstairs barking but we didn't think anything of it. God truely protected us not only physically, but also mentally and emotionally i think. If we would have known all of this at the time i dont think either of us would have slept...God is truely a good God! Praise Him for His protection!
