Things looked bleak for the children in George Mueller’s orphanage at Ashley Downs in England. It was time for breakfast and there was no food. A small girl whose father was a close friend of Mueller was visiting in the home. Mueller took her hand and said, "Come and see what our Father will do."

The children were all standing around waiting for their breakfasts, and Mr. Muller said to them, "Children, you know we must be in time for school."
