MARIETTA, Ga - At Unity North Atlanta Church, members are learning that gifts sometimes come in thought provoking packages.
"We ask for miracles, we believe in miracles," said church member Dixie Smith. "To have a miracle come in that way is amazing."
Like so many other places of worship Unity North Atlanta Church has faced its economic challenges. The offering plate has been a little lighter of late.
"We know prayer is a beautiful force that can transform everything," said Rev. Mercedez Guzman. "We see now we were heard."
Their prayers prompted an act of generosity that came in the form of three Keno tickets.
On a Sunday between services, a church member presented the church with an envelope. Inside, staff members found two Keno tickets worth more than three thousand dollars.
The very next day, the man was back with yet another winning ticket. It was worth 990-dollars.
