Elijah was one of God’s helpers. God told Elijah no rain would fall for three
years. Elijah told the king what God had said.
God took care of Elijah. God told Elijah to go to a town. There a woman would give him food and water. When Elijah got to the town, a woman was gathering sticks to build a fire.
“Would you bring me some water?” Elijah asked. “And please bring me a piece of bread, too.”
The woman said, “I only have a little bit of flour and oil. I was going to make bread for my son and myself.”
Elijah said, “Go home and make some bread for me. Then make some bread for you and your son. You will have enough flour and oil until God sends rain.”
Each day the woman made bread for Elijah. Then she made bread for herself and her son. The flour and oil were not used up, just as Elijah had said. God took care of Elijah, the woman, and her son.
