Mykehia Curry is going to be the first member of her family to go to
college as the 18-year-old student from Georgia took out student loans
to pay for her tuition and housing at Albany State University, but she
didn’t have money for some of the things she’d need for her first time
living away from home.

Curry’s mom is on disability, so money has been tight. So last
week Saturday, just days before she was scheduled to leave for school,
she asked God for help.

“I wrote a note that said ‘God please help me get the rest of my
stuff for college. Then I said ‘Amen, I love you God’ and I wrote my
name and number”
 Curry told CNN. She tied the note to three helium
balloons leftover from her grandmother’s birthday celebration and let
them go.

“When I was writing the note, I was just trying to reach out to
God. I didn’t know where it would land. I thought that someone would
pick it up and call me and tell me they got it or just throw it in the
trash”
 she said.

The balloons flew about 15 miles northeast and carried the note to
Gray, Georgia. That’s where Jerome Jones, a Baptist minister, found it.
Jones also works for Georgia Power and spotted the balloons on Monday
while he was out on a job.

“I saw something shiny and floating, so I walked over there and I
got it and it was balloons with a note tied to it. They floated all
night and they landed right in my hands, I mean, practically”
he said.

He called Curry and offered to buy what she needed. “He said they
would love to help me out.I was so shocked and surprised”  Curry said.
