According to the People’s Almanac, there was a shower of several thousand rubles that fell in the Gorki region of Russia in 1940.  No one has ever been able to completely explain the phenomena.  One possible explanation is that a landslide uncovered the treasure and a tornado picked it up and dropped it on the town.  When it comes to the work of the Lord, pennies don’t literally fall from the sky.  They do come from heaven, however, as God inspires people to support the work of the church.
