The night before I got the money, I got an email about a young man in our town who was striving to survive in a tough situation. He was a High School Honors Student who was working, had just been injured, was on his own and living in his truck. I just knew I would get the money the next morning, and felt like God was “setting me up” to help him. I DID get the money! I bought a $100 Walmart gift card and through a series of amazing events, I was able to hand it to the young man myself.
He was a bright eyed, gracious and very together young man. He gave me a big hug and was very happy. He told me, “I can’t tell you how much it means that someone cares.” He was going to use the money to buy groceries. When I told our group about him, one of our members donated even more money to him.
I am still smiling about how God lets us partner with him and the tenacity of the young man. I have no doubt this young man is going to make it.
