It is true that a little bit of kindness can go a long way. You have no idea the power that your actions could have on future events.
When Chris Wright and his family were headed to church one rainy Sunday, he saw something that caught his eye. A woman was walking alone on the side of the road.
Something inside of him pulled him back towards the woman. After dropping his wife at church, he set out on a mission of kindness.
Wright went and picked up TunDe Hector from the side of the road. Hector told him that her car had run out of gas and that she was walking to fill up a gas can.
She told the stranger that she only had $5 in her pocket, and Wright just knew he had to help. He filled up her gas can and gave her all the money that he had on him.
After delivering Hector back to her car, the two went on their separate ways. Their paths didn’t cross again for three years.
Wright recognized the story and realized that the woman was talking about him. The aide was Hector!
“We don’t believe in coincidence,” said Wright’s wife, Carmen. “We’re a family of faith.”
After Judy passed away, the family requested that instead of flowers, people donate to Hector’s tuition fund. The initial goal was $1,000, but because of the generosity of strangers, over $26,000 was donated.
Carmen caught a video of the moment that Wright revealed the good news to Hector. Good luck holding back tears while watching this interaction!
