“I still get tears in my eyes if I talk about it but a few weeks ago I met a woman, here in this street and she looked very worried. I asked her what was wrong and she explained that she just got out of an abusive relationship. I invited her to my church. The next day she came to a church meeting and she told me that she barely has enough money to provide for her children. I am not a rich man but my faith has taught me to help those in need. I went to the supermarket and got her a bag full of groceries. I know that is not a solution to her problems but when I gave her the bag, I could see a bit of relief in her eyes.”
