Showing Jesus with Simple Acts of Kindness
There they were on the side of the road with a flat tire. They were on their way home to the tiny mountain village Purisimo from a trip to Reynosa. They needed our help. He did not have the correct jack and he is a bit crippled. Also, the family was weary from a long trip on a hot day – Martin changed the tire for them. It meant a delay getting home and it meant turning around on the treacherous mountain road, but how could we refuse the Holy Spirit’s prodding? As we worked and talked with them we felt the presence of the Lord.
In God’s providence we had talked with them a couple of hours earlier when we saw them at a small roadside store in Linares where we had stopped for a bottle of water.
It was a simple act, but Jesus was there. He takes care of His people. Purisimo is a tiny mountain village who’s people had stolen our hearts when we visited them (see Purisimo Spiritual and Medical Health Checkup). Praise the LORD!
