"That's a Nigerian thing to do"

We hear a lot about "Random acts of Kindness", and if you look for opportunities there are lots to be had. Today after church it was wet outside and a very light rain was falling. A young lady was walking on the side of the church driveway in her heels (getting stuck in the mud) and nice clothes. I immediately suggested to Doug that we stop and offer her a ride. She gratefully accepted. We were going to let her off at the bus stop, but who knows how long she would have to wait for her bus. She goes to the University of Windsor and it takes two buses for her to get to her residence. It would take her an hour to get home, so we drove her to her residence. This was her third time at our church. She's from Nigeria and has no family in town. As she was getting out of the car, I called her name and gave her a twenty dollar bill. She smiled and said "Thank you", and then she said "That's a very Nigerian thing to do." And then she left.  I turned to Doug and said, "That was so cool! I had no idea, but God did!" That was a good thing!
Blessings, Diane
