Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Helping Homeless Harry


--by BethAnn, posted Mar 26, 2007
I am on staff at a church and we often get homeless folks that come in and need assistance. Part of my job is to try to help folks out, which is an awesome thing.

This week I have made a new friend and am touched by his genuineness and willingness to do what he needs to do to get out of his situation.  I have been able to help him with some food, gas, hooking him up with job possibilities and helping him get his car window repaired. 

While these are all physical things, I have been blessed by the interaction that we have had and have probably learned more from this man than any church member!!! 

The thing that sticks in my mind the most is that Harry has thanked me time and time again over the past week for my smile and for always being welcoming. 

In the process of blessing him, I think I have been blessed!
