This is amazing. Chris Wright came into contact with a mysterious woman in 2014, who was in need of cash and assistance. The woman, whose name was TunDe, had run out of gas and couldn’t afford to fill the car up with fuel. Chris took TunDe to a nearby gas station and gave her all of the cash he had in his pocket.
“I was being tugged on the inside again and felt the Lord said, ‘Whatever you have in your pocket just give it to her. She needs that,'” Wright says. “I gave her the $40 and she cried and I didn’t know if I’d ever see her again. But I felt like it was what I was led to do at that point.”
Fast forward to 2017 when Chris’ mother, Judy Wright, was suffering with Parkinson’s disease and in need of a nursing aide.
“My dad called me after [the potential candidate] leaves and said, ‘Hey, I got a lady that we need to use because for whatever it is, there’s something different about her that I feel better when she’s in the house and your mom loves her as well,” Chris explained. “I said, ‘Oh, great.’ I texted her and set up a time for her and I to meet to talk about the times she can care for her and what we wanted to have done.”
Little did Chris know that the prospective assistant was TunDe. He quickly learned of the nursing aide’s identity when the two began talking. TunDe told Chris about the car trouble that she had three years prior and how this mysterious man helped her on the side of the road.
“I just looked at her and I said, ‘TunDe, that was me.’ And we both just start crying.” The waterworks definitely didn’t stop there. TunDe turned out to be a stellar caregiver to Chris’ mother, so he and the family did the unthinkable.
TunDe passingly mentioned her desire to finish school and become a nurse as soon as her finances would allow for completing her education. Chris and his family put some legs to TunDe’s wish and raised upwards of $20,000 for the nursing aide’s cause.
“We know that God orchestrated this whole thing and wove it together,” Chris said. “We just kept saying, ‘There’s got to be something good that will come for this.’ We just kept praying. … It’s just amazing what’s been done.”
How beautiful is that?
