During last weekend’s Back to School Shop, I got to help a family checkout after shopping. Mom, her sixth-grade son and third-grade daughter didn’t have a lot of English …so our interaction was somewhat limited at first. We tallied up what ended up being about 5 bags full of supplies. As I looked up from the register and said, “$18.05, please,” the mom’s cheeks flushed and her eyes misted up. She opened her hand and showed all she had–$20. She reached out and handed the money to me, saying,” Thank you so much,” and she couldn’t contain her smile.
Thank you so much for your on-going support of NETWorks Cooperative Ministry programs.
