Last year she had a student whose wife came to talk her before a class one day. Her husband had been assaulted and robbed of his paycheck. They didn’t have any money for anything to eat. The wife broke down and cried, saying they didn’t even have money to buy tortillas for their family of four. During the class the facilitator remembered that she had a $10 bill in her pocket. Only half of the money was hers, but she decided that she would use it to buy this lady some food. After the class she took the lady to the market and bought her some food. The lady was very grateful and said, “I now realize that Christians are good people. I didn’t expect you to give me money. All I thought you were interested in was giving Bible studies.”
