God’s been showing up like crazy lately (or maybe we’re just more open to it!). Saturday, after Fabio and I were hanging out with some friends at a church, there was a woman standing outside the church asking to speak to someone. She needed food and shelter for her and her two young kids.
We gave her some contact numbers after calling 211… then we asked them if they wanted to go to Subway so we could treat them to some food. They came with us and when we got there, we realized she was from Portugal… since Fabio’s from Brazil, they both speak Portuguese as their first language.
This is truly AMAZING because I’ve lived here almost 3 years and only met one Portuguese-speaker. I think the Subway guy figured out we were helping them because he started giving us special deals.
