  1. It happened this year and it was at the church that's known with the "I celebrate you" line.

    The woman sitting right beside me opened my hand after the close of service and dropped cash.

    There are still cool people out there o and πŸ‘‹ don't be deceived.

    3. When I wanted to enter secondary school, we did not have money for settlement, we didn't have anyone, we were new in the town. I picked two government schools. One big school and one small one. All the three lists that came out for the small school, my name was not there and I did well in common entrance. Then their admission closed.
      The big school too, two list had come out, my name was not there. Remaining only one list.
      We were worried, I was sad cos I knew my parents could not afford a private school which were very rare and expensive in the nineties in the town we lived.
      Then one morning, my dad met a stranger in a taxi, he told him about me casually and he said he would see what he can do, he told my dad to come to his office the next day and gave him description.
      The following day, he gave dad a note to the principal and that was it. My name came out with the last list.
      It was a big government school and very difficult to get admission into it even till now.
      I appreciated and still appreciate that man and I will never forget him. God bless him

    1. A total stranger gave me admission into a faculty where people were paying 200k, 250k, plot of land to gain admission, my relative by marriage helped me arrange my first job and a boss that I knew from a distance, who was well known to be ill tempered got me my second job.

      I am a woman of faith and I always receive grace, that's why I always carry out acts of mercy whenever I can because I know I will always reap mercy in my times of need.

  3. After shopping at the mall, I went to pay, the guy waiting before me asked them to add mine to his bill. I least expected it because the things I bought were much. He said it was because I greeted him when I passed him while picking things. I had already forgotten I greeted someone. I felt that in my soul.

  4. Several, but here's a recent one. I boarded a tricycle and the man was supposed to take one passenger in front but carried two to help out. At a check point, one of the guys alighted but not before the police caught sight of it and hastily arrested the keke-Napep driver. He had driven us for quite a distance and it would be wickedness to just walk away so I paid N50, hoping that I would use the remaining balance of N50 to get me home, all the tricycles I hailed down refused to take N50 and that was what I had, I had to start begging the keke-Napep drivers to please accept to take N50 but most just drove away. The last one I hailed down also wanted to drive away but the passenger just beckoned on me to get in, I thanked her for her help thinking she would complement what I had but she paid N100 for my Tfare. May God bless her immensely πŸ™

    4. Thanks a lot guys. I appreciate.

      A couple of things but the one I won't forget is when I traveled to Uyo for the first time I think 2009 or thereabout. A woman I didn't know gave me accomodation in her place to sleep when the number of the person I went to see suddenly became not available.

      I wasn't even having money for lodging but my transportation back to Enugu. I was a student at the time.

      Some people are just too nice in this life. In the morning she wanted to even make me a meal. If she had her way, she would have made me stay for some days more.

  9. I remember how I took a bus from one town to another without money to pay for tfare.
    And I was hoping for my cousin to meet me at the bus-stop to pay for me, we almost got to the bus-stop & cousin wasn't yet close, I was silently praying the conductor wont harass me.
    A stranger seated beside me struck of a conversation with me at the exact time i was thinking about my predicament and a after a few secs of pleasantries he paused and asked me if I had money to pay for my trip and that was it, he paid oh my gosh see reliefπŸ₯°πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  10. When I was 7 years I guess, (can't remember clearly) A stranger met me in the bookshop that was on the ground floor of our house then and He brought me book, it's a Bible story on Isaac and Rebecca. And told me that I was beautiful.

    I can't forget that experience. It is one of the reasons I do little nice things for strangers, I love planting seeds of beautiful words in the hearts of children.

    That was a great encounter for me❤️

  11. when I got divorced,I didn't appear in court and I wasn't sent a copy of the judgement.
    I and my ex were cordial about the divorce because of the kids,each time I asked for the divorce judgement,he said I do not need it,that I could continue using his name and he wouldn't mind submitting any papers regarding that,for about six years he never released it.
    Something important came up for me and he still refused.
    So I embarked on a journey to a state I had never been to because he took the case to a place he had upper hand, about 7hours journey to where I was based.
    That will be my first time in a court and I started asking for the clerk office.
    Immediately I got to her office and I explained why I was there,she offered me a seat beside her,she offered me drinks and snacks which I refused.
    She asked for the petition number,they searched and searched but they couldn't find my case file but saw the numbers before and after.
    We went from one court room to another maybe it would be there,at a point her colleagues wants to start raising mouth,she told them I was her younger sis,so the people in charge kept checking...nothing was found.
    I was so tired at this point,praying this journey shouldn't be fruitless.
    As she was thinking of what to do,a groundnut seller came again,she asked if I want,I said no and she asked me to stay calm.
    So she went through the divorce petition and saw that it's was a lawyer that she knew that handed the case.She called the man that I was her younger sister that the petitioner has refused to give me the divorce judgement and I really need the copy.The lawyer at first was been defensive but the woman said we are not contesting or appealing,that we just need a copy that she wants to send it to me
    Within few mins,his secretary brought his copy and I photocopied it.
    I have her 2k to buy card because she was using her phone to call people on my behalf,she refused but I forced her,I told her,can't I give my aunty money.she was just an angel if not I would have wasted time,money and my energy.
    When I went through the divorce judgement I died and woke up again I guess that's why my ex never wanted me to see it....

  18. This one comes to mind. Years ago, I was new in town and have/had no family member in that town/state. Only made a friend months later.
    One day, we had a program in church and I went. Nothing was wrong with me oh! Shortly after program started, ulcer issue started! No warning! Nothing! I went outside, sat down, hoping for a "break", so I can rush home. Omo, the thing no gree. My friend came out and saw me. Went back in to call someone with a car, so I could be taken home. Instead the man drove me to the hospital. We got there and I was quickly attended to.
    Not quite long the pastor came. After speaking with the doctor, the pastor and the man came back, asked my friend to stay with me, that the bill given, they were not having that amount on them. So, they have to go back to source for the money and would be back once the program ends.(The pastor left while the program was still on. I think he said, the man's wife told him).
    My friend and I waited for them to come. Like over an hour later, a nurse came in and asked, "Ahn ahn, you are still here?" We said yes, the pastor hasn't come. She then asked, "Are you not...?" I said I am.
    Then she said, "A man walked into the hospital, called your name and said he came to pay your bill. After he paid , he left."
    We were like 😳😳😳. Which man? From where? She described the man, "Tall, fair. Putting on white up and down." I know nobody in that town. I was still very new in that church. There was no tall fair man in that church that day, before that day or after that day. My friend ran out hoping to see the man, by chance. No way! We were just quiet and wondering.
    Later, pastor came to pay. He was told someone had come to pay. Who?! He came to me. I don't know anyone. He called the man who drove me to the hospital. That one, hadn't told anyone of the incident. Just the man, his wife and the pastor knew I was taken to the hospital. Pastor decided to call some members, maybe, by chance, they heard I was taken to the hospital and they came to pay. They were like, "The person we saw hours ago, is in the hospital?" We left the hospital finally and me, in my mind, I was like, "Boya it is Jesus". Abi, wetin make I say again..

  19. Was at Sandfill area in town doing partime babysitting, there was a manhunt I guess coz two guys dashed into the compound and hid, dunno where, and dunno where the gateman went leaving the gate unlocked. I thought it was kidnappers I peed a little, they took my phone and did a shhhh sign, I took the baby and made a run to go outside when uniformed men blocked the gate and asked if anyone entered, I just shook my head cos I was close to fainting. They left, I stood outside, knowing they won't hurt me in public. Gateman came back, told him there's hoodlums inside, he marched In. And was like who dey here, who goes you, minutes later he called me to come in, I did, lo and behold, they held him down, gave me my phone and thanked me for not snitching. Almost 2yrs later, on my way to Bonny, our boat ran into sea pirates with sophisticated guns that looked like trumpet, our boat stopped, they circled us twice creating waves, I was saying my prayers when I heard, Oyibo look up! Someone tapped me, As I looked up, he waved, another one said how you dey? I nodded fine. They looked familiar, I suddenly remembered where, didn't know when I smiled a little. He asked for my number, I called it out. That's how we left. A week later I got an SMS, "call me if you need any assistance". I replied, noted. I'd be damned if I ever need the services of a criminal. For what? Not even in naija anymore. The number is still active on WhatsApp. I informed my madam of the incident when they came back anyway, but left out some parts for safety purposes. Don't post if I'm not anonymous.

    1. Wow! They remembered your kindness and so they did not hurt the people in your boat.

  21. I have benefited from strangers many times. But there's one that baffles me each time I remember it. It happened when I was pregnant with my last child. Hubby had just lost his job & things were very rough because I wasn't doing anything as at then. One day, I was going for my routine antenatal without any cash on me. Getting to the clinic, I was told I had low blood pressure & needed to take a bottle of coke. So I approached one of my colleagues who came with her husband & asked for #200. Immediately the husband heard that I had low blood pressure, he just dipped his hands in his pocket & gave me #5k. I was so excited because I got more than I asked for.

  28. When I was little, same year we relocated to Asaba from Benin. I went for my Common Entrance Examination(that was when you leave the premises of your to another school to take Common Entrance depending on where your name falls. Don’t know if they still do it now) after my mum dropped me off, she warned me not to leave after the exam that she will be coming back to take me home, and I said okay ma. I got done with my papers and saw other pupils(some whom I was older than) leaving the school to their various houses and something just whispered to me “no fall hand o, you can do it”. That was how I embarked on trekking o, until it was dark, I started crying. So many saw me and ignored only one lady who was in a road side shop stood up and walked towards me and tried to know what the problem was, after much persuasion by her, I opened up that I was lost as I couldn’t trace my way home, at this time crowd had gathered. After much questioning on the details of my address, I managed to tell them that one I get to a market(mami market then) I will be able to locate our house and so the same lady boarded a bike with me and that was how I was taken home. Immediately I was sited in my street, if you see the jubilation, my mum ran out and her eyes well both swollen and reddish. She couldn’t say anything to me but kept thanking the lady as she paid off the bike guy who also went to drop the lady. I remember that lady now and beg the Almighty to bless her and grant all her good heart desires. I do hear of missing persons for days, months and even years and I just wonder what could be going on with them. What if I had fallen into the hands of the wrong persons, what could have been my fate and that of my lovely family, I praise God.

    If I pass that school now eeh I go just smile. *St. Bridges Asaba

We were returning from LAUTECH to Lagos in a luxurious car the students paid for & we got to Berger arround 12pm & a woman Mrs Bedford I just got to know in the bus while we were jisting decided to accommodate me in her house at Ogba & gave me Egusi soap which I ate because I didn't eat throughout the day because of time factor. Note her husband came to pick her that night & in the morning she dropped me at the bus stop. Her husband is a pastor at Christ Embassy.

  32. Sorry, going anonymous on this.

    The kindest thing a stranger has done for me is as a M.Sc student, I was really struggling to complete my dissertation, I had done quite a lot, the research, the thesis etc.

    But putting it together was tough. I had just 24 hours to deadline submission and I planned not leaving the library till I had completed it, all of a sudden, a stranger, a PhD student just came and sat beside me, he was Ghanaian, he saw I was struggling and asked if he could help me, I was like I need all the help I can get.

    We spent all night, not sure we blinked an eyelid putting everything together, before printing and binding in hard copy just before 12 noon submission.

    He was my guardian angel, I wouldn't have made it if not for him.

    God bless him wherever he is.

    Though he later told me he wanted to MARRY, I didn't know how to decline because I was not attracted to him physically. I only told him I was engaged back home.

  36. I was driving down the freeway and had a blown tire. I forgot my wallet at home. A pickup truck pulled up and inside were 2 balded white guys. I panicked thinking about White Supremacist but luckily my State is not known for such. I was desperate. They volunteered to give me a ride to the nearest tire shop. We got to the tire shop. I asked the owner for a used tire to be placed on my spare wheel. The plan was to leave my phone with the owner and then drive back to pay him and collect my phone. The owner came back with a brand new tire on the wheel. What? I was pissed. he told me that the 2 white guys paid for it and they will be back. I was dumbfounded. I turned and there they were. Tears rolled down my eyes. They still took me back to my car on the freeway and gave me a pamphlet about their church. They are born-again christians. One is actually a pastor. I am still in shock up till today. Never judge a book by its cover.

  42. I wanted to buy akara for the whole family to eat but I knew the money I had wouldn't buy enough akara for everyone. Standing there at the akara stand, I wished in my heart to get a little more money so I could buy more.

    The akara was fast finishing and while wondering if there would be any left when it got to my turn, one of the guys I met there asked the seller to sell to me. I politely refused since I met him there. (Even though I really needed the akara, I wanted to be fair). After he was attended to, he gave me 1k and left. I was dazed. Someone I don't know from Adam. It was as if he heard my thoughts. Can't even recognize him if I see him again. Didn't know what to say other than repeated, "God bless you. Thank you." I even started crying. I just sat on a chair close by.

    Then akara seller announced that there was still ground beans available and if I could wait, she'd fry more akara. So I was able to buy enough akara for everyone and still had some change left.
