She was very pregnant at the time and her son was eager to try breaking a board on stage, as he had seen other kids doing.
We often hear the words, â€œI'm not sure you remember me," from people we meet on our tour with Team Rock who we have met in the past. This time it came from a woman in Salem, where we were again this year.
She went on to remind me of how we met last year. She had come through with her son right after the show had finished last year. She was very pregnant at the time and her son was eager to try breaking a board on stage, as he had seen other kids doing. I had informed them that it cost $2 and had responded that she couldn't do that because she didn't even have enough money to buy her son a bottle of water.
She then said, â€œYou just stopped what you were doing and went into your tent and walked back out with waters for us and the told my son to come up and break a board for free." Now, here she was in front of me a year later to say thank you - her baby is born, she is on her feet financially, and the best part? She has decided to sponsor a child through Team Rock and ChildFund! She is now giving back. She responded that, â€œWhen you just went and got water for us and then let my son break the board for free â€“ you just don't see generosity like that."
We have been encouraged by this reminder - that we just don't know how the simplest things we do for others will impact them.
