Helping people get back on their feet
In October, 2013 I was in a situation where I had to take a position as a taxi driver. This was not the position in my field of study, but it was the right decision for my family at the time. I was feeling low about my situation, but as it turns out, it was God’s plan for me to be here.
One cold day in December, of the same year, I drove a passenger to work and after dropping them off, noticed a homeless woman sitting outside Kroger in the cold. Looking back, I see that this was a defining moment for me. Here I am, feeling sorry for myself, because of the situation I was in and here before me is someone in far worse shape than I. Afterall, at least I had a job, and was sitting in a warm car and not out in the elements.
After staring at this woman for a while, I decided to get out and see what I could do to help her. I ended up getting her a hotel room and a pizza. I felt moved to try and make more of a difference, and during the next few weeks, I gave away nine jackets to those in need.
In January 2014 I decided to hold a coat drive. The response from the community was overwhelming to me. It was then that I realized people wanted to help but didn’t know how to do so. It is clear to me that God showed me that day. I now have a purpose here in Northern Brazoria County.
I quickly no longer felt sorry for myself. I had a new mission: Archangels of Texas. A mission I continue to this day, helping people get back on their own feet.
