The Story

Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing so some people have entertained angels without knowing it.  Hebrews 13:2.

While we are immensely grateful for all the nursing care provided to Judy during her illness, there was one nursing aide in particular that touched our hearts. TunDe provided gentle love and kindness to Judy, sweet words of prayer when we needed them most and a connection that only Divine Intervention could orchestrate.  We quickly realized that she was our guardian angel.

During one of TunDe's shifts with Judy, she shared a story about an encounter with a stranger back in 2014. She told us how she had run out of gas and was walking to a gas station with $5 in her pocket.  A young man circled back to help her.   He picked her up, filled her gas can and gave her what he had in his wallet.  Following TunDe's story, Judy's son, Chris, was stunned.  He then informed TunDe and those listening, that the "young man" in her story was him.  Tears were shed.  God was praised because we don't believe in coincidence.  We knew at that moment that God had woven every fiber of this story together.  The encounter that had blessed them both 3 years ago, came full-circle when the Lord appointed TunDe to show up on our doorstep to care for Judy. 

In the following days we learned more about TunDe, her family and her dreams.  Her mother is a local pastor, and Tunde recently gave the Easter message at church where she spoke of her encounter with the stranger.  She loves the Lord and incorporates God's love into the care she gives each family she helps.  

In Judy's final days, nurses were amazed at how hard she fought to stay alive.  Five days before she passed away, TunDe pulled Chris aside on the front porch of Judy's new home. She informed him that the Holy Spirit had revealed to her that Judy would pass away on her birthday...and that is exactly what happened.   TunDe rushed to the house shortly after Judy passed; still in her birthday celebration attire.  We cried, we laughed and we rejoiced in a God that is bigger than our circumstances.  He was in the midst all along.  Chris had entertained an angel 3 years ago and TunDe completed her mission from beginning to end.

It would be an understatement to describe TunDe as amazing.  She exudes joy and lives every breath to serve people as she was designed to do by our Heavenly Father.  TunDe is a nursing aide struggling to cover educational costs to fulfill her dream of becoming a nurse.  We would love to surprise and bless her in Judy's honor.  In lieu of flowers, we are asking friends and loved ones to donate to TunDe's education so she can continue to fulfill her calling.  To know her is to love her and we are all in awe of how God worked so miraculously for our paths to cross again when we needed her most.

There CAN be "beauty for ashes" and "joy in sorrow".  We are living proof that GOOD can come from even the darkest moments of life.  We believe that God does work for the good of those who love Him.  That no matter how broken this world is; He is always at work.  Although the void from the loss of Judy is undeniable, we will choose to focus on the "life" that her death allowed.  

We aren't sure why God used these 2 families to encounter something so supernatural, but we are thankful that He did.  His soverienty and protection was made evident through our family's experience.  

We wanted to surprise Tunde and simply thank her for her servanthood, but then we felt led to share our "testimony" with friends.  Little did we know what would happen next.  Our friends were moved and they shared it with their friends, and then those people shared, and then those and so on.  Last time we checked the Facebook post, there were over 700,00o views,  7,000 shares and the money continues to rise every hour.  We had planned to shut the site down tomorrow, but can't do that as long as people are continuing to share.  Obviously, God is at work in the heart of His people.  

Tunde never once asked our family for help even though she had approaching financial school deadlines that she could not possibly meet.  Tunde has exuded humility through the entire experience and given God all of the praise. Her authenticity is evident on the video. Her  school advisor became aware of the funding site and gave her an extension to pay fees.  The "pay-it-forward" ripple effect has been beautiful.

Whether you were a friend of the Wrights, a friend of Tunde's, a co-worker, an aquantaince, a fellow believer or a perfect stranger....you have been part of something much larger.  You have helped death lose it's sting in our family, you have contributed towards a deserving servant and you have most likely changed the course of many people's lives. God is love and He has a plan.  Love is powerful.  Thank you all.
