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.

Well, I'm sorry that it has taken so long to update all of the YouCaring Family out there.  So many we know personally, but so many we will never know.   God blew this story WIDE OPEN.   It reached many countries beyond the USA.  For whatever reason, He chose these "ordinary" people to do reveal something "extraordinary" to the world.   

The You Caring video quickly went viral.  I believe reaching over 14 Million views.   We were contacted by nearly every National News station.   Aired with NBC News Lester Holt, then went on to Dr. Oz and ending with the Ellen Show.

To say this story has been surreal would be an understatement.   I think all of you saw the raw, genuine love of Tunde in the video.    She is everything we thought she was.   With each donation, her dreams only grow larger.   She will be finishing up undergraduate classes soon and then on to NURSING SCHOOL!  She has met with several nursing programs and she takes this very serious.   She repeatedly says, " she does not want to let any of you down".   We repeatedly say, "with God behind you, you are unstoppable".   

She has been gracious throughout this entire experience.   She continues to praise her Heavenly Father who made all of this possible. 

She will forever be a part of the Wright family.   She continues to communicate with us each week.  Her mother's church even hosted our family one Sunday and fed us afterward.   Their gratitude is deep.  Their love for the Lord and helping others is genuine. 

Thank you all for taking part in the beautiful gift of hope, love and generosity.   Education is opportunity.   Now, Tunde has an opportunity to change the direction of her life and her children's lives.   Love and blessings to you all.
