In Cabot, Arkansas, the community has come together in a beautiful way to support a 57-year-old blind man who never lets his disability stand in the way of his work.

Bill Moczulewski, a 57-year-old Walmart janitor works the overnight shift from Tuesday to Friday, from 10 pm to 7 am. He used to walk five miles to work every day. His journey took two hours roundtrip, through rain or sleet. Bill is legally blind, but he never let that stop him. “I don’t call out,” he said. “I want to work.”

But God was definitely watching over this hard working man. So he sent the right person to change his life forever.

A couple of years ago, Christy Conrad spotted Bill on his daily trek and offered him a lift. This act of kindness blossomed into a friendship. Conrad learned about Bill’s challenges and was moved by his dedication. “He’s going to go to work no matter what,” she remarked, recalling a morning she picked him up in nine-degree weather.

Conrad wanted to ensure Bill never had to walk to work alone again, but she knew she couldn’t do it all by herself. So, she created a Facebook group called Mr. Bill’s Village. She hoped to find a few volunteers to look out for Bill. To her surprise, the group quickly grew. It turned into a community-wide effort with nearly 4,000 followers today. Members take turns giving Bill rides, making sure he’s never left to navigate his way on foot. “Now it’s like everyone is competing to give Mr. Bill a ride,” a group member said.

The story of Mr. Bill’s Village is more than just about getting a ride to work. It’s about a community coming together to support one of its own. People drive around looking for Bill, offering rides, and even bringing him meals.

Chris Puckett, a local car dealer, wanted to contribute by offering Bill a vehicle. Knowing Bill couldn’t drive because of his vision, Puckett handed the keys to Conrad instead.

The village’s kindness doesn’t stop with rides. They also started a GoFundMe campaign to assist Bill with his expenses. Thanks to the funds raised, Bill and Conrad recently enjoyed some Domino’s pizza, a treat Bill hadn’t had in a while.

Have you ever received unexpected help from a stranger, as if God sent them? God sees our tears and knows us better than anyone else. When we fully trust in Him, He sends help in ways we could never imagine.

And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4:19
