She Gives Air Mattress To Man Living in Truck, But His Response Leaves Her In Tears

Julio Melendez who lives in the Florida Keys, lost everything to Hurricane Irma except his truck, which has now become his home. He uses his truck to gather, store, and deliver supplies. Recently Lozano, a worker of Friends For Global Change approached Melendez with a gift. She gave the man an air mattress so that he could sleep more comfortably. But he wasn’t interested in keeping it. Then Melendez told her

“I am giving this air mattress to someone else in need. There are so many people that don’t have transportation and they can’t come to get water so I come to get them what they need. I am delivering what I can to them and I sleep in my car. God Bless everyone. I am fine, I will be fine! There are people worse off than me…. as long as I have my truck I have everything I need. Thanks to God!”

Melendez’s words moved Lozano to tears. She shared the touching moment on Facebook and it inspired many people to join Melendez in his generous relief efforts. Friends For Global Change created a GoFundMe to raise money for a new mobile home for Melendez and it raised 24,450 dollars of its 50,000 goal in just two days. God bless this man.

Verse of the Day

When he had called together all the people’s chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Messiah was to be born. “In Bethlehem in Judea,” they replied, “for this is what the prophet has written: “‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler who will shepherd my people Israel.’” — Matthew 2:4-6 (NIV)
