When the Wright family shares the incredible story of fate and faith, they begin with a Bible verse: "Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing so some people have entertained angels without knowing it - Hebrews 13:2."
It's fitting, because their story is about how a twist of fate brought an angel in disguise into their lives. It starts 3 years ago, when Chris Wright and his wife Carmen were driving to church. It was a rainy day, and they noticed a woman walking along the side of the road.
TunDe Hector's car had broken down, and she had a long way to walk to the nearest gas station. To make things worse, she had just $5 in her pocket. Chris didn't know any of this, but after dropping his wife off at church he turned his car around to help her.
"I have to go back. I have to help her," Carmen remembers her husband saying. He picked TunDe up, drove her to the gas station, bought her a full can of gas and handed over the rest of the money in his wallet before driving back to church.
It was a very generous act, but one that doesn't surprise Carmen at all. "He was raised that way," she said. "He's kind and generous to everyone. He'd never picked up anybody before, but he felt compelled." As it turned out, TunDe would remember Chris and his act of kindness, and paid him back in a big way.
