In 2014 good Samaritan Chris Wright did something kind for a stranger. The person had told Wright that she was going through dark times, and as a committed Christian Wright thought nothing of helping her out. But three years later, it was Wright who was going through his own period of darkness. And then a female arrived at his family home to tell a jaw-dropping story that reduced him to tears.
This truly remarkable story began in 2014 when Wright was traveling down a highway with his wife and kids. The family from Bogart, Georgia, were off to their regular place of worship, The Cornerstone Church, in nearby Athens. But it was a miserable day, and they spotted a miserable sight through the rain-streaked windows of their car.
Along the side of the road, a woman was battling through the drizzle with a gas can in her hands. Wright had always been brought up to “Do unto others…” and it was with this in mind that he made his next decision. Having dropped his wife and kids at church, Wright turned the car around to check on the stranger on the roadside. It was still raining when he found her trudging along with her container.
