Kenyada Waters was out for a drive when a disturbing sight on the side of the road stopped her right in her tracks.
It was a man holding a sign that said he had been laid off, and that anything helps. Waters was so moved by him that she felt compelled to stop. So she did.
In a Facebook post, Waters explained that the man told her that he had worked in the tree cutting field for 20 years. But sadly, he got laid off a few months ago and was having some trouble getting back on his feet. Nasty comments from people passing by him didn't help.
"He said that people would drive past him and yell out get a job you stupid lazy bum not knowing he has submitted over 20 applications and have not heard anything back," Waters wrote.
Even worse, the man's cell phone had been cut off, so he had no way to check in to see if the potential employers had gotten back to him recently.
But that was about to change.
"God told me to pay for his cell phone and not only did I pay for it one month but I paid for two months," Waters wrote.
And as soon as his phone's service returned, the man got a text message saying that he could possibly have a job in two weeks. And he also found a new loyal friend in Waters, who closed off her post with a poignant message.
"Extend your hand," she wrote. "Don’t point it."
