See How A Man Helped A Frustrated Jobless Man Who Collapsed On The Road Because Of Hunger(Photos)

As shared by Austin(originally shared by Nyameba Eden Kofi Yevutsey)...

'My last post as a 34 year old. I saved a life and I'm proud of it. I was driving by when I saw this guy lying on the floor in the hot sun. Several people passed by him and just pulled out their phones and took pictures. Others insulted him for being a drunkard. But I stopped and got closer and asked what was wrong. With a faint voice I heard him say "I'm not drunk. I didn't drink any alcohol". I saw in his eyes pain and helplessness. In the hot afternoon sun I saw that he was shaking as though he felt cold. With the help of the police officer in the picture we carried him to a better place under a tree and gave him water. Then he asked for food and we gave him food. After eating he told us his story.
His name is Isaac Boateng. A fisherman from Elmina. According to him these day when they go out to sea they don't get any fish. So out of frustration he came to Tema to find work but after roaming through the city for a week without any success he started begging for food or asking to work - do any work for food. Most people just turned him away and others threatened him. Before he fell and collapsed on the streets of Tema community 11, before I found him he hadn't eaten for 3 days. By the grace of God he is on his way back to Elmina right now with a little extra money in his pocket to keep him going for a few days. Apart from fishing Isaac also is a repairer of damaged bicycle tyres. He has learnt his lesson he told me. He promised me he'd stay in Elmina and not come foraging for opportunities in the city anymore. He said to me that the wickedness of the people in Tema surprised him most. Once he gained some strength he became very chatty and I must say I enjoyed the time it spent talking to this human being. I learnt today to work harder and to make life better for others with the fruit of my labour. I learnt that in every body is a beautiful soul that needs care and love'

Today's bible teaching: The Spirit of truth will guide you into all the truth.

The Spirit of truth will guide you into all the truth.
A reading from the holy Gospel according to John (John 16:12-16)

At that time: Jesus said to his disciples, "1 have yet many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and  he will declare to you the things that are to come. He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. All that the Father has is mine; therefore I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you."

Soldiers Connive With FRSC Officials,Strip A Man Nak*d In Abuja For Not Having His Complete Car Particulars(Pics)

As shared by May Ebute......

'The brutality of the military and the paramilitary in Nigeria can actually make madmen out of sane people.
The man in this picture got his car impounded by Road safety officials around Mararaba axis of Abuja, for lack of having his complete vehicle particulars. He is said to be a kabu kabu driver who goes by the name John. He usually plies the Mararaba, Abuja axis. Eye witness account says that because he dared to argue with them, the FRSC officials called upon soldiers to help assist them in disciplining the man. Trust our Nigerian soldiers. They beat the man, rolled him in a pool of stagnant water and tore off his clothes, leaving him stark nakd, under the full glare of motorists and passersby. They say he who is down needs fear no fall. Rather than cower in shame, the man caused a major hold up. He blocked the highway in protest amidst cheers from spectators in solidarity with him. With stones in both hands, he dared any motorist to pass. Of course no one wanted a stone to land on their heads or cars, so they kept their distance.
I wonder when our military will learn to start treating civilians as humans and not animals'.
