What are the odds that you’d board the very same passenger bus you boarded last nyt again this morning in a city like Ife where there are hundreds of buses plying the road? Very slim chance, I guess.

…but GRACE made it happen for me today. I boarded the very same bus in which I forgot my phone last night some minutes ago! I got the driver in a discussion about my missing phone but he denied seeing the phone. On reaching my destination, being the only one left in the bus, the driver opened up and said “I know you must be a good person. Keep doing fine. My conscience will not let me rest since you asked for the phone. Here is your phone.” He opened his safe and handed me back my phone.

I thanked him, blessed him, and took off…smiling! Grace! *did I mention that a stranger paid my tfare in the same bus?*
