Paul The Hardworking Person

Once there was a person in my community who always help people in form, food, shelter and security and other thing. He was a hardworking and a polite person. There was a time when other cattle rustling came to steal other people's property e.g cows in our community. The cattle rustling came and steal all cows in the community.One day Paul came and form some groups and then he added some police to assist the community people. The community group he formed and added with some police came and kill those people (cattle rustling and bring the cattle back then the community people congradulate him. Moreover, there was also some poor people who did not have a place to dwell in and then Paul took them and give them some good place to dwell in and then he gave them some good food to eat to become healthy people in the community.
