Helping Jason

About some four years ago,when i was in primaryy school;there was this partivcular bright student named jason. The guy was extremly smart in books but there was one thing which seemed to affected him and that was poverty in their home. He could often come to school without necessities like enough books and other supplementaries to asssist him during studies.Though it was areal struggle to him but he managed to pull it off until he approached the nationnal examinations.He did it with the others and when the results were out he had posted exemplary results.He even managed to scoop the best position in the whole district.He was called to a national school but then cropped up.He had no one to pay his high school fees.He could not locate one.Fortunately an individual by the name plus shistsama a pastor by profession volunteered to pay the boys school fees throughout high schoo. The boy finished medicine at teh university.Were it not for that good samaritan his hopes would have been quashed definately.
