God Remembers Us When We Are In Need

It is one day my mum traveled and left us some money to use at home but the money got finished before she came and we had nothing to eat.I was the elder girl so my younger one would come crying to me for food but i had nothing to give them but they kept on coming to me sleep on until i told them i didn't have money we sleep until tomorrow they started crying again that they can't sleep without food.We entered and slept but from nowhere our neighbor came and called us when he arrived he gave us a 5 liter jerrycan full of milk and one bunch of matoke we cooked and ate and some food remained we ate the following day we were very happy i knelt to our neighbor to thank him.
