A Wisconsin mother of three received a Christmas miracle when she accidentally sent a message to the wrong person on Facebook.
A desperate Amy Rickel was at a breaking point. She had moved her and her three children to a new place to be closer to the father of her children. She found herself, however, without a job and without a home. The family had been living in a motel room, but they could’t afford any more nights there and things took a wild dive downward.
That was when Amy reached out to a friend to ask for prayers and support, but she reached out to the wrong friend. She messaged Brian Van Boxtel when she meant to message somebody else with a similar name.
Upon seeing the message, Brian knew something had to be done. He wasn’t going to let things fall to the wayside for this struggling mother. His response was a simple, “what would Jesus do,” and an offer to pay for her hotel room.
With the help of others, this single Mom is working to get back on her feet. She’s grateful for the love and kindness Brian showed and is happy there are good souls out there.
