When John saw a nun standing by herself on a dark, lonely road, he was skeptical about giving her a ride because the road was infamous. But Jon gave in to his kind nature. When the ride was over, the nun expressed her gratitude in a way that Jon did not expect. You won’t believe how she thanked him!
Jon became a truck driver out of necessity. He had grown up in a home where he lacked parental love, care, and guidance. His father would constantly hit him, and his mom never found the courage to stand up for him. Jon was in high school when he decided he couldn’t take it any longer, so he ran away from home.
While hitchhiking his way across the country, Jon encountered an old trucker who immediately sensed that he was troubled. When asked what the problem was, John opened up to him and shared his story. Touched by the young man’s story, the man decided to help. He brought John into his home and raised him as if he were family.

When Jon turned 28, his foster father advised him that it was time to get a more stable job. With a recommendation from his foster father, John got his first truck driving job and started his career as a driver.
A year later, John got married to a beautiful woman, Cindy, and she got pregnant a few months after the wedding. The couple didn’t realize they were having quadruplets until it was almost too late. This led to health complications that made Cindy unable to work, so she became a stay-at-home wife and helped Jon in every way that she could.
In due time, Cindy gave birth to a set of healthy quadruplets—three boys and a girl. With the arrival of the kids, John, who didn’t want to be irresponsible like his dad, increased his shifts on the road to provide for his family. Determined to keep his family well cared for, he looked for extra gigs along with a friend and secured a job that paid him more than his usual rate to transport produce. His goal was to use the money to buy his own truck so he wouldn’t have to pay 40 percent of his earnings to the leaser.
Unfortunately, things wouldn’t go as planned. One night, while John was driving to their next delivery stop, they were involved in a ghastly accident. John had dozed off for a few seconds and woke up only when another truck collided with them. His friend didn’t survive, and the process of recovery was long and arduous, leading John to lose his life savings and earnings. His family, who had been living comfortably before, was plunged into penury.
However, John was a tenacious man, and it didn’t take long for him to get back on the road. He would have to work for a few more years before he could afford to buy his own truck. On his first trip after the accident, something unexpected happened. John was driving solo and needed a place to stop for the night. Unable to afford a motel, he decided to sleep on the side of the road.
Just as he was about to make a turn back onto the highway, he noticed a nun standing alone by the side of the road. The nun held her hand out, asking for a lift. John contemplated leaving her there, fearing for his safety, but her exhausted and frightened expression made him reconsider. He offered her a ride.
As they drove, John wondered why the nun was on that part of the road and heading to a strip club called “The Shack.” He kept his thoughts to himself. When they arrived, the nun hurried inside and asked John to wait for her. He waited but grew tired and hungry. When the nun finally came out, she was with another woman who seemed to be under the influence, followed by some thugs.
The situation quickly turned dangerous, and John had to pay off the thugs with all his earnings to protect the nun and the woman. He then drove the women to a Rehabilitation Center, where he handed the woman over to an old man. The nun thanked him and gave him the number of her lawyer, promising him a new truck as a gift.
On his way back, John found a wad of cash in the jacket the nun had returned to him. The nun had left him a card that read, “The world needs more men like you.” John went home with the money and felt happier than he had been in a while.
The story ends with a question: “If you were John, would you have helped this nun out? Would you still call the lawyer and accept the new truck after realizing the nun gave you the money?”
