Another 3 “lost and found” miracles that happened in the past few months in 2022. Very embarrassing but I must share and thank the people who returned my belongings and thank God for the lucky circumstances.
(1) On 5 May, while having an argument over the phone on the bus, my wallet dropped from my pants’ pocket which was too shallow and I didn’t notice. A few moments later, a preteen girl who was sitting behind me handed it back to me. I am so grateful for this young stranger, otherwise I would have lost my means of withdrawing money and lost my Malaysian identity card. And I also give thanks to God nobody stole it because Brazil is known for its high crime rate.
(2) On 11 July, I almost lost R$45 because I gave a R$50 note to the bus driver and he didn’t have change, so I was supposed to get my change when the bus stopped at the terminal and everyone got off, but eventually after the 40-minute bus ride, I forgot. I was also on the phone with my mom, so it was a miracle that something made me suddenly remember to collect my change before boarding the 2nd bus, and luckily the previous bus driver was still there with my change. So I really thank God for causing me to remember before boarding the 2nd bus while being very occupied with a phone call.
(3) On 15 July, if you saw my stories, I was with Monize and her brother, visiting the 2nd option for a house in Brazil to rent, to raise money for and migrate my mom into, but as we left the place, I forgot my bagpack, which contained my laptop, my passport, and possibly my wallet as well! But as we were walking into the distance, a man (the landlord’s neighbor) shouted to us and ran out with my backpack. I ran back to retrieve my bagpack, which saved us so much inconvenience.
So again, I’d like to thank God for saving me multiple times again and also bless the people who returned my belongings.
