Uber volunteer


Another real time tale

I met an old friend today and during our conversation I told him I miss being incognito; that I love being in places where I don’t have to explain who I am or what I do.
Shortly after, I ordered an Uber.
After the pleasantries
Driver: Aren’t you that lady from that charity
Me: Huh?
Him: 40 days over 40 Smiles
Me: * so much for being incognito& šŸ™†
Me: Uhm..YesšŸ™ˆ Have we met?
Him: No, I have seen you on tv and online
Me:But it’s dark, how did you even recognise me?
Him: I just knew it was you.
He goes on to ask about our upcoming events and I lay out the entire calendar. What happened next surprised me in the best way possible.šŸ˜„
He asked “Besides the events, do you have volunteer opportunities?”
“Yes!” I almost squealed.
Him: That’s what I am interested in.
He went on to tell me his mum works for a rehabilitation centre and he has always been around children.
I ask a few questions and get to know him. We are now around Old Kampala, nearing home.
Him: God works in mysterious ways. This week I have been applying for volunteer opportunities and God sends the overall head of charity to my doorstep
Me: *silently* I am not exactly the head but…
Him: When you truly want something and give it your all, it often finds you
Me: I agree.šŸ˜Š
Anyway, as I speak, I have added him to the whatsapp group for volunteers. He was excited when I told him it even exists and that he will join.
Oh, his name is Peter by the way..and boy am I glad he was my Uber driver this evening! šŸ˜ŠšŸ˜Š
