…tells him it is a challenge to do more.

His joy was overflowing after the announcement and he had to briefly abandon his duty as the MC of the event, leaving his master waiting to celebrate the car by opening and jumping into the driver’s seat for few minutes. Such was the extent of the joy.
For the kind giver, he made a point during his speech to announce the owner of the hitherto special gift. In his words:
“This man has proved himself worthy in service. He is behind successful organization of this event without much directives from me. Sometimes when we speak, even at midnight he will be on his way without a means of private transportation, ensuring every errand is completed , abandoning his kids, his job, and other private engagements to perfect this one meant to bless others.
“Then I thought to myself, it this young man can give so much to make others (especially the widows) smile, it will be encouraging to also make him smile. That was when I decided to buy this car to ensure that the assignments he has already taken upon himself becomes more smooth for him.
“By appointment, he is supposed to be my CPS, but by virtue of extension of his kind heart and dedication to duty, he is more like assistant at all areas to make this dream work. I urge him never to relent”.
