This weeks' edition of Pay It Forward starts out near the South Plains Mall where we set up with our sign searching for holiday shoppers. It didn't take long for our playmaker to show up.
Within two minutes, Shirley Bobbitt spotted our sign and knew exactly what to do. Shirley wants to help a family from Africa who has been attending her church. Shirley said she wants to help out Kamohelo Oliphant and his family. The Oliphants have been in the United States for a little while and Shirley said that Kamohelo could easily be found at the church taking a test on the Old Testament.
With that said, we loaded up and headed to Sunset Church of Christ. When we arrive, we enter the building and climb the stairs searching for Kamohelo's classroom. He was taking a test. After receiving permission from the instructor, we entered the classroom and Shirley surprised Kamohelo with $300. Kamohelo was completely shocked and didn't know what to say since he was taking a test at the time we surprised him.
He did tell everyone thank you and the classroom erupted in applause. Another happy ending for a Pay It Forward recipient.
Be looking for our Pay It Forward sign soon! You may become our next playmaker!
