School Bus Driver Blesses Kids on His Bus in Unbelievably Generous Way for Christmas

Published

on

This year has been bursting with story after story of Christmas kindness. When members of God’s creation mirror him in the act of giving generous blessings, it’s truly a beautiful thing!

To Chris Jenkins, driving a school bus for Lake Highlands Elementary School in Texas isn’t just a job, it’s a ministry.

“I’m not at a job, I’m on a mission from God,” he shared with NBC5 in a statement about an incredible way he chose to be a blessing to the children he takes to and from school each day.

At first, Jenkins had considered hosting a gift exchange on the last bus ride before Christmas break, but his wife, Shaneqia, suggested that every child might not be able to afford a gift.

“No hesitation,” she said, describing her generous husband to the news outlet. “He’s always wanting to do something for the kids, he’s been talking about it for months.”

That’s when the two of them hatched a plan to simply give each child a great gift instead.

So, for the next several weeks, Jenkins stashed a little bit from each paycheck and built up a gift list as he casually asked each kid what they had on their hearts for a Christmas gift. “We talked about the things that they would want and I made a mental note of it and wrote it down,” Jenkins revealed.

And, just as he’d hoped, the last ride before the students’ holiday break was an incredible one as they boarded the bus to find it jam-packed with gifts.

This is Curtis Jenkins, a bus driver for our school. He asked every kid on the bus what they wanted for Christmas and…

“He is the most amazing bus driver,” said Katrina Clift, the mother of one student on Jenkins’ bus. “He’s always good to [her son] and all the kids on the bus.”

Clift also shared with NBC5 that Jenkins had even blessed her family with a turkey this past Thanksgiving.

“It literally made me cry. I hung up the phone with him, I went over to my husband and I put my head on his chest and I just cried,” Clift said of this amazing man. “It makes me feel like I belong and I mean something to this community, especially to the people who love my children.”

New Zealand Madman Bravely Chased by ‘Good Guy’ with a Gun

As with any act of gruesome horror, there is always a shining light, somewhere in the darkness, that rekindles our belief in the human spirit.

New Zealand

 The sheer horror and terror of what has occurred in New Zealand stands at such close proximity at this time, that it is difficult to fully gauge its gravity.

It has certainly shocked the nation itself, as New Zealand isn’t known as a dangerous, or even particularly excitable, place.  The serene and unfathomably gorgeous surroundings, along with the California-like dichotomy of beaches and ski mountains within hours of one another, lends the Kiwis the unmistakeable air of “chill” that one normally reserves for Malibu or San Diego.

In fact, this rampage claimed the lives of more New Zealanders than an entire year of homicides would have in the country.

But, as with any act of gruesome horror, there is always a shining light, somewhere in the darkness, that rekindles our belief in the human spirit.

That’s right; a good guy with a gun.  It’s the same story that we hear time and again, all over the globe, and it rings fundamentally true in nearly all aspects of life.

It is not enough to hope and pray for the bad guys to turn the other cheek.  No; we must also hope and pray that good men will not stand aside and do nothing in the face of such evil.  And, by God, let’s hope they’re armed.

Fair Haven, Vermont’s Newest “Mayor” to Take “Office” Tuesday

Mayor Lincoln will take the reins, (no pun intended), on Tuesday, after beating canine competitor Sammie Viger in the bizarre mayoral race.

When it comes to community fundraising, there are no shortage of unique and inspired ways in which Americans can help one another out.

Between the candy bar cartel, the car wash cabal, and the bake sale barons, local communities throughout our nation have long found interesting and unique ways to stash a little extra cash for a shared project.

Now, one town in Vermont is taking things a step further, allowing residents the opportunity to put a name on the mayoral ballot for a mere $5, with the cash raised going to the creation of a new public playground.

But there’s a catch

A 3-year-old goat in Vermont beat out more than a dozen other pets for the title of honorary mayor.

Lincoln, a Nubian goat, was chosen by residents in Fair Haven, a town of roughly 2,500 people that sits along the border of Upstate New York, to serve as mayor for one year.

The goat was among 15 other animals on the ballot in the running for the honorary position. Lincoln beat out several other animals, including cat Sassy Towle, a dog named Stella Heibler and a gerbil named Crystal, for the job.

Lincoln took 13 of the 53 votes cast, just surpassing a dog named Sammie Viger who took home 11.

The young, female goat will lead the town’s Memorial Day parade later this year, dressed to the nines in yet to be revealed “custom sash”.

And while the fundraising stunt only brought in around $100, local officials are hopeful the exposure that Lincoln brings to the town will be beneficial in as-of-yet unknown ways.
