I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve heard this. Snatchers/pickpockets are a constant threat on the streets of Manila, so I get warned if I leave my backpack partially unzipped. The warning often comes from someone I’ve never met or talked to before.
Today I was blessed by another act of kindness. I had lunch with a buddy of mine after worship. From there we took a taxi over to the mall. Someone caught up with me in the mall and informed me I had left something in the taxi. I ran out and retrieved my sunglasses from the taxi driver, who was waiting with is window open. Two complete strangers went out of their way to keep me from losing my shades.
My point is this: for every one snatcher, there are thousands of honest people here. Let’s not forget this.
