We all know how hard it is for so many youngsters to afford a college education. For many they have to put off going to college at 18 so they can save up the money needed first.
North Texas 19-year-old John Lopez got a job at Walmart so he could save for his college fund and put every paycheck into his savings account.
While on shift the 19-year-old found himself serving a distressed customer who realized she couldn’t pay her shopping bill. What John did next has gone viral.
John served a woman while on shift at Walmart who immediately caught his attention.
As he was ringing the items and the amount was going up, he noticed she was getting more and more distressed.
The panicked customer realized she didn’t have the money to pay for her items, and she started crying.
Without hesitating John said to the woman: ““OK, I got you… I got you.”
John paid for her bill with his own money.

After he said: “I just felt in my heart that the Lord told me I had to help her.”
Another customer was standing in the same line and couldn’t believe what John had done. She took a picture and shared it on Facebook letting her followers know what John had just done.
