BPD acts as angels for elderly woman who was robbed
BOSTON (WHDH) -- A 101-year-old woman relied on faith until her money was stolen.
“Money doesn’t matter. I’m a woman of God. God supplies my needs,” said Ruth Chavis.
But she had $400 dollars stolen right out of her pocket book in her own apartment.
“The first thing I thought was to ask God to forgive me for having it in the bag,” said Chavis. “We were taught that you don’t put money out where people can see it. That’s tempting people.”
Chavis was saving up money to buy a new television set. She watches mostly religious shows and sometimes the “Price Is Right.”
When the money was stolen, she called the police and prayed.
“I was waiting on the lord and this is what he did,” she said.
The responding Boston Police Department officers were so touched, they began collection donations from their department.
“I told them before they did all this, I’m waiting to see what my god is going to do for me,” said Chavis.
In just three days, they raised $500. They returned with a new TV for her and they even installed it.
“I didn’t realize police men would do good things. I thought they were chasing thieves and stopping robberies and things,” said Chavis.
Her prayers were answered, thanks to her very own angels in blue.
“I thought it was beautiful and wonderful,” said Chavis.
Thanks goes to her very own angels in blue.
