Another one of my Hero's
Friday afternoon, I was walking through a mountain valley amazed at the beauty all around me... taking a moment as it were...the peace was suddenly broken by a distressed phone call by a friends of Jengishs'... They were two American couples that were on a day trip to lake Isikkul. On their way home, they started having car troubles, and their car died in a little town in the middle of nowhere...so they thought.... I heard this conversation going on, and could only imagine how concerned they would be seeing as none of them spoke Russian or the local language. Then they saw ahead a big sign in the center of the road that spelled the name of the town they were asked "do you see a Grocery store on your left?", "yes" with that I was on my phone to Sergei to see if he could help... it turns out he was in that very grocery store at the time... I told him to go outside and stand on the porch and raise his hands in the air and someone would come to him that is English and needs help... we then told the friends that we just had a vision, and that a man is standing on the front steps with his hands raised into the air, and if they went to him, he would fix their car for them.... 35 minutes later, Sergei had found and replaced their fuel pump for them on the spot, and they were on their way.... I would imagine still wondering what just happened.... I later was talking to Sergei, and he thanked me for giving him the opportunity to help! ... that's why he is one of my hero's... and I know an American couple that would second that.
