    left, and he was
    He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house.
    However, he lost
    his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door.
    Instead of a meal
    he asked for a drink of water. She thought he looked
    hungry so brought
    him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly, and
    then asked, "How
    much do I owe you?"

    "You don't owe me anything," she replied "Mother has
    taught us never
    to accept payment for a kindness." He said... "Then I
    thank you from
    my heart."

    As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt;
    physically, but his faith in God and man was strong
    also. He had been
    ready to give up and quit.

    Years later that young woman became critically ill.
    The local doctors
    were baffled. They finally sent her to the big city,
    where they called
    in specialists to study her rare disease. Dr. Howard
    Kelly was called
    in for the consultation. When he heard the name of the
    town she came
    from, a strange light filled his eyes.
    Immediately he rose and went down the hall of the
    hospital to her room.
    Dressed in his doctor's gown he we nt in to see her.
    He recognized her
    at once. He went back to the consultation room
    determined to do his
    best to save her life. From that day he gave special
    attention to the

    After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr. Kelly
    requested the
    business office to pass the final bill to him for
    approval. He looked
    at it, then wrote something on the edge and the bill
    was sent to her
    She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take
    the rest of her
    life to pay for it all. Finally, she looked, and
    something caught ;
    her attention on the side as She read these words.....

    "Paid in full with one glass of milk." (Signed) Dr.
    Howard Kelly.

    Tears of joy flooded her eyes as her happy heart
    prayed: "Thank You,
    GOD, that Your love has spread abroad through human
    hearts and hands."
