Piolin Sotelo is a very giving person that loves to help others and loves to teach others that they need to be there for one another in whatever is possible.
To give just one example of the many, many things he has done to help people, Piolin along with the help of a local furniture store fully furnished an apartment for a woman and her 5-year old daughter who had just recently had a separation from her husband and was battling leukemia. The woman lived in a homeless shelter for a while with her daughter, but was later able to get an apartment. With nothing but a few zippy cups and plates to feed her daughter, she invited an old co-worker to her home for a "taco." She didnt have one piece of furniture in her home, but still felt that generosity to invite an old friend to her home because where there's enough for two, there's enough for three. When the friend saw her situation, she told Piolin about it, and he was quick to act furnishing her entire apartment and making sure she had everythingshe needed. He made sure first and foremost to provide a bed, bedroom set, blankets and all for the child, then proceeded to furnish the woman's bedroom, living room, dining room, everything else. Needless to say the woman was overwhelmed with his generosity and his faithful listeners were truly touched and reminded that when someone is in need, we need to do what we can to help.
