Manuel Reija is a convenience store clerk in La Coruna, Spain. He found a lottery ticket on his counter and before throwing it away he checked the numbers. He discovered it was a $6.3 million winner. “I was standing up, but I had to sit down. I almost broke the chair, I was so flustered,” Reija told local reporters.
He turned the lost ticket into authorities. After one year the city began an advertising campaign to try to find the buyer of the ticket. Should they fail to authenticate the ticket’s actual purchaser within two years of its purchase date, the lottery authority will give Reija the $6.3 million jackpot.
How interested in finding the lost owner do you think Manuel Reija is. How motivated is Jesus in finding those who are lost? --Jim L. Wilson and Rodger Russell
