She decided she would take her lunch and sit with them, so she put her sandwich in a brown bag and walked over to the spot where the men were eating. Sporting a big smile, she walked up to the group and asked: “Any of you men know Jesus Christ?” They shook their heads and looked at each other, very confused. Then, one of the workers looked up into the steelworks and yelled out, “Anybody up there know Jesus Christ?” One of the steelworkers yelled back down, “Why?” The worker yelled back, “‘Cos his mum’s here with his lunch.”

I’m glad he’s done, too!”
