He was sure that God would definitely help him. He was an extremely straightforward man. He wrote a letter to God. In the letter, he asks God to send him one hundred pesos. At that point, he went to the post office and put the letter into the pillar box.
The postman took the letter from the letter-box.

He read the address on it and laughed badly when he rushed to the postmaster and showed to him that strange letter. The postmaster also chuckled in the same way when he saw the address of God. When he read the letter, he got very serious. He appreciated this man who had extraordinary faith in God. 

He decided to help him. He asked the employees of the post office to contribute some money for keeping the faith of this man. He himself gave a part of-of his salary. But they were able to collect only a little more than half the money requested for by Lencho. The postmaster put the money in an envelope and addressed it to Lechno. Next Sunday, Lencho came again to the post-office.

He asked if there was any letter for him. The postmaster took out the letter and gave it to Lencho. Lencho was not surprised on seeing the money. But when he counted the money, he became angry. He thought that God could not have made a mistake. He took paper and ink and wrote another letter to God. Then he put the letter into the letter-box.

After Lencho had gone, the postmaster and the employees read the letter. Lencho had complained to God that he had received only seventy pesos. This time he requested God to send him the rest of the money also. But he asked God not to send the money through the mail. He wrote that the post-office employees were a bunch of crooks.
