Coffee shop workers pause drive-thru to pray with distressed customer
Workers at a coffee shop in Vancouver, Washington, dropped everything to pray with a customer who had just lost her husband when they noticed that she was in emotional distress.
“Turns out the young lady in line ahead of us lost her 37-year-old husband last night,” said Barbara Danner, who was in the coffee shop drive-thru and snapped a picture of the touching moment.
“When the DB guys & gals noticed she was falling apart, they stopped everything and prayed with her for several minutes, invited her to come back for prayer and support, as well as anything else that she might need,” said Danner.
“She got to the window and explained what happened, how her husband passed away,” said Pierce Dunn, one of the employees who prayed over the woman. “We just love people. Anytime we see someone sad or mournful it takes five minutes to make their week, make their life. It’s a small price to pay,” Dunn said.
Since the image was posted to Facebook, Danner’s photo has been shared more than 120,000 times, has more than 370,000 likes and more than 15,000 comments.
