Coffee Baristas Pray for Woman Who Just Lost Husband


A regular day at Dutch Bros. Coffee shop took an unexpected turn ending in a powerful scene of prayer.

It all began when Baristas Pierce Dunn and Evan Freeman saw a distraught women pull up to the window at the Vancouver, Washington, location.

Freeman told Fox News the woman shared that she was "having a really bad day. Her husband passed."

"As soon as she said that, I was like, 'There's nothing more you need to say. We got this. We're going to do what we do every time we get someone who's in pain or hurt. We're going to give them our love,'" Freeman said.

The two offered her a free drink and then they did the unexpected. They all grabbed her hand, bowed their heads and together they said a prayer.

"Basically I said, I just want her to have peace over the situation and help the mourning of her and her family," Dunn told Fox 12.

Barbara Danner caught that moment on camera. She snapped a photo and posted it to Facebook. The post has gone viral reaching over 327,000 people.

Dunn and Freeman said the woman was so grateful for them taking the time to pray.

"This is a normal day at work. We're doing what we do everyday," Freeman said.

"If every single person did like an act of kindness, or just had a smile on their face every single day, the world would be a completely different place," Dunn said.
