Yesterday, Chris and I went to look a cakes for Mango’s birthday that will be coming up in March 22! Yes, he’s turning one :p After we walked to get some bomb ass Gelato Ice Cream at Piccomolo Italian Ice Cream, which, Chris never had before ^__^ Since we had Mango with us for cake tasting, we couldn’t sit inside of the Gelato Ice Cream place so we sat at a bus bench right outside.
While sitting there, these two couples and their son come and sit. The dad was in a gray tank with tattoos all around and the mom was partially bald with a bandanna on her head. The son starts playing with Mango and the dad starts telling us what happened today that brought them there. He told us how he lived in Monterey Park, on Moore St., with some white lady, whose caretaker had left her and she was furious about it that she took it out on them. Whipped the dad with a dog chain and even the mother when she tried to stop her. The dad was angered with how the lady could do that in front of his son so he pepper sprayed her and called the cops. When the cops came, they told the couple and their son to grab what they need and get out. He, the dad, explained to us how he was a felony and the cops didn’t precisely believe his story.
When they were outside, waiting for the bus to come, the white ladies son and friends jumped out of a car with knife so they made a run for it. Isn’t it sad how this all happened in front of a 6 years old kid? Sighhh, SMH -__-“
Anyways. So here they are, in front of us, with proof of marks and admitting he was a felony on 3 strikes. I stood there, listening, with eyes opened, I prayed to God asking him “what am I suppose to do, God?”. I asked them a couple of questions. Like,
Q: Where are you headed to?
A: My wife’s mother’s house in Glendora.
Q:You didn’t have any weapons with you to protect yourselves at the bus stop?
A: No ‘cause I’m a felony and I have a life to live for now. 15 years in prison was too long.
I turned over and looked at Chris. I whispered, quietly, “Can we?”. He paused and stared at me for a second then replied,“Of course, love.”
I asked “Would you guys like us to take you to Glendora?” they replied “Yes, please!” with excitement and the father turned to the sky and said “Thank you, God!”. While I was walking to the car, I prayed “God, I pray that this is what you want me to do and I pray that they won’t rob us at the end of the ride”.
In the end, they didn’t rob us. We dropped them off somewhere on Route66 St. at a trailer home. The kid actually went to the middle school I graduated from and the mom went to the same high school as I. Funny how things played out. I’m, honestly, wondering what God is doing with them right now. It was risky but God has plans for us. Just Pray.
