VANCOUVER, Wash. — A popular coffee spot in Washington seems to be serving something much more powerful than a caffeine boost.
Barbara Danner was at the drive-thru of a Dutch Bros. on 138th Avenue when she saw multiple workers leaning out the window and into the car in front of her. When she asked why the employees were leaning out the window, she learned the woman in the car in front of her had lost her 37-year-old husband the night before.
Posting the touching photo to Facebook, Danner wrote, "When the DB Guys & gals noticed she was falling apart, they stopped everything and prayed with her for several minutes, invited her to back for prayer and support as well as anything else that she might need. Prayers for the young family and you know where to stop for coffee!"
One of the employees pictured, 19-year-old Pierce Dunn, told the Oregonian he offered the woman free coffee and that stopping to pray with her was an emotional moment for him and his colleagues.
The image has gone viral with more than 300,000 reactions on Facebook and thousands more comments from users sharing their own uplifting encounters at the popular coffee shop.
