Life throws challenges at all of us, we all go through a phase in life where all that we can do is sit and cry at our situation and pray to God that it passes soon.
This story is about LaMont Hammond, a 37-year-old man who recently became homeless. It was indeed a very difficult time for him, even more so because he could not imagine what his 8-year-old son would have to go through. He knew that he would not be able to afford a room in a hotel and the thought of his son sleeping on the streets of Atlanta, petrified him beyond words. What happened next will make you smile from ear to ear and maybe even make you cry happy tears.
Hammond could not imagine what to do next, and so he took his son to a nearby Waffle House to plan his next steps.
Though he tried too hard to conceal his fear, his eyes poured the truth; a truth that a security guard saw very clearly and was able to relate to it very well.
The security guard, Amen Webster, went over and asked what was wrong. About this humble gesture, Hammond said, "I really was about to cry, but I was trying to be strong for my son. I did not have enough money for a hotel room. They were all too expensive. I was stressed out because I didn't want my son to have to stay in the streets."
He said, "I have been homeless before, and I can see it a mile away. I just trusted in the Lord and decided I would let them stay with me."
Webster told his boss that he needed to take a quick break, and took the father and son to his house and told them that they could stay there for as long as they wanted.
This kind and generous deed is now making headlines all around the world.
