Our 4.20 Story

After Bible Study on Wednesday night, Chenzo and I decided to stop by Dunkin Donuts to do some work, relax, (and grab a soft serve ice cream cone…yum!)

Chenzo had a skype call with a fellow in Taiwan so we decided to sit outside so the fellas would be able to talk. After an awesome meeting, a little old lady walks up to us and says that she has 28 grandchildren! By the way she was talking, you could tell that she just wanted some loved. We invited her to take a sit and chatted with her for a bit. Chenzo offered to purchase a sandwich for her as long as we could all pray together afterward…perfect time to witness- she seemed happy about that.

She said that she wanted to talk to her boyfriend first (who was in the car this time) to let her know. I heard him say “What? Why are they going to do that?!” Chenzo and I go inside when her boyfriend meets us inside. Guess who her boyfriend was? “The Hemp Guy” -His entire car is full of quotes and whatnot about hemp…as well as the shirt he is wearing. (I told you it was going to be a 4.20 story!)

Finally the little lady meets us inside and is excited about her sandwich…I keep her company as Chenzo talks to Mr. Hemp. After a few more minutes of conversation, it is not hard to figure out that the little lady is senile…which was very sad. She sure has a heart of gold though!

Once the sandwich arrives, the little lady seemed not to be eating. She had fake teeth that she continually played with…maybe she didn’t want to eat in front of me? Chenzo prompted to go outside with Mr. Hemp so perhaps she could eat in peace. I also knew it was only a matter of time that Chenzo was going to ask to pray with Mr. Hemp. From the brief conversation that I was involved in…this guy is extremely intelligent! Although his subject matter might not be concerned to be “normal,” he is a smart one for sure!

Soon after, the little lady came outside to join us…barely touched her sandwich but still had it to pick on.

We spent at least 45 minutes to an hour with this couple. Finally, Chenzo (who did a whole lot of listening for the past hour!) asked Mr. Hemp if he could share something he is passionate about…just as Mr. Hemp did with us. A little concerned, Mr. Hemp asked what that would be. Chenzo just wanted to pray…all together with the crazy car that they travel in on a daily basis. Mr. Hemp proceeded to spit out scripture and talk about his “version” of God and what he believes. Eventually, Mr. Hemp gives in. We all join hands and Chenzo prays. By the way Mr. Hemp was holding my hand…when Chenzo started to pray specifically for the couple, I could tell he wasn’t digging it…he was trying to fight what Chenzo was saying and blessing upon their lives. Well, it wasn’t really him he was doing so…but the dark devils inside of him. All that mattered was they accepted what was being said.

It was no coincidence that little lady came up to us and started to chat. We were brought together for the very reason of sharing some of Jesus’ love with the couple and just loving on them. The next time you are in an uncomfortable situation that you might not want to be in…try to take a look at the bigger picture – and think about what our sweet Jesus would want from the situation.
