Leaving dinner at the Colonade, a white car with driver window down stopped as if going to ask for directions. A lady in her twenties asked for gas money (first sign of scam). Talking very fast she continued to tell a story of being kicked out of her house by her mother and needing gas to get to the Pinson area to stay with her father (second questions mark). None of us spoke, so she proceeded to tell us her mother beat her and she really could not return home. With our minds thinking this is a false story and our hearts feeling sorry for her, no money, but you can follow us to the gas station and some gas will be put in your car. We were not sure if she would follow us, but as you can see from the picture, she did. Asked to see her DL, she showed it; asked where she lived, she answered; asked if she was hurt, bruised but will be ok; asked for her phone number; she gave it; asked if she knew Jesus, she said I do; asked if she wanted my phone number in case of an emergency; she did. A few gallons of gas and she was off with a hug and many thanks.
........(2 days later), I read a story on Facebook about a young lady in a white car begging for money around the Colonade and areas in the near vicinity. Is it the same person? I have no idea.
I do know that God's Word says:
who asks of you,
and do not turn away from who wants borrow from you."
