Do you fold your hands, bow your head and offer thanks to God before you eat? If so, this restaurant in North Carolina is offering a discount to people who "pray in public," and it may be the perfect place for you to eat and save money!
Mary's Gourmet Diner offers a discount to some customers if they pray before their meal. It is listed as a 15 percent discount for "praying in public." It started when Jordan Smith was traveling on business and stopped into this restaurant with co-workers to eat.
She told HLN they "prayed over our meal and the waitress came over at the end of the meal and said, 'Just so you know, we gave you a 15 percent discount for praying,' which I'd never seen before." more >>
This boy definitely had an angel looking over him on this day:
Lifeguard Joby Wolfenden-Brown hears the cries of a young boy who was dragged away by powerful rip currents near Crooklets beach in the U.K. He paddles out very far from the shore line to go and save him.
Rip currents are so dangerous that even the most experienced swimmers can drown after being taken out after a few minutes. Thank God for sending a guardian angel to help this boy! more >>
The surrogate mother of a baby with Down syndrome has forgiven an Australian couple for allegedly abandoning him.
Pattaramon Chanbua, a 21-year-old food vendor in Thailand, accused the couple of abandoning her critically-ill seven-month-old son Gammy and taking his healthy twin sister after they were born last year. She was reportedly paid by the biological parents to carry the twins but left to care for Gammy after they learned he has a congenital heart condition and a lung infection in addition to Down syndrome, according to News.com.au.
The couple recently denied Chanbua's abandonment claims. They claim that while they did use a surrogate for their baby girl, who is of the same age as Gammy, she does not have a twin brother. more >>
Dr. Kent Brantly's condition is improving after being moved to the United States from Liberia, where he contracted the Ebola virus. Before leaving for Liberia, Brantly delivered a powerful sermon, saying that God had a call on his life.
"In October, [my wife] Amber and the kids and I are moving to Monrovia, Liberia, to work as medical missionaries at ELWA Hospital," Brantly told the Southeastern Church of Christ in Indianapolis. "For two years we will live and work and serve among the people who, until the last 10 years of peace, had known nothing but the violence and devastation of war for the previous 20 years."
Brantly added that he had "never been to Liberia" but was going "because God has a call on my life. God did not give us a spirit of timidity," he noted, quoting the Apostle Paul. more >>
Hazel Jones-Olszewski, an 84-year-old widow who died just four days before her 85th birthday in January 2013, left the Church in Wales in shock after they learnt that she bequeathed more than $4 million (£2.6 million) to the St. Davids Parish Church, which she attended as a child in the village of Saron, Wales.
Church spokesman David Hammond Williams told BBC that the church was "very grateful" for the money and described it as a "once in a lifetime" opportunity for the diocese.
Jones-Olszewski, who had outlived two husbands, left Saron in 1991 to live with her son, Stansfield, in Chelsea before moving to a home for the elderly in Kensington in 2009, according to an obituary provided by The Diocese of St. Davids. more >>
