Glenn put out the call late Thursday for anyone able to join him in Charleston, SC. He didn’t know what was going to happen, but he knew he needed to be there to show support for the community. One woman who joined Glenn on Friday shared an incredible story on his Facebook page of a miracle she witnessed on her way to Charleston.

I just want to share an amazing moment I just had at the gas station. As I'm pulling in to fill up I see a car stalling just as it turns into the station. I see an older gentlemen wheezing and sweating and pushing. Its over 100 degrees here and it feels like 110 with the heat index. He calls out and says "young lady!" but he stops to catch his breath so I run over wanting to help push. He said 'no m'am I'll push it.' I protested and and told him I was strong.
While this is happening another guy stops jumps out and pushes the car. He needed money to put gas in his car. So I ran to get my wallet. He asked for 6 dollars. I filled his tank. He is on his way to the charleston AME church. He had one eye and one leg. He lost them in Desert Storm. We hugged. We exchanged praises.
I tell this story because it is good. It should be shared.
I prayed for opportunities to serve where needed and the Lord provided. The other person who got out to help was white. Another person pumping gas was black she witnessed the whole thing and said to me "God will bless you". I feel as though that moment was my blessing. I too am on my way downtown to walk to the AME church to pray and serve. I'm bringing my 3 boys who also witnessed the whole thing.
Kayla tagged Glenn in the post along with the hashtag "#ShareTheGood". She also included a picture of herself alongside the veteran.
Glenn loved the story, and shared it on his Facebook page and Monday's radio show.
"This is how we are blessed by serving others. This is how God takes evil and turns it into something wonderful!" Glenn wrote.
