When her young son approached a man in a cowboy hat at the local rodeo, Charity Stewart Robinson posted about the miracle she witnessed on Facebook:
In an interview with IJReview, Robinson revealed that the story didn’t end there. Several people commented on Facebook that the mystery cowboy was actually a preacher at a church nearby:
Through the post we were able to reconnect with that stranger and attended his sweet church this morning and hear his preaching and he actually shared the story about meeting Linc and had him up on stage with him!
Y’all also might be happy to know he has been identified and someone has shared the post with his daughter so he can see it. He is the pastor of the Bar None Cowboy Church in Henderson, Jason Taylor.
My family is getting up to head to visit his church this morning. Amazing how the Lord works!
Yesterday he was a stranger and today he is a friend we sat next to in church.
Yesterday he was a stranger and today he is a friend we sat next to in church. Here is Lincoln and his cowboy friend, Jason Taylor, preacher of Bar None Cowboy Church in between Henderson and Tatum.
When we went to bed I had no idea when I woke up this post would be shared by so many. I also had no idea God’s plan for us was to drive 45 minutes to his church to be blessed by Jason, his message and his sweet congregation. So lucky that God made sure our paths crossed last night.
Robinson also shared her advice for other parents with children who have similar challenges as Lincoln. They include early intervention and being involved in the therapy process in such a way that the tasks can be repeated with the child throughout the week, in-between appointments.
As for her thoughts on this story going viral? “The thing that has touched me so much is the outpouring of love and support from all over the country! We are humbled that God is using our story to touch others!”
