A Hutchinson cop remembered a woman he arrested some time ago. Upon recognizing her, the kind police officer called her out to the side to bless her with a prayer. The surprised woman was grateful and shared her experience on Facebook.
Impact of Prayer
Misti Doyle posted a picture of her and Police Sgt. Truan, who were holding hands in prayer. She called the captured moment “amazing” and “impactful.”
Misti recalled that Sgt. Truan was one of the police officers who arrested her on September 15, 2019. During that time, she was in deep addiction. But, even though society saw her as an addict, Sgt. Truan did not. He even made sure that Misti was comfortable in the police car.
She said, “He made sure I had plenty of water to drink and spoke to me with respect, kindness, and compassion even though he still had a job to do. And I did get arrested that day.”
Kind Police Officer
The outstanding officer also encouraged Misti when she was so downcast with her failure. She did not forget what he told her. “People make mistakes,” he said. “We’re only human. It’s not the mistakes that we make, [but] it’s what we choose to do after those mistakes that really count.”
The now-Christian woman wanted to inspire others by how Sgt. Truan lived out Christianity.
