An unknown man stepped in to help an elderly woman to buy the medicine that she couldn’t afford. A bystander saw the entire thing and posted it on social media saying that she saw God that day.
God has been using ordinary people to be His instruments of hope and love to other people. A testimony posted on Facebook on Friday proves that statement true. A bystander who happened to be at the right time and place to witness God’s movement posted the story of how she encountered God while she was at a pharmacy.
Mandy Viray was at a pharmacy waiting for her turn to buy medicine when she overheard the conversation between the pharmacist and an elderly woman.
“Pharmacist: The total is Php 1,100,” Mandy wrote in her Facebook account. “Nanay: (pulled out all her coins). Can I just buy one piece of each medicine on the doctor’s prescription? I only have Php 200 here with me, sorry.”
Suddenly, an unknown man beside the elderly woman spoke. He asked the pharmacist to give all the medicine she needed and he will pay for all of it.
“Miss, I’ll pay for the rest of the bill, give her all the medicine she needed,” the unknown man said to the pharmacist.
The elderly woman was extremely joyful that she kept on thanking the unknown man. However, instead of receiving all the praise, he told the woman that it was God who provided her needs.
“I saw God today”
“Ma’am, that did not come from me, it was God who gave your medicine. Let us thank the Lord for His provision,” he said to the elderly woman.
Overwhelmed by what she witnessed, Mandy decided to post the story on social media. She even emphasized that she saw God that day and it was a precious encounter! Hundreds of thousands of people were blessed by her testimony.
“Today, I saw God. It was a precious encounter,” Mandy wrote.
