A YouTube vlogger pranked a street vendor in the Philippines by disguising himself as a beggar. He asked for some food from the vendor, but he did not expect to receive it physically and spiritually.
Prank with a heart
Sam was originally from Syria and now has been living in the Philippines for 15 years. He created a Youtube channel to upload his videos of fun and good cause.
He said, “Although prank videos are funny, I have decided that I should do more than just make you laugh.”
So, he made video content of pretending to be a beggar to ask for free food from vendors. But, he would later reveal himself and give away financial gifts or in kind.
However, one street vendor stood out from all he approached. Bebot did not just give him food for his stomach but even food for his soul.

The video first showed Sam appealing to Bebot for free drinks. He said, “I don’t have money. Maybe, you can give me one? I didn’t drink for a long time.”
Bebot immediately answered, “Yes, yes. No problem. Don’t worry, sir.”
Sam then commended the vendor’s good gesture. To this, Bebot replied, “What did Jesus say?”
“Jesus said, ‘Feed the hungry. Give drink to the thirsty.'”
He added, “The Bible teaches us not to belittle anyone, whether you are rich or poor. The Bible said if the person is thirsty, give them a drink and feed those who are hungry. Everyone deserves to be respected, even the little children.”
When Sam finally showed his true intentions and blessed Bebot. “Because you are very kind,” Sam said.
The kind man teared up and humbly said, I am only obeying the Lord.”
The video went viral for Bebot’s generosity and his action in following Jesus.
Isaiah 58:10 says, “Feed the hungry and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon.”
