PRATTVILLE, AL — Five-year-old Josiah Duncan and his mom, Ava Faulk, were at Waffle House when a homeless man walked in.

“We saw a man who was dirty holding a bag with his bike outside,” Faulk recalled.

Josiah was concerned by the man’s appearance and asked his mom a slew of questions.

“He’s homeless,” the little boy’s mother told him.

Faulk said once the man sat down, no one helped him. So Josiah went over to the man and asked if he needed a menu “because you can’t order without one.”

“He didn’t have any food,” Josiah said.

So he insisted that his mom buy a good meal for the man.

“Can I have bacon?” Faulk remembers him asking, “And I told him get as much bacon you want.”

But before the man could dig in, Josiah stopped him.

“I wanted to say the blessing with him,” Duncan said.

So with 11 other customers watching, Josiah sang the blessing, leaving everyone around in tears.

“You never know who the angel on Earth is, and when the opportunity comes you should never walk away from it,” Faulk said.
