IJReview reached out to Robinson, who revealed that the story didn’t end there. People recognized the man in the picture and immediately reached out to Charity. It turns out this stranger was a local preacher. That same Sunday Charity went to the Church that Pastor Jason Taylor attended.

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.

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.

This story absolutely warmed our hearts! Charity is overwhelmed by having her story go viral. She adds, “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!”
