Starbucks Sally


At a corner Starbucks in Arlington, TX we got to meet Starbucks Sally.

Sally went on last year's EthiopiaSmile dental mission trip and is a friend of Team Alexander. We told her who we were, where Meron was from and who we were out there to visit.

She immediately reached across the counter, grabbed our hands and said:

"I'm not supposed to do this here... but let's pray."
And proceeded to bust out the most awesome prayer for us, for LH3 and for Ethiopia.

Uhhh... awesome. I mean - seriously - I basically ordered a grande cup of tears after that cuz she caught me off-guard.

The world needs more Starbucks Sallys.
