Photo of Dutch Bros. workers praying with customer goes viral

Viral photo shows baristas praying with woman

VANCOUVER, Wash. -- A Facebook post showing workers at a Vancouver coffee stand consoling and praying with a customer has been making the rounds on social media.

Barbara Danner said in the post that she was at the drive-thru of the Dutch Bros. on 138th Avenue when she caught the emotional moment on camera Friday afternoon.

Danner said the workers were praying with a woman who lost her husband the night before.

“When the DB guys & gals noticed she was falling apart, they stopped everything and prayed with her for several minutes, invited her to come back for prayer and support, as well as anything else that she might need," Danner said in the post.

Pierce Dunn, who was one of the workers praying in the photo, said they were trying to empathize with the grieving woman.

"She was showing raw emotion towards us so we gave it right back to her," Dunn said.

"She just shook all of our hands and wiped her face and said 'thank you,'" said Evan Freeman, who also took part in the prayer. "And I think it was a genuine thank you that someone took the time and moment to say 'I'm sorry.'"

The post, as of Tuesday, had been shared more than 75,000 times and received more than 9,000 comments, which included customers sharing their positive experiences with the coffee chain.
