Ava Faulk says her son saw the unidentified man waiting outside the restaurant and insisted they get him something to eat, she told WAFF.

When the man went inside and sat down, no one came over to wait on him, so Josiah took it upon himself to get the man a menu and ask him what he wanted to eat.

At first, the man just ordered a cheap burger, but when Josiah told him he could have anything he wanted, he piled on the fixings. “Can I have bacon?” Faulk says the man asked. “I told him get as much bacon you want.”

The catch? Josiah asked the man to say a blessing with him before he took his first bite. And so Josiah sang the blessing as loud as he could, attracting the attention of the restaurant’s other 11 customers.

“The man cried. I cried. Everybody cried,” Faulk told the TV station.

She added: “Watching my son touch the 11 people in that Waffle House tonight will be forever one of the greatest accomplishments as a parent I’ll ever get to witness.”
