It was just another normal patrol until Deputy Matt Holman of the Greenville County Sheriff’s office shined his light down a street and saw a homeless man walking down it.
Holman soon learned that the man’s name was Robert Morris and life had been really rough for Morris, lately.
The two walked together to a nearby church. On the way Morris explained that his tent had washed away in a recent flood. Before that he lost his family and picked up a nasty drugs and alcohol addiction. As if that wasn’t bad enough, due to his crippling addiction he ruined the relationships with his brother and sister.
Being a man of faith, Holman began to search through trunk for the one cure for this problem, the word of God.
But the trunk didn’t have a Bible, so Morris did something even more selfless — he gave Morris his personal Bible that he kept on him at all times.The Bible contained Holman’s scribbled notes and highlighted scriptures from his years of use.
The Bible was very dear to Holman, but he knew that it was time to give it to someone who was more in need than himself.
If that wasn’t incredible enough, Officer Holman then noticed that the homeless man was starving and offered him a few dollars. Morris politely refused, but Officer Holman wasn’t about to take no for an answer. “Go sit on the steps and I’ll be right back,” said Officer Holman. In the blink of an eye Holman had returned with a plate full of hot food, which Robert ate.
This would already be a remarkable tale, however six months later Office Holman received a voicemail from a strange number.Holman listened to it and heard Robert Morris for the first time in six months. What Morris says will warm your heart and put a big smile on your face! The video below contains the actual 911 recording from Robert Morris where he details how Officer Holman had changed his life with his actions that fateful night.
Unfortunately on March 18, 2015 Robert Morris passed away unexpectedly, but because of that fateful night where he met the kindhearted officer, his life was forever changed.
