Pastor And Wife Receive Unexpected Surprise From Homeless Couple

Krystal Stewart and her husband, Pastor Ronnie Stewart, were finishing up a conversation with each other inside their church in Holiday, Florida. The church's chef unexpectedly interrupted their chat because of a mound of trash bags in the parking lot. When they walked over to inspect the pile of five bags, they found two boys--terrified and naked.

The Christian couple, who have three kids of their own, recognized the abandoned boys when they volunteered at a nearby soup kitchen. They were part of a homeless family, and their mother was hiding around the corner of the building. She was watching to see what the Stewarts would do.

Krystal saw the mother and offered to take the boys home to clean them up and feed them. Krystal said, "They were covered in bug bites, head to toe. They were so filthy, that we actually had to bathe, and drain, and bathe again, two different times."

She went on to say, "The toddler who did have shoes on didn’t have any socks on. When we took his shoes off, the little skin on the top of his feet actually came off." After she cleaned and fed the 2-year-old and 7-month-old boys, she put them to bed. They slept for 10 hours straight, leading her to believe they had never slept in a bed before.

Krystal brought the boys back to their mother the following day.

Later, they were visited by the woman and a social worker. The mother asked the Stewarts if they wouldn't mind caring for the boys until the parents could figure out their circumstances. The couple said yes right away--that was in November. Now, it is five months later, and the Stewarts are finishing up paperwork to adopt the two boys.

When the boys came into their lives was the day Krystal shared, with her husband, the struggle she's endured with her recent hysterectomy and inability to have another baby because of it. Krystal said, "We don’t look at it as we are something special, we know that they are special, and we’re just excited to be part of their journey."
