I am a huge Buffalo Bills fan, and it hurt when Tre Boston went to Los Angeles to play for the Chargers, but I am a bigger fan of God.
This story helped easy the pain of Boston going to the Chargers.
“I pump my gas. After I pump my gas, I put my wallet in my car,” Boston recalled, via Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com. “After I put my wallet in my car, there’s a guy with three kids and he asked me for a little bit of change, or if I had a dollar or two. I gave him a $20.
“So he tells me thank you so much, and that God put me in his life for a reason. And in my mind I’m saying you’re here for a reason, too. So in my mind I’m saying should I ask him, ‘L.A. or Buffalo.’ And before I could ask him, my man told me, ‘Thank you so much. There aren’t too many people like you in this world, God’s children. My name’s Mike Daniels, but people call me L.A.’”
Boston said the exchange brought him to tears. And if it wasn’t enough to convince him he belonged with the Chargers, he said he then spotted a “Jesus saves” advertisement on the back of a gas station card. He proceeded to chat with his new friend for a half hour.
“I ended up giving him $100 because I knew he changed my life, just like I knew I changed his life,” Boston said. “Honestly, that’s the reason why I’m here. It didn’t matter how much money was given to me. It didn’t matter really who was on the team, it just happened to be a great fit, per Larry Brown Sports.
“God told me to come here, and that’s my testimony. And that’s why I’m here.”
I like the Testimony and the fact that Boston gave God the Glory.
