POMPANO BEACH, Fla. – A cell phone store manager in South Florida dissuaded an armed man from robbing the store by telling him Jesus wouldn't approve. Instead of panicking when the suspect pulled a weapon, Nayara Goncalves started talking with him. He was jobless, and the 20-year-old Christian offered to connect him with friends who could help him find work.
She said she believed the man when he said he attended church and wasn't a bad person. She told him the answer to his financial problems wasn't in the cash register.
Then, the clerk nudged him with a little sin of her own. She said the store would hold her responsible for any cash he stole.
Goncalves said, "I just wanted to remind him that he knew better."
