A woman delivering medicines stopped to pray for a little boy who has a high risk for COVID-19 infection. This moment quickly restored people's faith in humanity.


A doorbell camera captured the delivery worker praying outside the boy's home. A video of the heartwarming moment has been shared on Twitter.

The incident that touched many hearts happened in Nampa, Idaho. It happened shortly after the delivery worker dropped off medicines at one of the houses.


The delivery worker, identified by Today as Monica Salinas, brought the medicines to the Pearson couple. They have an 8-month-old child who has a heart condition.


Lucas, the little child, also has difficulty eating. The family's doctor said Lucas is susceptible to COVID-19.

If the boy contracts the virus, he could go into respiratory distress. Lucas also has a congenital vascular anomaly, as reported by PEOPLE.


With his pre-existing condition, COVID-19 could be fatal for the child. This situation broke Monica's heart.

"That's the kind of stuff that makes my heart cry and I felt the need to pray," Monica said, as reported by Inside Edition.


Raquel was deeply moved by the delivery driver's kindness.


The compassionate Amazon delivery driver paused for a short prayer. Raquel Pearson, the child's mother, didn't notice the prayer at first, as reported by People.

She only realized Monica offered a prayer when she made the sign of the cross. Raquel was deeply moved by the delivery driver's kindness.

Prior to this, Monica had read a "thank you" note from Raquel and her husband Derek, as reported by Inside Edition. The couple had posted it on their door.


The note reads: "We have an infant with medical needs and online deliveries are essential to his health. You are helping our son alive and well."

Monica said it was not the first time she read a note thanking her from house owners. Delivery workers have been receiving extra appreciation for continuing to serve amid the pandemic.

But Monica said the note from the Pearsons particularly moved her. She prayed for protection for the family, especially the little boy.


With the world gripped by a pandemic, acts of kindness have become commonplace. In Maryland, two teens went out of their way to help the elderly.

The teens knew the high risk faced by seniors. To help in their own way, they volunteered to deliver food to seniors without social contact.
