In March 2016, Cesia Abigail was having another business day at her café in Minneapolis, Minnesota, when she noticed a homeless man wandering into her store, the guy came to her asking for some change.
“Why don’t you have a job?” Cesia replied. “You know nothing is given to me for free, right?”
The homeless man whose name’s Marcus, began to explain to Cesia that he would love to get a job and work to have a better life, but his background of felonies made it very hard to convince employers to hire him.
To survive, Macus hadn’t any solution but steal again
But instead of turning Marcus away, Cesia decided to do something so incredible that her story went massively viral…

Cesia Abigail is the twenty-something owner of Abi’s Cafe in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Cesia had recently been struggling to keep her El Salvadorean restaurant afloat.
In March 2016, a homeless man named Marcus walked inside Abi’s Cafe and asked Cesia for money. She felt an instant connection with the man who lived on the streets.
Despite hitting a rough patch in her business, the soft-hearted Abigail decided to offer the man a job washing dishes for the day.
“You want a job? Then I have one for you,” Abigail told him.
With a big grin, the man gladly accepted the woman’s offer: “I will do anything for food.”
“A lot of people are saying I’ve been a blessing for him, but at that point I was the one who needed a blessing,” Abigail told CBS News.
“So now for almost 2 weeks he been on time for his two hour shift… helping take trash, washing dishes, etc.
Once I pay him, guess what he does? He buys food from my restaurant (HE DECIDES TO PAY) because it makes him feel good!”
With a newfound sense of dignity and self-respect, Marcus was a changed man. One day, Cesia saw him wrapping up half of his sandwich and giving it to a homeless woman.
“Do something nice for someone today and don’t judge them just because they out there asking for money for we don’t know their situation… some deserve another shot,” Cesia writes on Facebook.
“God gave me this blessing so why can’t I bless others?”
