LONGVIEW, Texas — Ashlie Ponder is a Longview native who spends most of her time sharing her love for God through her services at the Greggton United Methodist Church.
Just before 8 a.m. on July 1st, she was going down Hawkins Parkway when her car was hit and flipped over. In that moment, she felt everything she’s worked for slip from her fingers. But a good Samaritan stopped and was by her side until the ambulance got there.
"So I'm panicking and I'm stuck. And I'm trapped. And within like, five seconds, this lady just walks over. And she gets down on her knees. And she was talking to me and she kept telling me to make eye contact with her," Ponder said.
For her, the company and the compassion were God sent. Ponder said the kindness she was shown from a stranger has inspired her to give to those around her.
After posting her story on Facebook, she still hasn't had any luck.
Ponder just wants to meet her and thank the stranger who showed her kindness when she need it the most.
