Jeepney drivers have been stereotyped as aggressive drivers in the streets of Manila. In fact, we often see them drive like crazy, swerve, and drop off passengers anytime, anywhere, they want to. In short, “hari sila ng kalsada.” (King of the road)
Jeepney is Philippines’ ubiquitous symbol of culture and arts.
Frankly, we rarely meet Jeepney drivers who are kind and courteous, even though, most of the Jeepneys’ designs have the Bible verses in it.
Surprisingly enough, a netizen uploaded an amazing video of a Jeepney driver who will definitely change your perception.
The video was uploaded by Djhay Coralde on Facebook. As of this writing, the video has been shared more than 17,000 shares.
As described by Djhay, the Driver was so “active” in asking his passengers about the word of God. I watched it myself and I got surprised with what he said: “ang mga kabataan ngayon ay di na nagbabasa ng bibliya.” (The youngsters nowadays don’t read bible anymore.) Unlike his time, he had to read the Bible diligently.
Therefore, he used his knowledge in preaching Bible by asking trivial questions to his passengers.
Here’s the full caption to the video:
Ibang iba sya sa mga nasakyan ko na jeep, Una nagulat ako kasi sobrang active nya sa jeep ang sabi nya pa ‘ Isang magandang hapon po sa inyong lahat mamaya ko na po kukunin ang inyong bayad ayon sa inyong seat #’ Lahat ng nasa jeep nagtawanan kasi bihira lang naman yung mga ganun na jeep driver, Maya maya, Nagtanong sya sa amin tungkol sa bible, Kapag nasagot daw namin ibabalik nya yung pamasahe ng nakasagot, Akala namin nagloloko lang sya, tapos bigla na syang nagtanong ‘ Sino daw ang asawa ni abraham?’ May nakasagot ng tanong nya, Tapos binalik nya nga talaga yung pamasahe. ???????? Tapos nagtanong pa sya ng 2 beses pero wala ng nakasagot sa tanong nya, Nagbigay pa sya ng mga payo para sa mga kabataan. Nakakaproud si manong, Sana lahat ng nakakasakay sa knya may matutunan sana kayo. ???????????????? Kung hahanapin nyo yung jeep nya ang natandaan ko lang, Yung pangalan sa harap ng jeep ay GEMINI. Goodbless manong and Takecare, Marami pa sana kayong mabahagian ng mga salita ng diyos. ????????????????????????
