A school bus bully in Texas apologized for his behavior after a pastor’s son and daughter gave him a Bible to read. 


Christian Today reports the bully was harassing eight-year-old Phoenix Walywyn and seven-year-old Kingston Walywyn, the children of Pastor Vaughaligan Walywyn of CT Legacy Church. 


The children told their parents that the bully called them names and taunted them, so the parents a different seating arrangement on the bus. When that did not work, Pastor Walywyn prayed for a solution. 


“So, I prayed about it and God said, 'You know what? Let's get this kid a Bible. Tell him Jesus loves him and invite him to church and see what happens,’” Walywyn said. 


The children gave the bully a Bible and said he responded with an apology two minutes later. The harassment has not been a problem since. 


Phoenix Walywyn said, "I don't know, maybe [the bully] started to read the Bible at his house and found the Scripture about it.”
