God is so amazing!
Suddenly, I heard a loud ‘POP’ and was roused out of a
light sleep. I heard screaming and all I saw was the van careening for a ditch.
was so strange, but the thoughts of rolling in the van flooded my mind, like
they were memories from a long time ago and I was just recalling them. I was
pinned on my right side, the van crushing my left hip. I tried to squirm to get
free but there was no hope, I wasn’t budging. I just started yelling, ‘HELP!’
apparently Melissa actually saw me get thrown out of the window. Everyone piled out of the van to help lift
the van and pull me out. I still do not understand how I got out of the van.
The window was not very large and there was a solid metal bar cutting across
the center of it, making it impossible to fit out of, but apparently I did. Anyway I flew out of the vehicle and judging
from my swollen lower back, I must have hit the ground flat on my back and slid
particular. Dr. Lee is a great man that took very good care of me. He told me
that I should not be alive and that he sees accidents all the time that are
just like this and the victims are never in good shape.
most dead serious face, ‘The Lord has
protected you and your friends tonight. There is no way that all of you were so
unharmed by such a serious accident.’
walked in to see how I was holding up. I stood up and told him I felt really
good. He gave me that blank stare again. He was dumbfounded. He witnessed a
miracle as I began to walk towards him.
He will continue to receive all that He is due for what He did. I also pray
that this story about 8 missionaries in Africa divinely surviving a bad
accident will inspire others. I pray that believers in God will be spurred on
to greater heights and deeper depths with the Father. I pray that those who do
not believe in God or know Jesus will simply consider that God had a hand in
this. I do not want anyone to tell me that I am lucky. That’s foolish talk. I
am blessed. God showed up in a huge way and there is no other explanation.
Tommy, I praise God tonight that you and your team were protected and blessed by God from such a horrible accident! You see my friend, what you and your team are doing right now is Kingdom work and the Creator of the universe isn’t quite finished with you and your ministry here on planet earth! I pray that you and your team have a Happy Thanksgiving! We have a daughter, Marlena, who is presently serving in Malaysia and has never been away from home for Thanksgiving…she is exactly where she needs to be at this moment in time. Tommy, thank you and your team for your service/ministry…
How Great Is Our God!
Great is the LORD, Almighy whom we serve! He’s omnipresent! He’s presence goes ahead and covers HIS children who faithfully obeyed HIM and follow HIM wholeheartidly.
See, how the LORD showed HIS power! GOD’s children are under HIS protection everytime, everywhere!
As we keep on following JESUS,we are under HIS care…and nothing to fear!
Praise GOD for your life Tommy and the company.HE’d never brought you in a terrifying story, but indeed HE is making a glorifying story.HE’s making your testimony more stronger and effective.Glory to JESUS!
Praise God! Hallelujah!
Oh my goodness. God is amazing.
GOD IS NOT REAL.
What an amazing testimony!Just like the one of my 11 year old granddaughter who was just hit by a car and the Lord spared her life.Also, Jim, may God have mercy on you to learn for yourself that He certainly is real before you discover the truth too late to profit from it,
Awesome story! God is so amazing. I believe that sometimes we go through things just so God can show others just how powerful he really is. I am so happy that everyone was ok and has recovered.
Thank you for sharing Seth.
