Miracle Story of God’s Saving Grace
As many of you know, White Horse Media has expanded our outreach internationally. Tim Saxton recently returned from overseas and shared this stirring story:
Recently, our team was traveling back from holding a series of training seminars for pastors, church administrators and laymen. The Holy Spirit richly blessed those meetings and it was time to return to the U.S. As we were traveling to the airport and zipping along the highway at a good rate of speed, suddenly we saw a small girl dart across the highway directly in front of our large SUV. Our driver slammed on his brakes and tried to swerve, but it was one of those horrible situations in which no matter which way he swerved the girl managed to stay right in front of us.
The impact was surreal and sickening! It seemed like there were multiple “bumps” or “thuds” as the vehicle and little child’s body collided. As the vehicle ground to a stop, the driver and a church official jumped out. Pastor Ron and I, who were in the back seat, immediately started praying. Soon the bloody body of this unfortunate little girl was carried into our vehicle along with her frantic mother. There was no time to wait for an ambulance. We sped off for the nearest medical center, which happened to be a rural government clinic about 10 minutes away.
Arriving at the clinic the girl was brought inside. The suspense was agonizing. The overwhelming question was, Why, oh why, had this tragedy been allowed to happen? As our prayers ascended before the Lord, there was nothing to do but wait. Less than one hour later, to our utter amazement, the little girl walked out, bandaged and very sore, but fully alive and walking. In addition, she was being referred to one of the large hospitals in a nearby city for follow up testing. How we praised God for this miracle and answered prayer!
The little girl’s mother was quite old for having such a young child, and her eyes were full of cataracts making it hard for her to see. This may have explained why the child was crossing the highway without being by her mother’s side. We also learned the little girl’s father was dead. It appeared they had been on their way to church that Sunday morning for they had a Bible with them. This family was quite poor, even by the lower living standards of the country in which they lived. This was a poor Christian widow, with limited eyesight, trying to squeeze out a meager living for her young children.
I didn’t learn the girl’s name before leaving, as it had been very difficult to communicate with her mother, and only the driver of the vehicle could understand her dialect, but I decided to give her the name “Grace,” for it seemed to fit what had just occurred. However, with such a dramatic turn of events, we simply could not walk away from her and her family. Instead, we have decided to help her family by raising funds to pay for her mother to have cataract surgery and for Grace and her siblings to receive the things they need (food and clothes), plus we hope to give them a chance to attend a Christian school.
If you are touched by this story and would like to help turn a bad situation into a good one, you yourself can help Grace’s family by donating for their needs on our White Horse Media website here: https://www.whitehorsemedia.com/credit-card-donation/. Please select “Mission Projects” in the drop down bar. Only funds received over the next seven (7) days will specifically be earmarked for Grace and her family.
Grace did go to that large hospital in the city and has since been released. Tim Saxton plans on visiting her and her family when he returns to India in the near future. We praise God, who is always able to take a terrible situation and change it into something good as we pray, and seek His face. In this situation particularly, we see God’s Saving Grace.
