Dear Harvest Supporter,
I want to depart from my normal statement letter in order to share about God’s Mercy and Grace in my life. By now, you may have read about the horrific accident that my wife Sandra and I were involved in on May 5, 2017. I want to share just a little of how God protected us.
Sandra and I were on our way to Tampa to visit family. I was driving on I-75 traveling at 70 mph when I lost control of the van. I was in the passing lane, drifted to the left, and hit a concrete guardrail. The impact caused the van to flip on its right side. We skidded across two lanes of traffic and came to rest on the grass easement on the right side of the highway. Within minutes, there were people who came to our rescue.
As only God can do, both Sandra and I were conscious and able to talk to the people who kept asking us if we were alright. I remember the first person to come to the front windshield of the van identified herself as a Trauma ER Nurse (imagine that) that just happened to be traveling two cars behind us. EMT arrived within a few minutes and took us out of the vehicle. After being secured in stretchers and just before being put into the ambulance the ER Nurse came over to us and asked for our names. Then she said, “I’ll be praying for you and your wife as I travel today”. Praise the Lord.
We were taken to the hospital and given every kind of test you can think of, x-rays, CT scans, MRI’s, blood tests, etc. The results of the test showed that Sandra sustained worse injuries than I did. She has a fractured lumbar, severely bruised right hip, severe bruising across her tummy and upper chest (from the airbag). She is having difficulty walking and doing normal activities but Praise the Lord nothing serious. My injuries are bruising from the seatbelt and the airbag. We are both home and on the mend. Thank you Jesus.
One or both of us should have lost our lives as a result of this accident. One or both of us should have had some serious injuries. Neither one of us should have been released from the hospital on the same day of the accident. You cannot hit ANYTHING going 70 mph and walk away EXCEPT BY THE GRACE AND MERCY OF GOD. Sorry for going on but there is no doubt in my mind that God sent a host of Angels to protect Sandra and me. Thank you Jesus.
There are many other things that happened that can only be explained by God’s Grace. You can read the entire story on the home page by clicking the link under the heading "Miracles."
In closing, I want to let you know that all our missionaries are doing well. Each of them have emailed me to let me know that they are praying for Sandra and are praising God that He spared our lives. What an unbelievable 5 days it has been. Please pray for me as I deal with financial repercussion from this adventure. I am so grateful to the Lord that He is involved with what we are going through.
God bless you,
Danny Thomas, Director
