(November 3, 2020) Erica Grace, ex-missionary to South America, reminds us of a great truth!
What comfort to know that only under his wings we are always safe. Such on that day when we were nearly halfway between two cities in Bolivia, Sucre and Cochabamba, and our worst nightmare came true.
Winding our way around the high Andes Mountains, on very narrow roads, we came face to face with a huge lumber truck, full beyond capacity. It was coming down the same narrow road at full speed!
It was as if Psalm 73:19 – ‘In the blink of an eye, disaster! A blind curve in the dark, and – nightmare!’ – had become a reality!

At that moment all we managed to utter was ‘Jesus’ – reverently, prayerfully and calling for his help!(more…)
