SAVED FROM UNDER A CONCRETE
in the name of the Lord Jesus I bear testimony. I would like to testify how my only
granddaughter was saved from an accident through the grace of God. This incident happened last year on May 13th,
when my granddaughter, Yong Xing Ho, and my other grandchild were both in the
same elementary one class. On that
day, their parents were in Kao Xiung and the two
children were playing outside their home.
At about 3:30PM, I heard my other grandchild shouting, "Yong Xing
has fallen!" Immediately, I ran out and was met by two of my neighbors who
told me, "We could not find any workers to help in the rescue!" It so
happened that both the front and side of my house were under construction,
where big buildings were being constructed. Thus it posed a dangerous place.
One of the
ladies then went off to look for her husband. At that time, I began to panic and
proceeded to the construction site and shouted for Yong Xing. "I'm here!" A voice came out
from under a concrete slab which was placed five feet above a wall. The two children were walking above the
concrete when they suddenly lost their balance and fell. Yong Xing, then found herself pressed
under a concrete and she exclaimed, "Hallelujah!" and tried to lift
the concrete up. But she could not
move it and felt a sharp pain around her waist. I saw that there were pieces of broken
glass and concrete on the ground and I heard a voice saying that Yong Xing
might turn into a handicap.
this point, I could only pray to God asking Him to save my only granddaughter
and that only He can save my granddaughter. At that instant, I could hear the
footsteps of Mrs. Lee's husband who managed to lift up the concrete with his
strong hands. My granddaughter finally
was pulled out from the concrete.
Except for a few bruises on her face, she looked fine. Thank God! His powerful hands held onto the
concrete. Not long after, the
concrete slipped from Mr. Lee's hands and it fell with a loud thud. I brought Yong Xing home and we prayed
together. She soon went straight to
bed without uttering, a word. After
prayer, I was afraid that she might have suffered internal injuries and so I
brought her to a hospital in Tai Nan.
From the medical examination, no serious repercussion was discovered but
she had to stay in the hospital for observation. After I had briefed the doctor on the
whole incident, the doctor placed her in critical condition for further
examination. She was given the
oxygen mask and intravenous fluid.
At that time, the child felt drowsy and fell asleep. She soon coughed up
blood and there were bruises on the left side of her face.
second day, the child was awakening.
When asked if she felt any pain, she answered none. During the accident, she just felt that
her face was crooked but she felt no fear at all. Thank God! This is certainly the guidance of
God. After six days of stay in the
hospital, except for the swelling in her brain, all her other bruises had fully
disappeared. Later, it was
discovered that the blood she coughed out was not due to internal injury, but
was instead from the bruises. I
thought that everything had gone well and decided that Yong Xing could leave
the hospital. But the doctor
insisted that she remain in the hospital since the swelling in her brain was
still present. Should the swelling
not disappear, she would have to undergo an operation which would expose her to
the risk of infection.
despite the fact that after a few days the swelling did not diminish, we still
requested the doctor's permission to discharge her. We wanted to rely solely on Jesus. We then brought her back to Kao Xiung along with her medication. That night, the local Shi Tian church helped us to pray. We spent Sabbath, the next day, in
church praying the whole day without Yong Xing taking any medication at
all. Amazingly, the swelling on her
brain started to diminish. By the
morrow, the swelling was only the size of a small coin. From here, we can certainly see that
Sabbath day is a day where we can receive blessings. A week later, upon returning to Tai-Nan,
we were told by the doctor that Yong Xing had fully recovered. She also did not have to undergo any
Lord for His wonderful and amazing grace.
No other cure can be as quick as the Lord's. We also thank the Tai-Nan, Kai-Yuan and
Shi-Juan church members for their love in their unceasing prayers and also for
their constant visits. Their
continuous prayers were finally heard by God who made a little sheep well. This also glorifies God's name and it
also reveals the mighty works of God to the Gentiles. Some people even commended that,
"Had we not seen it with our own eyes, we would not have believed that
your granddaughter was one pressed by a concrete. Ordinarily, even if she had not died,
she would have suffered a major handicap.
Perhaps this is due to your sincere worship of your God so much so that
Jesus Christ has protected your granddaughter". This is just as Psalms 34:7 says,
"The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him, and rescues
them." May all the glory be
given to God! Amen.
