True Story!!

Hi to All

The 10 wheel truck driver seen the little girl look toward him
and stop at the edge of the road. She had a water bucket she was
carrying on her shoulder. He continued toward her but as he got just
about to her she started to run forward in front of his truck. There
was no way for him to stop in time. He looked in his mirror as he went
past and seen her fly backwards down the steep embankment. He slammed
his brakes to a stop and ran back to where she was. At that moment she
was crawling up out of the ditch and apparently unharmed. He was happy
and angry at her at the same time. He asked her what did she think she
was doing and hit her hard on the shoulder. It seemed she was not
paying attention to him. Her eyes were searching across the road in
the direction she was going. She started to cry and walk away. He went
back to his truck and left. Stopping in the village to tell the story
to others.
The little girl was Phimpha. Her mother had died just a few weeks
before in the hospital. Phimpha was 8or 9 years old. She never
understood completely that her mother was dead. Even though she seen
her mother in the coffin at the memorial service. She always hoped she
would come home. She was now living with an Aunt and after school it
was Phimpha’s job to fill the water jug from the canal. She filled her
buckets and seen the truck approaching and stopped at the edge of the
road and waited for it to pass. As she waited she looked across the
street and there was her mother. She was standing there and heard her
mother calling and motioning for her to come. She said come,come, come
here.  Phimpha was so excited to see her mother she started to run
forward. Oblivious to the approaching truck. As she stepped out onto
the road she felt a hand grab her by the shoulder and pull her
backwards with such force that she toppled backwards into the ditch.
There was no one behind her. She crawled up out of the ditch and was
not paying much attention to the driver. She was frantically looking
across the road for mom. Mom had vanished.
The amazing thing to me is not that God sent an angel to save her
from certain death. The amazing thing to me is that satan has the
power to make her mothers spirit appear or some other spirit appear,
to lure a child to their death. How many times has he used that or a
similar trick to lure children to the road or into a swiming pool
or…. I think of it because just 2 weeks ago a little girl was
waiting along the road with kids on both sides and as I approached she
darted out alone, at a full run across the road. She was maybe 4 or 5
years old. I locked the brakes and missed her by inches, as I seen her
in my mirror running back home. I was shaking for a long time and
Thanked God over and over. I don’t know how she could have stopped and
turned back so quick.I believe God was their for her too.
We must never underestimate the power of evil and how much satan
wants to destroy us. As Pastor Mike always says satan’s biggest lie is
, “I do not exist.” He is alive and well on his kingdom. The earth is
his kingdom, and we must always be on the look out for his tricks. If
this were Gods world there would be no pain or suffering.
Phimpha asked for Prayer for Timothy House and the kids. Satan
has been working hard to try to close us. It will not happen as long
as we are in His will and we know we are. Pray for safety for the kids
and all that work and live at Timothy House.

From our Hearts
Rodney and Phimpha
