    How grateful we are for those prayers! I can’t wait to see the video in Heaven of what really happened. Four Christians in a boat…Satan tried to take them out…and God won. But, what was really happening behind the scenes? One day, we’ll know…
    Thanks, dear!

    I remember that early morning when my wife got a call from Jean, about this incident. As my wife and I begin to pray, Matthew 8:24 came to mind “and there arose a great storm in the sea”, followed by Matthew 8:26 ” Then He arose, and rebuked the wind and the sea; and it became perfectly calm”. Anytime the storms of life begin to buffet us, He also rises in our behalf to calm the storm, with an added promise; “I will never leave you nor will I ever forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5).

      Such wonderful promises! Jack was pastor at the time of this incident. He had preached on Matt 8:26 just the week before and he, Linda and my husband rebuked our storm that day, as well. Unfortunately, something really nasty was afoot and it took a lot of spiritual muscle from many — you and Janet included — to help us escape this ambush at sea. We thank you so much!!

    Amazing story showing God answering prayers miraculously. It is also a good reminder that no matter how desperate the situation looks, no matter how hopeless it looks, God can intervene.

    I remember praying for you all as well.

      Mischelle, thank you for those prayers!!! You are part of this story — HIS story! God allows these very trials and tribulations where we get to experience his faithfulness so that we can experience Him personally and exclaim with conviction: “He is my rock, my fortress and my refuge…my God in whom I trust!”

      It brought tears as I wrote it! God is so merciful! And I’m sorry we never got to enjoy the scenery and animal life on those beautiful islands!

      Such a frightening experience interrupted by divine intervention…an answer to prayers like yours, no doubt! One day, we will get to pull back the curtain and see behind the scenes. Bless you both!
