Would you go the Distance?
Am I my Brother's Keeper?
The answer lies in our experience with Aaron Bieber last Nov. 6th 2000.
Thank God for saving such a loving Soul.
Guardian Angels sometimes experienced in spirit form or Christians living God's love… both accomplishing miracles sent from God. We have been blessed with one such miracle and nothing will ever convince me of the absence of divine intervention.
Last November 6th during a serious blizzard which kept me snowbound in town Aaron was delivering a semi-load of french fries to Columbus,OH. That day he had taken a wrong turn and stopped in Dayton,OH to inquire about his route. On his way across the lot of a truck stop he stumbled over a stump and bruised his rib and hit his head losing consciousness. At this same moment in time Tamara was on her way home and noticed she was running low on gas. She was about to turn around and go back to her regular gas station, but decided at the last moment to turn into the station where Aaron was laying unconscious. She saw him and called the ambulance, followed him to the hospital, talked to the doctors, and finding out that they had given him an MRI and discovered a brain tumor the size of a large egg, stayed at the hospital from 7a.m. unti1 3 p.m. during the surgery praying for God to spare his life.
Without anyone asking, she contacted Aaron's employer, found a driver to complete his load to Columbus, took his clothes home to wash, took his glasses to be fixed, and took him into their home on his release from the hospital. After few days rest they took him to the airport and put him on the plane for home. She did not know Aaron, and she had never stopped in the gas station before.
The evening of the accident I was staying at a friend's home in Aberdeen and was trying to reach him on his cell phone. Finally a strange person answered the phone, gave me the number of Aaron's broker who gave me the number of the hospital. As soon as I called they requested my permission to operate and the next morning he was in surgery .I could do nothing but pray and I started a prayer chain thru Holy Cross church members, and my friend, Betty, started a prayer chain among her friends. It was a very serious surgery and Aaron came thru it with flying colors. We have much to thank God for sending him an "angel" to watch over him while he was all alone so far from home.
Coincidence? If Aaron had not taken a wrong turn and stopped to ask directions…If he had not tripped over the stump and been incoherent enough for them to give him the MRI test…He could have died from the tumor not knowing it was there. If Tamara had not stopped in a strange gas station and found him…He could have died lying there in the dark. If she had not stayed the distance and put him on the plane for home… he would not have had anywhere to go or the strength to take care of himself Coincidence?
I don't think so.
Yes, we believe that miracles happen today.
Sincerely Your Friends
