This is a mothers worst nightmare to wake up and read. I know for a fact Elder Ence and companion were being watched over. But I just love the ending result.
So the biggest Miracle ever happened this week. My comp (Elder Lynn) and Elder Stubbs are the Zone leaders of our zone and they had a zone meeting in Matola on Friday, so Elder Heald and I were on a split all day that day. I was super pumped because Elder Heald is like one of my best friends out here. So that night while we were out contacting we were on this little side road in Heald's area that connects to the big main road that is asphalt. So we were nearing the end of this little dirt road and there was this dude on the right side of the road by this Barbed-wire fence just standing there eating peanuts. Heald and I went up to him and started talking with him.... just the usual contact. He was an older gentleman, and was actually pretty weird he kept saying the same things over and over. So we were nearing the end of our conversation, just about to get his number, when all of the sudden he like grabbed Elder Heald and tried to pull him to the other side of him saying "Look out". All of the sudden I just get smashed by something and I was flying through the air. While in mid air, I had the opportunity to glance over my left shoulder to see Elder Heald landing on the ground, and this white truck about to land right on top of him...and on me. So as soon as I hit the ground I just started rolling as hard and fast as I could to the right hoping that I would not get landed on. Fortunately I was safe. I quickly looked over to see if my temporary companion was dead or not. Elder Heald was laying there in a big pill of bricks...just inches in front of the truck. We both got up, covered in mud ( cause it has been raining the past few days on and off) and started brushing off our pants and shirts, wondering what the heck just went down. Instantly, like 20 or 30 people were surrounding us and just going off on the driver and the lady that was in the passenger seat next to him. They were all shouting in Dialect and it was pretty dang intense. Then the dude we were talking to just like appeared outta nowhere and was asking us if we were ok. I guess he was able to dodge the truck and was only nicked on the ankle and it was bleeding a little, but not too bad. So while all this chaos was happening, Elder Heald, this guy, and I just like climbed up out of the yard that we got hit into (because it was like a foot or 2 lower than the road) and noticed that we were actually launched a good 10 or so feet, haha. While climbing out, we saw the Barbed-wire fence that we had sailed through. I have no idea how we didn't get tangled up in the fence....or how were didn't get hurt at all. I know for a fact that the Lord protects his missionaries, that's for sure. The good new is that we walked with this guy around the corner and finished contacting him and got his phone number:D Success!!!!!
What the heck!?!?
