So yesterday was the planned prayer day.
We decided to go for a drive up the mountains. Find somewhere to park with a nice view. Have a chat, pray for a while. And just listen. Seeking wisdom, seeking a view of the future and God’s grace.
So off we went. Found a beautiful little spot by a river and a bridge that we’ve been to many times.
As we’re sitting there I heard this noise comiing towards us, I opened my eyes and there was a car coming towards the bridge which was about 100 yards away from us. Can’t believe how close we were to danger!
The car was travelling at an unbelievable speed. It skidded around the bend hit a huge boulder which went crashing into the river. The car hit the bridge went up in the air flipped over a couple of times and landed cross ways on the bridge.
My prayers went from O Lord what should I do to, Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood what will I do.
So I jumped out of the car, ran towards the bridge. One of the guys got out of the car and shouted for an ambulance.
I rang 999 and like a bumbling idiot tried to describe exactly WHERE up the mountains we were. Other cars arrived and couldn’t cross the bridge.
The Emergency Services (ES) guy on the phone asked me to go to the car and find out how many, how bad etc. I was terrified.
The guy who had called for the ambulance was obviously in a bad way so for some stupid reason i handed him my phone to talk to ES. The guys looked and sounded like they were drunk. And suddenly the other guy noticed me. He was not happy that I had been on the phone. He ‘warned’ me not to call the police. Suddenly I was in danger again. There were lots of people around but this guy was aggressive and wanted to make sure I didn’t call the fuzz!!!!
A truck pulled up and tried to get me and guy #2 to move so they can move the car. Guy #1 was rummaging in the car for stuff, still on my phone.
EVERYONE WAS ON THE PHONE ACTUALLY!!!!
So I got my phone thrown at me and got moved out of the way and in about 30 seconds the car was moved, the two guys jumped in the back of the truck and sped away.
I was actually shocked that I still had my phone and my life!!!!
We were still there when the police arrived, so I’m ‘helping them with their enquiries’ but I doubt I’ll hear from them again.
It took me a few hours to really calm down and remember why I was there in the first place.
So all in all, quite an adventure!
I thank God that He kept me safe.
And now an answer to my original question would be great 🙂
