It was exactly one year today when God saved the life of our son, David! Those who know us will recall the events surrounding last Christmas. What started as a family holiday in sunny South Africa quickly turned into a nightmare.
Join me for a moment as we praise God for His miraculous intervention in the Blaak family! These are the events as they happened…
The ceiling stared back at me in silent horror. Afraid to sleep, afraid to speak, barely able to breathe.
“Why doesn’t the phone ring? What is taking so long?”
It was a parent’s worst nightmare. Unexplainable illness, uncontrollable vomiting, unconscious child. As the seconds painfully tick by, we lay there, fully clothed, bags packed, ready to jump into the car as soon as the insurance company says “go.” 10pm… 11pm… 12am… 1am… 2am… It was enough to drive anyone stark raving mad.
“Oh God, help! Save our boy! Please, Jesus! Don’t let him die.”
