I am a 32 year old man born and raised in Prescott, Arizona. I became a Christian during 2004 and was baptized on June 12, 2005. In previous years I was reluctant to listen to anything from the bible. I went to church only when I felt shamed into it. In December of 2003 I was hit by a drunk driver while heading to work. I spent nearly 2 months in a coma with dreams in which I was paralyzed and lonely without friends or family in most. I woke from the coma having lost all of my muscle tone such that I was too weak to lift my arms or legs or anything, or to push the call button for the nurse even if my hand was placed on the button. I could not stand, walk or talk, and could only nod slightly. I was shown pictures of my accident, and over the next several weeks in the hospital I began to wonder why I had lived. I think in my heart I knew I had been wrong all the years I refused to let God into my life. One day, the hospital chaplain came into the room and asked if he could pray with me. At that point my heart was softened and I cried and we prayed. Often people are sad for me having been in such an accident. I refuse to regret it! It was the most difficult, but awesome trial God has ever put me through. I learned of God's mercy, and the amazing healing abilities which were built into our bodies when we were created. Today, nearly 2 years after, I suffer some effects of that accident. I am active in church and going through a discipleship program. I play handbells one evening a week and am happier than I have ever been in my life. Praise God for the peace he can give even during your hardest trials!
