“Having been through quite a few near-death situations, this horrific car accident has to rank as the closest! To say my survival is a miracle will be putting it mildly. It is God’s show of grace and mercy! He put me to sleep through it all so there were no maneuvers, no James Bond stunts.. nothing! I literally slept and woke up in the hospital.
“I want to sincerely thank you for your prayers, and concern. I also want to apologize for being unavailable; the doctor advised that i receive/make fewer visits and calls.
“The past 8days have seen me go from one crisis to another owing to the injuries (both internal and external) that I sustained, but I offer all these painful moments to God as so many acts of love. By his Grace, I am out of the critical phase.
“As i battle towards full recovery, i hope to be on my feet soon by the grace of God. I ask you to please continue to pray for me. It is truly heartfelt.
“May love and healing continually #findyou as it has found me. Amen.”
