I was born and raised in Haiti. This is not really my own story but it worth sharing. About month after Haiti's Earthquake, I called my childhood classmate, Claudie to inquire if she had lost anyone during the earthquake. She replied negatively and told me that God miraculously spared her son during the earthquake.
Claudie has been a Christian since I met her for the first time. When I called her after the earthquake, she told that for some reasons, her church felt the need to pray for the congregation in a special way just weeks before the earthquake.
Claudie lives in Florida. She has several children of which 3 still lived in Haiti. Right after the earthquake, Claudie heard from her two daughters from Haiti but they did not know about her son whereabouts. A few days passes and she did not know what to think. She was grateful that God spared the life of her two daughters and she said to God, that she would be happy if her son was alive, but she did not want to ask for too much since she knows of people who lost their entire family during the earthquake. About one week after the earthquake, the son called and informed my friend that he was alive; and he was finally able to get out of the rambles. Claudie cried and laugh and the family rejoiced and gave thanks to God.
The son explained to Claudie that on the day of the earthquake, he was sleeping but heard someone calling him from the outside. Since he was unable to see the caller, he got outside of the house and did not see anyone. While he was still looking for the caller, he suddenly saw his house crumbling to the ground and he was miraculously spared since he was outside.
The explanation is that God sent an angel to call the son right in time to spare his life.
Since my friend told me the story, I have been thinking about sharing it we Guideposts.
