LOSING HIS LEG, BUT NOT HIS FAITH

Mike Romero is an amazing story.

He is one of our new volunteers in the Kids Ministry of Victory Fort.

He lost his leg after being run over by a bus and yet now is back serving in Kids Ministry.

Read his story below. It will amaze you.

 

God has blessed me with a very supportive family – my Victory Kids Church family. I got into an accident last April 5 when I was going home; I fell from the bus I was on while trying to run after the person/s who snatched my wallet. Sadly, I lost my right leg in the process and was in a critical condition in the ICU for a week.

My Kids Church family was there the whole time. Pastor Mark Tusoy and most of my team took time from the start to visit me in the ICU and prayed for me. I didn’t expect that a lot of people from KC would be there because I was a new volunteer. As it was unexpected, I was really happy that they visited (much to the dismay of the ICU staff as they had to monitor if more people snuck in :p). Looking back at it now, it was probably a nudge from God to push myself to recover faster.

Even in Facebook, which I just found out when I got discharged from the hospital, they offered their prayers of healing and provision. They even went to my house (after probably what was a week’s worth of discussions on our team’s FB wall :p)to ensure that I was well and bouncing back properly. I remember they brought a ton of food and even planned games.

Although those were very trying times for me, the love and support of my Kids Church family has shown God’s love for me. Being new to walking the path to God, their support has strengthened my faith in Him and to trust in what He has planned for me.
