Eric Wagner bought the boat called “Amen” six years ago.
He never imagined that the boat will be an actual answer for two Teenagers prayers from Florida.
Last Month, Eric Wagner and his crew were sailing from Delray Beach, Florida to New Jersey. The wind was 15-20kn and the seas were rough but they decided to sail anyway.
They were about 2 miles offshore when Eric thought he heard a desperate scream. Wagner didn’t believe his ears at first, but when they saw an arm waving in the body of water over the swells 200 yards behind them, they started to make a U-turn.
Eric and his team tried everything to save what they saw; and It was a two young couple, they pulled the two teens back to the swim deck.
“Nothing but bathing suits on. Too weak to climb the swim deck ladder we pushed and pulled them aboard. The engines were off so we were at the mercy of the waves; all of us falling left and right dodging the sliding items we failed to secure well. Both were shivering and pale, his lips were white. She was lucid, he seemed to be struggling to answer our questions but coherent.” Eric said in his post from Facebook.
Two Florida teens
The two teens named Tyler Smith and Heather Brown told CNN affiliate, WJAX, that they had been in the water for almost two hours before they were rescued. They had gone swimming at Vilano Beach, near St. Augustine, to celebrate senior skip day and got caught in a current that pulled them farther and farther away from the bay.
Smith and Brown were getting weaker and losing hope, so they started praying and realized how real God really is the moment they saw a boat named “Amen” coming toward them. The young couple was gracious and grateful to Eric’s team and to God.
God is faithful and just, He will never drive away anyone that comes to Him. This testimony reminds us that God is always good. He is alive and always answers our prayers.
