A young man who lost his face in a terrible accident says that what happened was a “gift from God,” and he’s thankful that it led him to have a relationship with Jesus.
23-Year-Old Loses Face From Accident
Dallas Weins was 23 years old when an accident totally changed his life. Whether he regrets it or not, he would testify in an interview with Brigham And Women’s Hospital.
One day, Dallas received an opportunity for a painting job outside of a Baptist Church in Fort Worth, Texas. As he painted the wall, the lift “he was painting from drifted into power lines.” He was electrocuted, and it burned his face.
Three months later, the 23-year-old woke up feeling numb from his neck up. He lost his face because of the accident. One could no longer identify Dallas’ face as he no longer had eyes, nose, and lips. But ironically, he still feels grateful despite what happened to him.
A Gift From God
Dallas testified that if it weren’t for the incident, he wouldn’t have experienced the “brand new life.” Also, he didn’t want to call it an “accident, but rather a gift from God.” The 23-year-old is grateful because he found Jesus amidst the trial and experienced joy like never before. Hence, he concluded that the accident “was worth it.”
Soon, Dallas recovered and began going to church, where he had the accident. He also served the Lord in that church.
Three years later, a great opportunity knocked into his life. He became “one of the first two face-transplant operations performed in the U.S.” After a successful surgery, he could feel his face again. What’s even sweeter, he could already feel the kisses of his little daughter.
Today, Dallas didn’t allow his condition from dreaming big. He is currently pursuing a law degree to “advocate for the blind.”
Thank You, Jesus, that You worked all things for good in Dallas’ life!
