A Christian couple never grew tired of sharing their story until today when two angels rescued them from a blinding snowstorm.
Christmas Time In 1967
A real story shared by Cecil Murphey and Marley Gibson on CBN continue to amaze people. Apparently, their parents encountered two angels during Christmas in 1967.
Going back to 1967, the Christian couple had their new vehicle four-door Thunderbird. It was the Christmas holidays, and the couple wanted to spend time with their children. So, they decided to travel from Alabama to Massachusetts, even though it was a long trip north.
Meanwhile, their daughter began to worry because of the snowy weather and asked them to stay. But her dad insisted that he could still drive amidst the heavy snow. He was confident with their new car and “don’t expect any problems getting home.”
Meeting Two Angels Amidst Blinding Snowstorm
Later, the couple, unfortunately, caught up in a blinding snowstorm in Connecticut. According to the story, the dad had only “about a five-foot visibility. Just then, his right-rear tire blew.”
Now, the couple had no choice but to leave the car to change the tire. But the problem was the father “was weak and feverish” at the time. Also, cell phones still did not exist during that time.
So, the dad went out from the vehicle despite his condition while his wife stayed inside. The wife wanted to help, but he did not allow her. Instead, he told her, “One of us out in the storm is enough. No sense in your getting sick. Stay inside, pray, and keep warm.”
All the wife could do was pray, “Dear God, please help us.”
The dad wasn’t long outside when two young men suddenly appeared out of nowhere. Then they offered to help him change the tire.
“Sir, we’ll be glad to change the tire for you,” they told him. But before he could even resist, the other man said, “Please, get back in the car, sir. It’s freezing out here. We’ll change the tire.”
He gave in and let the two men help him. Then he went back inside the car with his wife.
The wife continued to pray amidst the ordeal. Soon after, the men were done changing the tire. And before the husband could even pay them, the two men disappeared.
Later, he discovered that there were no traces of the two men.
“He looked around. He couldn’t see evidence that a truck or car had stopped.. He saw no footprints except his own,” their daughter recounted.
“God answered my prayer,” his wife concluded. “He sent two angels. Christmas angels. Sent by God to help us, and they left when their job was done. In the Bible, isn’t that how angels did things?”
Today, as the mother retells that encounter with the angels, she doesn’t mind those skeptical.
“It doesn’t matter whether you believe,” she said. “We know that we had a true Christmas miracle in Connecticut when two angels watched over us by changing our flat tire in the middle of a snow storm.”
