Susan was in a serious biking accident. While cruising down a hill in excess of 30 mph, she swerved to avoid a bush and lost control of the bike, taking the impact on her head. Of course, this is what people have told her happened - Susan really has no remembrance because she was unconscious.
Susan woke up with a breathing tube in and hooked up to all other sorts of machines. She was alive, but just barely making it through. But what makes this event one of the truly most amazing things that has ever happened to Susan is what happened after the accident. She felt God's love expressed through her friends and family, her life group was a living testament to this.
Then it was the conversations with non-believer friends who saw what happened and starting asking Susan questions about God. Susan would say she is not an evangelist but has felt that this accident has compelled her to be one.
Her relationship with God has deepened. Her doubts as to whether God works in every day life are gone. She can say 100% He is here, present, and working in her life.
ROCKHARBOR is compelled to see God’s kingdom advance in South Africa. That’s why we are partnering with Bridges of Hope in the township of Sweet Home. Together, we are invested in resourcing locally-owned solutions to the challenges that have been identified by people living in Sweet Home. Our hope is to invest in ministry that embraces orphaned and vulnerable children, disciples students, equips local leaders, and addresses significant health challenges through sustainable methods. ROCKHARBOR also sends teams to Sweet Home each year to come alongside our partner through running camps for both the Academy students and children of Sweet Home. These camps will support and grow a newly planted youth ministry program and equip leaders to be on the front lines of bringing Jesus’ gospel to people that are desperate for it.
