Word from the Mission Field

“Someone is watching over you!”

Have you ever felt the presence of angels when you were in a bad situation? It doesn’t mean you have “seen one,” although some people have, but the “presence” of someone “watching over you” is extremely calming, especially in a bad situation.

When we first moved to Haiti, after a short while we found ourselves in an “embargo.” This was done because of political reasons. There were riots, blackouts, shootings, roadblocks… Bobby and I lived in the mountains but had to go down to an area called Petionville. It was a Sunday… everything seemed “calm,” and we drove down from the mountain. After a while, when we were driving through Petionville, we saw some roadblocks! Instantly, we knew there was trouble. Bobby turned down a side street and all of a sudden, we saw men with rocks and guns in front of us! They had red scarves around their heads! Bobby put the truck in reverse and tried to back out, but the gang immediately surrounded us. They had red bandannas around their heads with guns and huge rocks in their hands. They were yelling at us and telling us to “get out!” We felt that they would kill us, but we felt the peace of God in a “dangerous situation.” All of a sudden, the man in front of us put his hand up and then motioned for the gang to remove the roadblocks! These men did not know us, but I believe “we were surrounded by angels,” and “someone was watching over us!”

We drove out of there so quickly, shaking, but feeling the peace of God. When the Lord is with you, you are a majority! You are surrounded by His angels! The angel of the Lord has sent “ministering spirits” to you… “For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.” (Psalm 91:11-12)

Someone is always “watching over you!” Sherry
