During a heavy downpour in Washington that caused floodwaters, a Virginia Waller-Torres got stuck on the highway. Fearing for her life, she uttered a prayer and within 45 seconds, Marines showed up to help her get out of the situation.
Virginia was worried about getting hit by an oncoming vehicle because their car stalled in the middle of the road. Just when she was about to lose hope, just like superheroes, six 230 to 240-pound marines in their dress uniforms were coming. She said, “It was like they were sent from somewhere else, from a higher power.”
Cpl. Mitchell Wojtowicz, one of the marines said, “If there was anyone who was going to be able to help her, it was us.”
The other respondent, Cpl. Jared Tosner said, “We figured it would be a good idea to just lend a helping hand and help out our fellow American.”
Virginia’s car stalled near the Arlington National Cemetery. The marines that helped push the stalled Mini Cooper to dry ground were Marine Corps Body Bearers. They were responsible for performing funeral services in the said cemetery.
During a reunion of the marines and Virginia, they found a deeper connection. The rescued lady’s grandfather was a World War II veteran and was buried in the Arlington National Cemetery. Her father fought in the Persian Gulf war.
She said that she sent the video to her father and he started crying because seeing her daughter being saved by marines was emotional for him. “My father said in the Gulf War, he did, and continues to have, such respect for the Marines,” she ended.
Matthew 7:7-8 says, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”
God will always provide the needs of those who have faith in Him.
