A Miracle from the Aurora Theater Shooting

Do you believe in miracles?
A story has hit the blogosphere from Brad Strait, a Colorado pastor. He was at Columbine in 1999. He was in an Aurora-area hospital this week. It was there that he found Petra Anderson, a 22 year old churchgoer at Cherry Creek Presbyterian (Brad’s church) and one of many victims in last week’s horrific shootings. With four bullet wounds–––three to her arm and one to her brain–––things looked bleak:
With awesome people from our caring and pastoral team, I spent all day Friday in the ICU with Petra and her family. Her injuries were severe, and her condition was critical. A bullet had entered Petra’s face through her nose, and then traveled up through her brain until stopping at the back of her skull. The doctors prior to surgery were concerned, because so much of the brain had been traversed by the bullet. Many areas of brain function were involved. They were hoping to keep her alive long enough to get her into surgery. The prognosis was uncertain—if she lived, Petra might struggle with speech, movement, and thinking due to considerable brain damage. With Kim, Petra’s mother (who is in the final stages of terminal cancer), we simply cried, hugged, and prayed.
It is a story of great faith, incredible grace, and a life saved. I won’t spoil it (you need to read the entire thing), but wow–––our God is a great God.
