Amazing Story!!!

In a recent email, I read about a woman named Pam, who knows the pain of considering abortion. More than 24 years ago, she and her husband Bob were serving as missionaries to the Philippines and praying for a fifth child. Pam contracted amoebic dysentery, an infection of the intestine caused by a parasite found in contaminated food or drink. She went into a coma and was treated with strong antibiotics before they discovered she was pregnant.

Doctors urged her to abort the baby for her own safety and told her that the medicines had caused irreversible damage to her baby. She refused the abortion and cited her Christian faith as the reason for her hope that her son would be born without the devastating disabilities physicians predicted. Pam said the doctors didn't think of it as a life, they thought of it as a mass of fetal tissue.

While pregnant, Pam nearly lost their baby four times but refused to consider abortion. She recalled making a pledge to God with her husband: If you will give us a son, we’ll name him Timothy and we’ll make him a preacher.

Pam ultimately spent the last two months of her pregnancy in bed and eventually gave birth to a healthy baby boy August 14, 1987. Pam’s youngest son is indeed a preacher. He preaches in prisons, makes hospital visits, and serves with his father’s ministry in the Philippines. He also plays football. Pam’s son is Tim Tebow.

The University of Florida’s star quarterback became the first sophomore in history to win college football’s highest award, the Heisman Trophy. His current role as quarterback of the Denver Broncos has provided an incredible platform for Christianity.

The other day someone forwarded me a picture of a football player on one knee in prayer. I took from the context that "some" are upset and questioning the legality of his open dedication to God.

I had no idea who he was and had not heard of Tebowing (I live outside the U.S.) Since then I have become informed and I appreciate both his fervent stand as well as the good controversy he has caused.

It is great to read his story. Life is precious and both Biblically and Scientifically begins at conception. God is it's author and it's finisher.

Now as to where a Mach 1 fits in all of that? Without life you would never be able to enjoy a Mach 1!

I'am absolutely humbled by this womens faith. Not for one second did she question God, she simply asked him to give her a son. And she would give him back to the Lord. What simple Faith. And now her son has the courage to stand up in front of a world, that tries to push God further and further from our lives. Then kneels down, prays and gives the grace to God in front of one and all! Kuddos to Mr Tebow! An almost unbelieveable story that Just shows how only God can create someone out of nothing! Amen To God! JTS 71 Mach1
