Amazing Story!

By Sydneygrace @SydneyGrace121

I first read this story on Kinze’s blog, and I thought it was completely amazing, so I wanted to post it here as well! It gave me chills. God is so good. :)

“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.

-His name is Timothy Tebow.”

amazing story!

wow. I could have cared less about football, and I’ve never watched a football game in my entire life, but…I love Tim Tebow. (and now,  I love his mom too. What amazing faith she had! It just goes to show that through EVERYTHING, good and bad, God has a plan for our life that is greater than we could ever imagine.) He’s just so amazing! I love that he is using his life and fame as a platform for change and as a way to spread his faith. He loves Jesus. Rock on, Tim. :)
