Devine Intervention - Angel Stories

By: Anthony

I am with the armed services assigned with a special unit to work on the terrorist communist groups in my country. We were then given a week-long mission purposely to recover war materiel hidden by the communists in a remote community. As we learned during the briefing before we departed for the mission, only two armed bandits were guarding the supposed hide-out. Our commanding officer decided, the three of us could handle the job plus the guide who will accompany us to the target area. Two days passed and we hadn't carried out the mission due to some circumstances. Unknown to us, some twenty heavily armed communist insurgents were holed-out in the area by then. On the fourth day we proceeded with our plan and headed for a recon on board an SUV. We did not consider arming ourselves with high-powered firearms and brought only pistols. My commanding officer did not even bring a stick to protect himself, but just put-on an armor vest confident that our plan will work out. The plan was, after the recon we turn back, the guide will trick the two commies and we jump on the two and subdue them. As we passed-by on the heavily tinted SUV, we marked the target and drove ahead for 200 meters and made an abrupt turn towards the target. We were still unaware of the danger lurking ahead. It has been my habit saying a prayer of protection from Mama Mary when going to work. I was holding a small wooden crucifix hung around my neck when I asked "Lord if it is your will deliver them to us" when we make the recon. Then the odd thing happened, when the SUV was heading for the assault. At about hundred meters from the target, I said to the team "Get ready!" And that was the last thing I remembered and all the rest of us. As if the world had disappeared and time had stopped for a couple of minutes. We all regain our senses some seven kilometers away back heading our home base and exclaimed in unison "what happened!" We are all flabbergasted and cannot believe what had just transpired. When we returned to the command post everybody is still awake at 1:30am waiting for us to return because the commanding officer joined the mission. In the morning it was decided to stand-by for another operation but was completely cancelled the following day after receiving negative report on the objective. The whole picture of the incident became clear, God sent an Angel to protect us from harm. A young soldier among those waiting for our arrival told us that we had a "company" when we returned. He told me that there were four of us except the guide in the vehicle. A young boy dressed in white was positioned between you and the driver of the SUV, he said. The boy never left the vehicle while the mission is on stand-by. He just left when commanding officer finally terminated it. A few days later we learned from intelligence report of the twenty terrorist waiting for us and had also left after our first day of operation. Home in our headquarters in the capital, I told the young soldier, "why did you not inform me at once", I demanded. And he replied "Sir, I thought you're aware of the boy beside you; and I thought all along that the boy was the informant's son or you've just pick-up along the way". And I thank God the more and pray too to His Holy Angels.
