My son and I were traveling to his cub scout day camp in fall of 2008, we were going to a place in the North Georgia mountains. Having only sketchy directions, I got lost and thought I should turn around. I turned off the main road to a small side road and then tried to turn around. When backing up, my truck went back to far and I got stuck on a slope that was about a 20 to 30 foot drop into a wooded area. I called my wife and then 911 for help. 911 told me it would be about 30 to 40 minutes before anyone would get there. My 6 yr old son said "Daddy I am afraid". I told him what do we do when we're afraid. "He said pray" So we said a prayer and as soon as the prayer was finished a man showed up and pulled my truck back on to the road. The man had a chain in the back of his van and was very nice. I know this man was an angel sent by our Lord.
Praise God and what a great lesson for both my son and me.
