Angel outside the Parish

Location: Auckland New Zealand

By: Abram Toa

One day back in February this year.. My partner Joeanne came to see me on her way to work (we stay at different houses as were not married yet). She was abit shaken, She had backed into the her metal fence at her home, Her car is white and he metal fence is green, I looked down at the car and saw her bumper had been pushed in! quite nasty actually i went down to my knees and had a close look and yeah very nasty indeed! It had green paint here and there. I said to her that i would pull it off and attempt to bang it out. i gave er a hug and told her not to worry about it. She carried on to work!. After she finished work we went to a cultural festival and then went to Mass at 6pm (Our Lady Of Assumption Onehunga, Auckland, New Zealand.) Mass was great as always! We finished mass and then walked to our car park, we spoke again about what happend, She told me that her dad had to repair the fence and repaint it, I told her again that i would try to fix it, We walked to the car and to my amazement? there was no damage to the car? i couldnt understand it! i said to Joeanne... Ummmmm theres no damage to your car? Im positive there she was and I couldnt believe it either? our jaws were just dropping to the ground! i bent down and felt around the bumper.. and it was perfect! nothing on it! and i couldnt feel the slightest dent or anything!! The green paint was still on the car! but no damage! Were pretty sure that when we were in mass? The power of prayer had sent an Angel down to repair the damage.


God bless
