touched by an angel

Location: Winston-Salem N.C. USA

By: Tina Willis

This story is short but beautiful. I took ill back in 1995-2001. I was in need of a spiritual connection, and started to pray. I knew i had to get into a christ believing church, so I wanted some inspiration from God. I had it on my mind for quite some time at this point. I went out riding with a friend this one evening around 6:00. We went by a church that had just been rebuilt. I often would see it and wanted to check it out. We were looking for the times of service on the outside and as we were looking at the sign outdoors I saw spiritually two angels with wings whom were small like the age of a 9 or 10year old child. They were talking and I could see them spiritually they looked up at us and a sense of peace came over me. They were standing behind two short bushes. I knew my prayers had been answered. I was due for surgery and I just knew everything was going to be okay. I almost jumped out of the car and kept looking back. That church has over 3,ooo members today and that day it only had about 100. I know i was touched by those two angels.
