If you’re someone who has paid any attention to my blog, you know I love sharing how God works even in today’s times. One of the many things I love about God is that he can do his wonderful works anywhere in the world for anyone he chooses, regardless of their socioeconomic status, ethnicity, or skin color. I believe God must have a special place in his heart for children–which brings me to this story out of Nanjing City in eastern China.
Recently, it was reported on CCTV, China’s state-run TV network, that four-year-old Xuan was run over in an alley by a minivan in a hit-and-run accident. The YouTube video (which can be hard to watch) released by the TV station shows the boy chasing a little girl in the alley when the minivan driver runs little Xuan over with his front and rear tires. Normally, a child would be crushed to death in such an accident, but the boy got up and walked a few feet before the footage ends.
His father, Zheng, was able to flag down the driver after the accident and called the police while his son was rushed to the hospital. Xuan was kept in the hospital for three days to make sure everything was fine. Zheng said they only had to give him sutures for a minor wound and didn’t find anything else wrong with him. Xuan will have to report back to the doctors after a month for a follow-up exam.
The driver claimed he didn’t realize a child had run in front of his van. The police said they’re currently investigating the incident to verify what the driver told them. With a miraculous story such as this one being reported on China state TV, is it possible that this scientifically-implausible, supernatural incident will increase the possibility that some atheists in China may at least acknowledge God’s existence? I hope so. Then, hopefully, some of them will ask enough questions to send them on the path to salvation through the Lord Jesus.
