Jesus Saves! South Carolina

The Cross saves Two.

In the midst of destruction, Jesus still saves.

" A woman trapped in floodwaters in South Carolina Sunday said she clung to a large cross for five hours before rescuers were able to reach her.

Clara Gantt was heading from Blythewood to her church in Irmo at around 6 a.m. Sunday as torrential rains battered the state, and she mistakenly drove into a sheet of water covering a road, the grandmother told NBC station WIS in Columbia.

Gantt's car was swept from the road near Blythewood and into a field next to small church. She told WIS that she tried calling 911 but got no answer, but was eventually able to reach her family.

Her grandson, Travis Catchings, arrived with a harness and rope and was able to overcome the pressure of the rushing water to force open the car door, he told the station. "I don't see how I did it. It was the hardest thing I've ever done in my life," Catchings said.

They waited, and held on to a bright red cross on the church property, Gantt said.

"Where my car stopped was right behind a huge red cross. I was literally, after I got out of the car, holding on the cross. I was clinging to the cross literally," she told the station.

""Jesus is my savior. This story is not about me, it's about what he did to save me. And he set my feet on higher ground.""

RE: In the midst of destruction, Jesus still saves.

First you get knocked down then you get picked up....by the same forces?

Did she mention if she was in favour of the Confederate flag being removed?

she drove into the water

Nobody else made her do it. Are you incapable of seeing that distinction?

RE: she drove into the water

DUH?

Nobody else made her do it.

Didn't some entity create the situation that required her to drive into the water in order to get to church?
