"I THINK THE GREATER MIRACLE IS THAT (GOD) TOOK A MAN WHO WAS FIERCELY INDEPENDENT AND MADE HIM CONTENT IN A WHEELCHAIR."
37 years ago, Bob was in a terrible car accident one week into his year-long mission in Lagos, Nigeria. The accident left him a quadriplegic. This is a story of his grief and perseverance.
To the right Bob is pictured with his beautiful family. This photo was taken at his daughters wedding in 2017.
My favorite thing Bob says - "Sometimes we do need to weep, sometimes we do need to grieve, sometimes just the guttural part of us has to come out as part of our healing. There has been many times when I cried...there have been many times where my heart has hurt. But then the sun always comes out...and I find ways to move forward."
