The name of the boat being used for the search: IN JESUS I TRUST
We got a report from Roberto and Elisabeth today…
Roberto shared that the boat they were in had bags of cement, iron re-bar, and about 8 tons of sand, all of which was going to be used for the construction of their house. He said that after the boat was sucked under by the current of the ship he was under water for about 2 minutes fighting against a whirlpool and strong pressure in his ears. Feeling desperate he just started to pray. He said:
“I could see a bright light and I sincerely thought it was Jesus waiting for me and He gave me a special strength to try to swim or run towards Him and then when I was almost there, I realized that it was the surface of the water. All of the other five survivors were looking for me. I was the last to come up out of the water. Thank God we are all alive and can give a true testimony of how He takes care of His children. We still have not found the boat. We have spent four days so far and tomorrow we will go out once again. Please continue praying that we can rescue the boat and the motor, which are the most expensive things that were lost.”
Psalms 18: 6
In my distress I called upon the Lord;
to my God I cried for help.
From his temple he heard my voice,
and my cry to him reached his ears.
