Life: The Personal Experience


Who would have thought that a night out with a church group could turn
into a deadly accident? En route to a spring break camp, one of our van was hit
by a 18 wheelers\' truck; creating a night we wouldn\'t forget.
The story began with a trip to summer retreat. It was ticket to bring
me back to reality, and also tickets for some people to heaven. We loaded our
luggage into the back of the vans, and we headed off toward our destination. It
is about one or one and half hour later, one of our van stop at the stop sign,
when the driver of that van saw no car was coming, (some blind spot cover the
area that the driver can\'t see) he step the paddles and drive off, but a on
coming truck was driving too fast and didn\'t saw one of our van, it crushes the
van into three different pieces, everyone in our van saw it happened and
everyone is shocked of that terrible scene. Few minutes later, the cops and the
ambulances quickly arrived. We heard the loud noise come from the police and ask
us to help them, we quickly got off the van and helping the fire fighters and
the cops to pull people out of that vans, I saw lot of our church friend got
burned to death and some other just crushed by Small pieces. Everyone is in
tears including the police and fire fighters. After the rescue, we find out
most of people in that van died, but some in serious condition.
After that accident, I learned that life is meaningless, and learned that
we should help others while we can. My goal was to let God into my life. It
was one of the most relaxing and peaceful things I have ever done. Because we
all inspired by God, he helps us when we really needed him. He brings us out of
the nightmare that no one will ever forget. We gather all our church friend in
a small meeting every Friday, every time we meet, we would have small group
meetings and share anything that came to mind. We prayed for people to find God
in their life, and for everything that needed assistance. We also planned the
prayer service, meal plans, and chores for the next day. We saw God comes in our
life and helps us while we have trouble of doing some stuff that we just cannot
understand. He gives us power to think and solve the problem successively. I
was more conscious of how scripture relates to my life. I feel the purpose of
the meetings was accomplished. Not only were the participants reunited
themselves with God, they were also led into the direction by God. Before the
meetings, many of us didn\'t even know exactly why we were and where we were, and
where we would go next, cause we are upset of what happened. After this I
learned that every story has two sides, bright side and dark side. The dark side
is people died in that accident, but the bright side is we built strong
relationship with God and we have the strong faith than before. It opens my mind
with the different choice that we can choose in life.
Because of this meeting, I have become more spiritual in my daily life,
and I have set certain goals of reading some of the Bible every time I need to
work out a situation. Throughout the meetings, we kept teasing each other
about where our parents were, and that started many inside jokes. These jokes
were just the beginning of a special bond I found in our friendship.
