Matthew 21:21 (New International Version)
Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done.
On December 14, 2005, fire broke out in Tracinda Foxe's kitchen in New York City. The thirty-year old mother began to panic as flames raced through her third story apartment. She soon realized that she was cut off and she could not escape.
Smoke filled her apartment within minutes. Her three week old son Eric soon was overcome by the smoke and stopped breathing.
"God, please save my son,"' Foxe screamed. She explained afterwards: "I prayed that someone would catch him and save his life."
Tracinda ran to the window, but the smoke prevented her from seeing below. In a desperate act, she screamed "Save my son! Save my son!" And then she released her grip on her precious son. Eric plunged thirty feet.
Instinctively, Felix Vasquez, a housing authority supervisor who happens to play on the baseball team at a nearby Bronx housing project, reached out and caught little Eric. Vasquez, who learned mouth-to-mouth resuscitation as a teenaged lifeguard, began mouth-to-mouth and was able to revive little Eric.
Moments after Felix's life-saving catch, two firefighters broke into the burning apartment and rescued Tracinda.
Dear Lord we praise you that everything is possible for those who believe and trust in Christ. Thank You Lord for loving and caring for us. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
