Rob Colombo’s true story is amazing, yet it’s more than that. Like other miracle testimonies, his is not a clean-cut account, yet it is powerful and challenging. As does the biblical Book of Job, beyond relaying the miraculous events, illuminating visions, and spiritual perceptions that he experienced, through both prose and poetry, Rob reveals visceral longterm effects of tragedy upon one’s life and faith, and probes intense questions of the meaning and purpose of existence.

Excerpt: A policeman stopped by one evening and asked if I would go with him. They had a bad situation in a motel across town. A man was holding another man at gunpoint, threatening to kill him over a woman, and promising to take his own life. He had asked for a minister. When I arrived, Bob told the man that he had a preacher.
The man shouted out, “I want to hear him talk.” I told him who I was. He said that just last month he had come and heard me preach. After courteous exchanges, I said that I needed to come inside the room to talk to him. I walked in without his answer.
There he stood, holding a large-caliber revolver up to the side of this man’s head. I called him by name and walked over to their sides. The man in the chair was trembling, and with a quivering voice he told me that he didn’t want to die. The man with the gun reassured me that he was going to blow the man’s brains out and then kill himself.
I calmly said, “Well, if you’re going to die, let me pray for you both before it’s over.” I asked for God’s mercy and told the Lord to be kind when He dealt with their wretched souls, and that I didn’t want to see them go to hell. I never closed my eyes. I literally was watching and praying—with good cause. In a moment, with both of them weeping, I reached out and took hold of the barrel of the gun, and I slowly pushed it to point toward the floor. I kept on praying in the Holy Ghost, and he released his hold on the pistol. When we walked out of the motel, the policeman, Bob, commented that I was either the craziest man that he knew or the bravest.
In the deep reef where the seaweed appears as leafy pastures of green, lives a sapphire-jeweled sea dragon called The Storyteller. “Hello, my name is Rawiya (raa-we-ya). I have many stories to tell—some of love, some of adventure, and some of learning life’s lessons to live better in this world. Many questions are asked of me. One of the biggest is how to deal with the challenge of change. That brings me to the story of a seahorse that just moved into the reef. He got a new start, a new home, and a new school after having a big adventure of seeking a place to belong. Change is difficult. Sometimes life seems to have no stability. It causes growing pains. Just because you are different than the rest, and some people aren’t nice or helpful, or they try to make you feel so small, doesn’t mean you aren’t wonderful. There is still hope to persevere to your destiny. Trials are part of the growing experience that stretches us further to live a better life.”

Each year on July 11, join in celebrating the anniversary of Zach Sandy’s miracle!
With high school behind us, this was supposed to be a last chance for summer fun with family and friends before heading into the real world of college and work. Tragedy never strikes us, always the Jones family down the street, right?
Brandon and I had just finished a basketball tournament, which we lost in an inglorious fashion, and we were sitting in the gym. His youth pastor ran up to him and said he had a call from his dad.
Brandon took the call and then looked at me and said, “Zach was struck by lightning.”
According to the light-hearted mood, I answered, “Well, good for him.”
The blood drained from his face as he replied, “No Zach was actually struck by lightning.” I ran outside and found my sister. We immediately began praying with a group of friends, and after that I made a few phone calls, asking friends to pray. I turned around and saw Brandon walking out into a field. With emotions running high, and my world falling apart, I followed him. We spent about 15 minutes with our faces in the grass travailing and pleading before God that he would perform a miracle….
—Samuel Vaughn (cousin to Zach and Brandon)
