This man says that an angel saved his life. This story will prove that God works in mysterious ways. With the events that unfold in this story, you might even remember this, since this tragic event in this man's story made national headlines.

In the early 1990s, at the age of 17, Michael's mom and dad owned a large dairy farm where he worked growing up. Every day, he would run up to the store to get his nightly video and some junk food.

But this evening would be a day that work would shake this small town in Bonney Lake, Washington.

His mom gave him the money to get the usual stuff, and off he went in her bright red 1991 Cadillac Eldorado.

He had just put in Roxette Joyride, and as soon as he got to the end of the driveway, he heard "Don’t go".

He immediately stopped the car, looked around, and saw nothing. He shook it off and proceeded to drive off, and he heard it again, "Don’t go," this time much louder. This time he hesitated, but he turned around and pulled back into the driveway.

When he got back inside, his mom asked him what happened and why he didn’t go to the store, and he just said, "I’ll go later."

Not too much longer, the house started to shake, a helicopter landed in the back field where their house was, and sheriff's vehicles were flying down their road and even pulling into their driveway.

Come to find out, there was an active shooter on the road, taking out drivers on the same road that Michael would have been on. This shooter killed their neighbor and paralyzed another.

This active shooter would become known as Ricky Thorpe.

In March of 1993, Ricky Thorpe, who had gotten into an altercation with someone who seemed to be getting into trouble with the law, took his brother. 22 rifle with a banana clip and walked down the street and started shooting at people as they drove by and as people came out of their house. Rickey killed one person and severely injured six others.

There is no doubt that Michael would be in the sights of this shooter. Why did he hear "Don’t go" and why did he not go?

Michael believes it was an angel from the Lord protecting him from something that could have been very devastating. With this happening, he now knows that angels do exist. Thanks, Michael, for allowing me to share your testimony.
