A previous post told about Esther, a girl who was injured when her bus was bombed by radical Muslims.
Today, more than 15 years after her bus was bombed, Esther is a teacher at a nursing college and a youth leader at her church. Radical Muslims still blow up buses in the Philippines. Esther remembers the bombing any time she travels on a bus. She is startled when she hears noises, like the sound of a mango falling on a roof. When she smells smoke, it reminds her of the bus exploding.
Recently Esther’s parents were traveling in their vehicle through a town in Mindanao when they heard a loud noise. A bomb had exploded, and it killed a person on a motorcycle in front of them, and another motorcyclist behind them. Many others were injured, but by God’s grace, Esther’s parents were spared.
It’s not easy living in a place where bombs can explode at any time. Esther trusts God and remembers His mercy toward her. She believes that the Lord will help her find peace.
