Published

One mom’s incredible birth experience nearly ended in tragedy after her fresh c-section left her numb and unable to walk amid the raging California wildfires. An incredible collaboration of total strangers, however, led to Heather Roebuck’s safe escape and reunion with her husband and newborn daughter.

“It was sheer terror,” Roebuck said, recalling her own evacuation in an ambulance to ABC10. “They just stitched me up really quickly.”

Heather Roebuck had just had her baby in Feather River Hospital when the Camp Fire's flames began surrounding the building. Then a group of medical staff and first responders ensured she escaped and survived: http://via.fox40.com/lU4hs

They’d only driven half a mile from the hospital when the ambulance caught fire. Roebuck, unable to walk and surrounded by flames, made what she thought would be her last call to her husband.

“I realized I’m not going to make it, I’m really sorry,” she told him, adding that she loved him and wasn’t going to be there with the kids.

What happened next was a lifesaving miracle of cooperation between total strangers who went from saying their last goodbyes to fighting for survival in a matter of moments.

A pediatrician, who seemed to appear out of nowhere, placed Roebuck on a backboard and dragged her out into the street.

“I see the paramedic on the roof, spraying down the roof,” nurse Tamara Ferguson told ABC10. “I see someone over here with a hose filling buckets. Chrissy is sweeping, someone with a shovel, I picked up piles of brush and cleared them to the road.”

Paradise Fire Chief David Hawks also showed up to shuttle Roebuck and another ambulance of full of hospital patients into the nearest house.

“There’s a dog door here that one of the paramedics made access to. We unlocked the garage, moved patients into this home and sheltered them in place,” Hawks told Fox News.

The homes on either side each of the house were destroyed by the fire, but the home Roebuck and other Feather River Hospital ambulance patients sought shelter in only had a burned fence.

The home belongs to Desiree Borden, who had already barely escaped the fire along with her husband and daughter that night. “Once you got past one fire, there was another one, once you got past the next one, power poles were falling on you,” Borden told Good Day Sacramento.

Then, Borden received a shocking phone call: “They said, ‘Your home was a safe haven for us, your home saved our lives.’”

Roebuck credited the bravery and teamwork of all these people with her survival and return to her family: “They saved our family, and if it weren’t for them, I wouldn’t be here.”

Catholic Priest Says A Prayer For ‘Unborn Child In The Womb’ During The DNC

Published

on

A Catholic priest who was called upon to deliver a prayer during the Democratic National Convention no doubt made quite a few folks very, very angry by praying for and making a plea on behalf of unborn children at the end of the event. Rev. James Martin, a Jesuit who has caused quite a stir in the Catholic Church for his writings about gay and transgender issues, prayed that folks who were watching the event would open their hearts to “those most in need,” which included “the unborn child in the womb.” Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “Help to be a nation where every life is sacred, all people are loved, and all are welcome,” he said. Martin confirmed to the Washington Examiner earlier in the week that his prayer would contain explicit references to the unborn. Although a hot-button issue for much of the Democratic primary, abortion did not play a major role in the Democratic convention. Aside from Martin’s prayer, the issue received only minimal attention, with some speakers mentioning it in their speeches. Republicans, by contrast, are gearing up to make a major issue of abortion at the Republican National Convention next week. In addition to several anti-abortion speakers, the Republican National Committee invited Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York, to deliver the convention’s opening prayer. Dolan has previously done so at both the Republican and Democratic conventions, during which he prayed for the protection of the unborn. At the end of the day, abortion is one of the most critical issues to face our culture in modern history. The reason, of course, is because fundamentally, at the core of the issue, is the defense of the most basic right we all have. The God-given right to exist, to live. If we cannot…

President Trump Says He’d ‘Go In And Do A Number On Middle East Countries Persecuting Christians’

Published

on

President Trump recently said that he would “do a number” on countries located in the Middle East that are persecuting Christians if he could find solid proof and evidence that sort of thing was happening. Christians in that part of the world are heavily persecuted, mostly by radical Muslim government regimes and terrorist groups, for daring to stand up boldly for the gospel of Jesus Christ. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “If you look at the way Christians have been treated in some countries, it’s beyond disgraceful,” Trump said Thursday during a news conference at the White House. “If I had information and if I had absolute proof — some of the stories that we’ve heard, which are not easy, which is not easy to get — I would go in and do a number to those countries like you wouldn’t believe. He added, “What they do to Christians in the Middle East — it’s disgraceful.” Trump made the comment while discussing the nascent “Abraham Accord” treaty to normalize relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. This is not only going to be a big help to Christians in that area of the world, but it will also help Israel as well. For many, many years, the Jewish Nation has been surrounded by countries who do not recognize it’s legitimate right to exist. Striking this deal is a first step in changing that way of thinking in that part of the world. It’s something a lot of folks probably never dreamed possible before. Christians are told in the Bible to expect persecutions and to rejoice in suffering for the cause of Christ. However, that doesn’t mean we should allow persecution to continue on as if it’s a good thing. It’s not. If we have an opportunity…
