I Say To You Believe But, Not By Sight

2 Corinthians 5:7  For we walk by faith, not by sight.

What Is Faith? – Faith means being sure of the things we hope for and knowing that something is real even if we do not see it. Hebrews 11:1


“List of sole survivors of airline accidents or incidents” 

In the history of aviation, there have been a small number of “sole survivors” of airline crashes.[1] Lone survivors are often left with physical and psychological injuries.[1] The youngest sole survivor is Paul Ashton Vick who on 28 January 1947, survived a China National Aviation Corporation crash when he was just 18 months old.[2] His father survived long enough to write down directions for returning the child to his grandparents before succumbing to his wounds.[2]

Another sole survivor is a former Serbian flight attendant, Vesna Vulović. According to the Guinness Book of Records she holds the record for surviving the highest fall without a parachute at 10,160 metres (33,330 ft). There was some controversy in 2009 when it was reported that her story might have been communist propaganda, but black box data strongly supported the official story.[3]

One of the more controversial lone survivors was Huang Yu (Chinese: 黃裕, Hanyu Pinyin: Huáng Yù) who tried to hijack the Cathay Pacific aircraft Miss Macao in 1948 but ended up crashing the plane killing the other 25 people on board.[4] The earliest known sole survivor is Linda McDonald. On 5 September 1936, she survived a Skyways sightseeing plane crash that killed ten other people, including her boyfriend.[5]

Since 1970, one-third of lone survivors of airline crashes have been children or flight crew.[6]

      I have always been amazed by these miracles. One little girl died in a plan crash while sitting in her mom’s lap. Her mom, dad and brother all died in this same crash. Obviously. the Lord kept her for an important mission
