Praying for God’s protection!
In a recent trip to El Nido, Palawan where we are developing a camp site and our would be house, my cousin Rene, niece Ching
together with our housemate Tess and I had to take a BUS to the nearest place to take a small boat ride to our place. I took my car once and the road was terrible for a car plus I’d rather sit and enjoy the great views than get busy driving. And along the way we had a very serious bus trouble that almost took our lives. Thank God for saving us all from a mishap. I am truly grateful to my husband, my mom and my siblings and some really good friends who prays for me especially during my travels.
Just a few minutes off from town is a winding road going up and down hill, when on a curve, our bus driver was turning the wheel but the bus won’t follow. I thank God for the prayer he answered even before we left the terminal. The bus stopped just a couple of feet away from a sure fall by the cliff, I am so grateful that the driver had presence of mind. The lady owner of the bus was even seated in the front, and would not have been spared if we fell, Ching and I was seated right behind the driver and would have been a very critical spot too.
Our bus kept going the direction of the arrow and stopped right there!
We found out later that 2 buses have fallen off the same spot few months earlier and there had been casualties. My husband and I who was out of the country then and I texted and he said if no bus pass by, that we just hire trikes to take us to Bucana to catch the boat waiting for us.
On the picture is where we could have fallen down if it happened, 50 feet down easily. I thank God for the angels He sent to really stop it.
We made it safely to our place! God is awesome. We later learned that it took 3 hours for the bus to get fixed and made it to Bucana safely too.
What happened was the steering wheels connection to the steering rod gave in! Imagine that!!! Praise God really, I believe my cousins, niece and I still have a lot of missions in life to accomplish!
The steering wheel connector to the rod detached! oh my..
If our boat is on the water, we were to take a straight boat ride from town to our place. This boat should be back in water soon… Wowislands Travel and Tours will operate it as an Island Hopping boat for tourists who wants to see the lagoons and explore the white sand beaches of El Nido Palawan.
