Man Who Attempted to Commit Suicide Surrenders to God

Mauricio gave his life to Jesus tonight. As I prayed for him, I noticed that he had a bandage over his left eye and that entire side of his face drooped toward the floor. He explained to me that he has been living far away from God. His life became so desperate that he decided to commit suicide. He put a pistol to his chin and pulled the trigger. The bullet passed through his jaw, shattered his cheekbone, and exited through his eye socket. But, by the mercy of God, his life was spared. I told him that Satan had tried to take his life, but that God had saved him. I explained that God has a purpose for his life and I encouraged him to follow God with all his heart.
