I was in early twenties in 1993 a burglar alarm installer for a small company in Indianapolis, Indiana. I installed security systems in several church's that year. Every church I worked in the pastor, preacher was trying to get me to start coming to their service on Sunday. One even tried to talk me into getting baptized. I always declined.
I started having very scary nightmares, every night I was being stalked by the devil. The worst dream I was driving my truck and I seen a man trying to hitch a ride with his thumb in the air at a corner and said to myself sorry I don't pick up strangers. I drove to the next corner I seen the same man, he had a sick looking grin on his face like I felt he was thinking going my way. Again I kept driving. The next corner he was there again, this time his hand was down and he was mad because I wouldn't pick him up. I drove to the next corner he was there again but this time he stared at me with a hatred that I could feel deep in my soul then his eyes turned blood red I felt this man was the devil. I sat up in my bed still asleep and stated three times my soul hurts. My wife woke me and said, do you realize what you just said? Then she asked me to start going to her church with her.
A few days had passed, I was installing an alarm in another church my wife asked me if I would pick up our daughter from her grandmothers house after work. I picked her up just before sundown. I was driving on I 65 south in the fast lane at rush hour when my truck suddenly stalled, I had to get get over in a hurry there was no shoulder left of the fast lane. My truck came to a rest between the interstate and an on ramp where the two interstates I 65 and I 70 combine.
Traffic was on both sides of my truck with every pass of a vehicle my truck would sway side to side. My daughter was only six, she was very scared, I told her not to worry that Daddy would get us to safety. I told her not to open her door Daddy will come over to her side and get her out when it was safe. I got out of my side and started to go around to the back of the truck so I could keep an eye on the traffic when all of a sudden a man was behind my truck already out of his car, he yelled hey! Your daughter. I turned around and opened my door fast as I could she was trying to get out on her side. I pulled her back in and shut her door just a car drove by on her side.
That car was going at least 75 mph. When it went by it grazed my mirror. That man had came along and saved both our lives. A true angel. I really mean a real angel. When I was out of my truck walking toward the back there was no car it appeared out of nowhere I never took my eye off the interstate I would have seen it pull up and stop and I surely would have seen him get out of his cab. After saving us. I say us because if something would have happened to my baby that day it would have killed me I would not have been able to continue my life. Anyway he told me to get in his cab and asked me my address.
I told him and he drove us home. By this time it was dark he drove home the route I always took. He pulled into my drive like he lived there his whole life. My porch light was off, without the light my address couldn't be seen, he never turned on his flash light that was attached to the driver door. And all the way home he preached to me telling me to start living right, go to church.
I tried to pay him cab fare he would not accept, My wife offered him dinner he said he had to go and that he had a very busy night ahead of him. I wrote down his information, his hack license number, cab company number, his name and the number assigned to the car. The next day I called the cab company to tell his boss how he saved a life and the dispatcher told me that they didn't have a cab with that number or a driver by that name. I also found out the hack number didn't exist either. I really believe he was an angel sent down to save my daughters life...
