Does God Care? Tania Joseph's Testimony

Written by Metro Blogger.

DoesGodCare1920 Jan142017

On October 24, 2015, Tania Joseph was involved in a near-fatal accident.  She suffered severe trauma to her brain.  On October 28, she coded.  Metro prayed and prayed and prayed some more.  Doctors were able to revive her, and she was transferred to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, where she was to spend several of the next months of her life.  There was lots of doubt about whether she would ever fully recover, what state her brain would be in if she recovered, whether she would ever resume anything close to a normal life.  The situation was heartrending for her husband, two young daughters, immediate family and all of her extended family and friends.  But through the doubt, prayers continued to be sent up on her behalf

Today, Tania Joseph is driving again on Maryland roads.  Listen to her tell her remarkable story at 5:00 p.m. on January 14.

It's easy to participate.  First, register yourself and/or family.  This is to show evidence of your participation and allow us to track data about how Metro is changing our church and community with better health choices, one family at a time.  It is the goal of the Health Ministry to help Metro become the first “Blue Zone” church in Hyattsville. How exciting!!!
