And Then Came the Angels
A True Story of Faith and Determination by Beth Gayle
Richard Gipson Gayle and his family had the world on a string. “Gip” was a star student-athlete; active in school, sports, church, and youth groups; just starting college and already making new friends. Dad’s business was booming, Mom had just started a dream job, and younger brother Taylor was about to follow in Gip’s footsteps in high school.
Then the unimaginable happened—a horrific hunting accident in rural Georgia—the news no parent wants to get—
Your son has been shot in the head, at close range, with a twelve-gauge shotgun!
Gip Gayle was not expected to survive the night. The complexity of his injuries was beyond the realm of normal medicine and surgery. His story of survival is one of brilliant surgeons racing against the clock... of powerful forces coming together from the most surprising sources... of a family threatened by despair and overwhelming odds...
And Then Came the Angels.
Ultimately this is the story of earthly angels who rallied the Gayle family’s faith and determination.
If you’ve ever had doubt or felt your strength slipping in the face of fear, this dramatic real-life account will energize you and renew your courage.
