The new sanctuary of the church where I pastored(Bettendorf,Iowa First Assembly) was nearing completion. As we drove up my wife and I saw smoke pouring from the windows.

Dolly called the fire department while I ran into the church. I threw a big flattened box over the flames stoming on top as fast as I could.This was a losing battle. Then a lone figure jumped through a window .I worked at my end and while I had to run to the window for air, my angelic paartner moved through the thickening smoke as if he had no need for oxygen.

Finally firefighters arrived and the building was saved. Amid news and police reports, I found no mention of my mysterious helper, so I simply thanked the One who must have sent the angel.
