Joy Break: ‘Angels Caught Me and Jesus Loves Me!’
When we turn on our television or smart phones we are bombarded with news that brings us down. Where are all the good stories? They’re still there. Here’s one that we hope will bless you.
A 5-year-old boy who was thrown from the third floor balcony at the Mall of America is walking “perfectly,” according to a recent update on his GoFundMe account. He credits angels who caught him and the love of Jesus.
Looking for Someone to Kill
On April 12, 24-year-old Emmanuel Aranda picked up Landen Hoffman and threw him over the railing in an inexplicable act of malice. Landen was in critical condition. His arms and legs were broken and doctors believed he had suffered a brain injury. An MRI revealed no brain injury and Landen returned home in August.
Aranda told investigators that he went to the mall looking for someone to kill. In June, Aranda pleaded guilty to attempted murder. He was sentenced to 19 years in prison.
Angels Caught Me and Jesus Loves Me
Now Landen comforts others who have been hurt. “Don’t worry, I fell off a cliff,” he tells them, “but Angels caught me and Jesus loves me, so I’m ok and you will be too!”
The GoFundMe page also stated that “when his mommy asks him if she can look at his wound or asks how he’s doing, he always responds with ‘Mom, I’m healed, you don’t need to ask me anymore.’ Landen loves life and Jesus!”
Landen still has some injuries and the Hoffman family has asked for prayer. “Please continue to pray for complete recovery as we are still healing! We love you!”
