"Mr. Weiss? I'm sorry, but . . . it seems there's been an accident."
With that life-changing call in June 2014, Tad Weiss learns that his daughter, Maggie, who is ten days into a study-abroad program in Seville, Spain, has been hit by a bus while on her morning run. Within hours he and his wife, Wendy, are on a plane to Seville and to the hospital where Maggie lies in a coma. Feeling helpless and anxious to get to their daughter, they do the only thing that brings them comfort-they pray.
What at first appears to be an unimaginable tragedy soon reveals itself as evidence that God is in complete control. Through the support of Wendy and an unexpected community of believers, Tad's eyes are opened to God's desire to use even the most catastrophic of events to achieve His purposes. This story of healing and spiritual reawakening is told through the viewpoint of a grief-stricken father, utilizing the posts he wrote at the time to share Maggie's progress with friends, family, and a growing number of followers.
This journey of faith and uncertainty culminates in an amazing and unforeseen athletic accomplishment that wouldn't have happened if not for the accident. It is a testimony to the power of prayer, and proof that God performs miracles today, just as He always has. Anyone who loves a story of perseverance and faith will find encouragement in 25 Meters to God.
