Talk about divine intervention, an 82-year-old woman from South Africa was almost shot to death in her own home… but her life was spared thanks to a bible.
Bettie Nel woke up one night to discover two intruders in her farmhouse. She tried to defend herself by throwing a doorstop at one of them, which led them to fire their gun at her. Luckily, there was a bible sitting beside her, which absorbed the bullet that could’ve taken her life. After that, the intruders fled the property.
Police are searching for not only the two intruders, but six suspects thought to be involved in multiple firearms and phone robberies at the house. This latest incident is just one in the recent rise of crimes against white farmers in South Africa.
