Melanie Marquez has been urging people to rediscover Jesus Christ, two months after she survived a road accident in Arizona, USA.

 

The 49-year-old former beauty queen was driving home in her car last Dec. 7, along with her 12-year-old son Adam, and two others, when it fell off a 12-foot ravine.

Despite her injuries, Melanie managed to climb out of the ill-fated vehicle to ask for help. Melanie claimed she was not alone during that horrific moment as God sent her a guardian angel.

“Naramdaman ko ‘yung force na humila sa akin tapos hinawakan ako para itayo ako. Napatayo ako sa paa ko tapos may nakayakap lang sa akin,” Melanie recounts in an interview with “Unang Hirit.”

She added: “’Yung paglakad ko sa mountain, talagang ramdam na ramdam ko that I was comforted. I know it’s an angel that God has sent to me.”

The angel, she added, even advised her to contact her daughter first before calling 911.

For those who remain skeptical of her story, Melanie stressed: “I was there. I know God exists, I know God listened to my prayer… and he sent (us) an angel.”

Melanie said her faith has grown stronger after the incident.

“Ang pananaw ko sa buhay, lalong tumatag. Ang pananampalataya ko sa Diyos ay lalong tumibay talaga kasi naniniwala akong hindi natin nakikita ang Panginoon pero naririnig niya tayo,” she said, admitting that she was not a religious person when she was younger.

She continued, “Ang Diyos po ay buhay. Lahat po kayo, huwag ho kayong mawalan ng pag-asa basta ang pananampalataya po ninyo nandiyan.”

Melanie is now in the Philippines for the continued rehabilitation of her fractured spine and sternum. Manila Bulletin
