Tammie Jo Shults allowed the Holy Spirit to flow through her as she navigated her plane to an emergency landing.
One of the plane’s engines had just exploded. The debris broke a passenger’s window, and the passenger was partially sucked out, eventually dying from her wounds.
But through it all, Shults knew the Peace that surpasses all understanding was with her, and she says now sees just how God was already preparing her heart earlier that day. She was far from the only believer manning the plane that day.
First Officer Darren Ellisor and flight attendants Rachel Fernheimer, Seanique Mallory and Kathryn Sandoval shared their testimony on CBS This Morning.
“Well, in LaGuardia, when we had a little extra time, we were chatting, and Rachel had gotten a new Bible with room to journal on the side, and she and Seanique and then Kathryn was talking about she was in a study of Psalms, which is where I’m doing a study in Psalms and Proverbs,” Shults said of the meeting the crew had before the flight. “When you talk about things deeper than the weather, your family and faith, the things that matter to you, even if they’re different, it tends to bring a bond.”
Mallory said: “Well, it was the peace that God had given us all. It’s a peace that surpasses all understanding. Like Tammie Jo said, we came together beforehand and we all talked about God, and not knowing what was going to happen minutes later, God had already prepared us without us even knowing.”
