God Answered Immediately

While serving as a helicopter pilot in Viet Nam in 1967, I was called upon to medevac a seriously wounded soldier.  He had both legs and an arm blown off in a mine explosion.  I was to fly him to the hospital at Bien Hoa, some 40 miles away.  Due to low cloud cover, beginning at 200 feet, I decided to fly above the clouds and home in on Bien Hoa mountain, which was visible through the low hanging clouds.  This was safer than flying low level and risk being hit by enemy ground fire.  As I approached the Air Base, I realized that it had 200 foot power lines surrounding the Base.  I said "God, this man is still alive and I need help to get him and my crew down safely."  At that very moment, the clouds parted over the entire length of the runway.  As soon as I landed safely at the hospital pad, the clouds then closed back up.  Thank God for His quick answer!
