The Today Show featured two families who experienced an incredibly unusual experience of mistaken identity. You may recall the event that took place back in 2006. Nine students from Taylor University were involved in a horrible auto accident, with eight of them dying. The only survivor was a blond-haired young lady, who had been thrown from the van, and was found with a purse by her side. Someone put the purse with the girl as identification for her transport to the hospital. Badly injured, she would spend time in ICU and a total of five week in the hospital after the accident. The girl’s name? Since the purse belonged to Laura Van Ryn, that’s who she was believed to be for the next five weeks.
However, as she slowly recovered and began speaking again, the bittersweet discovery was made that the surviving girl was not Laura Van Ryn, but actually Whitney Cerak. Laura was the one who died in the crash.
As you watch this video, you will hear two families speak clearly about their faith and confidence in the sovereignty of God. How refreshing to hear testimony like this on a major network television show! How encouraging for these two families to unashamedly speak about their Lord.
