Not too many years ago Bob Kuykendall didn’t believe in divine intervention.
“I felt like there was this sort of higher power, but maybe we were kind of on our own,” he explained. “Like [God] didn’t do anything.”
But then Kuykendall met Greg Hasberry, whose kidneys were failing.
Hasberry said his journey started off dark.
‘Depth of faith’
“I couldn’t see my way out,” he remembered. “This is coming from a man [who has] always been independent, always found my own way. It was a test in becoming vulnerable and finding a depth of faith I’d never touched.”
The same was true for Kuykendall. Through a series of unexpected events, he felt what he had always questioned in others, a sense of God’s leading.
“I knew I was giving him a kidney. I knew it,” he recalled.
And through that experience He not only gave Hasberry a new chance at life, Kuykendall got one too — a brand new faith in God.
“This wasn’t just about Greg’s kidney,” Kuykendall reflected. “I believe God was working on a two-for-one kind of deal.”
