“I had an overwhelming sensation at that moment that the man I was attending to was Christ himself. Christ was truly there, and he wanted me to know it. I did not see Christ physically, but spiritually I knew without a doubt that the man I was serving was the Lord Jesus, the second Person of the Holy Trinity.”
