Mason Wells sure has had God on his said these past few years…and he’s only 19 years old. Mason was only a couple blocks away at the finish line of the Boston Marathon when it was attacked by terrorists, he also was in Paris at the time of ISIS’ attack there. Now, Mason is recovering in the hospital after being wounded in the attack on Brussels, as he was traveling on a missionary trip.
Yesterday he gave a phone interview with Good Morning America in which he said:
“I was actually in the back of the Delta check-in line when the first explosion went off. I was about 10 to 15 meters away and the blast was really loud.I remember being picked off the ground and I had some really hot and really cold sensations on the whole right side of my body, the burns. I felt fire in front of my face and also down the front of me.”
Mason’s interview was via phone, so the visual of the extent of his second and third degree burn, and shrapnel wounds recovery was not as apparent to the viewer.
Later in the day, Mason recorded a video from his hospital bed, telling his story and praising God for keeping him safe and hearing the prayers of the faithful.
For such a young man, his poise and courage are absolutely baffling. Being close to one terror attack is enough, never mind being swept up in the chaos of 3. It should be noted that his parents have decided that Mason’s missionary work will be put on hold for the foreseeable future…good idea.
