As anyone who follows my writings knows, I strongly believe in angels. I have already written about hearing the seraphim and cherubim singings and more recently, I heard a great thunderous noise of angel wings right in my bedroom here in Hamilton, Ontario. (I had been reading this book, so perhaps they came to remind me that they are forever present in my life!)
Where Angels Walk is a great little book that relates personal tales of people who have had some kind of interaction with angels at times when they most needed their comfort and/or support. One story, The Fluttering of Wings relates a purportedly true story by Lee Ballard who was a missionary and traveled to a remote village in the Philippine Islands to turn the people’s oral language into written words and eventually, to write a Bible in that language.
Ballard had been in the village about six months when his supervisor arrived to determine his progress. Although he had learned hundreds of words that these people spoke in their native Ibaoli, he did not perform well and was quite depressed.
He was sitting on his front porch overlooking the village one night and worry about this when a man who went by the name Pug-Pug walked up to him. Unlike the usual villagers, Pug-Pug did not carry a torch to ward of the island spirits and he was quite forward, rather than shy. He also wore boots and an overcoat, unlike the barefoot villagers who wrapped themselves in blankets on cool nights.
Even more amazing was the fact that Ballard and Pug-Pug talked for over an hour – all in the native language! And even though Pug-Pug said he was related to one of the villagers, Ballard later learned that no one had ever heard of him.
From that night forward, Ballard regained his confidence and went on to write the New Testament in Ibaoli, as well as several hymnals. He never could pinpoint just who Pug-Pug might have been but he does know that he arrived at just the right moment to give Ballard the nudge he so desperately needed to help the people of that remote village.
This book relates a number of stories where strangers have arrived at just the right time to help someone in need and it is generally not until later that people realize that they may have entertained an angel in disguise. These stories are heartwarming and bound to uplift your spirits when you realize that angels come in many forms and often when they are least expected.
