Missing boy found by man 'instructed by God'

A three-year-old who wandered off into the woods was found after a man was told 'by God' to go look for him.
The peculiar incident began on October 6th in Plantersville, Texas when the youngster - three-year-old Christopher Ramirez - followed a neighbor's dog into the woods and disappeared while his mother was unloading groceries from her car.

Quickly realizing that he was missing, his mother desperately searched for him but to no avail. The dog later returned on its own, however the young boy was nowhere to be found.

Before long, an extensive search and rescue operation was underway involving not only the FBI but a significant number of local volunteers who spent several days scouring the local woodland.

Fortunately, three days after he had gone missing, Christopher was discovered five miles from his home by a local volunteer.
Despite being tired and hungry, the boy was in surprisingly good condition following his ordeal.

What made his rescue even more incredible however was the circumstances surrounding it.

The man who found him, who wished to remain anonymous and is not suspected of foul play, claimed that during a Bible study class the previous evening, he had been told by God to go and search for the child because he would definitely find him.

He headed out as instructed the following morning and incredibly, actually did find him.

Whether or not he really did have a divine experience, it is possible that if he hadn't believed he would find the boy, he may never have even tried and Christopher may never have been located.

I see that nerve is still hurting, why else would you waste time trying to denigrate me.  Maybe you could spend some time examining why my trigger triggered your trigger.

Sometimes we need to face the ugly in order to get to the beauty. My grandmother is dead, died last summer. So the anchor to my religious animosity is gone. Which allowed me to let go of all that anger. It was much easier to shift gears and see a bit better. The best question to ask oneself is "Why do I feel this way?". Eventually some thing will be called from the deep abyss of the mind.

Sorry to interrupt the conversations, but i think that this is incredible news. What are the chances that someone who thinks they are "definitely going to find" a missing 3 year old would actually be able to find them? Add in the fact that this individual believes they had a message from God that he was going to find the boy and the coincidence is beyond remarkable.

Indeed, I didn’t know your Grandma passed, sorry for your loss and I can relate deeply, after my mom died the best part was the opportunity for healing that has taken place, I have rebuilt a new self. Her death was a such a gift on so many levels  I no longer hold any hatred for her either. I even had a rebirth ceremony. Thank you for sharing. And, well done on your end.

For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. This started with your arrogant objection to a prayer of mine for someone who, themselves, prays for others, all the time. Of course, you didn't know that; you used it to lash out at the ghosts in your head. Who I pray for is none of your business, but don't worry. I've never wasted a single prayer on you. Don't mess with this old man, if you don't like being repaid in kind.

I'm not. I'm glad she died.

Yeah, because all the confrontation should be between us. No one's stealing my thunder.

Fair enough, I can relate.  You do seem better.
