INTERMEDIATE LEVEL 2 – Lesson 8 for Students


VOCABULARY: ice, underneath, emergency people, survive, accident 

STORY: There was a boy. He was 13 years old. One day he and his friends were out playing on the ice. It was a warm day. While the boys were playing on the ice someone told them to get off of the ice, that it was not cold enough for the ice to hold them. But the boys were having so much fun playing and were not paying attention. Suddenly the ice broke and the boys fell into the water. One boy got trapped underneath the ice. When the emergency people came to save him, it took them a long time to find the boy under the water. When they finally pulled him out of the water, he was not breathing. At the hospital, the doctors told his parents that he would not survive. But the parents had a very strong faith and they kept praying and asking everyone in the city to pray for their little boy. They knew that this could not be the end for their boy. They knew that he was meant for more. They prayed and prayed and asked the Lord to save their son. The doctors said that even if the boy did wake up, he would never be the same. The doctors believed that there had been too much damage to his brain when he had stopped breathing for so long. But the parents did not listen to the doctors. They believed in a God that performs miracles. After many days of praying and seeking the Lord, their son woke up. He had survived. Not only had he survived but he was the same boy that he was before the accident. The family knew that the Lord had done a miracle in saving the boy and bringing him back the same as he was before.
