Flavia, from Argentina, shares her story.

In this month’s magazine, we promised to share stories of youth who conquered hard times. Here’s the first one.

“This year, I lost my leg in a train accident. It happened when I chased someone who stole my phone. I’m not sure exactly what happened, but suddenly I was below the train, yelling for help. I woke up in the hospital a few days later. I learned that I had lost my right leg.

“During my time in the hospital I was very emotional, and I cried many times. But my family, friends, and Church family were always with me. They always helped me and distracted me.

“I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ also helped me. Before a surgery, I always said a personal prayer that everything would be all right and that I wouldn’t be afraid. Every time I felt hopeless, the Lord was there!

“I believe that my recovery is a miracle. I continue to get better and am striving to press forward. I know I can do all things through Christ.”

Wow, thanks for sharing, Flavia! We’ll share another story next week, so stay tuned.
