Accident paralyzes Christian missionary who is trusting God's plan
Our take: Only seven days ago, after being hit in the head with a device he was testing for his ministry, missionary Steve Saint was instantly paralyzed from the neck down. Since then, the founder of Christian tech company I-Tec, a company that uses tech devices to share the Christian faith, has been refusing to ask "Why me?" and instead is putting his energy into continuing to give God all he can, even without being able to use his body to do it.
Homemade cards and crayon drawings lining the wall of missionary Steve Saint's hospital room show the boundless impact he's made over the years.
Saint built his I-Tec ministry on the idea of developing some of the most innovative gadgets to help share the Christian faith in otherwise untouched parts of the world.
Now unable to feed himself because of a paralyzing accident June 13, Saint is hoping advanced technology will help him walk again.
He was scheduled for surgery Tuesday to relieve pressure on his spine. Right now, a slight raise of his limp arms is about all the movement he can get his body to make.
"I can tell you I've never felt this helpless before," Saint said in a video posted to his Facebook page.
