At 3:00 a.m. on March 1st, 2008, Terry Caffey awoke to find his daughter’s boyfriend standing in his bedroom with a gun. An instant later the teen opened fire, killing Terry’s wife, two sons and wounding him twelve times, before setting the house ablaze.
Terry knew it was too late to save his family, but he had one thing to do before he died. He fought to stay awake and escaped the burning house through a bathroom window. As he stumbled and crawled 400 yards through pitch darkness to the neighbor’s house, Terry asked God to keep him alive long enough to identify the killers, then to let him die.
God allowed him to identify the murderers, but He didn’t let Terry die.
