“’IT’S A MIRACLE ANYONE SURVIVED …I’ve never seen an airplane so devastated.’ … That is how one official ‘reacted to a light plane crash that killed three (St. Louis) area Baptist ministers and seriously injured another during an attempted landing …’ at the Spirit of St. Louis Airport in west St. Louis County.”
Such are quotes from the book that Pastor Ken and wife Beth Spilger wrote about their powerful story, titled Plucked From the Burning! Embracing God’s Purpose – available at www.reflectionspublictions.com.
Also from the back cover of their book:
“In 1980 Ken Spilger was sole survivor of a small plane crash. He experienced serious third-degree burns on 30% of his body, which required extensive skin graphs, surgery, and months of therapy. Ken and Beth have been married 40 years and have co-authored Plucked from the Burning to document God’s appeal to them to embrace His purpose.”
It is additionally impressive that their seven children each wrote a brief endorsement of the book, also appearing on the back cover. I would think five of their seven children are especially thankful, for they were born after their father’s survival of plane crash!
Ken Spilger has served as Pastor of the Grace Baptist Church in North St. Louis County — located on the west edge of the Mississippi River — for more than 30 years. (See www.gbcstl.com)
Be inspired by Ken and Beth Spilger’s story and book … as was I.
