The Sampson Parker StoryBook - 2014
Trapped in a burning piece of farm equipment, Sampson Parker cut off his arm with a pocket knife in order to save his life. This is the story of Sampson Parker's strong faith and amazing will to survive against impossible odds. With his hand and arm pulled deep into a mechanical corn picker, Sampson struggled against the machine for two hours, trying to free his arm. When his efforts to stop the chain drive which kept forcing his hand and arm deeper into the machine resulted in a fire, Sampson made the only choice available. Exhausted and crying out to God for strength, he had to sever his arm with his pocket knife or burn to death. A Christian before the accident, Unthinkable Choice is more than the story of his life-and-death struggle. It is the story of how God used this tragic incident to change not only Sampson's life, but also the lives of those around him. Unthinkable Choice is the true story of one man's faith in God, his family's love, and his road to physical and spiritual wholeness. It is the story of how his struggle increased his faith and changed the direction of his life.
