Tricia had decided to die.
Living in constant fear of her violent father, believing his constant yelling that she was worthless. Eventually bleeding out her pain through cutting wasn’t enough.
So another beautiful Indian girl was planning her suicide. Someone invited her to an On Eagles’ Wings® event in a nearby reservation village. There she heard a Hope Story – shared by an abused young woman who came to Jesus the night she had the gun to her head.
And Tyona gave her heart to Jesus that night – just before she was going to end her life.
Fast forward three years. To a reservation thousands of miles from Tricia’s home. Where she was sharing her story as part of this summer’s On Eagles’ Wings® outreach.
