Karen Snedeker is on the show today to talk about her near death experience. At the end of a mission trip to Brazil, a truck going at full speed struck their car while they were stopped alongside the freeway. The majority of the impact was on the side in which she was sitting. A horrific accident, where the car had been crushed, Karen came out of that accident without any external bleeding, although she sustained 7 fractures in her pelvis, and 30% of her femur was displaced. Her injuries healed without surgery. While an incredible story of survival, her journey also brings up the power of faith, prayer, community, and the ineffable.
Karen is a Santa Cruz STEAM and Math educator and she has participated, lead, and hosted numerous mission trips in response to her passions of connecting with diverse cultures and deepening her faith.
