In Darwin, Australia, a 19-year old Australian man was loading wild geese into his boat when a 10-foot crocodile grabbed him and took him into the water. His 53-year-old aunt came to his rescue. She told the Northern Territory News and her story was then carried to the wire services that she hit the crocodile on the nose with her fist and cried, "Help! In the name of Jesus!" The crocodile released her nephew and he is now recovering from surgery to repair the damage. This shows that courage come in all ages. It also shows that courage springs from the love of family and power of the Lord.
