Brussels Attack Survivor: Experience Strengthened My Faith in God
An American Mormon missionary who suffered numerous injuries in the Brussels terror attack is now speaking out.
19-year-old Mason Wells, who was present at the Boston Marathon during the 2013 bombing and was also in France during the bombings and mass shootings last November, said that he was very close when both bombs went off at Zaventem Airport, calling it "a surreal experience."
Wells suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon, shrapnel injures, as well as second- and third-degree burns on his face and hands.
He was with three other Mormon missionaries at the time - two Americans and one French - and they were also injured in the attack.
"The four of us were very, very lucky," Wells said. "The others had burn wounds, decently bad burn wounds ... But the four of us were very grateful to have been protected, to have been so close and to have been so lucky to not have taken more injuries."
Wells added that the experience has strengthened his faith in God.
"I know that He does listen to the prayers, and that the prayers the people are doing right now, they make a difference. Because I felt them."
