I study at a military school, where we are always quite busy with many activities and we practice many sports. About two years ago, during a basketball game with my colleagues, I jumped to catch a rebound, and when I returned to the ground I twisted my foot and fell. Immediately my teammates came to assist me, and they helped me get up. I asked them to let me sit a moment, and I told them that I was all right. My friends didn't understand what I was thinking. I knew that God was helping me and caring for me right where I was. But they wanted to help in the manner that they thought best.

In accordance with the rules of the school, I had to go to the infirmary, where a doctor examined my foot and said that I had to go to hospital to have a cast put on it. My foot was very painful, so I contacted my father and asked him to come get me at the school.
