Tragedy was real to a courageous mother named Faith Wambua-Luedeling when in the 2013 Westgate Mall, Kenya, she shielded her nine year old daughter and 21 month old son from the murderous terrorist attacks.

On a Saturday journey to the mall Faith took her young children to buy flowers and to take her husband by an anniversary present. Just two days later was their second anniversary.

Prior to entering the mall, she had parked her car in the Westgate cellar. Faith will hear loud sounds when entering the building and people yell. She also figured there was an earthquake and the mall was going to collapse. When she realized that running wouldn't be an option, she was led by her instincts to hit and pinch her kids on the floor in the open field, where they couldn't fall.

"I didn't know where to run to. I found myself in the corner near the service counter. And that's just where we laid down" she said at the corner near the service counter.

Then Faith realized it was gunshots that she heard. At first she assumed it was a robbery, thinking that it would end fast until the gangsters had finished their work. However, hours passed and bullets had been fired still. This was when Faith was playing dead and helping her kids to do the same.

She was not conscious of the fact that over ten terrorists had targeted the center and carried out their mission measures from there. She still tried to keep her kids quiet so that no one might find that they were alive.

"More sporadic shooting was taking place. Though I could not look up, it was obvious that the problem was much bigger than we thought at first. My daughter asked me comically if this was the perfect situation for us to hide, while I was working in accordance with my instructions," said Faith.

She said a shootout stop must take place before the place exploded again and she was all the more afraid of them.

"There were times I could hear the bullet casing dropping on the floor near us We could perceive the gun powder and we were really scared"

Her nine-year-old baby was curious and kept asking questions. Faith said she knew not what was happening. She told her kids to be calm and to be quiet. It was something so simple, but especially for her kid. It seemed impossible.

She said to them Just don't look up. Don't look around"

Faith continued to sing and pray for her daughter in the expectation that her ordeal would be over. She said she prayed, and she even pleaded with God to unintentionally let her children survive.

"I thought my daughter would cater to the attackers where we were, and prayed over too loud. My children's nature is very active and I was shocked to see them sit so quiet for hours. Even for several hours, the baby managed to sleep entirely," she said.

She felt God's hand that day, said Faith. The presence of God was so much with them that in the midst of turmoil the family felt peaceful. Faith has described it as a protection.

Faith tells us that a man tried prematurely to get her to safety. The man called her, said "mama, mama" and she looked up and told him to get up and go. But they got up and they immediately followed more shootings and they thought their cover was blown up.' The mother came back with her kids and let them play dead again.

Faith heard the same call for the second time and refused to bring his head up in fear of the enemy attempting to get there for the second time.

A couple of minutes later she felt a hand pushing her to crawl out.

"In the end, I looked up and saw the whole military and police battalion. Then I realized it was probably a police officer the guy who urged us to leave. "When I followed the kid, the officer took him from behind forcefully," she said.

Another officer grabbed her daughter and led her to security.

"I was only able to shed tears because I couldn't believe we were free." It's only a miracle, according to Faith.

"I have heard of wonders, but now I have one's eyewitness. The police officer who sacrificed his life to survive enough, I can't thank. One day we hope to meet him and express our gratitude personally. We thank even our friends and other people who have been called to verify our health and we don't even know. We extend our hearts to those who have lost or hurt their loved ones," she said.

The attack killed a total of 67 innocents. Just nine terrorists were arrested by the police. After the incident, Faith showed that she was frightened and told her daughter to hear gunshots in her sleep.

Sometimes we face difficult circumstances in life and do all we can to make it happen. But at that time we realize that our human power is limited but God's power is endless. Only by God's grace could a baby and his sister remain still almost five hours in silence. Faith confided in God and His children to protect it and He.
