According to AdventistReview.org, Gaspard is an Adventist believer who was overseeing the holiday luncheon at the San Bernardino County Health Department center where 14 people were killed at the hands of two people that opened fire.

Gaspard’s mother, Diane, said that it was God’s mercy that saved her daughter’s life Wednesday.

“We believe that because of her loving kindness the shooter did not kill her. He stood over her and shot her. He could easily have aimed at her head but shot her in the leg instead.” Diane Gaspard said.

Amanda is in the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and suffered shrapnel wounds to her head.

Thursday, her mother said Amanda was stable.

The President of the Adventist World Church agrees with Amanda Gaspard, and says that the tragedy is foreshadowing Jesus’ return.
