10-Year-Old Boy Taken Hostage For 30 Hours: ‘I Just Knew God Had Me’

This boy’s faith truly saved his life!

10-Year-Old Boy Taken Hostage For 30 Hours: ‘I Just Knew God Had Me’

Who would have thought a young boy could survive a face-off with an armed man? Yet not only did 10-year-old Sincere Trammell (pictured below) stand up to a gunman, he bravely stopped this man from committing suicide by telling him, that God would give him a second chance at life.

The hostage crisis began when when 31-year-old, Donald Gazaway, Jr., demanded $10,000 from Sincere’s mother and she refused. Sincere witnessed the ordeal with his own eyes as the gunman held a gun to his mother’s head.

“When I walked in there, I saw him pointing a gun at my mom’s head and he kept saying, ‘Give me $10,000 now’,” Sincere said.

He tried to get away, but the man chased him into his room, “Because he thought I had a phone, and then she [my mom] ran out the door,” he added.

Shortly after, the authorities arrived and a standoff began. The ordeal lasted for 30 hours during which Sincere was used as a human shield several times while the gunman shot at the SWAT members outside.

A reporter asked Sincere what kept him calm during the incident and he confidently answered, “I just knew God had me.”

Feeling defeated by the run-in, the gunman almost gave up. He wanted to kill himself, but Sincere told him, that his son and two daughters wouldn’t like that and God would give him a second chance at life.

It is rare to see a 10-year-old boy so calm in a crisis like this where his life could have been taken away at any minute, had the gunman decided to shoot him. This young man is truly remarkable.

Praise God that Sincere made it out alive and God used this dreadful kidnapping incident to make him as brave as a lion and point people towards God.  Amazing!
