Gary Wood, eighteen at the time, was driving with his younger sister Sue along a dark street in their hometown. The date was December 23, 1966. They were heading home, singing Christmas songs, as the car knifed through the darkness. Suddenly, Sue spotted the left end of an illegally parked tow truck sticking into their lane of traffic. Her scream pierced the night only a moment before the car crashed headlong into the trucks protruding tail.
Join Dr. Wood as he recaps his miraculous experience of A Place Called Heaven. He overcomes medical mysteries and unfriendly bikers, all the while thanking God for his inspired life. His story also inspired songwriter David Ingles to write a song about Gary's testimony. It is called You've Got to Go Back, She's Using that Name on his album I Sure Love You. Gary Wood was outstanding as a soloist for three years in New Mexico and was preparing himself to preach and sing the Gospel by attending Wayland Baptist University in Plainview, TX.
