Martha Fumer

(SNO) — A woman from Bexon is giving credit to her rosary for protecting her from a bullet and saving her life, MBC Prime has reported.

The television networks reported that Martha Fumer, 59, was sitting on her porch on March 16 praying when a shooting took place nearby.

She was injured in the incident.

Speaking in Creole she explained during that she heard loud explosions and felt something like blood on her neck. Upon examination, she said she realized her hands were red with blood.

Fumer was taken to hospital by a private vehicle and underwent surgery the next day.

She now believes the beads of the rosary saved her from her close encounter with death.

“I never miss my rosary on me,” she said in Creole. “I am always here praying with my rosary in my hands. I can say, it’s the rosary that saved me.”

Fumer is expected to undergo another surgery for her injuries.

One man has been arrested following the shooting incident.

  1. While I applaud the fact that the rosary may have saved her life, one has to question whether this lady is really 59. I think the reporter may have gotten the numbers mixed up. There is no way this lady is 59 years old. She looks way older than 59. This woman is most probably in her late 70's.
    I suggest they do a fact and age check to ascertain this woman's real age.She looks nothing like a 59-year-old. No way. Bravo to her in having her life saved by a rosary. Well done! But I still insist she looks older than 59.

    March 24

    New Testament Verse of the Day:
    "Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing."
    –John 15:5

  4. This is what happens when people pray daily; God hears and answers; this is faith
    at work. Matthew 9: 20 the woman touched the Hem of His garment, and was healed
    right away. Back then, a woman was not supposed to touch the Rabbi, but she was one
    of strong faith - she reached out and dared the conventional wisdom - and was healed.
    Today, like my old grand mother before, never parted from her Rosery, but believed that
    she could touch the love of God by the only instrument available to her, an earthly instrument
    and God was touched by her love and her faith in God. God saved her. HE SAID "ONLY BELIEVE".

  6. HAVE WE ALL MISSED THE MARK??? BELIEVE ME - IT IS ALL "FAITH" NOTHING MORE, NOTHING LESS.
    FAITH, BECAUSE SHE BELIEVES IN "GOD" period BY FAITH, SHE BELIEVED THAT IF SHE ASKED, SHE
    WOULD RECEIVE; SHE KNEW THAT. CHRIST SAID - "ONLY BELIEVE" - SHE DID JUST THAT, BY FAITH.

    i AM THE LAST PERSON IN THE WORLD TO EVER BELIEVE IN STATUES, ROSERYS OR ANY RIDICULOUS
    ARTIFACTS. GOD IS A SPIRIT, WE WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH. GOD IS SO GOOD; ONE MAY BE AN ATHEIST OR AN UNBELIEVER ALL HIS LIFE, BUT ON HIS DEATH BED ASKED TO BE FORGIVEN AND CALL ON THE LORD - BY FAITH YOU'RE SAVED. REMEMBER THE ONE ON THE CROSS NEXT TO JESUS???
    TODAY, PLEAD THE BLOOD OF JESUS, ASK HIM TO COME INTO YOUR HEART, AND BE SAVED IN JESUS.

  7. I just want to say that GOD is good, and her belief is ok, it's her right to believe whatever she wants. However, i do not believe that her age is correct, she can never be 59.

  9. Basically she was praying, because the Rosary is a prayer or prayers..so i will say she was in conversation with GOD, using her Rosary, this is what she knows,..FATHER have mercy on her if she truly beleives her rosary saved, but i believe deep down in her soul thats what she means...the prayers ....her faith in GOD saved her

  14. Rosary saved her life? What a bunch of Balderdash, woman God sent his Angel's to protect you, not no piece of toy worn by no cult.she is 59? Damn , life really does do a number on some people, if you start by giving God the praises due to him and him alone, maybe you'll look better, oh for the love of Christ, some people are so brainwashed that they cannot see the truth.

    • To be honest, I don't believe that she believes it was the rosary. She prays every day (I suppose she prays in faith). So her faith/obedience saved her. The thing is, that generation may not be as articulate as we may be, so their expressions of faith may be explained by something tangible like the rosary.

    • Was it necessary to be so harsh when referencing her age? We all don’t age similarly. She said she prays daily so obviously she believes that God saved her. The rosary happened to cause the bullet to ricochet which is what she’s able to identify as being her protection.
