LOST ENGAGEMENT RING IN LONG BRANCH NJ FOUND BY MATT ST.GERMAIN/DENNIS BURLINGAME
8/9/20 I was made aware of a lost engagement ring set by fellow ringfinder Edward Cropski. I promptly reached out to Nykia to gather more information on how it had been lost and where. She was at the beach with her husband Ryan and various family members. While she was in the water with her sister they both got hit by a big wave and were pushed into each other and knocked down. After getting out of the water she realized her ring was gone. The family searched frantically for hours digging around in the sand with their hands but it was nowhere to be found. I made arrangements with her to go out there the following day for the late afternoon low tide with my friend and also a ringfinder Dennis Burlingame. Her and her husband were planning to meet us there on their way back up north from AC. Me and Dennis got there a few hours before low tide and began our search. The waves were pretty bad but we had to try. I got right into the water to search the drop off while Dennis searched the bottom of the slope. I was getting knocked around pretty good and decided to get out and wait for the tide to go down some more. Dennis had gone back to my truck to use his phone for something important. While he was gone i decided to search the slope more and a bit higher up. Within about 10 minutes of searching there i got a very nice signal. After a few scoops i had Nykia’s ring in my scoop! As i was walking back up to the dry sand a woman had asked me if i found anything. I then told her yes i did, I found the ring i came here to look for that a woman had lost yesterday. She asked me if she could see it and so i showed it to her. She was amazed. At that very moment Nykia and Ryan walked up to me and realized “Oh my god you found it?!” They were blown away with Joy and surprise! I happily accepted the great big hug Nykia gave me! They told me it was pretty much where she had fallen and the waves were much worse the day it happened. Another happy ending! I also had her Father Steve write me a very nice message that he said i can share with everyone so here it is:
SOMETIMES YOU GOT TO SHOUT OUT PRAISE REPORTS FROM ROOFTOPS.
So my daughter Nykia will celebrate her third year of marriage on September 3rd and celebrated her birthday this weekend. We all went to the beach on Sunday to close out the weekend of celebration. While in the water her engagement ring somehow came off (she somehow realized it was gone as she struggled to keep her wedding band from following it off into the sea). Needless to say we were all distraught for her. A beautiful weekend turned suddenly sour. We searched as best we could for it… to no avail. After a futile search and FERVENT PRAYER we all left the beach not in the frame of mind we had arrived with. The next morning Nykia went on line requesting info on how to find things lost on the beach or in the ocean at the Jersey shore. A person responded to her inquiry and put her in touch with another person who uses a metal detector to search beaches. This person asked pertinent questions about the location, time and description of the ring. He promised to search at low tide today. Nykia and her husband met him at the beach today only moments after his search ended at about 6pm. Much to her surprise he had found her ring and returned it without demanding a reward or finders fee. (WHAT) Of course they were overwhelmed and ecstatic. (HOW!) She said, “Dad I could not help but hug him.” He graciously accepted her hug. He remarked that no one does that especially during these Corvid 19 times. (ONLY GOD!) Of course they gave him something for his assistance.
NOW HERE IS THE PRAISE REPORT: GOD ANSWERS PRAYER. HE DISPATCHES ANGELS TO HELP HIS OWN IN IMPOSSIBLE SITUATIONS. THE RING WAS LOST IN THE OCEAN FULL OF WATER AND HUNDREDS OF MILLION OF GRAINS OF SAND. THE RING WAS FOUND. GOD SPECIALIZES IN THE IMPOSSIBLE.
DO YOU HEAR ME?
HE SPECIALIZES IN THE IMPOSSIBLE. THE WORD SAYS THAT IF YOU ASK ANYTHING IN HIS NAME HE WILL DO IT FOR YOU.
To Nykia’s angel, “Through the Grace of God you have blessed my daughter, my baby girl. I will forever be indebted to you for your thoughtfulness, your humility and your loving kindness. THANK YOU and BLESS YOU.
