Man Donates Kidney to Church Member

Ad Feedback

Kidneys are often donated between relatives and loved ones, but one Idaho man recently went a step further -- donating the organ to a complete stranger.

David Hendricks was talking to his pastor after a church service, and that's when he said something miraculous happened.

"In the middle of that conversation, for whatever reason, well the Lord knows the reason, I said to him, "Hey, by the way, Kurt needs a kidney," said Jeff Fadness, pastor of Calvary Chapel in Pocatello, Idaho.

"So I asked him, 'Kurt who?' and he said, 'Kurt Davis.' And I [thought], 'Okay, whoever that is,'" Hendricks recalled.

Davis said he's still in awe about the donation.

"I'm still speechless," he said.

The chance that two strangers are a match for an organ donation is small -- but Hendricks and Davis are.

While many are calling it a lucky coincidence, Hendricks said it has nothing to do with luck, but everything to do with God's plan.
