A Facebook video of 111-year-old North Carolina resident, Hester Ford, has received nearly 10 million views!
The matriarch was being interviewed on a television network for her birthday by reporter, Kristen Hampton, when Hester did something sweetly impressive for age.
“Time has taken its toll on Mrs. Ford, but one thing remains intact and untouched by 111 years of life; her faith,” Kristen wrote on her Facebook video of the feat.
“While we visited, Ford was able to recite Psalm 23 word for word and ended with a smile. Her family says her strong faith has followed her throughout her life, and they give credit to God for seeing her through so many years.”
What makes it amazing is that Hester has been diagnosed with dementia and yet is able to retain her memory of what she has absorbed from God’s Word.
Hester, has 12 children, 53 grandchildren, 120 great-grandchildren and 126 great-great grandchildren (WOW!).
As one commenter said on the video, “This women has gained wisdom that brings salvation by faith. Her mind has retained what is most important in life: to trust and fear GOD.”
