She wrote: “This comes to let those that have been calling and sending messages to know that I am alive. It’s a miracle that my family lost no life. I was in the church with my husband and kids when the explosion happened.

“I lost my house and my beauty complex with everything in it. No pin was saved and two cars too, but I thank God for life. Material things can be replaced, but no one can substitute experience.

“My neighbors in the house all died. It was a colossal disaster. I am still in shock, but I’ll be fine. I remain grateful to God for life.

“My beauty complex and my house were directly opposite Bethlehem Girls’ College, and the explosion happened right in front of the school. Everything went down. I thank God for life.
