"I looked up and here was a red car flying at us. It was not on the ground it was air born and the next thing I knew, in the matter of seconds how life totally changed for myself and for my son Jacob as I crawled out to find my son and daughter on the road and my wife in driver seat and realizing that they were all gone as the paramedics got there and there was no helping them,” said Geske.
The accident is still under investigation. Pastor Geske doesn't know why the 62-year old man from Topeka crossed the grassy median and hit his family. A question he still wants answers to.
“It was a very sad day. In the matter of seconds the life I knew was gone, the beautiful bride of over 16 years gone, my precious children gone,” Geske said.
The members of the congregation are in awe, inspired that a man who lost his wife and two of his children returned to the pulpit a month later.
“It's been a joy to have him back onto the pulpit and ministering to all of us as we try to minister to him. He's looking out for us as much as we are looking out for him,” said one church member.
Pastor Geske's son Jacob sits in the front row of children's sharing time, watching his dad whose faith only grew after the accident.
“Every day Jacob and I talk about where they are and he knows, they are with Jesus,” said Geske.
A horrible situation made better for Geske by his faith in God and Heaven.
“I can't wait to see my Savior again and most of all my wife and children,” said Geske.
