17-Y-O Who Was Shot While Praying in Her Texas Home Praises God for Survival

A 17-year-old girl who was shot while praying to God for strength inside her bedroom in Texas is now praising God for protecting her after she escaped with only a graze to her arm.

“I feel great because I know God is so great and He takes care of me. I know God is a judge and I know [that] He is going to do something for me. … I am so thankful [to] Him,” Kimberly Mendoza, 17, told ABC 13.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office told ABC 11 that the shooting happened about 11 p.m. Monday at the 14400 block of Rio Bonito. Officials report that she was kneeling down and praying when a bullet came through the wall of her home. They believe the bullet was fired from an apartment complex near her home. It landed on her blanket after grazing her.

Mendoza told ABC 13 that when she got shot, she didn’t realize what happened at first because she was praying with the lights off. She simply got up and ran after she heard something that sounded like an explosion.

It wasn’t until she was with her father that she realized she was shot.

“When I was with my dad, I told him, ‘I’m scared.’ Then I told him, ‘My arm, it hurt a lot.’ And my mom turned on the light and she see the blood,” said.
