"More than four decades ago, her excruciating pain was exposed in a photo that made headlines around the world... It's a moment forever captured, an iconic image that has come to define the horror and violence of the Vietnam War: Nine-year-old Kim Phuc running in agony moments after napalm bombs fell from the sky, bringing hellish fire that burned away her clothing and seared deep into her skin."
Left for dead in a hospital morgue, Kim miraculously survived. But, this was only the beginning of her heroic story. "Only now is she revealing the depth of her scarring --- both to body and soul."
The author of Fire Road, Kim Phuc, the Napalm Girl, will tell her story of unexpected survival, a life in constant pain as the tool of a communist regime, love, family, and the unshakeable, life-altering faith that set her free.
Mrs. Vicky has a daily ministry on Facebook called "Words of Encouragement" to talk to ladies across the country, giving advice, prayer and encouragement everyday. Her husband, Pastor Mike Mutchler, would sum things up this way, "We are just 1 flawed couple doing the best we know to do while serving a perfect Saviour. We are sinners saved by grace trying to do our best to help others."
Together, they have been doing just that, helping others, for over 40 years. Mike & Vicky have worked year after year to serve people and the Savior. Mrs. Vicky taught children’s church every service for 15 years and home schooled for 6 years. She taught at Grandview Christian Academy for 27 years.
She hosted and fed almost 75 people a week that came to her home for Thursday night soul-winning, Friday night teen soul-winning and Saturday morning bus route meetings. Today, they still open their home to host and feed three or four couples each Sunday after church, the deacons once a month and ladies' Bible study each week. Mrs. Vicky continues to teach the Sunday night children's service and disciples many ladies in the church. Mike and Vicky are and have been given to ministry and people.
