What’s the Nimrod Miracle? It’s One of Minnesota’s Best Stories
Up North a ways is Nimrod, Minnesota. There's one bar, 69 residents, and one life-saving-beer drinker from Pine River (that's about 30 minutes east by car, which is like 10 minutes in Rochester). This is their story...the Nimrod Miracle.
According to the Duluth News Tribune, about 2 years ago Kristin Day met a stranger at the town's only bar. As she was having a beer, she noticed he had a fistula, a thing in his arm that's used to hook up to a dialysis machine. The stranger's kidneys were toast, and after chatting for a couple hours, Kristin Day got his contact info. Secretly, got a bunch of tests done, found out she could be his donor and then offered him one of her kidneys.
Just like that?
Just like that.
It took about 6 months altogether, and now the stranger is alive and well, and Kristin Day is back to living life just like before. Only, as a superhero, because she literally donated life. If you'd like to Donate Life, just click HERE. And if you are a donor, please, let your family know.
LITTLE KNOWN NIMROD FACTS:
Nimrod - It's a Biblical name. The son of Cush, his grampa was Ham. His great grampa was Noah! It makes sense then that a miracle happened with all that liquid surrounding them in Nimrod's only bar. He was a mighty hunter before the Lord.
Nimrod Definition - It means a skillfu hunter, a tyrant, AND an inept person. Maybe because Nimrod wasn't always the nices leader and tried to build the Tower of Babel and that did NOT sit well with God.
How do you get to Nimrod? You pretend you're going to Little Falls, but keep going north for about...forever...turn left at Motley, and right just before Verndale (if you hit Wadena, y'better turn around then, ok, cuz you went to far, then).
