"There's a Reason It Wasn't My Time": After Surviving 100-Foot Fall, Mormon Man Prepares for Mission

“I looked up at the sky and said, ‘Heavenly Father, get me out of here,’” Brig Murdock said, remembering his 100-foot fall down a slot canyon.

It’s not every day someone can suffer a 100-foot fall and be rock climbing again less than six months later.

“There’s a reason it wasn’t my time. The biggest thing I’ve realized is that I have a purpose here now,” Brig Murdock, a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, told St. George News.

Murdock's recovery has been “life-changing and inspiring for him,” and he is now preparing to serve a full-time LDS mission, the article said.
