Coincidence? You be the judge. Personally, this was a miracle from God after their baptism, allowing these newly baptized safe passage in this life to live anew as Christians having passed from their old life as Muslims:
One of the new believers named Rizwan said the group was about to conclude a mass baptism for 50 Islamic converts to Christianity when Islamist militants surrounded their bus and began firing shots.
“About 50 people including baptism candidates were attending the service. We all went by a bus. After the baptism service and prayers, we all entered the bus to return back in our house church for the worship service and the Lord’s Supper. The bus was moved. Suddenly some militants reached behind us by three or more cars and started shooting with guns toward us,” Rizwan said.
He said they were terrified and were already bracing themselves for the worst when divine intervention took place. As their bus was speeding away pursued by the militants, the new converts and their leaders were surprised to see wind picking up and dust suddenly began to swirl around them.
“Suddenly we saw a giant dust storm formed behind our bus. At first we all afraid of seeing the dust storm. We thought we may not be able to go beyond and will be held by the militants. But praise the Lord! Praise the Lord again and again! We all felt that the Lord Jesus Christ appeared upon the dust storm as a Mighty and Wonderful Man showing His protecting and lovely hands toward us with a sweet smile,” Rizwan said. “Jesus saved us. He Himself blocked the road [to stop the] militants in the form of a dust storm.” (source)
God is the Creator of Heaven and Earth and all the laws that govern it. He is not bound by them, but as the Bible narrates and Christian history shows, God will work within His creation to give succor or mete out punishment to men in accordance with their faith and actions. While often times God is associated with using severe weather to punish men (such as I wrote about recently with regard to Hurricane Matthew), many times He will do the same to help men, such as when God parted the Red Sea to allow the Hebrews to cross in the Book of Exodus.
