People work to save one old church in Texas. It is “The Alamo.” Part of a wall is under the ground. It could crumble.

 

Diggers found musket balls. Could they be from the guns of a long-ago battle?

 

READ MORE: The Alamo was a Spanish Mission in San Antonio, Texas. Texas was part of Mexico. But Texans wanted to be free. Some fought against Mexican soldiers from inside the Alamo. Most of them were killed. Other Texans fought against Mexico the next month and won. Texans say, “Remember the Alamo.” It is part of their state’s history. That’s why finding musket balls is exciting news. God comforted His people when they feared their enemies. He says in 2 Chronicles 20:15, “Do not be afraid, for the battle is not yours but God’s.”
