David\’s translation helper told us a story about something really neat that happened recently at the other village where the believers were meeting together for a time of fellowship.
He said there was a lady whose baby had been sick and was having a hard time breathing. All of a sudden the baby became lifeless and started foaming at the mouth and the mother believed her to be dead. So she quickly took her baby to some men who are with another religious group in the area and asked them to pray for her. Surprisingly they told her to take her baby over to the house where the believers in Jesus were meeting and ask them to pray for her. This village has seen God do some amazing things when the believers pray, so they must have thought the baby would have a better chance if the mother took her to them. When the mother brought her baby to the house where the believers were meeting, she told them what had happened and asked them to pray for her baby. They quickly explained to her that they were just normal people, but God alone was the one with the power to heal her if it was His will and that life and death are in God\’s hands. So they prayed for the baby right then, and to everyone\’s amazement, the baby regained consciousness and started nursing. Everyone there was awed at the way God answered their prayers immediately and showed His love and power. There is still a lot of opposition to the Gospel so we are all praying that God would use this obvious answer to prayer and many others like it to draw people to Himself and show them that in Christ alone is the way the truth and the life.
