Today my grand-daughter Michelle held a miracle in her arms. We were ministering to little children in a barrio where people of limited resources live and where the King's Castle kids do a Bible class complete with breakfast every Saturday morning. I got there first by car. Michelle came walking along with the team who went through the area between the many apartments to round up the kids.
When I saw Michelle approaching with the others from a distance I saw that she was carrying a baby girl in her arms. With the telephoto lens I shot her picture. Later Missionaries Shari and Kim Babcock told us the story of this little two year old whose name is Martina.
A year ago Martina fell off her 2nd story balcony onto the hard ground below. She lay there unconscious and her mother came down screaming. The little kids that come to the open air Bible story every Saturday gathered around her and prayed for her. Her mother was frantic as medics lifted the tiny limp body into an ambulance. The little kids told her, “Don’t worry! We prayed for her and Jesus is going to heal her.” She was X-rayed and thoroughly checked out. She regained consciousness and was found to be perfectly well with no serious signs of the fall. When they brought her back from the hospital, the little kids of the Bible class said to her mother, “Why did you worry? We told you that Jesus would heal her?”
This morning these children petted Perfume and met Felipe for the first time.
They sat transfixed during his Bible story.
