Here’s the testimony of an incredible ‘creative miracle’. A creative miracle is when God does the impossible and re-grows dead or missing tissue-like a missing arm or in this case replaces dead lung tissue.
This is the story of a little boy named Jacob who was one day in bed with life threatening lung disease and cardio complications and the next weekend boogie boarding at the beach on a fine warm Southern California spring day.
It is also a praise report of provision for the whole family during the crisis, and a story of unseen prayers of regular folks like you praying for healing and provision. The following is a first-hand account from Jacob’s mother:
PRAISE GOD !!!
Jacob had his appointment with the Pulmonologist this morning at CHOC. Dr. Y. was STUNNED by the incredible difference in his CT Scan!!!!
The prior CT Scan showed his left lung was 90% filled with Nasty Battle-Droids…I mean Pneumatoceles. The Doctors could not see ANY healthy lung tissue. They “hoped” if they did surgery to remove the dead lung tissue and the HUGE Pneumatoceles they may be able to salvage a portion of his lung and healthy lung tissue “might” re-grow.
Also, the border of Jacob’s lung was so damaged that it was allowing his lung to push into his heart causing pain. The Doctor’s were worried that Jacob’s dead left lung would damage his healthy heart. That is why then called the heart and lung surgical expert, Dr. Palafox. If they were removing the lung and the heart had been compromised he would be the best man to take care of them both while he was inside Jacob’s chest. They planned to remove the “dead-lung” to save the heart. You have two lungs and can live with only one…the heart is a non-negotiable.
The healthy lung tissue is now THERE and the Pneumatoceles are NOT!!
God did not need to wait for surgery to clear anything out of His way… He just created NEW HEALTHY lung tissue just like HE did when he formed Jacob’s lungs originally 8-years ago!! The border of Jacob’s lung is now strong and his heart is not being touched in any way. Praise GOD!!

Here’s an article posted in Ministry Today Magazine by Hope Flinchbaugh– “Miracles in Mozambique”. It tells the story of the revival started by the Bakers in Mozambique:
The deaf hear, the lame walk, the blind see, the dead are raised to life, and tens of thousands have surrendered their lives to Christ–all of this is happening in the southeast African country of Mozambique, a nation suffering the squalor of extreme poverty in the aftermath of a prolonged civil war.
When missionaries Heidi and Rolland Baker of California arrived in Mozambique in 1995, they struggled to begin a church and a dilapidated orphanage housing 80 children, a center previously run by communist leaders. Today the Bakers’ Iris Ministries (IM) cares for thousands of orphans and is approaching the point of having a church in every single village in large areas of central Mozambique and southern Malawi.

Nearly 10,000 attended a pastor’s conference in Cairo, Egypt conducted by evangelist Marilyn Hickey (From Charisma Mag-Link NLA). That in itself was said to be a miracle—the largest gathering of Christians ever in this ancient city.
However, a miracle of the Biblical kind occurred during lunch. 3,500 boxed-lunches from KFC were ordered, delivered to the conference, and distributed to the crowd. But there were far more in attendance than they had prepared for. Another 2,400 were supplied with box lunches that miraculously appeared out of nowhere:
After the food was completely distributed, and after the crowd swelled to about 5,000, she said volunteers were astonished to return to what should’ve been a room of empty tables to discover 1,200 more lunches. She said after they handed out the mysterious extras, another 1,200 appeared, leaving a surplus of food and dumbfounded witnesses. Hickey’s staff called it a “loaves and fishes” miracle.
“I am fully convinced that this was a supernatural occurrence,” Hickey told Charisma.
“It is something I have believed to see on my ministry and am overjoyed that it happened.”
The miracle was observed and verified by Egyptian and even non-Christians sources—the lunches were handed out by local volunteers and left everyone involved including many non-Christians marveling at what had happened.
Here’s a powerful devotional I received today from Charisma On-line:
Today’s message is from Mrs. Gertrude Reidt.
One time in Africa thirty medicine men gathered to put a curse on a missionary and his family. It was a thirty-day contest between the medicine men and Jehovah God. The missionary, for some reason, said that he could not leave his station and call for help, so he decided to stay there and fight it out. The medicine men did put every type of curse on the man and his children. His children did get sick—but they prayed through together and the children became well again.
The medicine men were so desperate; they couldn’t fail. The last night of the thirty-day contest, the men came with their torches to burn down the grass huts, and to burn out the missionary. What did they meet? Tall men in white garments with great swords drawn so that they could not break through. Prevailing prayer—what a power there is in intercession. It is a great weapon in spiritual warfare.
READ PSALM 34
Lord, thank You for the powerful protection of Your angelic host! In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Here is the testimony of some teens from North Carolina who went on a ministry trip to Guatemala. In one village they visited in the home of a young woman who had given birth to a still born baby the day before. They proceeded to pray for the dead infant:
“We prayed for thirty to forty minutes.
At the end of that time, Julia screamed out to God, telling Him that she believed with all of her heart that this baby could be raised from the dead. After Julia screamed out, everyone was silent. We were quietly interceding and praying.
Within a few minutes, the baby started moving. Then the baby coughed and began crying. The mother came rushing into the room. She was screaming, what is going on? No one could answer her. We were just staring at the baby, who had come back to life. The mother asked us again, what is going on? She began crying as she saw that her baby was alive.
She ran out of the house and banged on every door in the village, telling all of the people that God is real because her baby was alive. Within about thirty minutes, the baby’s skin tone and movements had become completely normal.”
What an incredible experience! These young Christians will never be the same and obviously the Young woman, her baby, and that village also. Praise God!
I found the link to this on iamhealed.net blog. Kathi Sharpe mentions in the post that the teens had watched some of the Lakeland meetings on GodTV before they left on the mission and that’s where they got the idea to pray for the dead baby.
