Have you witnessed any Christian miracles? Today miracles still do happen and I want to share one that happened recently in Turkey. Dan and Devri Wickwires, who are missionaries, share this story:

Several weeks ago, a family from Toysa were told that if someone needed healing they should visit our church, the Batikent Protestant Church in Ankara. The family was concerned for their 40 year old relative, a man mentally disturbed and habitually walking the streets as a crazy man.

The man was filthy with a long unkempt beard, urine stained pants, and fingernails over an inch long. He could not talk, he was not in his right mind, and he had been in this condition for about 5-6 years. The relatives asked our Pastor if there was anything he could do to help. Our Pastor said, “Jesus can help, but you must believe that He can help.” The relatives said, “If we didn’t believe He could help would we have come 5 hours to see you?” Our Pastor then gave the man a long hug, placed his fingers in his ears and prayed for him. When he finished praying the crazy man surprised everyone by asking, “Why did you put your fingers in my ears?” He could speak!

Later, for the first time in 5 years the man was able to tell them his name. A week later the church received a phone call from his relatives saying that the man was now cleaned up, no longer wandering the streets, and still in his right mind!

The interesting thing is that the day before this family came to our church; the missionary pastor had just made a motorcycle trip to their town to meet with another seeker. When the family of the healed man learned this they asked the missionary pastor to visit them also!

We are praying that God will use the testimony of this man’s healing to open up the people of Toysa to the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

There are many Christian miracles today. God is the same yesterday, today and forever! In the Gospel of John, there are numerous miracles that Jesus did. (The first one is seen in John 2 where Jesus turns the water into wine at the wedding in Cana)

The greatest miracle of all was when Jesus came to this earth in human form so He could die for our sins!! (See John, Chapter 3, verse 16) Don’t you want to know Him?
