Miracles of healing and salvation were the order of the day when teams of Christians hit the streets of a West Midlands town
Legs grew and symptoms disappeared after prayer from members of various churches in Dudley, West Midlands.
The church members had come for evangelism training led by Ben Fitzgerald of Awakening Europe and hosted by Trevor and Sharon Baker of Revival Fires Church, Dudley.
If anyone doubted that Christmas had happened, they only need to look at how God’s power is still manifested today.
In this paper, we report on extraordinary healings which have happened this year in our region. We have provided X-ray evidence of shrunken cancer tumours which were called incurable.
Hundreds of people attending meetings saw those who were unable to walk unaided breaking into a run. Thanks to today’s communication it can be seen on the internet, too.
But it’s not all rosy. Christians are being persecuted as well as being healed and set free from disease and torment.

A retired legal secretary from Margate has told of her miraculous recovery from lung cancer.
Jenny Holder, 66, was diagnosed with aggressive breast cancer in 2013 and had a mastectomy. She thought it was all dealt with. But her battle with cancer was not over.
Jenny recalls: “My life gradually returned to normal after the mastectomy, but two years later I developed an irritating cough. I was unconcerned because I thought it was either pleurisy or pneumonia.”
Jenny remained unworried until she saw an advert about how a persistent cough should always be checked out with a GP. This prompted her to seek medical advice.
Knowing her history, Jenny’s doctor arranged for her to have a scan which, unfortunately, confirmed secondary cancer in the lining of her lungs. She was told it was treatable but it was not curable.
This lady tore four tendons off her right shoulder blade and 4cm of muscle under her arm 16 months earlier when picking up her grandchild. Keyhole surgery to reattach the tendons had been unsuccessful and she was 200th on a waiting list for further surgery although doctors had told her it was one of the hardest operations and success could not be guaranteed.
After John Mellor prayed for her in Jesus’s name, she was able to raise her arm and lift someone else’s baby.
Our photos show her before and after prayer: before she had been unable to lift her arm and could not even shake John’s hand because of the pain. After prayer she could raise her arms and her overjoyed face shows she had experienced a miracle
A young man has been told that hepatitis C can no longer be found in his body.
The hospital staff were amazed that their tests showed that this very dangerous disease had mysteriously disappeared from his system.
More amazing is that while this type of hepatitis can appear to diminish through drugs, the young man had not been taking anything to treat it.
