This Easter we are sharing one of the most amazing testimonies from Brazil about the death of a baby! It’s beautiful and uplifting, wait till you read it!

Thank you for your prayers for all the mission teams and for your financial gifts that continue to help many people come to know the Grace of God through Jesus Christ.

Much love, Jerry and the AMMC Team

A CHAIN OF MIRACLES

By Sara, Brazil

On New Year’s Eve I travelled to Brasilia, a two and a half hour trip by plane. I stayed with my friend Patricia and her family; they invited me to go out to lunch the next day to celebrate the New Year.

While in the restaurant there was a one-year-old baby close to our table. The baby started choking. The parents became frantic! A doctor was in the restaurant, he tried to expulse the food but was not able to. They put the baby on the floor and performed mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

At that point I went over and I laid hands on the baby, and prayed, claiming God’s miraculous intervention. I called on the keys of life and for Jesus to cast out the spirit of death! The baby was purple and everybody was desperate!

The ambulance came and the baby and parents went to the hospital. Some of the family members of the baby stayed, still so shaken. I went over to them and spoke a little with them, encouraging them and telling them that I had faith that the baby would survive! I gave each one a tract.

The next day, I told my friend that all night I was not able to sleep. I had prayed all night for that baby. She told me she had done the same. I told her that I asked the Lord to please tell us how the baby was doing.

Early that morning I had to go to the U.S. embassy for the interview for my visa. Patricia called an Uber (taxi) for me. While in the car, I started witnessing to the driver. He shared that his profession needs a lot of prayer as there is so much crime and violence. Just in the two days before the New Year, there were five deaths from crimes.

I shared with him about the baby who choked in the restaurant, that I was there praying desperately, crying out to Jesus to have mercy and raise the baby up to life!

He said, “Oh, was that in Gilberto Salomão?” (That was the name of the restaurant.)

“Yes!” I said.

Then he told me that his wife, who is a doctor, had attended to the baby! She had sent him a message asking him to pray because a baby who choked had just come into the hospital. He told me that the baby had died while they were clearing his air passage with a tube. He was dead for 50 minutes, but then the baby revived! Praise God!

I told Fabio (the driver) that I had prayed for that all night, and had specifically asked the Lord to let us know how the baby was doing. He was so touched, and me too! He said, “Of all the thousands of Uber drivers in the city, God sent me to you, in answer to your prayers!”

I told him that that day was my birthday, and that was the best gift ever, meeting him and hearing that the baby had survived!

“In that hour he healed many people of diseases and plagues and evil spirits, and on many who were blind he bestowed sight. And he answered them, “Go and tell John what you have seen and heard: the blind receive their sight, the lame walk, lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, the poor have good news preached to them.”—Luke 7:21–22 (ESV)
