God's miracle!

As you probably remember, the husband in the home where the church plant is meeting in Vila Baum had a ladder slide out from under him a few weeks ago and broke his back. The doctors told him he very nearly was paralyzed, and that he would have to spend at least a month and a half in bed to allow it to heal.
I am pleased to report that just 15 days after he fell, Simão returned to work. While he is still limping and in some pain he is able to get around and do his job as a security guard. I arrived the other day to find him painting the house again (although he admitted with a laugh that he was not "approved" to use a ladder yet).

When he returned to the doctor for follow-up x-rays after two weeks, she was amazed and said that she did not see how it was possible for anyone to heal that fast - it was a true miracle!

Thank you all for your prayers! Once again, we see that God answers the prayers of His people!

Please continue to pray that God will complete the healing of Simão's back, and will also heal his legs and feet. He has fairly severe arthrosis, and several weeks off of his feet, combined with the cold weather have made his feet swell and make it very painful for him to walk.

So, PRAISE GOD WITH US, and keep on praying - prayer works (actually, God works in response to prayer, but we won't get into that :)
