There was an extraordinary scene on the final day of a Christian medical conference when a famed heart doctor produced evidence about a patient who had died and was being prepared for the morgue, but “was brought back to life after prayer.”
Dr. Chauncey W. Crandall IV, who serves at the Palm Beach Cardiovascular Clinic in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, made his dramatic presentation on the final day the 10th Annual World Christian Doctors Network (WCDN) conference in Toluca City, Mexico, which brought together some 350 doctors and medical professionals from 24 countries.
Billy Jack McDaniel knew the risks of work on drilling rigs. Injuries and death in the oil field are common, mostly due to human error. But when a pressure seal on his rig failed, which allowed natural gas to escape, he came face-to-face with eternity in a horrific explosion and fire.
“It didn’t take much to ignite,” recalls McDaniel, who found himself 150 feet high on a maintenance platform when the rig exploded. “I watched the fire. It came and got me. There was nowhere to go, nowhere to run.”
Kim Tae Jin finds it difficult to talk. The contrast between his life in North Korea and his life now in Seoul are too great. “The most difficult thing for me,” he says quietly, “is making decisions. Freedom of choice is unknown in North Korea. The Party told us what to do. We were treated as a group, not as individuals,” recalls Kim. “As I got older my doubts grew about the propaganda the government fed us.”
With the hope of a better life, Kim fled to China. There he heard about Jesus for the first time when a Christian gave him a Bible. After four short months, Kim was arrested and repatriated back to North Korea where he was sent to camp number 15… the dreaded Yodok labor camp.
He was born into the upper rung of Indian society, but his involvement in gang activities as a young person almost took his life.

The hit miniseries The Bible is setting records on cable television for the History Channel, with as many as 13 million viewers tuning in for the blockbuster.

Faith and godly compassion are guiding principles in the life of Dr. Hannah Gay, the University of Mississippi Medical Center Pediatrician at the forefront of the reported cure of HIV in a 2-year-old girl born with the disease in rural Mississippi.
Gay and her husband Paul served as Southern Baptist representatives in the Horn of Africa 25 years ago as HIV was taking root there, but Gay’s interest in the disease is driven more by a desire to achieve the best for children, rather than a desire to find a cure, her husband told Baptist Press.

“I was a super-groupie,” says Jozy Pollock, a blonde, middle-aged woman who dresses conservatively, and lets a prominent silver cross dangle from her neck. “Sometimes it seems like I’ve lived three or four separate lives,” she says.
Born in England, she became the “Hula-Hoop Queen” in her youth. She married American magician, Channing Pollock, and moved to the United States, where they performed in Las Vegas and twice on the Ed Sullivan Show. Then the two of them went on the road with the flamboyant pianist, Liberace.
“I told the kids to get ready. My son grabbed his Bible, his daily devotional, and his watch from his girlfriend. We heard the noise and the lights started flickering and we told them we loved them.”
“We pushed the pillows down on their heads and jumped on top of them and I started shouting the Lord’s Prayer. The louder the noise got, the louder I got. I prayed that God would not take them away. “Take me,” (I told God) but don’t take them, because I couldn’t go forward without them. — Gwen, near Hattiesburg, as told to a Billy Graham RRT chaplain
After killing a man during an armed robbery, Edward Salazar Mauricio knew he might face the electric chair in Texas, a state that often wields the sword of justice with finality. By God’s grace he received a life sentence, but he hated and even viciously attacked Christians who attempted to witness to him in his prison cell.
Eventually, however, the power of God’s Word penetrated his heart and brought changes he could never have imagined.
