I quickly prepared the nebulizer using our saline solution. “God,” I prayed, “You know that we don’t have the proper medication to treat Maria. Please, Father, turn this saline into medicine that will help Maria breathe.” Whether God turned our saline solution into medicine or simply opened up Maria’s bronchioles, I do not know. What I do know is that He worked a miracle to save her life. She immediately began to breathe normally and soon regained her strength.

The man who had been shot in the chest with the 12-caliber gun also survived as a result, I believe, of divine intervention. Not every patient whom I’ve prayed for has been healed, of course. My experiences as a missionary have helped me learn to trust God in those situations. But I’m so thankful that I have been allowed to witness His
healing power. He is a God of miracles who surely loves us. * Name has been changed. Rosimelia Ferreira de Figueiredo is from Brazil and served as a volunteer missionary nurse for the Northwest Brazil Union Mission.
