While the Brown family received significant assistance physically as they learned to follow God’s health laws, the real miracle came as God transformed their hearts.
For morning devotions, Mr. and Mrs. Brown began reading the book “The Ministry of Healing” by Ellen G. White. In the evenings, Bible studies were led out by young missionaries Ezra and Racquel. The couple, especially Mr. Brown, loved devotional time and wanted everyone he knew to share in his experience. He began inviting family members, neighbors, and friends to learn simple Bible truths.
Then came the day that Mr. and Mrs. Brown celebrated their first Sabbath together. Family and friends who accepted the Browns’ invitation to worship together were so impressed that they asked to meet again the following Sabbath.
The next Sabbath, the group doubled in size. The participants, all non-Adventists, spoke about how they had never heard the Scriptures being explained in such a clear way before. They readily accepted Bible doctrines and wanted to learn more. Some even expressed a desire to organize a new Seventh-day Adventist church on the spot.
When it came time for Racquel and Ezra to fly home, Mr. and Mrs. Brown thanked them for following God’s will. The couple said their lives had changed for the better and would never be the same again.
What a miracle and answer to prayer. Not only did God answer Ezra and Racquel’s prayer for physical restoration for the Browns, but He also answered above and beyond what they had asked for by bringing spiritual healing. We are never too young or old to point souls to Jesus. The Adventist health message, along with much prayer, truly is a powerful entering wedge.
