Big Miracles

     Doctors had all but given up hope. The patient was suffering from a condition called Guillain Barre, an autoimmune disorder similar to Lou Gehrig’s disease, which involves progressive paralysis. Lois Thiessen, Alliance missionary to Uruguay, was asked to visit the woman in the hospital. She was on a respirator to keep her heart and lungs functioning but had serious complications, and her physicians were sure they were going to lose her. 
     “But through prayer, God moved,” says Lois. Recently, the woman came out of intensive care and has been moved to the regular ward to continue her rehabilitation. Her physicians don’t know how to respond in medical terms to this miracle. But one of the doctors, who lives next door to the Thiessens, attributes the sudden recovery to the “Big Man Upstairs.” “Pray for our neighbor in his search for the Truth,” Lois says.
