I got to sit in on a small meeting with Chad Dedmon and Joaquin Evans a few months ago and here’s some of the stories that they talked about:
Esophagus Cancer Healed & Financial Miracle
Last spring an unbelieving man came in to the healing rooms with esophagus cancer. He got totally healed, saved, and is now preaching, healing the sick, and leading people to Jesus. The man recently lost his job when he tried to take off work to go to a healing conference. When he got to the conference and shared his testimony, people started giving him money. They just began piling cash on top of him. When they counted how much it was it came out to be $3,333.
Chad and his wife Julia just returned form a year long around the world ministry time. They told a story about a meeting in France where people were so desperate for healing that they were almost afraid for their safety. A Muslim man with liver cancer and a week left to live came into the meeting. The doctors had opened him up to take out the cancer but found it had spread so violently that they stapled up his side and told him he had no hope. During the meeting the man started receiving the Father’s love and, as he did, his staples popped open and black gunk started oozing out his side. All the pain left his body as the black stuff kept coming. He went to the doctor that afternoon and they were shocked and amazed. They said all the cancer had died and was literally fleeing his body!!
Blind Eyes Healed
The healing rooms here are seeing an explosion of blind eyes opening. Joaquin says that they do the best they can to try to record all the healing but sometimes, there’s just so many that it’s hard to keep up with. Chad and Julia saw a man healed in Mozambique who had been spit in the face by a cobra. The venom had destroyed his eyes and struck him blind until Jesus miraculously healed him and brought life back to his eyes.
New Eye Balls!
In India the Dedmon’s met a man who was born without eyeballs. He was a pastor who preached using Braille and had been fasting for 38 day for his healing. They prayed for an hour or so and, kept checking to see how he was every 5 minutes or so. For a while nothing was happening but then he could open his eye lids for the first time in his life! After a little while he opened his eye lids and there were new eye balls there! They continued to pray and his eyes became blue (which is a bit odd for an Indian). He could see shapes and forms but not really color. As they continued to pray his eyes turned brown and he could see perfectly!!!
A doctor later told Chad that sometimes babies are born with blue eyes and can only see partially. Later on, their eyes turn brown and they are able to see normally. The doctor said that this mean the man had literally received brand new baby eye balls that grew into his head. Jesus!
Achilles Tendon and Calf Muscles Grow Back
At one meeting they prayed for a man who had fallen through a glass ceiling a few years earlier. He had severed his Achilles tendon and the doctors had to remove his calf muscles completely. The man could hobble a bit but couldn’t walk normally, move his ankles at all, or feel anything in those areas. As Chad prayed for him he started moving his ankles around and was able to feel his feet. He told Chad that, earlier that day, he’d told the Lord, “wouldn’t it be great if I could run today” – because he used to be a runner. Chad said they were going to run so took him by the hand and they took off sprinting around the church.
Healing Rooms in a Gas Station
At a certain gas station, so many people got healed there that they’ve now opened up a healing room there. We were joking around that the gas pump read out might read, “would you like a car wash, receipt, or do you have any pain in your body?”
Astro Dome Miracles After Hurricane Katrina
Joaquin and Chad shared about how they and a few other guys spend several days ministering in the Astro Dome in Houston TX after Hurricane Katrina. They were denied access to get in but a prophet had told them that, when they were denied access, they should go to a door on their left and they’d get in that way. Sure enough the door on the left was open and the security guards inside literally walked away as they came up. They prayed for a woman with several herniated disks in her back who got instantly healed. All the pain left her body and she could move around normally. She, her daughter, and granddaughter got saved and became a walking evangelist - she’d walk up and down the isles of cots demonstrating how Jesus had healed her and asking others to receive prayer. Some people simply looked in the direction of the guys who were praying and felt heal go through their body and their pain leave. One lady hit the floor when walking past them and was healed of alcohol withdrawal symptoms.
