Miraculous Recovery from a Stroke!

One of our worship leaders at the King's Arms - Jon Dawe - had an awful scare last week when he was out for a drink with a friend. He was rushed to hospital with a suspected bleed on the brain. He was unable to speak, had intense pain in his head, had distorted vision and couldn't respond to the doctors or his wife. The outlook wasn't at all good and if he did recover it was expected that he would experience lasting damage in his body.

When our lead Elder, Simon and another guy from our church arrived at the hospital they found Jon in quite a state. They began to pray and an urgent prayer request was quickly sent out to the King's Arms family. After a little while Jon's symptoms began to improve. The doctors couldn't explain what was going on but simply encouraged everyone to keep doing what they were doing because it seemed to be working!

Throughout the course of the night Jon continued to improve. By 7am he was completely back to normal. After a full body scan the next day the doctors could find no evidence of what they suspected to be a stroke. They were totally blown away. Apparently it's normal for people who have strokes to have some lasting damage. Jon had been totally healed!

Listen to Jon and Amanda's story here and let it stir your faith in the goodness of God and His ability to break into any situation you may face. Let it also prompt thanksgiving to rise up in your heart. He is absolutely incredible!
