The Remarkable Healing Miracle That Shook England to Its Core

After 25 years of spinal agony that involved 14 operations, Mrs. Jean Neil of Rugby, England had a very strange dream. She was confined to a wheelchair at the time and had slept for decades on a solid wooden board to help alleviate her pain.

In the dream she saw herself in a giant auditorium with thousands of people. She saw herself being the second person to get prayed for by a minister who she did not know and, in the dream, she came out of the wheelchair and began running.

After waking up, she discovered that Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke would be ministering in Birmingham, England, three weeks from that time. Her condition was so bad that she had to get an ambulance to take her to the meeting.

There, in March of 1988, at the National Exhibition Center, everything shown to her in the dream came to pass. She got up in front of 11,000 people and began running. Her miracle was so spectacular that the tabloid press across England picked up on it, and her story has defied medical understanding to this day. Her Jewish physician, Dr. Colin West, simply described her healing as "unbelievable."

This healing is shown on the YouTube version of the CPN Lessons from Legends podcast and videocast. The amazing stories behind this miracle are covered on this week's podcast of Lessons from Legends with host Dr. Berin Gilfillan.

I originally produced the documentary Something to Shout About that made this story famous. This latest podcast can be downloaded here.
