Are there any particular healings that stand out to you?
I was Assistant Principal at a middle school where this one girl had been diagnosed with organ cancer. She had chemotherapy for a year. Everyone expected her to die. The Make a Wish Foundation was getting her family a new home. They lived in an adobe hut with no water, no electricity, and a dirt floor. They were poor as dirt. Her dad was an abusive alcoholic; her mom had had half a dozen kids. The chemotherapy had left the girl bald. I told my dad, and he got her a wig. She had become skeletal from the treatment. I just knew I couldn't watch this child go. I invited her and some of her siblings to stay with me and my family over a weekend a time or two. We let them watch TV and do other things that were like Disneyland to them. We took them to Sunday school a couple of times. I told her that God loved her and that she was not guilty of anything. She was not being punished. Chemo was not working, so she went to the children's hospital in San Diego for an operation that was to be the beginning of the end. She called me that night from the hospital. She said she wanted to go home. I didn't have a clue what to say to this 12-year-old girl, so I just closed my eyes and listened to God. "Well, honey," I said, "there's nothing to be afraid of. They can't find anything in you that God didn't make." It wasn't too complex, but it was what came to me. I asked her if she wanted me to pray for her, and she did. My prayer was a simple acknowledgement that God was her loving Father and, therefore, would never have caused or allowed any harm to come to her. And, she was His eternal, perfect "image" and "likeness" (Gen. 1:26) and could not have fallen away from this fact to any degree because God's being is changeless and eternal. Two days later I got a call from one of her teachers. The doctors had opened her up and found that there was no cancer -- not a trace. They were so certain that there'd been a mistake that they sent a nurse out regularly to check on her every two weeks for the next year. I called the hospital myself, told them I was the assistant principal, shared how grateful I was, and asked how they explained it. The surgeon who performed the operation started to make some speculations and then just stopped and said, "We don't have an explanation; we're just really thankful." Probably 16 years later, my students and I were talking about health issues and healing, so I called this same girl and put her on speaker phone so all of us could hear her. She was married and working as a teacher's assistant at the school she had attended when I was the AP. She remembered the healing exactly as I did and told my students that it was a wonderful blessing.
What do you think brought the healing?
You know the story in the Bible when Jesus healed the man who had been blind his whole life, and the Jews didn't believe him, so they called on his parents; then the Pharisees kept questioning him on how he was healed (John 9)? One of his answers was, "… one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see" (John 9:25). I don't know all the answers, but based on what I personally believe, I think that this girl woke up to the absolute fact of her real identity as a child of God. She had been scared to death, but for one moment, for just one moment, she glimpsed herself as spiritual and perfect -- totally loved and cared for by God. The result, I believe, was that all fear dropped, and she was able to see herself differently. It was like she woke up from a dream, albeit a pretty convincing dream, to discover that she was God's child. She wasn't some poverty-stricken, unlucky girl. People could argue that this was just a fluke, but I would say that it was the glory of God made manifest. I've seen a lot of things in my life, but nothing like this. And if I had nothing else to ponder for the rest of my life except this healing, my life would be full, and I'd never lack for something to do.
