Dad’s Miracle Healing!

My father’s life was work.

He love working, but there was one day when he came home from work, looking very discouraged (I was 11 at that time).

Mom asked him what was wrong?

He said that the doctor at the factory told him he had holes in his lungs and would no longer be allowed to work.

He asked mom what was he now going to do?

Mom had been a Christian since her healing at a Kathryn Kuhlman’s meeting a couple years earlier.

She had, at that time, become the first and only Christian in our family.

She was standing on the promise in Acts chapter 16 verse 31 telling that if she believed, not only would she be saved, but also her whole family.

She told Dad he had to go to the miracle service that night in Carnegie auditorium in Pittsburgh where Kathryn Kuhlman was preaching.

He told her that he was not a believer.

She said it did not matter, she was a believer and that she would be praying for him.

He asked her if she was going to go with him?

She said that she could not go, that she had to stay home with the baby but she answered that Sonny can go with him. (that was my nickname when I was small).

I knew that Christians carried a book to church, so I ran into my room and got two comic books. I believe it was Donald Duck and Superman.

So off to the auditorium we went that night, Dad parked the car and we walked across the street to the auditorium.

It was next door to the museum. Dad stopped and told me to look at the auditorium.

He asked me what I saw?

I told Dad that the place looks like it’s packed out and people are hanging out the windows and the doors.

He had a big smile on his face and told me to make sure that I remembered what I saw, to tell Mom.

As we turned to go back to the car, not thinking we could get inside the auditorium, we heard a shout from an upstairs window "Tony, Tony”.

We turned and looked and there was a man, hanging out one of the windows, shouting my Dad’s name, telling us to wait for him.

He evidently was a fellow worker of my father. The man rushed to my dad and told him he had been praying for him and how happy he was to see my dad there.

Dad had a big smile and said, “Yes, we came to the meeting but as you see there’s no room for us to get in as the place is overflowing."

The man said, not to worry that he could get us in.

Dad's smile now became a frown.

He took my dad by the hand while dad held unto me.

He took us through the side of the museum. He, having a key, opened the door and shoved us into the balcony that was packed like sardines.

Dad and I were leaning against the back wall and as we shimmied over to the windowsill where he lifted me up and told me to sit there. Do not fall out, as your mother wouldn’t like it.

They were singing and so I opened up one of my comic books.

A child is able to do many things at the same time. A child can be doing homework, watching television and listening to everything mother and dad are saying in the kitchen at the same time.

As I was reading my comic book, I heard Kathryn Kuhlman say that there’s a man here with holes in his lungs. "Where is that man?”

I looked at my dad and I poked him I and said, "Dad, that is you.”

He looked at me and said, "Be quiet.”

Again Kathryn Kuhlman said, “Where is that man? If you don’t acknowledge, you will lose your healing. Raise your hand.”

Dad slipped his hand halfway up and I don’t know how anyone could possibly have seen it.

Then a elderly woman saw dad’s hand and shouted, “Here he is Kathryn.”

Kathryn Kuhlman, then made eye contact with my father and said, “You’re the man.”

My father shook his head to say yes.

She said to him, "You have holes in your lungs and they told you that today?”

Dad shook his head in the affirmative.

She then told him, “You’re not a believer, are you? Your wife is at home praying for you. Is that right?”

Dad once again shook his head, yes. “You are Jewish?”

Once again, dad shook his head.

"Do you receive your healing?"

Dad shook his head, yes.

I could hardly wait to get home to tell mom. I jumped out of the car and ran into the house, saying “mom, mom, guess what happened?”

She said, “Jesus healed daddy.”

I said “How do you know, we don’t have a telephone?"

No one in the neighborhood had a phone. How did she know?

Then I thought how did Kathryn Kuhlman know everything?

Of course now we know. It was by the gift of the Spirit.

Mom asked dad what he was going to do now?

He said, "I don’t know."

She told him, “You’re going back to the doctor tomorrow.”

Dad said “What am I going to say?”

She told him to say that your wife wants you to have another examination.

Of course, when the doctor asked why, as they had just taken them the day before, he said, if there's one good reason, he would.

Dad told him his wife said so and he told dad he understood, he had a wife too.

They ended up taking x-rays twice and they could find no holes in his lungs.

The doctor told dad that they must have made a mistake.

The new x-rays showed he had the lungs of a young man.

God did a miracle!

This was no mistake.


This miracle was the second miracle that took place in my life before I came to know Jesus Christ as my personal Savior six years later.

Even though God did this miracle for my dad, it would take more than 10 years before dad also came to Christ.

That is another miracle testimony!

God bless you and yours.
