A sixteen year old boy had been shot in the head and left for dead on the near-by beach. He was taken to Buen Pastor, the hospital in San Quintin. Miraculously he lived, but was left blind. He was sent to the Mission and was eventually able to push a broom, sweeping our many walkways.
His name was Lucio, which means light. One of the little children said, “With a name like light he should not be blind.” Frequently the children prayed for Lucio and then one day it happened. Lucio bent down and swept up trash into a dust pan. The children ran to the administrator and said, “Lucio sees!” It was true. God had miraculously restored his vision. He proclaimed, “I was blind, but now I see.” Later Lucio returned to Capala, Oaxaca, to preach the Gospel. He was later martyred.
There have been numerous other occasions when there has been a revival among our children. Sonya Bertelsen and Corrine Ehrick reported there has been an outpouring of the Holy Spirit on our children. There has been healings, repentance, confession of sin; restoration of relationships and forgiveness with weeping.
The joy of the Lord had fallen on these children. The revival lasted several days. In 1982, giving was at an all time low. Our children, from their meager resources, gave all they had.
Jill Adams, our Baja adminstrator’s adopted son, Nathan, is in need of prayer. He was diagnosed at birth as having Hepatitis C. Now at age seven, he has severe liver damage, but he is not a candidate for special treatment until age 12.
Our children at the Mission have faith to believe for a miracle. And Nathan needs one. Will you join us in praying for Nathan?
