REAP THESE OUTSTANDING TESTIMONIES OF HEALINGS FROM YOUR COMMUNITY AND OF HOW GOD HEALED THEM DURING THE LAST DAVID NUNN REVIVAL IN ALTON. TIME TESTED MIRACLE DEAR BROTHER NUNN: I am writing you my testimony of how God gave me complete deliverance from the results of a terrible accident, in your Alton, Illinois, revival. You may use this testimony anywhere, anytime for the glory of God. I am -an Assembly of God minister and have been since 1938. In April, 1950, while pastoring a , church in the Granite City, Illinois, area, on my way to Sunday evening services, I stopped to visit and pray for one of the people of my church that was ill. Upon leaving their residence, which was in an upstairs apartment building, I fell down a flight of stairs and broke my back, tore my neck vertebrae apart and seriously injured my neck, tore the left arm loose and did serious damage to the tissues and muscles of my back. I was Injured from the back of my head down to the ninth vertebra in my. back. I wore steel braces on my back and a brace on my neck, but these did not help. It affected the use of my arms. The nerves in my spine were injured and I was getting what the specialist said was a partial paralysis from the injury. The pain I suffered constantly was so severe that at times I felt that my very sanity was at stake. They gave me a narcotic to take. I took this for at least a year, until where one-half tablet did relieve me, I finally had to take one whole tablet and then a few minutes later another half. Finally the specialist said only a bone graft operation would help. They waited until winter in 1983 to operate, because my entire body would have to go Into a cast. I went through the operation and came home in a cast. I wore that two months and was put into a steel brace for about a year. But the sad part was 1 still suffered. They would not give me a narcotic, but they gave me a combination of drugs to try and stop the pain. Finally they told me that it was a very unfortunate thing that had happened, but I would just have to learn to live with the pain, and try to adjust my life to it. These five years I had felt I was walking in a dark valley of terrible suffering, yet ahead I saw the light of deliverance. I felt tbat God would see me through. Thank God lie did. Brother Nunn, when I attended your service in Alton. Illinois, I did not ask you to pray for me that night. I told you I would be back. I felt God was going to do something wonderful the next night when I returned. Friday night you asked people to stand and testify. I stood to testify to how the Lord had touched my eyes. Brother Nunn, I felt that you must have gotten my letter, prayed over it and got a definite answer from God, because you told me that night you had news for me that God was going to do something for me. You told me to step out in the aisle and bend over and touch my toes. The thought came to me— I don't even know whether I could touch my toes or not, even before they made the spinal fusion in my back. But I obeyed. I felt the presence of God come upon me. I lifted my hands and began to praise the Lord. I felt wonderful, but yet not what I wanted. You said God wa* doing a work in my spine because you could feel it in yours. I sat down and still praised the Lord. Then I began to feel the power of God work* ing up that spine of mine. I felt it was the band of the Great Physician. Praise His wonderful name! Brother Nunn, a voice told me to stand upon my feet. I stood up. When I did, I felt a power of light saturated my entire being with such force. 1 remember I saw a few feet of that sawdust aisle as I started toward where you were, there in front. I knew my hour of deliverance had come. As I started toward where you were that night I ran out of that dark valley of pain and suffering. I felt my arms that had been M affected by the injury were like bicycle wheels turning. God marvelously touched me and gave me complete deliverance. I am doing thing* I haven't done in five years.

Telephone Dickens 4-2616 TIME TESTED MIRACLE OF HEALING OF THE DREADED BUERGERS DISEASE HEALED IN AUGUST 1955 My life blighting story begins In the Fall of 1839 when I noticed a worn out feeling in my left hip, which caused me to rest frequently. This condition gradually turned into pain in my entire leg and feet and after treating me several tunes for fallen arches, my doctor sent me to a hospital for my first visit, late in 1941. There they tohl me thai 1 hud Buergers Disease and would have it the rest of my lite, that cigarette smoking was no doubt the cause of it and my relief would come from ceasing to smoke, watching my diet, raising unil lowering my legs in bed at intervals and clone attention to the care of my feet. The sympathetic nervous system In both of my lugs and feet bad become so poisoned that the blood flow was so restrkitod to a trickle, making a scratch or a bruise a likely site lor gangrene to attack. For fourteen years I suffered agonizing pain day and night, except when drugged, and wa» hospitalized a total of nine times, seven of them with "Impending gangrene*'. As I look back over that morbid period I know God must of known I would eventually be saved. My wife WM praying regularly, but I wasn't too much concerned then. However, I did not lose any part of my legs or feet while the doctor* probed, thought, fought gangrene. The doctor* severed both my •ympathetlo nerve* in (be lumbar region, grafted «Un to olone open ulcer* and did everything in their power to prevent initial surgery, because it is known that small amputation* usually require another then another higher up, until the limb 1* lost. On JMuy 1, 1933, I was called "done" and placed on a total disability annuity and there I resigned myself to live with my pain, using as little pain reliever a* possible. My condition grew progressively worse, and by the summer of I«S8 it seemed I might be due for another trip to the hospital. I was a member of a denominational church which did not teach divine healing, but on August 19, 1900, 1 was persuaded by a neighbor and ber Full Gospel pastor to attend a healing revival, being conducted by Rev. David Nunn at Alton, III. I remember the terrific pain I suffered while walking over the crushed rock parking lot from the car to the tent that night. When the healing line was formed I believed that God would heal me and Brother Nunn prayed the prayer of faith and God did beal me, because I do not remember the crushed rock on our trip home and have been free from pain from tbl* source since ibat nigbt. The next spring I went back to my job which I bad been away from for four year* and my dto- ability payment* were dropped and I haven't missed a day because of sickness suice then. MH.
