John Smith

John Smith


When John Smith fell through an icy Missouri lake one winter morning at 14 years old, it looked like all was lost. At the hospital, John lay lifeless for more than 60 minutes. His family asked themselves, "How could God do this to us?" But his mother Joyce was not ready to give up. She mustered all her faith and strength and cried out to God in a loud voice to save her son.

Immediately, John's heart miraculously started beating, again. 

In the coming days, John would defy every expert, every case history, and every scientific prediction. Sixteen days after falling through the ice and being clinically dead for an hour, John Smith walked out of the hospital under his own power, completely healed.

"I hope," he says, "To be able to spread the miraculous story of God raising me from the dead to the world."
