Stillborn Baby Raised by Praying Teenagers

Read this simply but powerful testimony of how a stillborn baby, dead for 27 hours, was brought back to life in San Pedro La Laguna, Guatemala, through the prayers of a few teenagers on summer ministry teams from the States.
We prayed for thirty to forty minutes. At the end of that time, Julia screamed out to God, telling Him that she believed with all of her heart that this baby could be raised from the dead. After Julia screamed out, everyone was silent. We were quietly interceding and praying. Within a few minutes, the baby started moving. Then the baby coughed and began crying. The mother came rushing into the room. She was screaming, what is going on? No one could answer her. We were just staring at the baby, who had come back to life. The mother asked us again, what is going on? She began crying as she saw that her baby was alive. She ran out of the house and banged on every door in the village, telling all of the people that God is real because her baby was alive. Within about thirty minutes, the baby's skin tone and movements had become completely normal.
This brought an opportunity for them to preach to all the villagers. Between 80 and 90 prayed to receive Christ, were baptized in the Holy Spirit and received the gift of tongues.

Praise God, who gives life to the dead.
