A vivid dream, a miracle and refugees
By Mary Joyce, website editor

It was still dark outside when I awoke from a very vivid dream – one that inspired me to write this article.  In the dream, I was in a simple hilltop community with a small river at the bottom of the hill.  There were about 35-40 people silently standing by the river in three rows, one behind the other. Somehow, I knew they were hungry and were silently praying to be fed. All of them were wearing black robes and tall white turbans.
After the dream, I searched and searched for an image similar to the people in the dream.  The closest I could find was this photo to the right of a man from the Druze faith.

Next in my dream, I went into a communal kitchen and asked the cook if we could prepare food for those who were hungry at the bottom of the hill.  She immediately began preparing something for them in a very large mixing bowl, and added that was the end of her flour.  I said I would buy some more, but a voice said I could never buy enough.

Then I was directed to do two things when I awoke: (1) write about a Syrian refugee miracle for this website, and (2) search for credible charities that help Syrian refugees.  


In my Internet search for a Syrian miracle, I found many reports about refugees being helped after actually seeing Jesus.  I found this intriguing since 90 percent of Syrians follow the Islamic faith.  Here is one of those stories experienced by Marvin Lahoud, a 26-year-old volunteer with a Lebanese church. 

Marvin was in charge of distributing food vouchers to Syrian refugees.  One day he stopped by a basement space where a Muslim refugee family was sheltered. A little boy standing at the entrance looked up at Marvin, smiled and said “Come in.  We were expecting you.”

Marvin was puzzled.  He never before had contact with the family and hadn’t told anyone where he was going.  How could they have been expecting him?

The boy’s mother invited Marvin inside and asked her son to explain to Marvin what had happened the previous day.  Here is the boy’s translated story.

“Yesterday, I had a dream that was so vivid I thought it was real.  I was walking on the shore of the sea and saw a man standing in the sea with water up to his knees.  He was clothed in a bright white robe.  His face shined so bright, I couldn’t see the details of his face.  His hands were noticeably tender.  I asked him who he was.  He said, ‘I am Jesus’ and I said ‘What do you want?’

“Jesus said, ‘I want you to believe in love, have faith and keep hope.  Do not be afraid.  Help is on the way.  Tomorrow, a man will come over called Marvin and he will help you and your family.’” 

“And now you are here,” the mother said to Marvin. *

After finding Marvin’s story, I searched the Internet for credible charities that are helping Syrian refugees.  The following have all been given 4-star ratings by Charity Navigator:
International Rescue Committee, Medical Teams International, Doctors Without Borders and International Medical Corps.  There are many other charities so I encourage anyone who might want to help Syrian refugees to do their own research.

* Marvin’s story was first published by “Providence Magazine.”

Medical doctor confirms 10 miracle healings
By Mary Joyce, website editor

Sometimes an old worn book still has a timely message.  One of those is “THE MIRACLES – A medical doctor says yes to miracles.”  It was written in 1976 by H. Richard Casdorph. MD, PhD. 

Dr. Casdorph is no slouch of a doctor.  After graduating from Indiana University Medical School, he did his residency in Internal Medicine at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
Today at age 88, he still practices Internal Medicine and Cardiology at his Casdorph Clinic in Long Beach, California.

In the 1970s, Dr. Casdorph took on a unique research project.  He interviewed 10 people who claimed to have been miraculously healed of serious conditions. He examined each patient’s case history including X-rays, test results and medical reports.  He also submitted the case histories to medical specialists for review. 

In all 10 cases, the evidence showed that unusual healings had taken place after the individuals received a prayer for healing.  Four of those healings occurred after the people attended Kathryn Kuhlman healing meetings. She was a well-known healer who traveled extensively in the USA and many other countries between the 1940s and 1970s.

Arena-size audiences attended Kathryn Kuhlman’s healing meetings.

Below are three brief accounts of miracle healings from Dr. Casdorph’s study that occurred after the individuals attended Kathryn Kuhlman healing meetings.

LISA LARIOS - Lisa was diagnosed with cancer of the hip when she was 12 and was unable to walk unaided. Her family decided chemotherapy was too traumatic and called it off after one treatment.

The family was Catholic but not very religious, yet at the invitation of a family friend, they decided to attend one of Kathryn Kuhlman’s healing meetings. Their concerned friend fasted and prayed for a week before the meeting.

During the service, Lisa felt warmth in her stomach just as Kathryn Kuhlman said someone in Lisa’s section of the auditorium was being healed from cancer and should stand up.  Against her mother’s wishes, Lisa stood up.  Amazingly, she was able to walk without pain.

Lisa was X-rayed several times after that and multiple doctors confirmed that her hip had been fully restored and the cancer was gone

MARION BURGIO - When multiple sclerosis first affected Marion in 1958, she was pregnant and not yet 30. She felt numbness in her hands, kept falling over, and generally started losing coordination. Ten years later, she was suffering with bad headaches, inconstancy, loss of hearing and vision.  She couldn’t hold her head up, was unable to eat and her forearm had become deformed.

A friend who visited her regularly invited Marion to go to a Kathryn Kuhlman healing meeting.  At first, Marion refused to go, but eventually agreed to be taken in a wheelchair.

Marion couldn’t remember exactly what happened, but during the service she found herself standing up, with her back and limbs straight for the first time in years. She began to walk immediately.  Later her surprised doctor found she had been healed of all symptoms, including the deformities.

RAY JACKSON – By the time Ray attended a Kathryn Kuhlman healing meeting, he had lost a kidney to cancer and the disease had spread to his spine, pelvis, breastbone and leg. His doctors concluded that surgery was out of the question but they would start him on radiation treatments.  He was expected to live no more than a year.

Before his first treatment, he awoke during the night to hear a voice tell him he would be healed. The next day he attended a Kathryn Kuhlman miracle service during which the pain disappeared instantly. Tests the next day still showed the lesions, but subsequent tests showed that healthy new bone had filled in where the lesions had been and scans showed no evidence of an abnormality.

Dr. Casdorph said this case is especially notable because of the wealth of medical detail available from Duke University Medical Center that confirmed the healing.





The gallon of milk angel

EDITOR’S NOTE: Too often we ignore or dismiss our gut feelings, hunches and even whispers from God or angels to do or not do something.  The following story, which we received from Bobby, might encourage us all to pay more attention to that type of guidance. We’ve added the art/photos.

A young man had been to a Wednesday night Bible study where the pastor had talked about listening to God and obeying the Lord’s voice. The young man couldn’t help but wonder “Does God still speak to people?”

After service, the young man went out with some friends for coffee and pie and they discussed the message. Several different ones talked about how God had led them in different ways.


It was about 10 p.m. when the young man started driving home. Sitting in his car, he began to pray. “God, if you still speak to people, speak to me. I will listen.  I will do my best to obey.”

As he drove down the main street of his town, he had the strangest thought to stop and buy a gallon of milk. He shook his head and said out loud, “God, is that you?”

He didn’t get a reply and started on toward home, but again the thought came “Buy a gallon of milk.” The young man thought about Samuel and how he didn’t recognize the voice of God. “Okay, God, in case that is you, I will buy a gallon of milk.”



It didn’t seem like too hard a test of obedience.  He could always use the milk, so he stopped and purchased the milk and as he passed 7th Street, he again felt the urge, “Turn down that street.”

This is crazy, he thought, and drove on pass the intersection. Again, he felt he should turn down 7th Street so at the next intersection, he turned back and headed down 7th Street.

Half-jokingly, he said, “Okay, God, I will.”

He drove several blocks, when suddenly he felt like he should stop.  He pulled over to the
curb and looked around. He was in a semi-commercial part of town.  It wasn’t the best but it wasn’t the worst of neighborhoods either. The businesses were closed and most of the houses were dark, like the people already were in bed.

Again, he sensed something, “Go and give the milk to the people in the house across the street.” The young man looked at the house.  It looked like the people were gone or they already were asleep. He started to open the car door and then sat back in the car seat.

“Lord, this is insane.
  Those people are asleep and if I wake them up, they are going to be mad and I will look stupid.”

Again, he felt like he should go and give the milk. Finally, he opened the door, “Okay, God, if this is you, I will go to the door and give them the milk.  If you want me to look like a crazy person, okay.  I want to be obedient. I guess that will count for something, but if I don’t get an answer right away, I’m out of here.”


He walked across the street and rang the bell. He could hear some noise inside.  A man’s
voice rang out, “Who is it?  What do you want?”  The door opened before the young man could get away.

The man was standing there in his jeans and T-shirt.  He looked like he’d just gotten out of
bed.  He had a strange look on his face and didn’t seem too happy to have some stranger on his doorstep.  “What is it?” The young man thrust out the gallon of milk, “Here, I brought this to you.”

The man took the milk and rushed down the hallway. Then from down the hall came a woman carrying the milk toward the kitchen. The man was following her, holding a baby.  The baby was crying.  The man had tears running down his face.

The man began speaking and half crying, “We were just praying.  We had some big bills this month and we ran out of money.  We didn’t have any milk for our baby and I was just praying and asking God to show me how to get some milk.”

His wife in the kitchen yelled out, “I asked him to send an angel with some.  Are you an

The young man reached into his wallet and pulled out all the money he had on him and put it into the man’s hand.  He turned and walked back to his car and the tears were running down his face.  He knew that God still answers prayers.

Man instantly healed by Pleiadian ET
By Mary Joyce, website editor

Michael Carter’s leg was swollen to the size of a tree trunk but he thought it was just a muscle injury when he hobbled into his doctor’s office in late January 2013.  Wrong!  His right leg was so huge that the doctor asked him “Are you driving?  Is someone with you?”

No one was with Michael so the doctor told him to get in a cab and go immediately to a nearby facility for an ultrasound.

“I went there and they told me I had one continuous blood clot from my ankle to the groin area and if it burst it would be the end of me,” Michael says.  “I asked if it would hurt and they said I would never know what hit me.”

In an effort to dissolve the monster clot, Michael’s doctor put him on the blood thinner Coumadin, plus Michael had to inject another blood thinner into his stomach.

About five months later when July 4th rolled around, Michael’s leg was still badly swollen but a miracle was about to happen.


“I went to bed and was tossing and turning because of a terrible thunderstorm that had canceled the fireworks,” he explains.  “I don't know how long the star person was behind me as I lay on my stomach but I felt a presence. When I turned on my back, I saw him.

He was almost as tall as my ceiling, maybe seven feet tall.  He was very pale with blond hair that almost touched his shoulders and his eyes were blue.

“He was wearing a brown robe like monks used to wear back in Renaissance times.  It had a little cord belt and the hood was not on.  He was very well built.  I could see his muscles through the robe; that’s how built he was.  A sky blue shirt was peeking out from the neckline of his robe.

“He looked at me; I looked at him.  Then he stuck his hand out toward me and an apple green light came out from the palm of his hand and hit me in my stomach area. 

“He said nothing and I didn’t feel anything. Then he dis-solved right before me.  His molecules just dissolved.  The whole experience only lasted about 30 seconds.


“When I got out of bed, I looked down and my leg was completely normal.  Believe me; I couldn’t wait to share my out-of-this-world miracle with someone.  So I called Preston Dennett, a friend who lives on the West Coast and would still be up and awake.

“I said, ‘Hey, man, since you’ve written a book about UFO healings, let me tell you what just happened to me.’  When he heard my story, he said ‘Wow! Do you mind if I put that in my next book?’ Of course I didn’t mind.  His earlier book ‘UFO Healings’ is like a Bible to me.

“About a week after that, I was meditating and in my third eye two Pleiadians showed up. 
They had longer blond hair and were wearing blue tight-fitting shirts or suits; I don’t know which because I could only see them from the pecks up.  My eyes were closed but I blinked them open and shut and the two were still there.  Then they just faded away.  I took it as a way of letting me know they were around me.

“As for my doctor, he seemed befuddled by my instant healing. All he could do was press me with questions:  ‘What happened?  How did this happen?  How did it happen so quickly?’

“I wasn’t going to tell him what actually happened, so I said, ‘Listen, I don’t know how it happened but aren’t you happy for me?  Aren’t you happy I don’t have the clot anymore?’”







Glimpse of mankind’s destiny in near-death experience

EDITOR’S NOTE:  “Tom” is an information technology professional who had a near-death experience (NDE) ten years ago when he fell from a construction site.  Like so many others who’ve had NDEs, he went to “a place of love and light” and didn’t want to return to his life on Earth. When he did, he had new insights that might be of interest to others. 

“When I left my body, I quickly went to a place of light,” Tom began.  “The light emanated love, a love I never really felt before.  It was not romantic love; it was much, much more. There was wisdom intertwined with that love.  This place was all energy, including me, and this love energy just flowed through me; it permeated my whole being.

“I was told that I had to return to Earth, that I was only halfway through.  I was told I was to be a student teacher.  Along with that, I saw two words – “student” and “teacher” – that flipped back and forth.  It was a graphic representation that on Earth I was to learn and to also teach by example.”

Tom then went on to describe Earth as being like “a classroom where we learn many, many lessons” and like a “sandbox where you really can’t mess up too much. We might build things that get torn down, get sand in our eyes and cry but it’s a very forgiving environment where we can’t mess up too much.

“From that other reality,” he continued, “we humans are seen with a great deal of love.  They want us all to succeed.  They’re very forgiving of us and our mistakes.  There was no picture of hell just a desire that we learn our lessons on Earth so we don’t have to continue returning.  It appeared that we do this over and over many times because it would be difficult to learn all the lessons here in a few lifetimes.


“There appears to be a graduation from this level, from this classroom.  It’s a graduation that we typically miss before we actually get to do it ourselves.  We will see others graduate before we actually get to the point where we’re able to graduate.

“I think the things that we’re here to learn are about love - love between each other, unity among people and a love of the Earth.  The Earth is energy, a living energy just like we are.  We’re to learn how to get along and not destroy the classroom in the process.

“There is a graduation approaching and we really need to get our act together and switch the balance so that more can graduate. It looked like only a minority of us would actually graduate, and that is okay and acceptable.

Those who don’t graduate will understand. There’s an exact place for everyone.  There’s a perfect place for each of us. It looked like those who weren’t graduating would have to go somewhere else other than Earth – other places, not one particular place.
The people who graduate would stay here.  Earth is graduating as a classroom, as well as we students.


“I saw us, each of us, as much more than we appear on Earth, that we’re each very much bigger and existing on these very much higher levels already.  It looks like we’re each pillars of light that go to infinity.  Only a small part of us is here having this experience.  We’re already amazing spiritual beings.  In a way, as a collective, we’re God.  Much of what we see as being outside of us is in fact us or us as part of a collective.

“In this other place of light, I very much wanted to join back in with the unity of all the others there.  It was a familiar environment and I very much missed it when I had to come back to Earth.  I think our path here is to work our way back to that unity.”






Raging bull sends woman on visit to heaven

The following report is from Colleen A. Barker who had a near-death experience when she was a teen working on a dairy farm.  One day the farmer needed the cows corralled into the “milking parlor” so she volunteered to bring them in from the fields.  She was given only one instruction:

“Take a cane with you.  Don’t back down if a bull gives you any trouble.  Yell at the bull and swing the cane around and it will turn and go with the cows.” 

This is what happened next in Colleen’s own words:


“I headed out to open and close the appropriate gates to make sure the cows were channeled into the milking parlor.  Once in the field, I circled around the cows but about midway through the field I was confronted by the farm’s largest of six herd bulls.

“I walked on to circle behind the herd with the bull following me. I turned toward him, waved the cane in the air and yelled at him to follow the cows; he stood his ground.  I walked toward him and waved the cane and yelled louder at him. The bull charged me but I stood my ground, yelling and waving the cane.  He hit me mid-section throwing me backwards about 15 feet and 10 feet into the air. I crashed and crumpled to the ground.

“The bull ran over to where I was now sitting and grumbled at me. I was trying to get to the barbed-wire fence but was struck down again and again by the bull.  At one point I was petting him while trying to get up; but he knocked me down again.  He swung his head at my face and I bit his ear!

“From then on he continued to beat my body around the field until I decided to play dead. He walked up to me on my right and began to butt my head into the ground; I didn't move. He butted me across my shoulders, down my back, across my hips. At one point he hit me across my rib cage; I could hear the ribs breaking.  I cried out in pain. Again and again he charged until I blacked out.”


“When I woke up, I was flat on my back, looking straight up into a sky filled with billowy clouds and a bright sun. My arms were straight out at my sides; my legs were together and straight. I was surrounded by a circle of cows that stood chewing their cuds and slobbering all over me. I was covered with flies because of the drool and manure that I had been rolled in during the attack.

(L)  Colleen A. Barker

“I lay praying to God:  ‘Lord, please send someone to help me, send the bull away, don't let him hurt me anymore, don't let me cry out in pain. Don't let the cows step on me.’  I continued to pray over and over again.  Then the bull pushed through the cows around me, continued grumbling, sniffed me and licked my foot and bloodied abdomen.  Finally, he let out a deep growling grumble, quickly lifted his massive head and walked away.

“I don't know how long I lay there but I was shivering with cold and was going into shock.   I knew I had to get out of the field before the bull returned. It was an excruciatingly painful struggle to get to the barbed-wire fence.  When I did, I saw the owner’s wife and she and her husband immediately took me to the hospital where I spent 10 days recovering from a broken collarbone, eleven ribs broken at the sternum and a punctured lung.  They couldn’t figure out why my heart wasn’t punctured too and called me ‘The Miracle Lady”and ‘The Bull Fighter.’  I was asked if I knew what happened, if I knew where I was. I answered:

‘Yes, God showed me. I woke up in Heaven that day. I was in the palm of God the Son's hand.  I had on the same clothing that I wore that day but I was standing in the center of His palm. I could see the mounds of the muscle of His palm and the mounds of His fingers as they held me. It was bright, but not too bright; warm, but not too warm.

‘I felt the most incredible love in me and through me and around me! I don't know exactly what we talked about, but I know it was God who laid me back down upon the ground; after all, how many people do you know that go through something like this and end up being laid upon the ground in the shape of a cross?’


Painting by Colleen A. Barker *

“I know that my mission here on this earth is not done yet. I painted a picture of a girl and a boy in the hand of God praying.  My experience inspired those paintings.

“The late Pastor Albert J. Wollen told me, ‘When God wants you looking up at Him; He puts you in that position.’”

British actress Jane Seymour as a Bond girl in “Live and Let Die,” as a frontier doctor in “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman” and as Elise McKenna in “Somewhere in Time” with Christopher Reeve

Actress Jane Seymour's near-death experience

British actress Jane Seymour fell ill in Spain with a severe case of the flu during the shooting of the movie “Onassis: The Richest Man in the World.”  When she took a turn for the worse, she was taken to a local medical center where she was given an injection of penicillin. It caused a severe allergic reaction and a near-death experience (NDE).

"I literally left my body,” she later explained. “I had this feeling that I could see myself on the bed, with people grouped around me. I remember them all trying to resuscitate me. I was above them, in the corner of the room looking down. I saw people putting needles in me, trying to hold me down, doing things.
“I remember my whole life flashing before my eyes, but I wasn't thinking about winning Emmys or anything like that. The only thing I cared about was that I wanted to live because I did not want anyone else looking after my children.

“I was floating up there thinking, ‘No, I don't want to die. I'm not ready to leave my kids.’ And that was when I said to God, ‘If you're there, God, if you really exist and I survive, I will never take your name in vain again.’”
