Our Philadelphia and Indianapolis campaigns were a resounding success as scores upon scores were healed in each service. One of the many dynamic healings is that of Mrs. Ella Mae Kirby of 617 N. East St., Indianapolis who was warned that very evening of those who were planning assault against her person. She writes that all of the circumstances described to her by this Prophetic Voice (Oracle) took place exactly as stated, but she was marvelously protected from brutal attack just as Pastor Jim Jones said she would be. She rejoices with gratefulness.

In our last San Francisco meeting where thousands were in attendance, Mrs. Etta Nixon, 1622 Ingalls was literally raised from the dead. Even after she was given her prescribed nitroglycerine by the nurses, there was no response in pulse or heart. It was not until God working within Jim Jones strolled down to her calmly and meditated for her that she was restored to life and the normal body functions began to re-appear. Within seconds she was jumping to her feet with energy in [and] gratitude. In still another outstanding example of the Christ within our midst, Miss Jane Mutschman of 1010 Fell St., San Francisco was called out by name and give an exact and intimate details of her life that no one could know lest God Reveal It. After the word was sent by Pastor Jones, her body was immediately relieved of the excruciating pain of a cancerous growths which had plagued her for many months. In every service those in attendance witness the blind regain sight, the crippled walk, protections of every kind are given to scores including the marvelous protection from what would-have-been a fatal accident in which all four of the children of Mrs. Bonnie Beck of 400 Empire, Ukiah, Calif. would have been lost. Due to this divine protection, every child was totally made whole when doctors had grave concern for their well-being. Pastor Jones, who was thousands of miles away at the time of the accident, told others on the bus of his concern of the Becks back in California to the detail of the exact place on the road, where danger await [awaited] them. He said all would be alright and no one would have serious injury. It is interesting to note that a warning was given months before by Jim Jones never to travel in the distance on a holiday without special permission and this incident did occur on a holiday. This healing ministry in no way opposes medical science, but rather works hand in hand with it. In over 82 cases as a result of Pastor Jones special insight and encouragement, fatal diseases were discovered in persons who would otherwise not have gone to their physicians.

Message from the Prophet: If one is interested in coming into full Sonship after my example he must be jealous of none; a fount of mercy, treat friend and foe alike; never allow emotions to rule; have no special lives – treat all alike (love all men but not too much). Our actions should be of such a character as not to cause dread. Renounce all accomplishments from the fruit of your work. (Do nothing for reward – but rather for the sheer joy of doing.)

We are in the body of Christ dispensation: Jim Jones, our constant shepherd, leads us in a daily service work that has created an atmosphere of refuge and salvation. But we need every hand in this worthy endeavor so please send your donations as you, too, may have cause to call upon your only true friends in times of crises. We now have three dormitories, senior citizens homes and two other residences that need your support urgently.
