Affidavit of Oreen Armstrong

State of California
City and County of San Francisco

I, Oreen Armstrong, being duly sworn, declare:

In 1963 I had surgery on my breast at Cedars of Lebanon Hospital for the removal of cancer. I continued to have problems and I was hospitalized in Beverly Hills Doctors Hospital in 1971. Dr. Sullivan had x-rays taken and he was suspicious that the cancer surgery in 1963 and not eradicated all of the malignancy.

I was x-rayed and had a bone scan. My bones had deteriorated. I was told that the bones in my back looks like termites had eaten through them. I weighed only ninety-five pounds.

My brother had been shot and killed while I was in the hospital, and although my pains were severe I felt I had to go to my brother’s funeral. After the funeral a man gave me a pamphlet about Rev. Jim Jones coming to Los Angeles.

At the meeting Rev. Jones called my name and came to me and placed his hand on my face. His own blood began to trickle from his hand on to my face. I immediately began to feel all of my pains. Rev. Jones told me things that I had not told anyone. He told me to go back to my doctor for a check-up.

I left Los Angeles after a check-up from Beverly Hills Hospital gave me a discharge, and I was told I did not have to come in regularly for appointments any more.

I went to the Century City Hospital. They found nothing wrong. I stopped taking medicine.

I went to the UC Hospital and Presbyterian and Kaiser here in San Francisco. Bone scans, x-rays, urine tests, and blood tests have been given me, and no signs of the health problems I had before I was healed by Rev. Jones have returned.

I now weigh one hundred and twenty-five pounds, and I feel better than I have for years.

Affidavit of Lourece Jackson

State of California
City and County of San Francisco

I, Lourece Jackson, being duly sworn, declare:

My son, Richard Jackson, age 4 now, was born May 22, 1973, with three holes in his heart and a heart murmur. He was treated by pediatrician Dr. Teberg at Los Angeles General Hospital. Richard kept catching colds, pneumonia, and he even had heart failure once. He was in and out of the hospital every two or three weeks.

I came to Peoples Temple when Richard was six months old, in November 1973. I took Richard up to Pastor Jim Jones, and he held him for a few minutes. Later he sent me a message that he wanted to have me bring Richard to him every month, and in about four months, he asked for Richard to be brought to him every week, to be held for a short while each service.

In 1974 Pastor Jim Jones told me in service that Richard would have died of heart trouble because of the holes in his heart and that he was healed of that. I took Richard to Los Angeles County General Hospital for his regular check-up in 1974 after he had been healed. X-rays were taken of his heart and showed no holes remained in his heart; his heart was now normal. Thereafter I took Richard for yearly check-ups and his heart has always been normal. Since I began coming to People’s Temple and Richard was healed, he has never again had to go to the hospital every other week for colds or heart trouble like he used to. His health has been normal.

I, Wanda King, being duly sworn, declare:

in 1968 Dr. Edwin T. Johnson, 509 Haight Street, San Francisco, California told me that I had high blood pressure. I had severe headaches and dizziness. The doctor said it was highly unusual for a person as young as I was to have high blood pressure.

I went to the Research Program for Hypertension in the hypertension clinic at University of California Hospital in San Francisco for tests. No one could tell me why my blood pressure was high, but I was put on medication and was told that I would have to stay on medication for the rest of my life.

In 1969 I met Pastor Jim Jones. He called me out at the Redwood Valley Peoples Temple and told me he was going to relieve me of my high blood pressure.

I went back to the UC clinic, and my blood pressure was found to be normal. It has been normal ever since without medication. My headaches and dizziness stopped.

I, Polla Mattarres, being duly sworn, declare:

I was struck by a hit-and-run driver. On October 23, 1971 I was seen by Dr. Klein and admitted to Methodist Hospital, 1604 North Capital Avenue, Indianapolis, Indiana. X-rays showed that I had a crushed right femur.

On October 23, 1971 steel pins were inserted in my right leg below the knee. On October 24, 1971 two steel rods were inserted into my right femur from just above the knee all the way to my waist.

Dr. Klein said I would be unable to walk for at least four to six years and maybe never again.

On December 10, 1971 I attended a spiritual healing meeting held by Pastor Jim Jones as part of his cross-country evangelical ministry, at Indianapolis, Indiana. Later I decided to come to California and witness his miracle ministry.

During a service in Peoples Temple, Redwood Valley, California on April 12, 1972, Pastor Jones called me out and said he was reaching out to me and healing a bone.

On May 23, 1972 I was seen by Dr. Eugene Lapkass, Ukiah, California. X-rays were taken in which he found that there was a new strong bone that wasn’t expected to have mended so well, and he found only one steel rod where there had been two. He said it was a miracle.

Dr. Lapkass then sent me to Dr. Bernard Johnson, an orthopedic specialist, who performed surgery at Ukiah General Hospital on May 15,

1971. He removed the remaining rod and replaced it with another.

In June, 1973 during a church service at Peoples Temple in Redwood Valley I screamed out and began walking without my crutches. I have been walking comfortably without my crutches ever since.

In August, 1973, I returned to Dr. Johnson, who took another x-ray and concluded that I was a miracle, because I was not expected to be walking.

State of California

I, Mercedes Guidry, being duly sworn, declare:

From December 1970 to October 1975 I was under the supervision of Drs. Kennedy, Mosby, and Talbot for arthritis. It spread pain through my entire body and stiffened my joints so I was stuck in a wheelchair and continuously dependent on others for my basic needs. I was told by the doctors that there was nothing that could be done about it, that I would have to learn to live with it for the rest of my life. I stayed at West Jefferson Hospital, Gretna, Louisiana.

In 1972 I moved to Los Angeles and became a patient at Los Angeles General Hospital and private patient of Dr. H. Broderick on Manchester Boulevard. The doctors continued to watch my arthritic condition with little hope. The use of heat on my joint areas gave me a small amount of relief.

In October of 1975 I went to a healing meeting at People’s Temple Church in Los Angeles. Pastor Jim Jones called my name and told me things about my life and sent a cloth by one of his nurses for each one of my hips. I felt pressure on the top of my head and when I put the cloths to my hip joints pain left my entire body. I suddenly could move every joint freely. I was so excited. I could now move for myself, I was no longer dependent on a wheelchair or other people for assistance.

I returned to see Dr. Broderick in May of 1976. He was amazed, happy and excited that I was no longer in a wheelchair. “Hot dog, look what happened,” he said. “This is something else.” He took x-rays, blood tests

I, Lola Pikes, being duly sworn, declare:

On December 20, 1969 I became paralyzed on my right side. I had to wear a drop foot brace because of my condition. I also had to be assisted by someone at all times to keep from falling when I tried to walk. I was going to my doctor every week: Dr. Edward Shev, 3838 California Street, San Francisco. Dr. Shev told me I probably would never walk on my own again.

In June of 1970 I visited Pastor Jones’ church as a total stranger. I had never seen him before. He called me out and told me details of my life that no one knew but me and what my doctor had said to me. I had not discussed this with my husband or anyone else. He told me if I had faith to pull off my brace. After I pulled off my brace, I have not had to use it again.

Pastor Jim told me to go back to my doctor because he believed in keeping doctors’ appointments. The following week I walked into my doctor’s office. He was amazed. He could not believe I was walking on my own again. Dr. Shev said to me he did not know what had happened, but I really was a miracle woman. I continue to visit him; I go once a year. He said my right leg is stronger than the left. He still can’t understand what happened.

Affidavit of Edith F. Roller

State of California
City and County of San Francisco

I had been suffering from arthritis. I had pain in my right hip and had been to Kaiser Hospital and had x-rays. The doctor had diagnosed my trouble as arthritis, but said there was little that could be done for it, except to take aspirin. Later I had developed arthritis in my right hand, and I just resigned myself to its getting worse. Arthritis ran in my family. My mother had had it badly, and one sister had suffered from it for years .

In May, 1970, the third time I had attended People’s Temple, the congregation was singing “We Shall Overcome,” and I was caught up in a strong fervor of longing for equality of all. As the meeting ended, I went to the center in front to get a better view of Jim Jones. As I stood there directly in front of him, I heard him say, “Let’s see what we can do for this woman.” Everybody around me linked hands. I was only aware of Jim’s voice, which seemed to me to come from an enormous distance. I heard them say, “Come up on the podium with me.” I went up. Jim gently took my right hand, which was swollen, red, and painful, in his. He said, “It will be all right.”

The arthritis disappeared from my right hand. I found that the pain in my hip had also disappeared. These symptoms did not reappear, and I have never had any signs of arthritis since.

Affidavit of E. Christine Young

State of California
City and County of San Francisco

I, E. Christine Young, being duly sworn, declare:

I bumped my leg on the hospital bed at Children’s Hospital where I am employed. This was during the month of August, 1976. In a few days that same area began to swell and turn red and became very painful. A few days later while at work, the pain became so excruciating I could barely walk to the emergency room.

Dr. Michael Weeks, whose office was located at 3838 California Street, examined me and had me hospitalized. The diagnosis was thrombophlebitis. The pain radiated down my entire leg and the swelling went down to my foot.

I received a telephone call from one of the nurses at People’s Temple and she told me that Pastor Jim Jones was meditating for me and that I would be all right.

Shortly after the telephone call, the pain stopped and the swelling went down. I knew I was healed by Pastor Jim Jones.

The doctors planned to order heparin injections for me after vein scans were done. The vein scans did not reveal a blood clot.

Dr. Weeks called in Dr. Preston James to examine me. Dr. James is a specialist at 3838 California Street also. He found nothing wrong.

They discharged me that night but would not let me return to work for several weeks because Dr. Weeks was afraid the clot might

Our adopted son, Daniel James Beck, appeared to be very hard of hearing. We took him to Dr. Matthew Howard, 846 South Dora, Ukiah, California. Dr. Howard found scar tissue in both of Danny’s ears from the frequent battering by his natural mother. The audiometry test showed a substantial hearing loss. The doctor did not think anything could be gained from surgery.

In 1972 Danny went on a trip with the church. While he was away, Pastor Jones telephoned me and said he knew that Danny had a problem and that he could be healed.

When Danny came home from the trip, he could hear, as other people would, live television programs and normal conversation.

I had a history of bypass operations to maintain the circulation in both legs. In 1974 after an angiogram and blood tests, I was told by the doctors at Los Angeles General Hospital that another bypass operation would be necessary for both legs. Shortly thereafter I went to a healing service at People’s Temple Christian Church in Los Angeles. Jim Jones called me out and told me to go to the hospital and everything would be all right.

A few days later I checked into Los Angeles General Hospital for surgery. The doctors ordered a week’s tests, including a repetition of the angiogram and blood tests of a few weeks before. The doctors were amazed to find that the bypass was no longer necessary.

I, Jewel Wilson, being duly sworn, declare:

On August 18, 1975, I had a paralytic stroke on both sides of my body. I was semi-comatose and I had little or no awareness of what was going on around me.

I first was rushed to Kaiser Foundation Hospital in Hollywood, California located on Hollywood Boulevard. I was then transferred to the County Hospital in Los Angeles, California. My condition had not improved at this time. I had no sensation in my body and I still had no use of my extremities.

Rev. Jim Jones sent one of his associate ministers to me on September 11, 1975. This minister handed me a small red cloth and told me that Rev. Jones said that if I placed this cloth on my chest I would be healed. I did as I was instructed.

I was awakened the next morning. There seemed to be a bright light shining all around me and for the first time since the stroke on August 18 I threw up in my hands and by arms. I discovered I had regained use of both sides of my body again.

Relatives and friends came to see me that day, September 12, thinking I was still paralyzed and expecting me to die. When they left me the evening before, I could not speak nor move my body. When they returned the next day, I met them at the elevator.

I was running and rejoicing in the corridors. I was so very thankful that Rev. Jones had sent the cloth to me, and I know because

of Rev. Jones I received my healing. If he had not brought my healing about, I would not be alive today, and if I had lived, I would not have been able to do anything for myself ever again.

When I first joined the church in 1972 I had arthritis so bad that I could hardly make one’s day at work. The doctor gave me shots every three weeks to relieve my pain but he said there was no cure. I was walking by Pastor Jones and he stopped to talk with me. He asked me where I was having my arthritis pain. I didn’t even have time to tell him about my arthritis – but he already knew. I had spoken to no one about this. He asked me where I was having my arthritis pain most severe, I told him in my hands and neck. Then he rubbed his hands over the back of my neck and both hands. I never went back to the doctor again. My pain was gone, and still is gone today in 1977.

Pastor Jones healed me of heart ailment. I would feel a little pain now and then but I’d just ignored it. He sent a nurse to me and she told me Pastor Jones was saving me from a heart attack. He gave me a cloth to wear – I haven’t felt that pain anymore since then.

Two days later I went to meet Beatrice Bell and was arrested by the San Francisco police department. Charges were filed against me for armed robbery. I had nothing to do with the armed robbers, but I was framed to the point where there was clearly no way out. Pastor Jim Jones told me that he was sure that I was not guilty. I am sure that if I would have listened to what Jim Jones said about not being around Beatrice Bell for a while, I would not have been at the place I was arrested. Jim Jones said that even though there were 3 or 4 eyewitnesses saying that I was guilty, he knew that I was innocent. He told me not to worry, that I would not go to jail. Jim Jones then got me a very good lawyer and the charges ended up being dropped. If it was not for Jim Jones I know that I would have spent at least 5 years in prison.

They told me that even then it could not ever be straight at all and it would have to be watched for the rest of his life. By the time my son was six months old his foot and leg were straight and he is now three years old and you would never know that anything was wrong with it. When Jim Jones first saw my son when he was about 2 months old, he told me not to worry that his leg would be all right. For some reason, Jim Jones was right even after the medical doctors had said otherwise.

I, Ann Elizabeth Moore, being duly sworn, declare:

Jim Jones told Patricia Cartmell and I to please be very careful driving home from San Francisco back to Redwood Valley. Faith Kice rode with us. The road was wet and as we neared San Rafael on 101, a car was coming onto the freeway from a ramp into our lane – the right lane. There was another car in the lane next to us on the left. We were joking and listening to the radio and I saw the car coming into our lane. I said, “Patricia, watch out for that car!” She put on the power brakes, skidded and swerved into the car next to us on the left which pushed us over into the middle barrier, then after hitting this, the car went into the middle lane and was spinning rapidly. There were cars on the freeway behind us traveling at high speeds around 60-70 mph, which should have been hitting us. As we were spinning it was as if the cars were further behind us yet coming towards us, I yelled Jim’s name twice and the car stopped and a few drove around us at about 5 MPH.

When we were pulled over with the policeman, about 15 minutes later another car, alone, with no cars behind or in front of it went past the same wet spot where we slipped and spun. It seemed for no reason that it lost control swerved back-and-forth for about ¼ to ½ a mile but as we watched cars pass us, when they got to the same spinning cars about 6 cars smashed into this car which was in the same predicament as we had been only with more chance of avoiding the accident than we ever had. I know that because I called on Jim Jones the three of us were saved from death or terrible injuries because we should have been smashed from all sides as the car was that passed this slick area 15 minutes later.

He then gave me a warning that, like my grandfather and father before me, I would have died as a result of a terrible car accident in which my wife and child would have also been killed. Pastor Jones assured me that everything would be all right. Only a few days later while driving down the California coast with my wife and child a car coming in the opposite direction served straight in front of us. Suddenly a force grabbed the VW Bus we were driving and pulled it out of the way of the other car. The cars passed within inches of each other but miraculously no damage occurred. The circumstances were just what pastor Jim Jones had prophesied.

Pastor Jim Jones gave a general warning in a meeting that everyone should check their four wheels. Thereafter for two weeks the secretaries kept calling the warning around about checking your four tires. I kept putting it off. In December of 1971 I was coming from Sacramento River on highway 50 and right at the toll gate bridge coming into Oakland, I heard a bumping noise so I got out thinking it was a flat tire, but when I looked at the right axle it was on fire and burnt the car out entirely.

On December 16, 1976 on Wednesday at 10:00 PM, I was walking my dog. When a man on crutches and a cast on his left leg came up to me and said “My old lady put me out and I’m going to hit anybody in the head even you.” Well I had brought me a 38 gun for protection because I live in a high crime area and I’m handicapped myself. So I told him he was not going to hit me in the head with this crutches. He swung two times at me and I and the gun went off. The bullet went through his legs. Just then another shot came at me. I ran down some steps for my mother. It was too late. 5 police came and grabbed me and threw me to the ground and handcuffed me. “Where’s the gun?” They asked me. What gun I said. One police – a black man hit me with a glove with steel in it and broke my jaw and my ribs then took me to jail. Thanks to Jim Jones I was out in a few hours. My jaw and ribs were healed. I went to an emergency hospital and the doctor said all I had was deep bruise. I know that one man healed me and that was Jim Jones.

I, Vernetta Christian, being duly sworn, declare:

In January of 1977 I was miraculously saved through Pastor Jim Jones when he called my name out in one of his services. I was saved from the same type of blood disease that my mother died of back in April of 1956. Pastor Jones told me my mother’s name and the name of the doctor who my mother was under. Pastor Jones told me something that only I knew when he told me that I had always been worried about dying of the same thing my mother died of.

Truly, if it had not been for Pastor Jim Jones, I too would have been dead before the age of 35. I am truly thankful to Pastor Jim Jones. I know without doubt that Pastor Jones is truly one of the most concerned and caring people I’ve ever known and he is worthy of the recognition of [as] one of the greatest humanitarians of all time.

In the month of July, 1972, at Kaiser Hospital only a few short days after a delicate spinal fusion an insertion of a Harrington rod for scoliosis, I was lying on a striker frame in my room on the seventh floor and was dropped from the bed, crashing to the floor. All my evident vital signs were lost. I was immediately hooked up to a monitor. After a short period of time my vital signs appeared on the monitor. Secretaries of the Temple later informed me that at that time Pastor Jim Jones, during a Los Angeles meeting, announced, “Liane is in difficulty.” Dr. Brennen, my doctor and chief surgeon, stated after my x-rays, that my back was the best he had ever done.

I, Geraldine H. Bailey, being duly sworn, declare:

In January of the year 1973, I was called out by Pastor Jim Jones, in the Los Angeles Temple, and received a miraculous healing.

Pastor Jones told me that I had been having trouble with my throat. This was most definitely true, as I had been to the doctor for an x-ray of my esophagus area just the preceding week. The doctor arranged for me to begin treatment shortly after the x-rays were returned to him and stated that he would be able to diagnose the seriousness of my trouble at that time. However, before the time for my first treatment, I experienced the above mentioned call, Pastor Jones informed me that I had applied for a divorce in 1971 and had paid $300.00 for the services performed by a law firm in Torrance, California. He named all four lawyers in the firm exactly as they were listed on the letterhead. He also stated that my mother’s maiden name was Amanda Higgins. All of this was true and nobody else in the building could have known all these things about my life.

Finally, one of the greatest miracles of my life was performed when Pastor Jones informed me that I had a cancerous growth in my throat and he was about to save me from a horrible tracheotomy that would have left me speechless and that I would have soon died a horrible death. He asked me to step into the aisle and begin to regurgitate. I did as he told me and a nurse came to my side and held kleenex under my mouth. After about the third attempt, I could feel a sensation of membranes ripping across my throat and I spit out the blood cancer into the Kleenex. I was then given a drink of grape juice and for the first time in several months I could swallow without pain. I had not been able to wear a high-necked dress nor a string of beads for several years, but from that moment on I have had no such trouble nor any sign of cancer in my throat.

I, Exia Marie Duckett, being duly sworn, declare:

On the 16th day of April 1975 I was saved from dying of a heart attack in my home at 1664 Page Street, San Francisco, California, USA.

The details of this incident are as follows: several weeks before, Rev. Jim Jones had, during a Saturday night service at Benjamin Franklin School in San Francisco, California call me by revelation by the address “whose father died in 1957, please stand.” I stood and Rev. Jones looked at me a few seconds before declaring, “I’m saving you from dying of a heart attack on the 16th day of April this year” which was in 1975. I was given a red cloth by one of the nurses of the church and told to wear it. And as always when Pastor Jones states something about a matter it’s been proven to always be truth.

I believe April 16th at 12:00 PM was on a Sunday night-Monday morning. Church service was at Ben Franklin School on Geary Street in San Francisco, California and it was the first of two services that day, near the close. Rev. Jones made the statement “everyone should go to the Valley (Redwood Valley, California) for services there. No one should go home because lives are in danger and you all should be near me tonight for protection.” Well, I did as I wanted and rationalized going home anyway the study for my Physics class at city college. When I got home I took a bath and lay down to read, and went to sleep after a short while. Maybe a few hours later I awakened to magnifying sharp pains in my neck and chest near my heart. I went to the toilet to vomit but didn’t. I sat to urinate and while there became more ill by the moments. I had every or nearly every physical sign of being in a heart attack. I became so weak I couldn’t set on the toilet nor could I walk back to my bedroom, I had to crawl down the hallway. All I remember is waking up around 4:30 AM of the same day, hours later feeling much stronger and able to get to my room under my own power and into bed. I rest until morning and called my doctor. Robert Gerber, MD on Scott Street in San Francisco, California who saw me in his office later that day and who admitted me into Mount Zion Hospital for observations which lasted 5 days, and with no problems. I was released.

In the summer of 1976 in Holburk Arizona Jim Jones gave a warning to my dad Jack Beam to meditate for 2 minutes before we started driving the semi-trailer truck. And in our haste we forgot to meditate. After we started we started 10 miles down the road the truck jackknifed and turned over 3 times. The highway patrolmen said that everyone in the truck should have been killed. And other truck drivers said there was no way anyone could have come out of that accident alive. The truck was totaled and the cab of the truck was completely crushed. But no one was hurt.

In January 1977 I was healed of sugar diabetes by Pastor Jim Jones. I was called out by him and told through his prophecy that my father and mother died both of diabetes. Two brothers and one sister also. He also told me that I was suffering from a nervous condition from that disease which I knew I had. He told me to go to a doctor and get a urine and blood test.

A month later I went back to the doctor for the report and the doctor asked me why did I think that I had sugar diabetes. When there was no sign to show that I ever had that disease. Thanks to Pastor Jim Jones.

I, Christine Lucientes, being duly sworn, declare:

In the Summer of 1969 Jim Jones told me of a specific thought that I had experienced. He asked, “What does this mean to you, life is nothing more than a desert wasteland?” I tried to recall what relevance this had to me and it hit me with a shock that the exact words had gone through my mind a week earlier when I had considered suicide. I didn’t answer his question but he proceeded to tell me that there were people who cared for me, and assured me of the value of my life. Being a born cynic, skeptic and a critic I have gone over the situation with every consideration and have found no loophole. This was a thought that I expressed to no one. I believe that Jim Jones has supernatural abilities that I cannot logically explain but I cannot disclaim with that same logic.

In December 1975 in Los Angeles, California, Pastor Jim Jones stop me after I had touched the altar with my 1-year-old son Marlon Deitrict Porter, and told me that he had a heart defect that would cost him his life at an early age if not taken care of. After being given a cloth by Pastor Jones (that he had touched) for Marlon to wear, I was told to take him to the doctor and have his heart checked out. Two days later I took Marlon to Medical Consolidated Health Clinic at 38th and Vermont in Los Angeles, and insisted they check his heart thoroughly. After being given a series of tests, it was discovered that my son’s heart suffered a defect on one side, which caused it to be larger. No treatment was given because reason for defect was not established. I was told to bring him back for more tests in a week. In the meantime the cloth was being worn by Marlon as Pastor Jones had instructed. When taken to the doctor a week later, and tests were done again, Marlon’s heart was normal and the doctor stated he only needed more iron in his diet to finish regulating his heart before it would be normal.

During the spring of 1973 one, nine, seven, three, I received a long distance phone call from my father Glen Moton. I was staying in Redwood Valley California at the time. He told me that my mother, Viola Moton was dying and the doctors felt that she would pass at any time.

Upon hearing this, I contacted Pastor Jim Jones, and informed him of the situation and requested that he pray and meditate on her behalf. He said that he would. That very evening while services at Peoples Temple were going on in San Francisco California, my mother Viola Moton, started vomiting blood clots. After she had vomited up all of these clots, she recovered in a week. The doctors stated to my dad, Glen Moton after she had recovered, that it was a miracle that she had recovered because they didn’t know what was wrong with her. In the following four years, there has never been a relapse of this illness. My dad, Glen Moton, tends to be a skeptic on such matters, but he was so impressed by what had happened to my mother, Viola Moton, that he joined the church.

Pastor Jones was several hundred miles from the scene but called my neighbor Eva Pugh, and told her what had happened to me and said for her to look out-of-doors to see my horse running by. She looked out and witnessed my horse running by. She looked out and witnessed my horse running by her house just as he said it would be. Pastor Jones told her to call my mother Rosa Ijames to go get me and take me to the hospital. She took me to Ukiah General Hospital.

That I was operated on both my feet which was a Kindler procedure. Before going into my first operation, my doctor, Dr. Norman Asher on Post Street in San Francisco and two other doctors. One was a ligament specialist and my mom, Ellen Kerns DuPont, was there, examined my foot. The ligament specialist and Dr. Asher had me sign more papers because they were going to have to do more extensive surgery than planned because of a slipping ligament further up my foot. I was really concerned because of the seriousness. I had been told before I went in by Pastor Jones that everything would be all right. When I came out of surgery all the doctors came to me and told me how surprised they were because when they did go into the foot they couldn’t find the problem. It had disappeared. I thanked Jim Jones for saving me from an unnecessary extensive surgery because he had told me not to worry.

Another time Pastor Jim Jones and his wife Marcie and a few of the children including me were taking a walk around the grounds. All of a sudden Jim stopped and asked me if I swung on a pole at any time. I realized that he was talking about a Post stop sign. I used to swing on one every day after school waiting to cross the street. He told me not to swing on this pole anymore that he saw me in great danger if I did.
