This lovely testimony came on Facebook while I was in hospital this week – it’s a real miracle story…
Hi been reading your blog hope you are getting better fast! Just thought I would let you know the little boy, Sam you prayed for in Wellington at kings church who didn’t speak and started speaking after prayer ( don’t know if you remember?) anyhow his end of school year report, he is now 8 years old was all good apart from one problem….. He talks too much!!! Made me chuckle, and thank god. Xx
These are the original posts, 5 years ago:
Thanks for coming to see us the other week, it was a much needed boost for us all. One answer to prayer that I know of is that the little boy Sam who didn’t speak at all is now speaking quite a few words much to every ones delight.

Just thought i`d e mail you and let you know how sam is doing. the wednesday after you prayed for him he was having portage (thats where a trained worker comes to the house and plays with your child to do concentrated work on their weak bits!!!) she had been playing with him for about 10 mins she looked at me and said `its as if some kind of miracle has happened he is trying to speak so much more`……….. i just had to share with her what had happened, that was quite hard as she herself had lost a child with downs who came through all the heart ops but died from lukaemia. she was quite accepting though as she could find no other explanation for sam`s improvements. His speech therapist cant understand what has happened either. He still has a long way to go to catch up with others his age……….but what is huge is that he will try to copy sounds now which he never did before, and i have a peace that he will be ok.

i just wanted to update you on Sam,(3 year old who didnt speak,) who you prayed for at Kings in Wellington last year.
He saw his development consultant on Monday last week, she is amazed at the development in his speech in 6 months. He has gone from a child who could only say ‘eh’ for anything and everything to a child who is talking in sentences in less than 6 months.
He still has a few issues, but is now attending a mainstream playgroup and can get his point across when he needs too! i woke up this morning to hear my 2 boys playing together, Joe is 13, he was reading a book to Sam and he was chatting back saying words like crocodile……..amazing in such a short space of time. If i can sort it i will try to record the boys chatting and e mail it to you it is such a great sound from a child that 6 months ago professionals were saying might not ever speak.
thankyou for taking the time to pray with my family
