My name is Doyle Volentine, I have been in ministry for 24 years. The
most astounding thing I have experienced was in Sydney, Australia. I had gone
down to see a pastor friend of mine; I went to church with him. A man came up
and sat behind me. I turned and introduced myself. The man said he was from
Sri Lanka. “It’s nice to meet you and maybe we can talk later,” I said. During
worship service, I heard a loud crashing sound behind me. As I turned around
I saw the man’s wife holding him up. He had knocked chairs all over the place.
A friend of mine laid a hand on him and began to pray. I also placed my hand

because she knew that he had been having heart trouble for quite some time.
His name was Bernard and he was a statistician for the government of Australia.
I asked the daughter if she knew the same Jesus that her father knew? She said,
“No, I don’t.” She had gone to church but didn’t have any belief. I lead her in a
prayer of confession of faith in Jesus Christ. Then she said, “ I have cancer.”
She was a beautiful young lady of 40 years of age. I prayed a prayer of faith for
healing, with which she tearfully agreed. Tears were flowing, the mother and
father came and embraced their daughter. The father said, “This is my
