In little more than ten years St. Paul established the Church in four provinces of the Empire Galatia; Macedonia, Achaia and Asia... Today if a man ventures to suggest that there may be something in the methods by which St. Paul attained such wonderful results worthy of our careful attention, and perhaps of our imitation, he is in danger of being accused of REVOLUTIONARY TENDENCIES.

ETHIOPIA - Woman Raised from the Dead
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Source: Joel News, March 11, 2008
Fatuma Shubisa, an Ethiopian mother of nine, fell sick and, after some time, she was found to have passed away by her mother who had come to care for her.
Word of Fatuma's passing reached the ears of a Christian missionary named Warsa Buta who was in the area. Acting on a promise he says the Lord gave him the day he was saved - that God would raise the dead through him - Buta sought out the deceased woman. A non-Christian crowd gathered as Buta continued to pray over Fatuma's sheet-covered body. They asked, "Why is this Pentecostal man praying over a dead body?"
Warsa related what happened next, "I had faith the Lord would work through me. I prayed as Peter prayed. 'Fatuma, be raised. I ask you in the name of the Lord. Come to life.' When I prayed that prayer - 'Fatuma, rise in the name of Jesus' - she sat up in the bed."
It had been 12 hours since Fatuma had died. During the time she was deceased, Fatuma apparently experienced some wonderful glimpses of Heaven which she talks about on a CBN video report.
