Missionary B.L. Anderson, of the South China Missions, wrote:

“The evangelist at Hui An had a singular experience this season. His little boy, about five years old, was taken with the bubonic plague; and, from all appearances, it seemed that he would soon be silent in death. The only hope of his recovery was in God. The child earnestly urged prayer. ‘Pray,’ he said; ‘there is wonderful power in prayer.’ One evening the believers, also a number of others, gathered at the chapel and united in prayer for the child. There was a heathen man in the congregation who felt the presence of the Spirit of God; and that night, while sleeping upon his bed, he had a view of Jesus standing by the child.

And he was very definitely impressed that the boy would recover. The boy did get well; and the heathen accepted Christ as his Saviour.”
