An Example of the Only Universal Healthcare
Posted January 19, 2010
John 9:1 And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.
2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
I had the privilege this past weekend to meet some of Doyle and Kathy Mai's family. As I listened to Doyle's sisters share how they were raised, the story of Doyle's birth came up. I have heard Doyle share this several times in the past, but it was interesting to hear it from his sister's viewpoint.
Both sisters knew that Alba, Doyle's mother, had wanted a son. It was spoken how Alba had said to the Lord, "If You will give me a son, I will give him back to you."
Dorothy remembered how Doyle was born a "blue baby"; a defect where there is a hole in the heart, resulting in decreased oxygen in the blood which causes the baby to look "blue". She told of how her family was informed there was nothing that could be done for the baby, he would not survive. She spoke of Alba throwing the newborn onto the bed and saying "He's yours God, take him!" Dorothy revealed how she spent the next days crying much believing her little brother was not going to make it. But then both her and Glenda shared of their father's faith in God and how he claimed Doyle was not going to die, he would live. They both remarked how Lyle stood believing, and of their mother believing all she could. Doyle was healed.
It was the grace of God on Doyle's life that caused the defect. Alba had to give that baby back to God just like she said she would. That miracle is known in the whole family, and that child "with a bad heart" ended up being one of their school's fastest athletes, now age seventy-seven and still in perfect health, serving the Lord.
