As a boy Melvin Banks fell in to a river and drowned.
Fished out they found no heartbeat, no pulse.
His mother held him in her arms,
praying till life came back into his body.

Melvin Banks

Brought up in Sunday school and church, he felt God close to him all his life. He never drank, smoked or ran after women. Just before his 17th Birthday something miraculous happened. While in a cinema he felt the urge to pray to God, in the seat before him he saw a vision of Jesus. He ran out and started preaching in the Wiltshire villages.

Soon after, in the county of Lincolnshire, miracles started to happen. People became cured of sicknesses. Ever since then he has been holding an ever growing 'Miracle Healing Service' and has conducted them in over 50 countries around the world.
