Modern Day Miracle Witnessed When Nine Year Old Raised from Dead

Holy Spirit Led and Miracle of Life Followed

A pastor and his wife in California witnessed a miracle after praying for a boy who had been hit by a pickup truck.

Pastor Eric Angeles of New Hope International Christian Center in Norwalk was at home with his wife, Ruth, when they heard a loud noise outside of their home.  Seconds had passed, and then they heard shouting.

When he opened his front door, he saw a young boy who had been hit by a pickup truck lying in the street.  People who had responded to the scene of the accident noticed an absense of pulse.  There were no signs of life.


Angeles told CBN News that the boy was motionless.

Ruth, Angeles’ wife, rushed out to pray for the boy whose parents were beside him crying.


After a few minutes of praying, Ruth said that she felt the Holy Spirit instructing her to call out his name.

“I was asking, ‘Lord give this boy life, give back the boy his life’ and I was praying, ‘In the name of Jesus, in the name of Jesus, wake up, wake up,’ and then like a couple of minutes, nothing happened…and then I heard the Spirit telling me, ‘Call his name, call his name,”  she said.

Ruth asked the boy’s sister, who was kneeling next to him what his name was.  The girl replied, “Leonel.”


“So I was calling out, ‘Leonel!’ I said, ‘Leonel can you hear my voice…Leonel if you can hear my voice call on the name of Jesus, Jesus can heal you,’ and then I was praying for that, crying out,” Ruth said.

Eric also felt the presence of the Holy Spirit who spoke to him instructing him to embrace the boy’s father who was upset.  Eric was told to say the words, “Llame el nobre de Jesus.” which translated means “Call on the name of Jesus.”  Eric informed CBN News that he had uttered words that he did not understand, but spke by the unction of God.

Meanwhile, Ruth continues to call the boy’s name, and prayed that life be brought back to the boy’s body.

Moments later, 9 year old Leonel had blinked his eyes and gasped for breath.

Ruth said that when his eyes blinked one, she knew that he had been miraclulously brought back to life.  She said that God already answered their prayers, and commented that the people surrounding her were not Christians at all.  She told the crowd that his eyes blinked and that he was alive.

Leonel was diagnosed with a broken hip, broken ribs, a fractured skull, fractured spine, dislocated shoulder, blood clots, and dislocated collarbone.  Doctors commented that it was a miracle that the boy was even alive.


“I’ve seen some miracles of healing like goiter disappearing, blind eyes seeing. but this is the first time I ever experienced someone brought back to life from the dead,” Eric said. “He was dead around six minutes, his eyes were fixated and there really was no life in him at all.”
