“One day Benson Idahosa’s pastor was preaching a message (called) “All things are possible to all who believe. With God all things are possible.
” At the end of the service he walked to his pastor and asked “Pastor, this thing you are saying, if its true that means its even possible to raise the dead. The pastor said “yes I’ve never done it but if the Bible says it, then its true.” Benson said “okay, am going to look for one. He was either 21 or 22 years. From 11 am till 4:30 pm in the evening Benson took his bicycle with his Bible and went from street to street all over Benin City looking for a dead person. (…)
At 4:30 pm, he stopped for a visit at the home where his friend, Margaret stayed. It was either the 6th or 7th place to stop at. He found the place full of her relatives. There was agitation on every face, and many of the women were crying. (…) Somebody just died.” “It’s my uncle’s baby,” Margaret explained, wiping her tears with the back of her hand. (…) The baby had died at 9 am and it was 4 pm. She had already started changing colour. (…)
Benson turned to the father of the child. “The God I serve can bring your baby back to life,” He asked confidently. “Will you permit me to pray for her?” Startled, the father agreed, though he himself was not a Christian. Benson walked boldly into the next room where the cold, still form of the baby lay on the bed. He ordered everyone out according to Mark 5:40. There was tension and expectation as the relatives waited outside. But as a stubborn lady, Margaret stood at the door peeping in and out of the room just incase something happens. Idahosa prayed, “Child, be healed.” (…)
Suddenly the startled family heard the baby sneeze. They rushed into the room to find the infant awake and looking completely normal.”
