When news about Joel Taylor, Bethel’s worship minister leader, and his children came out, many hearts were sad and thousands of people joined to pray for healing.
Taylor’s two-year-old son Jaxon and four-year-old daughter Addie contracted the same dangerous E.coli infection that threatened to take their lives. It all started when Jaxon came down with a bad case of diarrhea, which quickly became something much worse.
Despite the serious illness, the Taylor family never stopped putting their trust in the Lord and believing He would turn their tribulation into “a miracle testimony to the whole world.”
And indeed, the miracle happened!
“We’re going home,” is all Joel Taylor could say in an Instagram video as he walked out of the hospital with two healthy children Tuesday evening.
It’s a sight thousands of people have been praying for ever since. “Miracle! Thank you for all your prayers! Love you all!” Taylor wrote in the video caption.
“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you,” Taylor added, quoting Isaiah 42:3. “When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.”
