John G. Lake
John Graham Lake was born March 18, 1870. At the age of 21 he became a Methodist minister; however, he chose to start a newspaper instead of accepting a church ministry. In 1989, Lakeís wife, who was seriously ill, was miraculously healed under the ministry of John Alexander Dowie. The experience forever changed the direction of Lakeís life. He is remembered best for his missionary work in South Africa, but his ministry in the U.S. was also powerful. In just five years, 100,000 healings were recorded at the Lake healing rooms in Spokane, Washington. What he accomplished as a result of his intense regard for the Word of God is an example to all Christians of what is possible for anyone who will believe and act on the Scriptures.
