Pastor Eric Angeles and his wife Ruth were enjoying a relaxing day in their California home when they suddenly heard a troubling noise outside. They opened the door to see what happened, and they were shocked at the horrifying sight in front of their house.
A little boy had been hit by a car. And he was lying motionless on the ground.

The pastor's wife, Ruth, said she immediately began praying over the boy as people crowded around him waiting for help to arrive.
Ruth said, "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," she said. "And then I heard the spirit telling me, 'Call his name, call his name."

Ruth asked the boy's sister what his name was. The girl said it was Leonel. So Ruth instantly added his name to her next prayer.
"'Leonel, if you can hear my voice, call on the name of Jesus, Jesus can heal you,'" she said. "And then I was praying for that, crying out."
Her husband joined in on the prayer, calling Leonel by name. Though the pastor said Leonel was dead "around six minutes," their fervent pleas went on. Then, something amazing happened.
Leonel opened his eyes and began breathing again.
Though the little boy suffered multiple injuries, he survived what could have easily been a fatal hit. That's why the pastor and his wife believe they witnessed a miracle that day.
"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.
