Julian Bonnet’s back was deteriorating. The doctor said that unless he got a special surgery to stabilize it, he would be paralyzed for life.
 
The problem was that the surgery cost $17,000 and Julian had no money. What’s worse, no one in Julian’s family believed him. They figured he was making it up. When Justin Cron (and later his brothers Philip and Nathan) met him on the Gainesville public square, Julian was at a loss for what to do. Just walking a few steps brought on excruciating pain. He was far from his home in Puerto Rico and had no options.
 
The Cron brother had learned to look for God in random situations by going on mission trips. They knew God was asking them to help Julian. They started a campaign and within a few weeks, had raised all the money.
 
Today Julian is getting his surgery. Next week, he’ll be healed. His whole life has changed in the matter of a few months.
 
Katie Rowland’s video was a big part of the miracle. When his family saw the doctors describing his clinical condition, they realized that he had been telling the truth. They reconciled with him and gave half the money he needed.
 
Sometimes God gives us miracles that, though they don’t break any laws of nature, are no less amazing.

  • Hey Seth,
    This is what Justin Cron said about the surgery:
    “The surgery went well. I just spoke with the doctor and they said that there was no issues and he is now going into recovery. He will be in his room at 10:30am and I will update you again, when see him in the hospital here in a couple hours.”

  • Praise God! Just a small correction, it was Justin that met Julian first but all 4 of my children took him in and helped raised this money for him. My heart as a mother is so proud and happy of the LOVE that has been show from everyone. And because of the LOVE his surgery was accomplished. Thank you all and PRAISE GOD!!!!!
    I LOVE YOU JULIAN 🙂

  • That’s wonderful news! The whole Cron family (including Pamela, their mom) had a huge part to play in this miracle.

  • What a rush! Love the missional life we get to live. Thanks Julian and Crons for being obedient. Imagine the things we can do if we just…

    Praying for quick and full recovery!

I'm motivated to join God in his global reclamation project. He's on the move, setting his sons and daughters free from their places of captivity. And he's partnering with those of us who have been freed to go and free others.
