Do You Believe in Miracles? Kathryn Kuhlman believed Nothing Is Impossible. Concordia, Missouri welcomed a Godsent world changer. International healing evangelist Kathryn Johanna Kuhlman was born on May 9, 1907.
The father of Kathryn Kuhlman was very affectionate. He loved her and she loved her “Papa.” She always felt loved and wanted and cried years after his death when she talked about him. He taught her organizational and business skills.
Kathryn Kuhlman’s mother was a homemaker and an “excellent Bible teacher.” Initially, she was harsh toward Kathryn. Kathryn had given her mother a birthday surprise on wash day when her mother was not presentable. She was furious and Kathryn had to stand and eat all the cakes the neighbors brought. Years later, Miss Emma received the Holy Spirit in her daughter’s meeting. Kathryn remembered being hugged by her, it seemed, for the first time.
When Kathryn Kuhlman was 14, she was born-again at her mother’s Methodist church. In a passionless voice, her father said, “I’m glad.” He disliked preachers and only attended on special holidays for Kathryn. Afterward, they became members of her father’s Baptist church.
At age 17, Kathryn Kuhlman began ministering with her sister and brother-in-law. She assisted them for 5 years. Although financial difficulties developed, she remained dedicated, committed, loyal and determined. Kathryn also learned “patience in her prophetic place.” She realized faithfulness would lead to future blessings. Like Barnabas and Paul, Kathryn parted with their blessing.
Kathryn Kuhlman was offered a chance to preach in a pool hall. Her “Yes,” led to the miraculous. The Kathryn Kuhlman Ministry reputation of salvation, faith, hope, prayer and healing, grew. She didn’t have denominational and organizational support. She trusted God for her finances and resources. She built at least 25 churches.
Evangelist Kathryn Kuhlman
Kathryn Kuhlman conducted at least 125 healing crusades, annually. Globally, people came from all denominations and lifestyles with disabilities and sickness. Her audiences totaled at least 20,000 and she touched millions. Prominent faith healers were there. Benny Hinn’s life and ministry was impacted when he received the Holy Spirit in a Canada meeting.
The Christian radio program, “Smiling Through” was started by Kathryn Kuhlman. You can watch her today, on secular and Christian video channels online. She started a weekly Christian broadcasting network program called, I Believe in Miracles.
Strangely, Kathryn Kuhlman scanned the Shrine Auditorium after the meeting. Was this her last one? Three weeks later, open-heart surgery for cancer failed. She didn’t want prayer. She wanted to “go home.” On February 20, 1976, she left earth at age 68, with a heavenly glow.
