"It is worth noting that Artur's family name: Rachamimov means "Of God's Mercy." It is actually the Hebrew name of our entire ministry: Ohalei Rachamim ... Tents of Mercy. God poured out His mercy upon Artur, Ilana, their children and our entire congregation when He saved this man from death or permanent disability. Halleluiah!"
 
 

Artur and Elana
Artur recovering by the grace of God
On Sunday, June 19, Artur Rachamimov came within a fraction of an inch of being crushed to death. Double-checking the clearance between a truck and the warehouse wall, his head was caught when the truck driver failed to heed Artur's signal. The 32 year old father of two was rushed to the hospital unconscious and bleeding profusely.

At Tents of Mercy we were notified during a staff meeting and went to prayer. Later that day, updated from the hospital that the situation was still critical and that Artur was in surgery, we prayed again. The burden for God to shower mercy on our brother was accentuated, knowing that his wife and small children would be left without his joyful strength if he was lost.

After emergency surgery, Artur was kept in an induced coma to allow for the trauma to subside. Others via the global intercessory network joined us in concerted prayer. Then God answered. Within a few days he emerged from danger and began to communicate with his family, who had already speculated about where he should be buried! It has been amazing to see such dramatic progress in Artur's medical condition. His head injury has caused no major permanent damage - internal or external! He is talking, walking and hearing perfectly. In his condition, all these signs point to a successful recovery. His memory is undamaged and his beloved wife and their two children have been strong and resilient throughout this journey. Please continue to pray with us for a full healing of Artur's eyesight and for his life to be a testimony to the non-believers around him.

Just four weeks after this near fatal accident, Artur was back attending our services at Tents of Mercy. While the whole congregation rose up from their seats in a spontaneous ovation of praise, Artur walked unassisted to the bema and gave testimony to the wonder of God's grace and healing power. We are praising our Messiah and Healer for such a welcome and remarkable gift. It is worth noting that Artur's family name: Rachamimov means "Of God's Mercy." It is actually the Hebrew name of our entire ministry: Ohalei Rachamim ... Tents of Mercy. God poured out His mercy upon Artur, Ilana, their children and our entire congregation when He saved this man from death or permanent disability. Halleluiah! It gives us great joy to share this miracle with you and to encourage you to "call on the Lord who is worthy to be praised." (2Samuel 22:4)

The Bible tells us that our times are in God's hands. Yet too often (speaking personally) it's hard to really accept this truth. This wonderful story fully illustrates how lovingly God can, and does, work in our lives.
