Pastor claims a woman’s amputated toes grew back during a prayer service — now people want proof

A Missouri Christian pastor has claimed that a woman’s amputated toes grew back during a prayer service. Now, a website has popped up asking for people to provide proof of the alleged miracle, The Kansas City Star reported.

During the Week of Power conference held March 12 through March 16 at James River Church in Springfield, Pastor John Lindell told his followers that a “creative miracle” took place, where a woman named Krissy Thompson had her amputated toes regenerated. Alongside Lindell was guest speaker Bill Johnson, the senior leader of Bethel Church in Redding, California.

“As the ladies prayed for Krissy over the next 30 minutes, all three toes grew, and by that point, were longer than her pinky toe. Within an hour, nails began to grow on all the toes,” Lindell said in a livestream.

Thompson reportedly had her toes amputated after she was shot by her former husband in 2015. Lindell said Johnson asked in a prayer group if anyone needed a “creative miracle,” and Thompson responded.

Video of Dines claiming the alleged miracle to be true was posted to Twitter by Friendly Atheist’s Hemant Mehta, where she says, “Tonight, I can stand on my tippy-toes. Listen, do you understand? I can stand on tippy-toes. No, I couldn’t do that because I didn’t have toes to tippy on.”

The website is asking for anyone with video or photographic evidence of the alleged miracle to come forward.

“If you have photographic/video evidence this occurred, provide it and we will share it on this page. So far James River and Krissy have provided zero proof,” a message on the website states.

Lindell has also claimed that the church has the power to raise people from the dead.

“I’m not saying everybody will be raised from the dead, I’m just saying some people from this room, you’re going to raise people from the dead,” the pastor said. “It’s just gonna happen.”

Multiple news outlets have reached out to Lindell and Thompson have received no response.
