·         ‘I Died an Unbeliever’: Boy Who Came Back to Life After an Hour Shares Details of his Resurrection

Stephen Strang: Hello, everyone, this is Stephen Strang and welcome to this edition of In-Depth with Stephen Strang. One of the best movies I've seen in a long time is called “Breakthrough.” It has recently released into theaters and it is the story of a miracle; a miracle of life. It is the story of John Smith, a 14-year-old-boy from St. Louis who fell through the ice, was under the ice for about 15 minutes and then had no heartbeat for 27 minutes. It is an incredible story of a mother who believed God would bring her son literally back from the dead, and it happened.

Hello, everyone. I'm Stephen Strang and welcome to a special edition of In-Depth with Stephen Strang. Today, I talked to that mother, her name is Joyce Smith. I did a Strang Report podcast with her son, John Smith, that young man who is the one who died and came back to life and he is perfectly normal. I've met him. You'd never know that this happened to him. Yet, it is well documented in several hundred pages of medical reports. It's been in a book. Now it's been made into a major motion picture and my friend, Sammy Rodriguez, is one of the executive producers. We have been waiting for this movie, and I saw it the very first day it came out, on Easter. I decided I'm going to do everything I can to get people to go to see this movie. I tracked down today, his mother, the real mother. An actress, of course, played the part in the movie. But we're going to talk to Joyce Smith, the mother in just a minute and you're going to hear her account of this incredible miracle. Here's my interview with Joyce Smith.

Joyce Smith, it is so good to talk to you, especially after seeing the movie “Breakthrough.: I can't believe that a whole movie was done on this wonderful thing that happened to your life. What does it feel like to see your life and yourself portrayed on the big screen like that?

Joyce Smith: It's surreal in many ways, but it's also a rewarding because the story is getting to be told. Our hope for the movie is that people will walk away from it, if they don't know who God is, questioning who he is and wanting Him in their life, and for those that have fallen away that they will once again return. We've seen that even played out while going to the different movie theaters and seen it with other people, people giving their hearts to the Lord.

Stephen Strang: I went on Easter Sunday. I think that was the first day was in theaters. There was really good attendance at the what theater I went to, and it was very moving. You could just feel the emotion in the place is such a powerful, powerful story. Back when it happened, what was it four years ago? I remember seeing it in the press. We reported on it in Charisma magazine because of course, we believe in this kind of thing. The secular press rarely reports this and when they do they get it wrong, or at least that's my opinion. Then, of course, about the same time, Sam Rodriguez was reading about this and ported it into sermons as such a wonderful example of the Lord at work. I had the privilege of interviewing your son, John. He told me, of course, his version of the story. He said that Sam had had no contact with you. He just knew what he picked up from the press. And you guys saw him talking about it on TV and maybe contacted him and said, would you like to know more information? Am I saying that right? Maybe you could elaborate a little bit on how that connection was made?

Joyce Smith: My brother in-law saw him talking about this and I did also. My brother in-law said, you need to get hold of him and telling the whole story. If he thinks this is good, he needs to hear the whole story. And so, of course, I went to social media, Facebook and found him. I sent him a note thanking him and thinking I'll never hear back from him. I told him, I said, I'm John’s mother. If you'd like to know this whole story, I'd love to tell it to you. The very next day, I got a note that said, yes, I want to know the story. Would you like to be on TBN? I said, I'll shout this story from the mountaintop. How do you not tell the world that the Lord gave you your son twice? So, we ended up taking about a year to get out to see him, trying to get our schedules to match. I think the schedule changed three or four times. The day we got up there, there was a nice young man that came out of the green room. He was just as nice as he could be. We talked to him for about a half hour and when we were finished talking, he said, I don't know if you know who I am or not, but I'm Devon Franklin and I just did “Miracles from Heaven.” I think I want this to be my next movie. Well, I about fell off my chair. That was the last thing in the world that I expected or was looking for. So, it was just surreal even then.

Stephen Strang: I think everybody should go see this movie. It's very, very well done. Devon Franklin did a great job. But let's talk about this story. Your son was adopted from Guatemala. He was 14 years old. He loved basketball. He was a little bit rebellious. When I did my interview with him on the podcast, he expressed very clearly that he was not ready to meet God. In the movie, I don't know that that came through as strongly as he told me, but he said that. Then, of course, he and his friends were playing on the ice and your weather there in Missouri changes so quickly. It could be cold enough for ice and then it was warm enough they were practically in their short sleeves, playing on the ice. Of course, the ice was thin and they fell in. His two friends, for those who don't know the story and haven't seen the movie, had hypothermia. They were brought out of the water and taken to the hospital. But tell me your version and tell my listeners what happened to John that day.

Joyce Smith: They been playing basketball, which is the love of his life, something he and his father really cherish and share with one another. So, they had been on a losing streak and then they won a basketball game. So, that night, he said can I go and spend the evening with my friend, Josh. He said, let me spend the night with him. Then the next day was Martin Luther King Day and he said I can come home then. They’re all excited, and how do you tell them no? I didn't want him to go. I had a feeling that something was wrong. But I agreed and let him go anyway. So, the next day, I was expecting a call from Joshua's mother Sunday because we were going to change children. So, that morning, I'd been sitting at the table and I had read a devotion that a friend of mine, Mark Calloway, had written about what do you do in time of crisis? What's your go to? Is God your first thing? I thought that was interesting, but the minute I finished reading that my phone rang and it was Cindy. She was telling me that I thought we were going to meet each other. I was to pick John up, only to find out she said, no, we're not going to do that. She said there's been an accident. I said oh, you were in a car accident and she said no. She said John just fell through the ice at the lake and they just pulled him out and he doesn't have a heartbeat. That’s the tragic call that no parent ever wants. I thought it was very interesting that just before that, God was already preparing me for what was coming, that He loved me so much and cared about us so much that he had already sent a message to me. Who was I going to trust at that moment? I immediately started looking for my purse and couldn't find it, naturally. I finally found it, got my car keys and jumped in the car and frantically started trying to call my husband. He was in a meeting at work and naturally I couldn't get hold of him. So, I started going through my phone list of people call, my sister, people at church, anyone, the whole time I'm trying to drive to the hospital. But then, I stopped and finally got hold of one of our associate pastors and told him what was going on. I started praying. I thought, you know, I trust the Lord. I've been at Beth Moore's Bible study for the past three or four weeks and it was on believing God. In that study, it tells you every morning when you do your homework that you repeat these things: I believe God is who He says He is. I can believe God can do what He says He can do, and I'm believing God. So, there was just a tapestry of things that we're going together to build this beautiful story. God had already started weaving it together.

So, while I was praying and on the way to the hospital, I started to think, saying to the Lord. Lord, you’ve given our son to us for 17 years. You can't be taking him away from me. Please don't take him away. If he is not where he should be, give him a second chance. At that moment, I just had this peace come over me that the Lord was going to take care of it. I didn't know how He was going to do it. He was just going to take care of it. So, I got to the hospital. And of course, it was one of those days where there wasn't a parking place anywhere. So, I started looking around and frantically trying to find some place to park and nothing was coming up. Finally, a couple came out of the hospital toward their car and they were walking so slow and I was getting so impatient. I rolled my window down and said to them are you going to get into your car before Jesus comes back? I was not being nice. Cindy, my friend, heard me, and she came running with her and she goes, just get out of the car and go into the hospital and be with John. I'll stay here and get your car parked. So, I went in and they took me to where my son was. They took me into a small room. There was a very sweet, precious nun. Her name is Sister Donna and she came in and sat down next to me in the room. She didn’t ask me any questions. She just grabbed hold of my hands and she started praying with me. Again, that peace just started coming over me. So, they finally let me come back to the room where John was, and there was probably about 20-25 people in the room, professionals that were working on John, and also a couple friends and the parents of the other two boys. Both of their names were Josh; Josh Rieger and Josh Zander. We were just sitting there and I was watching a very tall young man do CPR on my son. His name was Keith Curry, and I could see the look of worry and he was just perspiring terribly. You could tell he was under such stress. The other night, we were at a showing of the movie together and he told me when John came in that day, we didn't know what his name was. We just called him John Doe. He was the first young man I'd ever done CPR on. He said, I just started saying to him, John, you are not going to die on me, you're not going to die on me, not even knowing that's who he was. I thought to myself, how awesome that even before I got there, somebody was already speaking life over John.

So, I sat there for quite a while and nothing was coming. John was still flat-lined on the heart monitor. They had him wrapped and a big huge bear hugger because there's a saying in the ER, that they're not dead until they are warm and dead. When they brought him in, his core temperature was only about 88 degrees. So, they were trying to get him up to normal temperature before they would call time of death. So, I continued to sit there and just pray and sister Donna was standing behind me with her arms on my shoulders and she was praying. Finally. I noticed this doctor, Dr. Kenneth Sutter, was walking back and forth in my peripheral vision. I thought this was really strange, he keeps staring at me. Finally, he came over and he knelt down beside me, said Joyce, he said, you can go up and talk to your son. I didn't realize at the time that he was getting ready called time of death because John's body temperature had reached 98 degrees. In his opinion, they had done everything they could possibly do to bring him back to life and nothing was working. Now was the time to tell me that he was dead and gone. So, I got up and I walked up to the end of John's bed and I put my hands on his feet and that was the only thing that was uncovered because of this big huge bear hugger. I thought back to what I had been studying the last few weeks about who God was. I also remembered the scripture that said the Holy Spirit that raised Christ Jesus from the dead. I thought to myself, you know what? You're either who you say you are, God, or you're not. My whole life, you have always been faithful. So, I made that decision, right at that moment that I wasn't going to accept anything else. But I was going to pray for my son. I listened to an interview today that Dr. Sutter did that essentially said the same thing Alex the nurse said. She had been there with John, and both of them have the same story. He said when I walked in the room, something else walked in the room with me, and it was so powerful that not only did it change the atmosphere of the room but it changed the temperature of the room. And I called out to the Holy Spirit to bring my son back, please bring my son back. It was in moment of prayer that all of a sudden, the monitor starts beeping. Alex has been there for 27 minutes, doing everything she possibly could and their staff said nothing was working. She was so stunned, she starts saying, I've got a heartbeat. I've got a heartbeat. I've got a pulse. She was stunned. You could hear it in here voice. It’s just amazing to me. She said something so powerful moved up John's body that it was pushing her and the people that working on John away from the bed. To me, this is how I look back on it. They have done everything they possibly could to bring my son back alive, but nothing was working. Iit was almost like God had set the table with all these professionals in there and said, OK, you've done everything you can do. Why don't you step back and watch what I can do? And my son's heart started beating; it was just miraculous to watch this. And of course, the minute that my son's heart started beating again, the room went from being deathly silent and sad and somber to becoming just a fury of trying to get things done. I went back over and sit down in my chair and I thought to myself, this is surreal. I have just watched God bring my son back to life. I had no idea of what it was going to mean for us in the coming months and years.

Iit was almost like God had set the table with all these professionals in there and said, OK, you've done everything you can do. Why don't you step back and watch what I can do? And my son's heart started beating; it was just miraculous to watch this. And of course, the minute that my son's heart started beating again, the room went from being deathly silent and sad and somber to becoming just a fury of trying to get things done. I went back over and sit down in my chair and I thought to myself, this is surreal. I have just watched God bring my son back to life. I had no idea of what it was going to mean for us in the coming months and years.
