No Darkness Left Behind
I have been praying about what we can do to get involved in helping young women trapped in the global sex trade (“Leaving No Darkness Behind” by Nicole Partridge, December). Many children come out of orphanages at age 18 with no one to care for them. With little life skills and no family support, they are easily lured by evil traffickers. Reading about A21 lets me know that others are also concerned about this issue and a net is being drawn by the people of God to bring this evil to a standstill.
Be Charismatic (but not crazy)
I have to tell you how blessed I was by the encouraging words in “How to Be Charismatic Without Being Crazy” (by Greg Surratt, November). The term “born again” has become a laughingstock to today’s world because of how we portray ourselves. The author re-energized my faith by reminding me that there are people standing on firm ground for God. Our faith needs to be real to others.

What Happened Next?
Charisma reported the miraculous healing of pastor Delia Knox at the Mobile, Ala., revival as she was raised from her wheelchair after 22 years (Inform, November). The short article ended by stating she exited in her wheelchair, which leaves the impression that she was not actually healed. Knox has experienced a progressive healing and has returned to the revival to testify to the world, via God TV, that she now is able to walk normally and can do so in high heels. It is unprofessional for Charisma not to follow up this miracle with an updated report to its readers.

Editor’s note: Actually, we have given updates on Delia Knox’s healing on our website, charismamag.com. Check out these follow-up reports online, as well as other “progressive” healings, revivals and more. We even have new video of Knox leading worship. Due to the timeliness of developing situations such as this one, it’s far more effective for us to update readers through the Web than with printed reports.
