Crippled boy 'healer' to pray for Gladstone people: video

AN international evangelist, who claims to heal the blind, deaf and injured, will visit Boyne Island next month.

John Mellor has been invited by the Boyne Tannum Christian Church to pray for people in our region.

Church member Anthony Corbett said he had seen hundreds of "prayers and healings".

It's enough for Mr Corbett to be a firm believer in faith healing. 

"I grew up seeing some of it," Mr Corbett said.

"When you're young you just accept what you see but just in the last few years I've seen it happen so much.

"I'd say I've seen it happen more than 500 times."

"It's either everyone is a con or otherwise it's something very amazing God is doing.

"After you see it as many times as I have, you do believe it is real," he said.

Mr Corbett recalled moments in his church, the Boyne Tannum Community Christian Church, where people would pray for others, and miraculously they would feel better or even "healed".

The 'miracle man' Mr Mellor, has gained world attention through online videos of healings.

The evangelist has travelled around the world and been interviewed on programs A Current Affair and Today Tonight.

One of his most popular videos features a reporter from A Current Affair telling of being healed of a new complaint. 

"For me, I'm looking forward to seeing people's lives changed by being healed from sickness or disease," Mr Corbett said.

See Mr Wellor at the Boyne Island Community Centre from June 3 - 5.
