WASHINGTON — Presidential candidate Ben Carson explained on Friday how God worked miracles throughout his medical career and also recalled that God once used him to save the life of a child diagnosed with a malignant brainstem tumor, although many doctors, himself included, predicted the patient would die.
Speaking at the Faith & Freedom Coalition's Road to Majority Conference at the Omni Shoreham Hotel, the 63-year-old retired pediatric neurosurgeon told the crowd that God calls people to different areas of the world in order for them to be used for His divine purpose.
Although Carson was named as the director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore in 1985 at the young age of 33, he said God prepared him for such a prestigious position at that age by calling him to work at a teaching hospital in Western Australia in 1983, a part of the world where there were only four neurosurgeons at that time. more >>
