Thomas Wyatt – 1891 -1964
Thomas Wyatt may well be regarded as the unsung hero of the healing movement as he remains to this day one of the least known and least documented healing evangelists.
His ministry in a nutshell
In truth his ministry preceded all of the major healing ministries and outlasted all but a few. He received the baptism in the Holy Spirit in the 1930’s and immediately launched a ministry of pioneer evangelism. After a spell in local church ministry in Portland he pioneered a radio ministry called ‘Wings of Healing’ which propogated the message of faith and healing. So successful was this ministry that by 1954 he could say, ‘Thousands of heathen have been saved and healed in the past year through this ministry of faith!’
The Healing Revival
In 1948 he predicted the coming of a great revival which came in full force the following year. He was able to aid early healing evangelists like William Branham. His already legendary ministry of evangelism, healing, faith and missionary endeavour became a spur to hundreds of young preachers across the US.
The Latter Rain Movement
Later, he was prominent in the genesis of the Latter Rain Movement and became a major exponent of its teachings.
