AM: Jesus Statue Missing In Wallace

Mike Feiler stands at the top of the steps of the former site of Providence Hospital in Wallace, Idaho. A century-old story of faith and miracles has captivated Feiler, sending him on a quest to find a lost statue of Jesus. When a massive wildfire threatened the hospital in 1910, Sister Anthony, the mother superior, fell to her knees, pleading with God to spare it and promising to erect a statue of Jesus if her prayers were answered. Shortly afterward, the wind shifted and the hospital was saved, and its deliverance became known as “the Miracle of the Coeur d'Alenes.” Becky Kramer's SR story here. (SR photo: Kathy Plonka)
