Question ID: 274769
Back in the 1930's, there was a street (and I am not sure of the exact
spelling) by the name of (sounds like) Ezuzu or Yzuzu or Izoozoo or
Izuzu Street whatever.  The miracles that took place in a house on
that street where limbs growing out, sight repair and deliverances. 
Miracles performed where quite out of tbe ordinary.  The people or
person who performed the miracles were of Christian origin - not
looking for occult/ science fiction even though it may sound like it! 
I believe there are books written on the topic - one by a woman and
the other by a grandson etc.  -  I need info on that.  I also need
documents, (other) books written on miracles around that time and
anything available on the matter.  Are there any documentary tapes
available by other researchers?   Thanks!

Dear ellengirl,

I think I know the location of miracle healings and the events you
have in mind; however, they definitely took place in the years
1906-1909/12, not in the 1930s.
So since the time frame of those healings is different, do you also
want the information on other miracles to refer to the 1906-1912
period instead of the 30s?

Although you don't have the year correct, you are almost certainly
referring to the Azusa Street Revival of 1906. The series of events
that took place that year in Los Angeles played a major role in the
development of Pentecostalism as a Christian movement in the United
States. It has been the subject of numerous books and articles.

First of all, here are some of the books written about that revival. I
am providing you with links to the book's descriptions at,
although of course the books can be purchased elsewhere.

The Life and Ministry of William J. Seymour
This book has been described as the most complete biography available
of Seymour, whose preaching launched the revival.

The revivals were truly an interesting part of American history. Of
course, like other movements of its kind, the revival had its
believers and its skeptics. Here are descriptions and excerpts of
various Web sites I could find about the subject:

William Joseph Seymour (1870 - 1922) 
This is a brief, sympathetic biography of Seymour that has some
interesting quotes from newspaper articles of the day.

Welcome to Azusa Street
This is a new, still-in-development site devoted to the revival.

Azusa Street Revival 1906
"Disgraceful intermingling of the races, they cry and make howling
noises all day and into the night.  They run, jump, shake all over,
shout to the top of their voice, spin around in circles, fall out on
the sawdust blanketed floor jerking, kicking and rolling all over it.
Some of them pass out and do not move for hours as though they were
dead.  These people appear to be mad, mentally deranged or under a
spell.  They claim to be filled with the spirit.  They have a one
eyed, illiterate, Negro as their preacher who stays on his knees much
of the time with his head hidden between the wooden milk crates. ..."

Apostolic Faith newspaper
Near the bottom of is
a collection of links labeled as "Research Links." These take you to
articles written in the Azusa Street mission paper from 1906 to 1908.
These articles include numerous eyewitness accounts that are
