Millions of people have flocked to Abadiania, a remote town in Brazil, in search of a miracle. They came with every kind of ailment you can imagine—cancer, arthritis, depression—all to see one man: John of God.

While in Brazil, Oprah's team watched as John of God performed surgeries seemingly without anesthesia or sterilization.
In 2011, Oprah spoke with skeptics and believers alike. "We're bringing you stories of some of the most extraordinary, unexplained phenomena in modern history," Oprah said. "Be your own judge."
