For this man, "Why can't God heal amputees?" has become "Does God even need to?"
Saw this in the local paper (I'll give the first few paragraphs as I think most would need to subscribe)

Two inches. That’s how far Donnie Rickelman can move the fingers on his new left hand.
But as far as the 36-year-old Linton resident is concerned, those two inches represent the beginning of a brand new life.
“When you’re an amputee, everything changes,” Rickelman said Wednesday, 10 days after receiving a hand transplant from an anonymous male donor. “I’m looking forward to doing all the normal things I used to do before the accident — getting dressed, doing personal hygiene, throwing a baseball with my 16-year-old son.”
