Healed of Crohn's Disease

First and foremost, I would like to give thanks to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who without, none of this is possible. Secondly I want to thank all the prayers of the people who love and support me, especially my father, who knows the power behind prayer. And lastly from the deepest part of me, I want to thank everyone at Word of Life Church, who gave me such inspiration and encouragement for my healing. And I want to thank all of them for staying true to the written Word of God and all the materials and resources they provided for my healing. Thank you!

I was saved in 2011 at Green Pastures Community Church at the end of my senior year in high school. Everything changed after that. I became a new person with a new heart and love for people. I finally understood what they meant in "Amazing Grace" with the line, "was blind but now I see." I saw the error of my ways and for the most part really took great strides improving all areas of my life. However, being a young adult in this day was a struggle at first. Then college came around and I found myself caught up in a few sins that I had back in high school. I hated the decisions I made and came under great guilt and condemnation for my actions. I thought to myself "how in the world am I doing these things while I am saved?"  Low and behold, I believe this attitude opened up a doorway for Satan to put a disease on me.

Later on in the spring during my second semester in college, I started having terrible stomach pains. I just thought they were kidney stones since my mother used to get them and I thought they would pass and the pain would go away. But the pain grew worse and I came down with a high fever and tried fighting it off for the next couple of days. I didn't get any better and didn't eat much, so the next morning my mother and I went to our family doctor. Things were going normal, he did a quick check up on me, said it was probably the flu, and prescribed me some medication to knock it right out. Then I began to explain to him the stomach pain and I reassured him that it was probably just kidney stones. However, the area where I was having this pain is exactly where my appendix is located. A look of worry ran across his face as he made me get a urine sample. As I walked back from the bathroom, my mother was standing with him and they were talking about me going to the hospital for a blood test. All of this talk and me feeling weak from not eating much caused me to faint right there in the doctor's office! It was just for a second but all of this information hit me so fast it was surreal. They called an ambulance and I was sent directly to the hospital from there, even though I felt good enough to go on my own power. However, that proved to be beneficial because I was able to get right in and they were able to start the testing.

I spent the next 3 days and nights in the hospital and hated every second of it. I had multiple test done to me with no conclusive results. I also had many doctors from all different specialties come talk to me trying to figure out exactly what was wrong with me. The last day I was there they finally confirmed that it was not my appendix and that it was most likely an IBD, (inflammatory bowel disease) related problem and I would need one more test done. But I was able to go home only to return in a few days for my last test. This test was a bit more complicated as I had to go under anesthesia. Thankfully everything went smoothly and I found myself back in the doctor's office, but this time I was waiting for results.

I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease at 19 years of age and my whole life flipped upside down. I made it through my first year of college and then it happened. I experienced the worst summer of life. I won't go into too much detail because I don't want to relive some of those moments. But over the next 3-4 months I lost 40 lbs and my diet was nothing more than crackers and apple sauce and maybe eggs if I was having an ok day. It was a struggle mentally going from a very healthy varsity athlete one year, to a physically weak person who was robbed of almost everything I loved to do. Every day tasks became difficult with the pain I was under and the heat from the summer only made things more challenging. Again, I made it through and year 2 of college was coming around.

What I needed most at that moment was a glimpse of hope as fear overtook me. I thought I was going to be this sick for the rest of my life. One day I had a really good talk with someone very close to me who gave me great advice and told me exactly what I needed to hear. Throughout this whole time I would not admit that I had Crohn's Disease. I simply could not accept that fact and tried everything in my own power to overcome it, but I couldn't. I would deny my symptoms (which is a good thing to do) but I was denying them based on my strength and not by God's strength. So the advice I received was to take authority over my disease. I first had to accept that I had it and begin to do certain things to improve my health. So I talked to a dietitian and got a very good list of the foods that I should and should not eat. This helped very much as my inflammation went down from better food choices. I became well enough to start my second semester of college and did just that. So right now, I just want to thank God for laying out the steps that I needed to take in order for me to get to a place where HE could operate. At this point I knew nothing about divine healing or the power that was behind the Name of Jesus. But I soon would.

As my semester progressed I went from being good the one week to having a "flare up" the next. After the first month I was in constant pain again. My medications were not doing the job and my doctor recommended that I should go on stronger medication. But one of the possible side effects was cancer!  However, the medication was very effective and I was running out of options. As a desperation decision, I skipped class the one day and drove to this peaceful lake with just me, my bible, and this little book called, "The Healer's in Your House", by Kenneth W. Hagin. I was praying and reading trying to get a sign, or something, just anything that would help me. I knew school was not the answer because I saw no real future in the degree I was going for and I simply couldn't take another day sitting in class hunched over in pain. All of a sudden the wind blew open to the back of, "The Healer's in Your House" book and there was my answer.  It was Rhema Bible Training College. I knew right then and there that was the best option for me. I made my decision to drop out of college and next year I would attend Rhema. I told my Dad the exciting news that Saturday morning on our way to a men's fellowship breakfast at Green Pastures Church. I thought if I told anyone I was dropping out of college they would be disappointed, but to my surprise, my dad was very pleased with my decision and that gave me a lot of peace!

The next few days my dad did some research and found out that the Pastor and his wife at Word of Life Church in Allentown graduated from Rhema. We decided that it would be a good idea if we went one Sunday. So we did and I have to admit I was a little hesitant at first as I walked down the steps into a basement of the building of the church. But as soon as I opened those doors I was greeted with the most compassionate, warm, good-hearted people I have ever met in my life! We told them about my situation and praise God they had an answer! I will never forget Pastor Tom asking me, "do you know the Scriptures 1 Peter 2:24, and Isaiah 53:4-5?" I said "no" and he quoted them with an emphasis on, "by HIS stripes you were healed." Finally I found my answer to healing. Each week I went they all encouraged me so much and I heard the Word being preached  that it is God's will for me to be complete healthy and whole again. This is contrary to what the doctor told me as he said I would have to live with Crohn's the rest of my life. Then this wonderful and loving Godly woman, named Rhonda Butz, gave me many healing scriptures, tapes, books, websites, and any other resource you can think of concerning healing. I began to go over the Scriptures 4 or 5 times a day. And I constantly listened to healing tapes over, and over, and over, and over again. I finally reached a point where one Sunday Pastor Tom said, "Andrew it looks like you're ready for us to pray for you." So I went up front, was anointed with oil, laid hands on and really felt the anointing of God all over me. I improved so much after that. It took a couple more months to fully receive my healing. But thank God when I got it, I really got it! Every symptom left me and I knew I never was going to be sick again! I give all my thanks and praise to Jesus! Because the name, Crohn's Disease, is under the name of Jesus! Halleluiah!

I  gained a good amount of my weight back and am now symptom free. I can go back to eating the foods I love to eat and I make better eating choices now that I have a little more information in that area. But none of this would be possible if it wasn't for Jesus. I just tell people all the time it's all because of Jesus. I also received a lot of other resources from Word of Life such as, Who I am in Christ, which has delivered me from all sin-consciousness and condemnation. I make it a daily routine now to read those and my healing scriptures to really build on those foundational teachings of the Bible. Now I see a major difference in my life as I put faith into God's word and allow it to just work in me. None of this could be possible without Jesus and all the great people of Word of Life Church. Thank you ALL and praise God because he is GOOD!   Andrew Remaly.

Healed of Diabetes

Just about one
year ago in June 2012 I was rushed to the hospital in very dire condition.  I learned that I had a blood sugar reading of over 700 which, in fact, put my very life at risk.  I spent numerous days in the hospital and was diagnosed with diabetes.    After being released, I was put on heavy control medications and insulin which I was required to take daily.  I was also instructed to take classes to help manage my condition.  It was at these classes that I was told that “you will always have this condition until the day that you die.”  I did not receive or believe that for one moment and I, in fact, told everyone I met, including the doctors, nurses, and experts, that God is a healing God and that I would receive healing and would overcome diabetes with His help.  ne year later I have been tested and have been taken off insulin shots and all but one precautionary medication.  The testing lab nurses and doctors are amazed!  To that end God receives all the glory!!  The testing lab has indicated that in six months, all remaining the same, I will, indeed, have beaten diabetes!!!  I know that I already have the victory and that diabetes has had to bow its knee to the Name above every name, JESUS!!!  Debra Nicklas

Healed of Kidney Stones

Throughout the years I’ve had several attacks of kidney stones.  Prayer and standing on the Word of God has brought victory every time. Twice I went to the E.R. for a pain killing shot to help me manage the pain until my healing was manifested. The last time I had an attack, the pain was so severe.  It was late on a Saturday evening, the E.R. doctor wouldn’t give me a shot for the pain unless I had blood work and Xrays taken. The Xrays showed I had several kidney stones. I told the doctor I would be preaching in church the next morning, at which he laughed in an unbelieving way. They scheduled me to return on Monday morning for an ultra sound. All pain left, I conducted the Sunday morning service as usual, and next day went for the ultra sound. To the doctors amazement there was no sign of any kidney stones!! God is so faithful. Tom Kirkman

Healing Testimony By:  Rhonda Butz
  Healed of Graves Disease

 Near the end of the year 2003, I began noticing symptoms in my body that, after a period of time, began to concern me. Among them was an involuntary loss of weight and an excessive appetite. I was losing much weight despite the fact that I was actually forcing myself to eat more food to try to gain weight. When I realized something was very wrong, I went to my family doctor to find out what it was. After running many tests, the doctor informed me that I was suffering with Grave’s Disease and recommended that I seek a specialist in that field. I had never heard of Grave’s Disease. My doctor explained that it was an autoimmune disorder. He explained that there was no medical cure for it, but that they could do a procedure that would permanently destroy or shut down my thyroid, and I would have to take medication for the rest of my life. Well, I didn’t like the idea of having to take medication forever, nor did I like the idea of killing my thyroid. I’m pretty sure God gave me a thyroid for a reason, and I needed it to work. Fortunately for me, by this time, I had spent a lot of time studying God’s Word in the area of healing. I saw what God had to say about sickness and disease. I learned that Jesus not only paid for all our sins on the cross, but He also bore all of our sicknesses as well. (Isaiah 53:4,5, and Mat. 8:16,17) I knew that if Jesus bore Grave’s Disease for me, then I didn’t have to have it. So when the doctor gave me the report of Grave’s Disease, I did not accept that disease as mine. Yes, I had all the symptoms in my body. And yes, the blood tests revealed that I had Grave’s Disease, but I knew that I was going to walk free of that disease because of what Jesus did on the cross 2000 years ago. So I prayed to ask God how I should walk this healing out. He impressed upon me to trust Him and to trust His Word. I also felt led to do some things in the natural regarding nutrition and supplements.  Everyday during my normal morning prayer time and throughout the day, I layed my hands on my thyroid and thanked God that I was already healed by Jesus’ stripes. I used my authority and commanded that disease to leave my body. I commanded my thyroid to function perfectly well the way that God had created it to function. I continually spoke life over my body. I quoted healing scriptures several times a day. I did not accept that disease as mine. Instead I saw the enemy trespassing on my body, and I refused to allow Grave’s Disease to stay. My doctor had prescribed some medication for me to take. I did begin to take the medication, but I said to myself ( not the doctor), “I will take this medication only until my doctor tells me to stop taking it because I am healed!” I saw no change in the symptoms at first. My doctor wanted me to get blood tests done monthly to monitor the disease. There was no indication of any change in the blood work for the first several months. But then, something started to change. The blood test results began to improve and little by little, the symptoms that had concerned my previously started going away one by one. Within five months, my doctor said to me, “ Mrs. Butz, stop taking that medication. You are healed!” I thanked Jesus for healing my body from Grave’s Disease, but it wasn’t until a few years later that I realized the magnitude of this healing. I had been scheduled for another test to be done by another specialist. Of course, they need to know your previous medical history. I had to be honest with him and tell him that I had Grave’s Disease earlier, but that I do not have it anymore. He said that he had never heard of anyone being healed from Grave’s Disease and indicated that I was very lucky. Luck had nothing to do with it. Jesus healed me 2,000 years ago on that cross, and I just believed Him. I have the test results to show that I had Grave’s Disease, and I have the test results to prove that it is gone. All praise to Jesus!! Rhonda Butz  

                                                              Healing Testimony By: Rhonda Butz                                                                          Healed From Cold & Flu

My husband and I were planning on having dinner guests after church one Sunday.  We had invited a couple from church to come to our home on one particular Sunday.  Due to each of our schedules being quite full, this was the only Sunday that would work for each of us over about a 6-week period.  So we were looking forward to spending time with this couple on that set date. During the week just prior to that Sunday, I had to work my part-time job at a local flower shop.  That Friday, as I was working, I started to feel some symptoms that became more and more noticeable throughout the day.  My throat started to hurt.  I was feeling very tired and weak.  My muscles began to ache. By the end of my workday, I was feeling pretty bad.  All I wanted to do was go home to bed.  The next morning, I woke up to a mess of full blown cold & flu symptoms:  stuffy head, achy muscles, headache, zero energy.  I didn’t feel like doing ANYTHING! But we were having dinner guests the next day, and I had much to prepare.  My concern was whether or not I should cancel our invitation due to these symptoms.  I certainly didn’t want to share my germs with anyone. I sure didn’t feel like preparing any meal or cleaning my home.  But at the same time, I knew that if I canceled, it would be some time before we had another opportunity to have these same guests for dinner.   All I felt like doing at that point was just laying on the sofa in my living room.  It was Saturday morning, and my youngest daughter, Kayla, was up and watching cartoons on TV.  So I laid there and watched episodes of Sponge Bob with her.  While I was laying there in my pajamas and robe, healing scriptures that I had been studying and speaking over the last year or so were going through my mind.  I wasn’t thinking about healing – I really hadn’t been thinking about anything – I was just watching Sponge Bob with Kayla.  But these scriptures kept coming to my mind. “Surely He bore our sicknesses and carried our pains, yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten of God and afflicted.  But He was wounded for our transgressions,  He was bruised for our iniquities.  The chastisement of our peace was upon Him and by His stripes, we are healed.(Isa. 53:4-5)”  “And He healed all that were sick that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet Isaiah saying, “Himself took our infirmities and bare our sicknesses. (Mat. 8:16-17)”  “Who his own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree, that we being dead to sin should live unto righteousness, by His stripes we were healed.  (1 Peter 2:24)””Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us, for it is written, Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree. (Gal. 3:13)”   My focus became these scriptures.  As I thought about them, I said to myself, “Hey, wait a minute.  Jesus bore ALL sicknesses on the cross – that includes this virus that I am battling.  I don’t want to cancel our plans with our friends from church due to sickness.  I don’t have to have this sickness.”  Normally, it would have to run it’s course over several days to a week or two.  “But, God, you said Jesus bore this for me, so I don’t have to have it.  Well, then, if I am healed, I would be getting up off of this sofa and going about my day to make preparations for our dinner guests.”   Now, at this time, I did not “feel” like doing anything.  I felt too sick to even move;  however,  I knew if I would remain laying there, the virus would just run it’s course as usual and I would have to heal over a period several days or weeks.  So I made the decision at that moment to believe God at His Word.  I commanded that sickness to leave my body in the Name of Jesus.  I said, “Thank you, God, that I AM healed.”  I got up off of that sofa;  I tore off my robe;  and I headed for a shower so I could start my day.  I acted what I was believing.    As I stood there in the shower bathing, it suddenly occurred to me that there was no more achiness in my muscles, my headache was gone, and there was no more stuffiness in my head.  I realized that all those symptoms that I had just moments earlier had disappeared instantly.  I had renewed strength.  I was able to do all the work that was necessary to prepare for our guests the next day.  It took most of my day to complete the tasks, but I was not tired one bit throughout the rest of the day.  And we were able to have our guests for dinner as planned on Sunday.   What God showed me during this healing process, was that His Word is true, but it takes our cooperation; it takes us believing and acting on God’s Word in order to see the physical manifestation of His Word in our bodies.  I am so thankful to God for teaching me these truths.  I have been able to apply these truths to my life with supernatural results again and again.  God’s Word works!  All praise to Him!  Rhonda Butz


Healing Testimony By: Rita Erunse
  Healed of Rheumatoid Arthritis

In December 2009, I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis.  At first I was relieved to know what the problem was, because I was having excruciating pain for months without relief in sight.  Then I got angry at the devil remembering that: 1 John 3:8 “The reason the Son of God appeared (manifested) was to destroy the devil’s work”.  2 Timothy 2:26 “and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.” I started battling with it in prayer and stood on many promises from the Word, especially Isaiah 49:25-26 (New King James Version): But thus says the LORD: “Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, And the prey of the terrible be delivered; For I will contend with him who contends with you, And I will save your children. I will feed those who oppress you with their own flesh, And they shall be drunk with their own blood as with sweet wine. All flesh shall know That I, the LORD, am your Savior, And your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.” I soon realized this was a tenacious, vicious spirit attacking my body and needed vigorous strategic bombarding of God’s Word and some Holy Spirit tenacity.  I kept fighting and declaring what God’s Word said over me:  Isaiah 53 was a favorite and also Psalm 18:  “The strangers shall run out of their hiding places.” I soon discovered, however, that it will leave and wait for an opportune time to attack again, so it became a cycle…  I soon learned that this was a demonic arrow from hell through witchcraft – so I dealt with it as such, and broke its power through standing, declaring and commanding the evil spirit to return to its sender, and doing things I could not do because of pain on purpose. The result:  Healing and Restoration – which has become a lifestyle for me.  It has been more than a year now, and when symptoms try to come back, I remind the devil that I AM ALREADY HEALED.  Too late!! PRAISE GOD! Rita Erunse

Healing Testimony By:  Diane Horan
Healed of Lupus

 My healing began back in April of 1999. I had been diagnosed with Lupus, an autoimmune deficiency disease that, in my case, affected my joints. The Lupus left me in constant pain all over my body and on occasion I would have swollen, fluid-filled joints that would need to be drained. There were days that I could hardly walk and when I would relax, my hands would curl up like they were beginning to atrophy. My Rheumatologist told me there was no cure and that I would most likely be raising my children from a wheel chair. His advice to me was to stop fighting the disease and accept it. At that time I was 37 years young and my children were 3, 7 and 9. We moved to Pennsylvania in August of ’98 to be closer to our family since we did not know what the future held. That is where I met Rhonda who began to teach me about healing. She said that God wanted me well, and that the Lupus was not from God. My response was the typical “church” response from 2 Corinthians 12:7 referring to Paul’s thorn in the flesh. I informed her that God said “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” I told Rhonda that God wanted me to have Lupus in order to teach me His strength. She began to teach me the truth of God’s Word, gently showing me where I was confused. She began giving me books and tapes on healing. I devoured everything in my quest to discover the truth and maybe even get healed.   I would go for prayer, again and again, and not feel anything -- no hot flashes, no tingling sensations, nothing -- no healing was received either. I went home feeling defeated every time. I was under the impression that I would receive my healing immediately. It wasn’t until I studied “Spirit, Soul, Body” that I understood that the spiritual realm happens immediately, but sometimes the physical realm is slower in its response. I decided to go for prayer one last time. This time, as usual, there was no “special feeling,” but the difference was that this time I decided I was healed in the Spiritual realm because God said I was. I believed the healing would eventually be manifested in the physical realm. I set my mind on that truth and decided to not go for prayer again. There was no need to since I already received my healing. I believed it was just a matter of time before I would begin to see and feel the manifestation in the physical realm.   I stopped all of my medications, to the chagrin of my Rheumatologist, and began telling family and friends that I was already healed of Lupus. My symptoms got worse! No matter what happened I was not going to lose faith in my healing. For six weeks I was horrible, BUT THEN, my healing began to slowly manifest. My symptoms started to leave, one by one. The swelling left, the pain left, and the only thing hanging on was a pain in my left shoulder. That took about a year before it was completely gone. For about four years after my healing, the shoulder pain would return at times. At first I would feel panic, as though the Lupus was coming back and I was not fully healed. But as the years went by, I realized it was the enemy trying to rob me of that miraculous healing that Jesus provided for me when he said “believe and be saved.” Saved is the Greek word Sozo, which means, amongst other things,” healed” and “made whole.” Because of Jesus, I am completely “made whole.”  It is now 2011, and 12 years since I have been healed.  God wants you well too!  Don't be influenced by others' theology.  I encourage you to study the Scriptures for yourself.  Discover God's truth and receive YOUR healing in Jesus' Name! It is now 2011, and 12 years since I have been healed. God wants you well too! Don’t be influenced by others’ theology. I encourage you to study the Scriptures for yourself. Discover God’s truth, and receive your healing, in Jesus’ Name!  Diane Horan

Healing Testimony By: Cathy Heisler
 Healed of Acute Back Pain 

When listening to healing messages, I’ve heard many preachers say that if we are tolerant of something, we will stay that way. How true! Believing for one’s healing takes work on our part. It takes a fight to stand up against the enemy and say “enough is enough, I’m not settling! Not anymore!” In the Bible, God says to “try Him” to see if His Word is true. It is! One day I decided to stand up and fight and it worked! For the majority of my life I’ve been plagued with back problems. I’ve gone to a chiropractor for many years and have been treated with “adjustments” and therapy. I’ve been told that I have a spinal curvature and arthritis in certain parts of my spine. Through the teachings on healing and “spirit, soul and body”, I have learned that God never intended for me to have those things, that Jesus suffered and died for those chronic conditions and everything else that could possibly come down the pike to afflict us. But we need to stand up and disagree with those diagnoses and know that in the spirit we are already healed. All we need to do is renew the mind (the soul) and confess with your mouth and believe, and healing will come through to your body. Sometimes it takes but an instant, and sometimes it takes a long time. But either way, if you stay persistent, it will come.   One Sunday morning I got out of bed feeling very chipper and energetic (which is not the usual “me”), and as I was walking to the bathroom, I immediately felt a sharp nerve pain in my lower spine that hurled me to the floor. My back was locked up and I couldn’t move. As I tried to get myself up and over to the bed, I winced in pain, shuffling my feet and moving ever so slowly, breathing heavily as I tried to get myself onto the bed. I laid there still, afraid to move, afraid to breathe. Each breath and movement sent another spasm into my body. I told my husband what happened and he immediately began to pray over me. I started to quote the usual Scriptures, but nothing happened. I tried to get up again, and again I was almost paralyzed with pain.  As I was ready to give up and not get ready to go to church and “accept” my fate, I heard a small voice inside of me that said “you know what you have to do.” I said to myself “yes, I am not putting up with this because I am healed in Jesus’ name!!!” I started to speak out loud to the enemy claiming victory in Jesus’ name, quoting every healing Scripture that I knew over and over and over again. I told the enemy that he was not going to win, and that I was going to get up and get ready to go to church and that this would be to God’s glory. As the minutes passed and I laid there, I realized that I had to put my faith into action. I started to slowly move my leg toward the edge of the bed and try to lower it to the floor. It hurt. But I kept on quoting Scripture and kept on trying to stand up. I got up and continued quoting the healing Scriptures as I proceeded to get ready for church. The pain was subsiding, little by little.  By the time I got to church and got out of the car I was running into the building in my high heels. All I could think of was how I was healed and I was going to tell everyone from the pulpit how God’s Word is true! All we have to do is speak it, act on it and believe! If it worked for me, it can work for you. Jesus’ blood was shed for everyone. Don’t give more power to the enemy than to God. Try Him at His Word! Just believe! Cathy Heisler

Healed of Low Back Pain

I've suffered from low back pain my whole life.  When it strikes, I cannot stand up from the excruciating pain and I have to try to get to a place where I can lay down.  The pain makes me fall to my knees.  The only way to get relief is to go to a chropracter and first have therapy done to relieve the nerve and muyscles so the doctor can begin the treatment process through the chiropractic adjustment.  We had numerous teachings in our churchon how to receive healing as well as testimonies by individuals who received their healing.  I decided I was going to trust God and go for it.  I remember crawling to the bedside to ask my wife for help and she immediately began to pray for me.  I remembered what Rhonda said in church one Sunday when she was giving a testimony about how she was healed from flu symptoms and a fever.  She had said “you have what it takes.”  I knew what I had to do to get my healing.  I also knew that I needed to “praise my way” in my healing journey with faith mixed in.  I crawled across the floor into our home office and got myself up on the chair and turned on praise and worship music.   Because I lead the music ministry in church I have seen the power of the Lord work through music.  After two songs or so I began to attempt to raise my hands and praise God.  It hurt so much but I kept trying, and eventually I had my arms straight up.  Then as I continued to praise God and faith believing that I would get my healing, I eventually was able to stand up.  Within 15 minuets I walked over to the bedroom where my wife was, and with the music turned up loud still praising God, I bent over and touched my feet. My wife jumped up and began to say "PRAISE THE LORD.”   I was so elated and amazed at my miraculous healing.    Barry Heisler
