Amazonian Wednesdays 🌴
A Testimony from January 2022
Melissa’s precious daughter Luciana lay in the hospital bed, unmoving. She had lain there for three months, wasting away to skin and bone. The doctors had not been able to find any explainable cause for her condition. One of them came into the room. “I’m so sorry,” he said gently. “She is going to die. There is nothing we can do.”
Several months prior, Luciana had gotten into some very dark spiritual practices. Mysteriously, three of the classmates who were in with her on consulting a Ouija board, died suddenly. They were all young teenagers. Luciana herself fell terribly ill and went out of her mind. She began to babble incoherently, mumbling about her “friends” from 300 years ago. She stopped eating. Soon afterwards, she was hospitalized.
Now, all hope seemed gone completely. The doctors gave her skeletal body back to her mother to await her death at home. That day, a trusted neighbor came to the house. “Your daughter can be restored,” she urged. “You need to get her to church. I know of one where the sick get healed.” The neighbor gave her contact information for our church.
Almost immediately, Melissa managed to get Luciana to one of our corporate fasts. That very day, Melissa was baptized. We walked her through forgiveness of those that had wounded her and her family. We then ministered to Luciana. The power of God hit her. Jesus set her free from the spiritual oppression that had nearly snuffed out her life. Her sanity returned to her, and she began to converse normally. Soon, she was asking for food.
This was a few months ago. Luciana did not die. She lives, for the glory of Jesus! She is getting stronger and healthier every day. I am grateful to serve the God who still restores broken lives today!
