Testimony Book 4


TO THE GLORY
OF GOD'S
HEALING POWER

Dearly Beloved of God
Jesus said,
"The one who listens to you listens to Me, and the one who rejects you rejects Me; and he who rejects Me Rejects the One who sent Me."

I have been inspired by the Holy Spirit to place in this fourth book, testimonies sent to me, as many people have acknowledged being healed, receiving miracles, and being delivered by God the Father, in the Name of Jesus, and by the Power of the Holy Spirit. I pray that the Holy Spirit will encourage and edify your spirit, and encourage your faith to receive all of the promises of God, given unto all who believe in His Name, for His Name, Jesus, is above every other name.
Jesus said,
"O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her!

How often I wanted to gather your children together, the way a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were unwilling.

Behold, your house is being left to you desolate! For I say to you, from now on you shall not see Me until you say,
'Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord.' "
Matthew 23:37-39

"The Lord's lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, For His compassions never fail, They are new every morning: Great Is Thy Faithfulness."
Lamentations 3:22,23 (NASB)


At the birth of my second child, Joseph Carl Mitchell, I had a miraculous birth. I was 4 cm dilated in the labour ward of the Queen Victoria hospital and doing great. The doctors became very agitated and wanted me to go on a drip, telling me it would be hours.

I don't remember why, but they wanted me to go on a drip. I wasn't really happy about it, but they told me that I had hours to go before the baby would be born. The pain became intolerable with the drip, so I asked for pethidine. They gave it to me because they thought the baby wasn't going to be born for a long time.

Well, the events happened so quickly. I was a bit spun out because of the pethidine and gas.

Pastor Lorraine came in. I remember them saying that I'd be hours yet, but my husband Barry, and Pastor Lorraine said, 'No.' I knew that, as I was being prayed for, the baby in my womb jumped in response to the prayer. His little legs were pushing up under my rib cage. He was being born. The Lord was beating upon my heart, and he responded in that instant. He was there ready to be born.

A nurse said that she had better check up. Well, then it just started. Joseph was ready, but they weren't. The staff were in panic, but the Lord was there for me, and Joseph Carl Mitchell was dedicated in that hospital room, where I gave birth.

The Lord's loving kindness fails not; they are new every morning.
Thank you, Jesus.

"For the wages of sin is death, But the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Romans 6:23 (NASB)


My daughter Rachel is now a happy, loving mother. However if Christ Jesus hadn't touched her and healed her, the circumstances might now have been quite different.

On her way to school, Rachel had fallen on her way to the bus. The teacher noticed that she looked very ill. They 'phoned me at a Church service to come and pick her up.

By the time I arrived, Rachel couldn't move her right arm and leg, and couldn't speak. I felt I should take her to the Church, and we all gathered around her and prayed. By that time, Rachel was unconscious.

I then took her to the Children's hospital, where the doctors ordered x-rays, an ECG and several other tests. Rachel kept on having turns, and the tests revealed that she'd had a stroke, and there was a haemorrhage of the brain, with a lot of swelling around the haemorrhage.

Pastor Lorraine Isbister was dining in Adelaide that night and felt the Lord would have her pray, as He would heal Rachel. We went to the hospital the next morning and prayed. The doctors were amazed when they took the next tests, for they revealed no sign of the haemorrhage, and no abnormalities or defects due to the stroke.

Within 5 days, Rachel was home with us and we have never stopped praising God for healing her in such a wondrous way.

268. THE WAGES OF SIN

THE WAGES OF SIN IS ETERNAL DEATH.
BUT THE FREE GIFT OF GOD, IS LIFE
GIVEN TO ALL WHO BELIEVE THAT CHRIST
DIED TO SET US FREE.

FOR HIS BLOOD, THAT WAS SHED ON CALVARY,
SEPARATED ME, IF I BELIEVE,
FROM THE WAGES OF ETERNAL
SIN AND DEATH
AND GIVEN ME ETERNAL LIFE.

"A new commandment I give to you, That you love one another, Even as I have loved you, That you also love one another.
By this all men will know that you are My disciples, If you have love for one another."
John 13:34,35 (NASB)


For weeks, I had so much difficulty in swallowing. My throat always seemed to be swollen. I was not well and my body and head were in constant pain.

I went to the "Hosanna" Healing Service and Pastor Lorraine had a Word of Knowledge of someone who had a thickening in the throat, because a small growth had formed there. Pastor Lorraine took authority, in the Name of Jesus, over the growth and immediately something slid down the inside of my throat, and the pressure from my brain was lifted. My spirit within me leapt with, 'Thank you, Jesus! Praise you, Jesus! The pressure has left my brain! I've been healed!'

I rested a short while and then started to feel sick, so I left the Church with all the others and went home. As soon as I got home, I was sick and vomited up all this black stuff, like poison.

Praise God! I was healed completely. I felt like a brand new person - such love Jesus has for us. Even when we don't know what's wrong or what's happening, Jesus does, and His love for us is so great. He never leaves us or forsakes us. He holds us in the palm of His hand. He will never put us to shame. Such is His love.

Jesus took care of me until I was home, to deliver me from the poison of the growth, such is His love. I didn't need to look to a doctor, or a health clinic, a headache tablet, or a new diet. Jesus healed me completely, when I didn't even know what was wrong.

Thank you, Jesus, for your love.

LOVE THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR HEARTS

"And His Name will be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace."
Isaiah 9:6b (NASB)


For a few months I had been suffering from a mild pain in my lower stomach area, and I thought perhaps I had developed a cyst in my womb. After some discomfort, I decided to go to a Healing service at "Hosanna" Christian Centre and have it prayed for. However, one thing led to another and I put this matter aside, to deal with other events occurring in my life at the time.

But, praise the Lord, for He cares about every little detail in my life and, a few months later, a Word of Knowledge was spoken through Pastor Lorraine Isbister. The Lord said that I had ulcerations in my ovaries and that He wanted to heal me of this condition, so I went out for prayer. I also had prayer later for an infection that had formed behind my ovaries.

I thank you Jesus, for healing me and for the precious gift of salvation.

Satan has tried so hard to prevent me from writing this testimony but, through your blood, I have overcome. I pray for those who do not know You, so that they may also receive the blessings I have. I love you; You are my ALL!

Revelation 22:17 (NASB)

I want to give thanks to my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, for -
"By His stripes, we were healed."

At the Healing service at "Hosanna" Parkside on 6 July 1995, a Word of Knowledge was given for painful shins, the cause being poor circulation. I responded - the artery was released and I was healed!

I praise God for the healing to my body that I have received over the past 9 years, through His faithful and submitted servant, Pastor Lorraine Isbister. Through a Word of Knowledge, I have had a nodule removed from my voice box, polyps healed in my uterus, an artery to my heart healed, my eyes healed, and the roots to a growth on my neck have been cut.

I praise and give thanks from my heart to my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, my Healer and Deliverer.

I just want to give all Praise and Glory to Jesus for healing me, through the prayer of His vessel, Pastor Lorraine Isbister.

I was healed of two cysts on my ovaries, at a Sunday night service in Gawler late in February 1995. Thank you Jesus for my healing. I would also like to thank Jesus for another healing that took place at a Healing service on Thursday, 4 April 1995, at "Hosanna" Christian Centre at Parkside. I went up for prayer for a weak bladder and, praise God, I was healed!

I just want to thank Pastor Lorraine for being such a mighty vessel for the Lord Jesus Christ, and wish to give Praise and Glory to my Father God, Sweet Jesus and Precious Holy Spirit for my healings. Amen!

About 10 days ago, I went to my doctor, as I had fluid in my left ear. He referred me to an ear, nose and throat specialist to have the ear drained.

Last Sunday night, I went forward for prayer at "Hosanna". Pastor Lorraine Isbister prayed and instantly the pain and pressure ceased, and I have had no further trouble and I will not have to keep the specialist's appointment.

I had my stomach stapled 6 weeks ago. Since then, I hadn't been able to keep food down. If I did eat, I would vomit it up again.

On 17 August, 1995, Pastor Lorraine prayed for me, and I immediately had lunch and kept down a full meal. It's a miracle, because I didn't even feel sick.

I received instruction from school that my daughter, Nadia, had impaired sight in the left eye. She was prayed for in the evening Gospel Miracle Service at "Hosanna" and was completely healed.

Glory to God!

"Some trust in chariots, and some in horses;
But we will remember the Name of the Lord, our God."
Psalm 20:7 (NKJV)


I am writing this testimony to give full glory unto Jesus Christ for the healing I have received from Him. I was working at the time as a welder and, during the course of my work, I injured my back from a repetitive strain. Because it was a work related injury, I was told to see a doctor to go onto WorkCover.

The doctor then organised for me to see a physiotherapist, who treated me 4 times and gave me exercises to do every hour. Over a period of about 2 weeks of having treatments and doing the exercises, I was steadily getting worse. I found that, as I was doing the exercises, my back was feeling OK but, as soon as I stopped, my back would start to pain and only get worse, until it was just about unbearable.

The next Sunday I went forward for prayer and, praise the Lord, I was healed! The pain left and I was able to start work again without any trouble. I needed no more treatment, nor did I have to do any of the exercises again.

I bless God for this miracle of healing that He blessed me with, right from the Throne Room of God.

"And they sang a new song, saying, 'You are worthy to take the scroll, And to open its seals; For You were slain, And have redeemed us to God by Your blood Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation."
Revelation 5:9 (NKJV)


I thank my God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit for setting me free and healing me. By His loving grace, through His Holy Spirit ministering through Pastor Lorraine, He healed my back, which had caused me constant pain since I was 20 years old. What a joy! No more pain, or fear of pain in my back! Thank you, Lord.

Since childhood, I'd been emotionally unstable, filled with rejection and confusion of who I was. One day, at "The Vine Christian Centre" at Clare, as Pastor Lorraine and Pastor David came, ministering in the power of the Holy Spirit, I was really moved as we sang the chorus, "I Am Blameless Before You, Lord."

As I went forward for prayer, the Lord Jesus delivered me of another personality, which had come on me during an ordeal of rape in childhood.

Praise the Lord! He set me free! How wonderful it is to be set free by a Living God Who loves us.

Luke 10:19 (NASB)


I had a severe attack, which was like my sister and mother had described as a gall bladder attack (they both had their gall bladders removed last year). I was writhing around on the bed and called the girls in my home to come and pray for me.

One layed hands on my back, and they all prayed in tongues, as another 'phoned for Pastor Lorraine. She couldn't be found right away but, as each home that was 'phoned started to pray, I felt a little better.

When we reached Pastor Lorraine, she said it wasn't a gall stone, but a spiritual attack, which she bound up and broke, and I was INSTANTLY healed!

So we all went back into the lounge to be with the others at supper.

"Heaven and earth will pass away, But My Words shall not pass away."
Matthew 24:35 (NASB)


My daughter, Carol Hanna, had slipped and fallen, fracturing her spine (the 8th vertebrae down and compressing onto the 7th vertebrae). Osteoporosis at the crack level had been diagnosed and, as a young woman in her 30's, with a 2 1/2 year old and a baby of 5 months, this was not good news. She had been told that she would not be allowed to lift her baby for 8 weeks.

She was surrounded by believing prayer. Our Church, "Hosanna" prayed for her, and her own Church prayed for her. Then Carol agreed to have Pastor Lorraine Isbister come to the home and pray for her.

It was a most beautiful time in the Lord, as Pastor Lorraine ministered to Carol. We were stunned to see that Carol had one leg about 1 1/2" longer than the other, so prayer began there.

Her legs were made equal in length, by the power of Jesus Christ, right there and then! As the Lord moved her, Pastor Lorraine prayed into various areas of the back for completed healing. A short time after that, Carol was able to lift her baby.

She is now much healthier than prior to the break, and a recent scan has shown no evidence of a fracture!

The power and strength of Jesus Christ is amazing - to see this young mother now - compared to her lying flat out on a bed - is totally amazing!

All praise, glory and honour unto Jesus Christ, King of Kings, Lord of Lords!

Our precious Jesus has blessed my family and me with so many healings, that I could fill a whole book. Praise the Lord! He is Wonderful!

I have loved the Lord since I was a child, but I didn't have the revelation of Jesus' healing power until 1986. My first miraculous healing was at the charismatic convention at Wayville, when Pastor Paul Y Cho from Korea prayed. As I sat in my seat in a congregation of about 10,000 people, I felt a heat flash through my back which had been injured about 30 years previously.

I had been in almost constant pain since 1967, and I couldn't stand up straight and actually had a hollow where my right hip bone should have been. The pain was so intense at times that I couldn't move, and spent weeks in bed. The doctors had said they couldn't help me. But, Praise God! Jesus healed me!

I returned to the chiropractor who kept me mobile and she confirmed the healing, acknowledging that no human being could have healed my back, and that every tissue was different from anything she had seen there before. She advised me to seek further prayer for other problems, and the Lord led me to "Hosanna" Christian Centre, where He continued to bless me.

I was very thin, weighing only 45 kg. I had lived on fresh fruit and vegetables for 18 months, because of severe allergic reactions, which affected my vision, speech and mind. The only cooked food I could eat was rice and potatoes. I was apparently suffering from mercury poisoning from the amalgam fillings in my teeth.

Pastor Lorraine prayed for a barrier to come between the fillings and my body and, praise Jesus, again He healed me instantly!

I had been going to "Hosanna" Christian Centre for several months when Satan tried to kill me. One night at Fullarton, it was as if there was a hailstorm in my head, and I later learned that Pastor Lorraine Isbister prayed until I was delivered from a spirit of death. Satan was defeated by the power of Jesus! Satan tried again later that night to attack me, but I just called on Jesus and, as I said His Name, Satan had to retreat, and Jesus had the victory!

It was quite a traumatic experience, but I knew from that night, that Satan is defeated and Jesus is victorious, and it is such a strength to see personally, the wonderful power and love of Jesus, and to know that I need never have fear while I trust the Lord. Even after my back was healed, the Holy Spirit gave Pastor Lorraine the Word of Knowledge, and I was delivered from the familiar spirit and have had no back problems since.

It is wonderful to be able to do and lift things which had for years been impossible. Praise God! On another occasion, the Lord graciously delivered me from a witchcraft spirit, which had affected members of my mother's family for more than 150 years. There was a pressure like a vice affecting the left side of my face, which instantly left me.

I praise God yet again!

"And suddenly, a woman who had a flow of blood For twelve years, came from behind Him And touched the hem of His garment.
For she said to herself,
'If only I may touch His garment, I shall be made well.' "
Matthew 9:20,21 (NKJV)


I give honour, praise and glory unto the Lord Jesus Christ, who has healed and set me free! I had suffered so much with my menstrual cycle from the age of 11 years.

I had become a born again Christian in January 1979, but didn't really comprehend the fullness of the finished work of the Cross,
"By His stripes, we were healed,"
and also that,
"The curse has been broken."

Nobody taught that.

Right on my 40th birthday, my cycle went absolutely haywire; my hormones appeared to be completely out of balance. I felt like a schizophrenic, and I suffered much at the hands of doctors. My iron dropped, and I suffered extreme fatigue, plus many other ailments at that time.

I became very familiar with, "the woman with the issue of blood," in the Scriptures. I kept seeking the Lord. Those who seek Him, with all their heart, shall find Him.

In July 1991, the Lord gave me a wonderful revelation of the sin of man and the deception of Satan, in holding man to his lies, and also that we had been freed from the curse by the precious blood of Jesus -

"In him also you were circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, By putting off the body of flesh in the circumcision of Christ;
and you were buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with Him through faith In the working of God, Who raised Him from the dead.
And you who were dead in trespasses And the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with Him, Having forgiven us all our trespasses, Having cancelled the bond which stood against us With its legal demands;
This He set aside, nailing it to the cross. He disarmed the principalities and powers And made a public example of them; Triumphing over them in Him."
Colossians 2:11-15


So I began to pray accordingly, and really believe what God's Word had told me.

I started going to "Hosanna" Christian Centre in November 1991 where, for the first time, I heard the truth of the Gospel being preached, and saw signs and wonders following the preaching of the Word. How exciting it was to be in the midst of God's truth, and seeing people being set free, delivered and healed, as it was in the Book of Acts.

The blood of Jesus Christ was not being trampled on here at "Hosanna". It was alive! Faith began to rise.

One night, when Pastor Lorraine Isbister was preaching the Gospel of Truth, I went forward for prayer for my menstrual cycle. I'd had enough. I felt that it was time to finish with them. As Pastor Lorraine asked me what I wanted and I shared my desire with her, she prayed and my cycle stopped. That was early 1992.

When the Lord heals, He heals!

Debbie Tagliofero had been suffering with what the doctors had claimed was a chemical imbalance in her brain. I had invited her to a Healing Meeting but, the day before, she was admitted to the psychiatric ward at the Queen Elizabeth hospital.

Many prayers were offered up to God on her behalf, in the Body of "Hosanna" and other Churches. The doctors were giving her shock treatment for approximately 3 or 4 weeks when, at Communion time in "Hosanna" a tissue was prayed over in faith for her healing.

Her husband, Tony, received the tissue with great faith, and put it under her pillow. He quoted to her, the Scripture of the friends lowering the man through the roof to get to Jesus for healing.

"And Jesus seeing their faith said to the paralytic, 'My son, your sins are forgiven.' "
Mark 2:5


In the following week, the doctors released her and she was re-united with her husband and daughter.

"He who believes in Me, As the Scripture has said, Out of his heart will flow rivers of Living Water."
John 7:38 (NKJV)


Before being born again, I was watching my wife being baptised in water. As I watched, there was a Word of Knowledge given, that someone was worried, because they had just been told that they had severe kidney and liver problems. The Pastor said that the person would know it was him because, as a little boy, he had heard the story of Meschach, Shadrach and Abednego in the fiery furnace, and did not believe it, but the Lord was healing him.

I was that person and the Lord healed me.

Later that night, He baptised me in the Holy Spirit, while I was smoking a cigarette and drinking a glass of wine at home.
We have a great God! Praise the Lord!

Within days, our Lord healed me of drinking and excessively watching television. Twelve months later, our Lord healed me of cigarette addiction. The Pastor who was to pray for me suggested I go on a 3 day fast. I agreed but, in my heart, I knew I could not do it and God knew that too for, just as I was to start the fast, I became very ill. The doctor told me I was to only drink water, and not eat for 3 days. After 3 days I was prayed for, healed of nicotine addiction, a virus went, and I regained my appetite.

For many months before we moved to our new home, I had been ill. The moment I stepped into our home, I was miraculously healed by our Lord. Our Lord supplied us with the money to go to Thailand to adopt our second daughter, Tharinee, and also for another car when we needed a second one. Our main car broke down, as well as our washing machine, and our bills were overdue. We needed $2,000! Our God supplied!

The Lord restored my eyesight to 20 / 20 vision, so that I would not need glasses. He also healed a very bad toothache. I haven't had a toothache since. He has also healed me spiritually, by allowing persecution to come upon me, so that He could extract me from the Church where I was. He then placed me in "Hosanna", where I have been released from many things which had hindered my growth in Jesus Christ.

THE HOLY SPIRIT IS UPON ME.

"O Lord God of Hosts, Who is mighty like You, O Lord? Your faithfulness also surrounds You."
Psalm 89:8 (NKJV)


I am just so happy and so filled with thanks of the Lord, I just have to thank you as well.

I have just spoken to my husband, Bill, on the 'phone in Jakarta, and I asked about his chest pain, and he said, 'Yes, it has all gone!' I had been too hesitant to ring you at home, because I didn't want to intrude on your personal time, but when a friend, Anna Wuttke, rang me and I asked her to pray for Bill also, she made me ring your home.

I explained to Anna that Bill had a wonderful, amazing testimony of the Lord's healing. He'd been having at least 15 nose bleeds per day over such a prolonged time, that the extensive blood loss was causing him great fatigue. This was hindering his work, as he travelled and attended meetings and addressed many delegations from companies or governments. His nose would start haemorrhaging and would not stop. I had attended a "Hosanna" Healing meeting at Parkside on Thursday 16 November 1995, and asked for prayer for Bill who was then in Jakarta.

His nose bleeds stopped immediately, and he has not had another since that time.

The chest pain that Bill had been experiencing while in Jakarta, was actual heart pain radiating up into the left shoulder, neck and down into the left arm, causing numbness to the arm and hand. This had left him just after 3 pm, which probably would have been about 3:30 pm on Saturday afternoon, just the time that you prayed for him.

Bill had asked me to find out where you would be preaching on the Sunday, and go to the service and ask you to intercede for him. He didn't know that I was going to ring your home and ask you to pray over the 'phone. In fact, I did not even expect you to pray for him there and then, like you did. I merely wanted to find out where you would be on Sunday, because I intended to be 'wherever' that was going to be, no matter what, because of the seriousness and severity of the problem.

I have spent many years specialising, working and studying extensively in the field of cardiac / coronary medicine and surgery, having been in charge of coronary and cardiac care intensive units and know the real thing, absolutely and precisely. I have also been involved in 'phone diagnosis and emergency counselling of cardiac and chest pain patients, and I know exactly when to be concerned, and when not to be concerned! All I can say is, when I got off that 'phone from Bill, in Jakarta, after he told me his symptoms in a worried tone, I just prayed my heart out.

I rung you at precisely 6:30 pm, as Pastor Colin had said. When you told me to put my hand on my heart and to intercede for Bill, with me being made one with Bill, by the union of the Holy Spirit at our Christian marriage 20 years ago, something strange came over me. I had a knowing upon all knowings that the Lord was going to absolutely heal Bill, instantly and precisely. As you spoke the diagnosis of the aorta and aortic valve, I saw this clear picture of the aorta and aortic valve. I saw it strengthen up and close, just as it should; nice and strong, with a sharp, hard, opening and closing functioning, just like that! All done! When you said, 'We will believe in faith,' it was too late! It was done! All over and done with! Completely healed, beyond a shadow of a doubt!

That was at 6:30 pm, which was about 3:30 pm in Jakarta. At that particular time, Bill went to the hotel gym to do some exercises, because he felt so good. He got on an exercise bike and worked at a phenomenal pace, pedalling and racing dramatically hard, just as we do in coronary testing laboratories, to deliberately put the heart under stress. Bill had no idea that he had just been prayed for and that healing had taken place. Actually he should never have even gone into any gym and could have put his heart under stress, arrested or infarcted, that is, virtually dropped dead instantly.

Instead he performed on the cycle to an extent that even surprised him, 'and felt absolutely fantastic, not a skerrick of anything, not the faintest twinge of any pain, let alone cardiac ischaemia.' Maybe the Lord encouraged him to go into that gym, as a witness of the preciseness and definiteness of the healing He delivered to Bill, through prayer, back here in Adelaide. Maybe He was showing us that, even though we think our world is so large, whether Bill travels to Indonesia or England or wherever, and we think he is so far away, to God, this is merely nothing at all. Time is nothing; distance is nothing. He is everywhere at all times. What is 'great' to us is 'nothing ' to Him. He holds all of planet earth in the palm of His hand. Maybe God is saying, 'Don't let anything become an obstacle in receiving from Me, because nothing really is. Obstacles are only like excuses that you create, and rob yourselves of everything I have for you.'

I am walking around with a song bubbling up out of me, 'What a Mighty God we Serve' (I am going to pray that we will sing it next Sunday at Church, because He absolutely deserves our praise). All my love and thanks, and a million thanks from Bill, as we truly praise and thank God for bringing you into our life!

"I have been crucified with Christ; And it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me, And the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, Who loved me, And delivered Himself up for me."
Galatians 2:20 (NASB)


For 13 years, I suffered from alcoholism. It had started insidiously with just one regular drink at 6 pm, and built up to the point where I was drunk most nights of the week. In desperation, I sought man's help.

I went through psychotherapy, hypnosis, attendance at AA, and even tried medications - pills that I took so that, if I drank alcohol, I would become violently ill. I stopped taking the tablets because they interfered with my drinking. Friendships were being eroded, I lost my self-respect and, worst of all, I realised I was losing my children's respect, as I became an embarrassment to them. I realised after New Year's Eve 1994, that my life was in tatters and that I was facing spiritual and physical death.

I knew, in my heart, that all that could save me now was a higher power, God! My dear friend, Colleen, took me to a Healing Service at "Hosanna", where I heard Pastor Lorraine preach on the love of God and His Son, Jesus Christ.

I gave my life to Jesus Christ on 5 January 1995, and the Holy Spirit, through Pastor Lorraine, delivered me of alcoholism, and healed me from this awful disease.

Since that day, my life has truly begun. I found a peace and joy unlike any I had ever known. Alcohol has no power over me now. My life is ruled now, not by the things of the flesh, but by the power of Almighty God and my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

One of the many blessings I have received, since my salvation, has been the healing of my relationships with all my four children. Before my salvation, I was nothing and doomed to die. Now I am still nothing, apart from Christ, Who dwells in me, but now I live with a fullness of joy, peace and liberty that the world could never give me.

Praise God! All glory be to God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, and the power of the Holy Spirit! Amen!
