I praise and worship
the Lord for His
blessings and for healing
me in March, 1972. I was
not a Christian at the
time and worked at a paint shop. I had taken medicine
for a long time because of bad colds. As I drank wine
and took the medicine, the disease grew worse and
worse. Finally I lost so much strength in my legs it was
difficult to walk straight.
I went to inquire and found my symptoms meant
diabetes. From then on I took medication for diabetes
regularly and ate only a little food each day. Nothing
seemed to relieve the pain in my body, and I was
depressed. While I was taking the medicine I drank a
lot of wine in order to keep my mouth from becoming
dry. This, of course, was an excuse and very poor
Even with the various Chinese medicines there was
no relief. I wandered here and there looking for help.
Finally I went to a fortuneteller and spent much money
for him to repeat the useless sayings over me. This add-
ed more worry and did nothing for my physical benefit.
I went to many famous places to listen to fortunetellers
and get medicine, but my condition worsened.
I always felt a terrible thirst, and intense pain would
accompany urination. I became so weak I could not
work any longer. Always after eating I would lie down
One evening I read a book entitled The Way to Look
for Happiness, and I knew that if I prayed to God my
burdens would be lifted. I talked to my wife about go-
ing to church and she agreed to go sometime if I
The next day my brother, who lives in the country,
visited my home. He had been a born-again believer in
Jesus for some time, but because of my hot temper and
evil character had said very little to me about Christ.
He only prayed for me. The first chance I had I went
with him to early service at the church. I did not know
how to pray, so I begged God to heal me. I felt the
power of God in the service, and the words of the
pastor helped build faith within me.
While talking with Deacon Lee, he asked me if it
would be possible for me to spend some days away
from home. I listened carefully to his words. He spoke
of spending time in fasting and prayer at the prayer
mountain. I followed his advice and went to the prayer
I registered and entered a small prayer cave. There I
began to remember the times I had persecuted
Christians who were witnessing to me about the love of
God. I was so ashamed I wept before God and confess-
ed my sins.
I asked my wife to return home as I wanted to remain to fast and pray. On the fourth day I began to feel
dizzy, and I prayed that God would change my life. On
the sixth day I noticed the color of my urine was
different, and when I examined it with litmus paper it
showed no trace of the disease. I was completely healed
by the power of God. Praise the Lord!
