2014 MaryBeth Wholters – had three major surgeries on October 11, 2013 and has had many problems since, with complications, infection, and blood clots. On November 19, a second surgery was performed in an attempt to repair these residual complications from the first surgery. Her general health continued to dwindle through into January 2014. On January 26th, during the morning service, special prayer was made, focusing on MaryBeth’s needs.

Since then, she has been steadily improving, her strength is returning, and she is much encouraged by the power and presence of the Lord Jesus!

The doctors were seeking to learn the extent of the damage and determine their further course of action. We are praising the Lord for a good report! The blockages were only 30 and 40% and no additional procedures or medications will be necessary. Sis. Betty was able to come home that day, has completely recovered, is feeling really good, and is thankful for how the Lord brought her through.

Baby John King – (Portsmouth, VA,) premature infant born with serious lung problems. Doctors felt he would not be able to come home until his actual due date (which was the end of August). “But prayer was made…” the Lord intervened and little John has improved in every way.

The cancer cloud was lifted as God intervened on young LeBrun’s behalf!

Mary Beth Wholters – In 2005, the Lord spoke through the ministry that all would be well in Mary’s body. Yet, after dealing with continual tests for cancer over a five-year period, Mary was scheduled for another exploratory surgery. “But prayer was made…” Her pastor (in Jacksonville, Florida,) came to pray before this surgery. In addition, a prayer cloth had been sent to her from New Life Apostolic (her home church). Mary tucked the prayer cloth into her hospital gown’s pocket as she was wheeled into surgery. A week later, at her post-surgery appointment, the oncology doctor said, “There is no cancer. The biopsies are negative. From now on you only need normal annual physical exams – so, you are discharged from my care.”

Grandma reports that his weight gain is now 3 pounds! His doctors are thrilled with his progress. Darius and his family are thankful to the Lord for answered prayer!

    The Lord has done so much for the Fischer family. I will never forget the night that New Life had an altar call and Ray was healed of Crohn’s through prayer that night at the altar. When we left Church he knew he had been touched. About 3 months later the doctors at U of M took him off all Crohns medication. They were all amazed at the mercy and power of Jesus. What an honor it is to be able to pray for each other!
