“God’s miraculous healing power has been a big part of my life.  At the age of two years old I was bitten by a sweat bee. The outcome of that bite was a very sick baby that ended up in Riley Hospital.  I was diagnosed at that point with Nephrotic Syndrome/Nephrosis.  This disease is simply this:  the kidneys spill protein and keep bacteria, causing excessive swelling and loss of kidney function.  At that time, (in the early 60’s)  no one that had been diagnosed with Nephrosis lived passed their early teen years.  But, fortunately for me they had recently discovered that the steroid Prednisone would not heal but would throw the disease into remission.  So that began my life of doctor visits and sickness.  Swelling and high doses of Prednisone for long periods of time and then remission and weaning off the Prednisone.  At one point we tried an experimental drug that could have caused me to be unable to have children.  Praise God that was not the outcome of that drug!  The Prednisone though unpleasant with it’s side affects kept me through my teen years!
My husband and I felt God call us to AIM Missionaries to Hong Kong.  During that preparation time of going over seas I became very sick again and also was pregnant with our second child Titus.  The doctors first suggested that we abort the baby because of the high risk it was to me.  After they realized that was not going to be our choice they begged us to stay in the States until the baby was born.  My husband and I were determined to go to Hong Kong.  We believed God had called us to this ministry, and we believed that God would go with us and protect us.  AND He did just that!  While we were in Hong Kong I delivered Titus, a healthy baby boy and was healed of Nephrosis at the same time!  I have not had one symptom of this disease for over 27 years!  To God be the glory!  Was it faith that brought my healing?  Was it obedience to God’s call?  Maybe it is both!”
