My mother has been attending the Hokkien service since 2011. She was baptised in 2012 and I saw her faith grew as she heard the Word of God preached by our Chinese Ministry pastors.
In July this year, my brother’s younger daughter, Mynn had a persistent fever and was admitted to the hospital. Mynn was only 23 months old at that time.
After investigations, the hospital discovered that she had urinary tract infection. She was also given antibiotics jabs intravenously and was very distraught. My mother and I partook of the Holy Communion and applied anointing oil on Mynn. We prayed for her in the hospital.
Her fever came down on the third day. The doctor said she was recovering well but to be sure, he scheduled a computerised tomography scan (CT scan) for her kidneys before she could be discharged. Mynn’s fever was gone soon after and she was lively and eating well. Her urine and blood tests were all cleared. We thought she would be discharged soon.
However, the CT scan results showed that she had an abscess the size of a one–cent coin in one of her kidneys. The doctor recommended that she continue her antibiotics intravenously. The doctors were baffled that Mynn appeared well, and her blood and urine tests were clear in spite of the abscess.
She went through another week of intravenous antibiotics which was very painful for her because the doctors had to find new intravenous spots every few days. My mother, my sister–in–law and I cried along with Mynn whenever the procedure was going on.
After a week and a half in hospital, Mynn went for a second CT scan. This time round, the abscess had grown to the size of a five–cent coin!
Our hearts dropped upon hearing the news. My mother was very sad and she approached a church leader after the Hokkien service on Sunday to pray for Mynn with her. She kept telling me that Jesus is Mynn’s Healer and He would guide the doctors. Together, we spoke words of faith believing Mynn is healed.
After two weeks, Mynn went for her third CT scan and this time, the abscess was gone. All praise to Jesus!
We believe that Jesus had contained the bacteria in the abscess and that was why her blood and urine tests were clear. We would like to thank the church for the good feeding every Sunday, teaching us to stand on righteous ground, partaking the Holy Communion, using the anointing oil, praying in the Spirit, and speaking forth what we want to see.
With grateful hearts, we would like to give all glory to our Lord Jesus for keeping our family under the shadow of His wings.
