I spent a month in Redding attending Bethel’s Healing and Creativity School getting equipped, and then I returned home to Jakarta, Indonesia. The day I landed in Indonesia I found out my mother had been rushed to the hospital because she hadn’t been able to eat, drink, or swallow for four days. Everything she swallowed was going into her lungs, so it was like she was drowning. Her lungs were infected, and she got pneumonia.
My mother had diabetes, hypertension, an enlarged heart, and Hepatitis B. She had also had continual stomach pain for 50 years and an acute infection on her intestines for years, so she had difficulty eating and drinking. The doctors had said they couldn’t do anything for her.
The first night I was with her she was half-conscious, and the doctor ran tests that showed she’d had a stroke that paralyzed her throat. He forbade her from drinking, eating, or even swallowing her own saliva, because it would make the infection worse. But the next night we were able to talk and pray with her, and then she miraculously drank half a bottle of water. The doctor was shocked because this should have been impossible!
The next day tests showed that her lung had already cleared and the size of her heart had become normal. The blockage that had been in her neck and brain from the stroke was no longer showing on tests, and she was able to talk and taste normally again, which had been impaired with the stroke.
In the days after that she began to see more and more healing in her body. The hypertension she’d had for 30 years was healed. For 50 years she hadn’t been able to eat anything except porridge or milk, but now she can eat and drink anything she wants, even pineapple juice, without issues!
Her diabetes is also gone, liver function is normal, and ongoing issues with her uterus and bladder from giving birth to twins decades ago were also healed! In addition, she had fallen and crushed a bone in her back, so she could hardly walk. Now she goes for hour-long walks daily with no pain! The team of doctors are completely amazed at my mother’s healing and can’t figure out how it all happened.
Before her healing, my mother did not believe in God or in miracles. But now that she has been healed she says she knows that God loves her, and she has given her life to Jesus!
I shared this testimony in a church and found out later that there had been a couple whose father was in the hospital with a lung infection, pneumonia, and kidney failure, and he had diabetes and a stroke. They had lost hope that he was going to live, but when they heard the testimony of my mother’s healing they claimed it for their father. Two days later, his kidney was functioning again and he was released from the hospital!
