Mid-October I received an email from a professor who had read a testimony on Bethel Church’s website of metal disappearing from a woman’s neck. He wanted to know more. He leads a research organization called Global Medical Research Institute (GMRI), which aims to research and obtain medical evidence of supernatural healings. The long-term goal of this organization is to have Christian healing prayer become recognized as a proven, successful, bonafide form of healthcare!
With my background as a surgeon-in-training prior to attending Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry, I was keen to find out more about GMRI. I got connected with the professor and very quickly he revealed he had been praying for someone just like me with a background in medicine and supernatural healings. Following the clear leading of the Lord, he and his team had stepped out in faith and formally established the research institute but they need more manpower to continue. Throughout our phone conversation, I was buzzing with excitement! I didn’t know the reason yet but I knew the conversation was significant. By the end of our conversation he had invited my husband and me to the East Coast to meet in person and discuss the possibility of me joining their team.
While in medical school I had considered formal research but decided I didn’t want to spend time on something that was not necessarily going to advance medical practice. Two years ago a woman from my Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry class told me she felt God showed her I would be involved in research in the future. I recorded her words but didn’t give it too much thought until I remembered it while I was on the phone with the professor. Two days before we flew out to visit the professor, a friend told me God had showed her we were being fast-tracked into promotion because we had continually said yes to what God has put in front of us. After a very successful meeting with the professor he offered me a significant position with GMRI!
The vision of GMRI is astounding-it is not only affecting healthcare today, it is also establishing a field of evidence that will make a way for Christian healing prayer to be taught in medical schools across the country. GMRI is building a legacy that will only become stronger and stronger, pioneering the way for Christian healing prayer to become a norm in society. God is moving in the medical world by marrying the natural and supernatural gifts of healing!
