Saved and Healed
A miraculous transformation in Syria
Here’s a wonderful story from amidst the suffering in Syria:
My name is Bahije. After my husband was killed in the war, I fled Ghouta (an Al-Qaeda stronghold) and settled with my four children in another village in Syria. Our situation was extremely difficult, so I rented a small room without any utilities just to have a roof over our heads. But I couldn’t work because I was sick, and I couldn’t find a place to take my children so I could start working.
I heard of a church that might help me with some of my basic needs, and I began receiving food baskets and medical services there. I also registered my children in the Sunday school program and started attending church meetings. I asked Jesus to change me and take control of my life. I surrendered my whole life to Him.
One day, suddenly my health situation started deteriorating. After a few medical exams, I was diagnosed with stomach cancer. I immediately went to the church and asked the pastor to pray. I was confident that our God is a living God and the God of miracles. After a week, I went to the doctor for some additional examination. The result was negative—I was completely free of cancer! When the doctor asked me what had happened, I told him that I had sought my Lord Jesus and He healed me. I immediately called the church and said, “I am healed. Jesus healed me, glory to the Lord!”
Through your gifts to Heaven’s Family’s Refugee Ministry, you helped provide those life-saving supplies coupled with the gospel in this Muslim stronghold. Bahije’s life is forever changed and she has become a daughter of the Lord Jesus, King of kings and Lord of lords. Thank you!
