Thai Woman Healed

Doug Derbyshire is a medical missionary serving in Thailand with the Southern Baptist Convention. In a recent newsletter he told a story that revealed Godís healing power at work.

On a particularly busy dayó70 some sick patients that morning, multiple ultrasounds, 3 patients diagnosed with canceróDr. Derbyshire prayed for God to show him His task for him that day.

Dr. Derbyshire writes: Just minutes passed and a 55 y/o woman came inóa month early for her scheduled appointment. She said she had quit taking the meds I had given her because she had been cured by Jesus. "Every night I pray to Jesus, and my grandson reads me again the tract you gave me (the God you donít know...), and since I started doing that, my symptoms all went away!" She was very happy. I told her that God wanted to take away more than just her health problems. He wanted to take away her sin. After a good talk she prayed to receive Christ as her Lord and Savior right in exam room 1. As soon as she finished she said, 'I want my husband to pray that too!'
