Samuel was at the end of his rope. He couldn’t believe he was facing illness yet again. Why was this happening to him? Why did he have to endure more physical suffering? Even his friends were taunting him, saying it was his fault for not worshiping the native gods as fervently as he once did. He had nowhere to turn . . . again.
Help of a Relative
Samuel and his wife, Emma, lived in a small Asian village that was without access to proper medical care and sanitation, which complicated the lives of all villagers. Samuel had suffered from paralysis for the past two years and had tried everything to be cured: medications, alternative therapies and even a witch doctor. They spent a great deal of money in the process, but nothing had worked.
When Samuel’s relative Eric, who was a migrant worker and a Christian, returned home and learned about Samuel’s condition, he immediately visited Samuel. He saw the terrible condition his relative was in and heard that nothing else had worked for him. Eric knew Samuel needed a miracle, and he knew where his relative could find one.
The Power of Prayer
Samuel was reluctant to accept Eric’s invitation to attend his church for prayer, but he had no other options. Once inside the church, he met Gospel for Asia (GFA) pastor Mason, who shared with him Jesus’ love.
