By Samuel O. Doku (Washington, DC). Two members of Amazing Love Church Ministry Int’l recently gave testimonies to vindicate the sanctimonious presence of the fire of God in the lives of believers who are members of the Church. While Mrs. Honorine Ngatchou testified about the miraculous healing powers of God, Mama Lucienne Kaham gave the glory to God for miraculously delivering her from a $7,115.00 indebtedness.
About a month ago, Mrs. Ngatchou woke up from bed feeling a slight pain in her chest. Thinking it was nothing serious, she dressed and decided to go to work that morning. On second thought, however, she felt the need to tell her husband, Mr. Joseph Ngatchou about the pain, who without any hesitation told her to go and see her doctor first before going to work.
Mrs. Ngatchou obeyed her husband and drove to be evaluated by the family doctor. “When I got to the doctor’s office, I told him about the pain I was feeling. On reading my vital signs, he decided I should go and do a chest x-ray to ensure everything was all right. I went and the x-ray was done, and I was asked to leave to come for the results later on,” stated Mrs. Ngatchou.
However, the “later on” never materialized because about five minutes into her journey to the office, her cell phone rang. It was the doctor calling her to stop the car wherever she was and have someone else drive her back to his office. When she returned to the doctor’s office, Mrs. Ngatchou was given the news that there was oxygen shortage in her lungs. “The doctor told me the oxygen in my lungs was just about 18 percent.
“What that meant was if I had continued driving to the office, I would have run out of oxygen and would have collapsed in the car. And who knows what would have happened? I don’t need to tell you what happens when one is driving and collapses behind the wheels? stated Mrs. Ngatchou.
She was quickly rushed in an ambulance to Doctors Community Hospital in Maryland where she was admitted. When her husband was informed about his wife’s admission, he informed the first lady of the Church, Mrs. Mildred Ntemi and the pastors. Soon, the news spread to other members of the Church and the gears of the Church and its members were shifted into prayer mode.
While some members visited to pray for her, others prayed with her on the phone. Her husband who was inundated and overawed with his wife’s sudden ailment, spent the first couple of nights by her bedside. With her treatment combining with prayers, a hospital stay that was supposed to last for over week, lasted only four days.
“The Holy Spirit healed me spiritually while medical science took care of the physical part. I am particularly grateful to Mrs. Leoni Tchatat, president of the Evangelism Ministry who fervently prayed with me on the phone. I thank my husband for praying with me on the phone. He was tired so he had to go home to be with the children. I also thank the pastors and all those who visited me at the Hospital and prayed for me,” noted Mrs. Ngatchou in profound appreciation.
If Mrs. Ngatchou’s testimony was in glorification of the Lord for her spiritual deliverance, Ms. Kaham’s testimony devolved on financial liberation. About three years ago, Ms. Kaham had surgery. Because she had insurance, she thought, it would defray the cost of her surgery. But, after the surgery and the hospital sent the bill, the insurance company refused to foot the bill under the pretext that Ms. Kaham’s particular surgery was not covered by her premium.
Ms. Kaham, a widow who has raised five daughters on her own, decided to leave everything in the hands of God to fight her battles on her behalf. After praying over it, she went to Pastor Georges Ntemi with the bill to let him know the raw deal the insurance company had given her. The senior pastor also put it into prayers to see how best he could help Ms. Kaham.
In the course of the fervent and passionate prayers, Ms. Kaham’s prayers were answered when the Department of Human Services showed its humane side by deciding to pay a bulk of the bill, leaving a balance of a little over $1,100 that Pastor Georges paid off.
Before testifying, Ms. Kaham asked the choir to sing “The Lord is my Strength” to indicate the enduring goodness of God in the lives of those who believe in Him. The power of God is real. BELIEVE IT AND TRUST IN HIM.
