Healed from Crohn's Disease

I first had symptoms of Crohn's Disease when I was twelve year old. I know that now. At the time, the doctors just said it was a growing process. When I was in my late teens the doctors told me that after I had children my system would straighten out. It was not until my twenties that I consulted other medical doctors and they discovered that I had had Crohn's disease since I was twelve.

Typical treatment for Crohn's disease consists of high doses of antibiotics and very dangerous amounts of steroids for long periods of times. Hospitalization is sometimes necessary. When a person has so much pain and dysentery it becomes easier not to eat. 

I went from doctor to doctor trying technique after technique to deal with the problem. The doctor I was seeing had me on a large dosage of Pregdzione, Questran and antibiotics. I was not getting better. He put me in the hospital to be fed the drug intravenously. After two weeks stay in the hospital, I persuaded him to release me.

In the Fall of 1990, I began to pray for a healing. Each night when I went to bed I would plug an earphone in my ear and listen to tapes on healing and positive images. I prayed that God would give me wisdom and understanding so that I could do His will. I prayed for an answer. I was so discouraged that I even prayed that the Lord would take my life. I felt that my life was worthless to myself, to my family and to others.

Riding in the car was a chore. I sat in the car with my hands under my buttocks for shock absorbers. A little bump in the road and I would scream in agony. My husband, Dick would say, "I am sorry, honey." And I would tell him that it wasn't his fault. It is just the road. Roads have bumps in them. But he knew I was in pain and felt real bad about it.

I wanted the Lord to take me home. I would tell Him, "I am no good here. Just take me home." 

Then it happened! Early in 1991, our cleaning lady, Marie invited me to a healing service that her church was putting on. She asked me if I believed that Jesus could heal me? I said, "Yes, if He chooses".

On May 29, 1991, a couple, Charles & Frances Hunter, from Texas, were going to put on a series of meetings to instruct the members of Marie's Church learn to heal the sick by setting up healing teams.

I was invited to step up to the platform by Charles and Francis that day and when Frances laid her hand on me, she prayed for my intestines to be healed so that they were the soft pink color that they should be. She prayed in Jesus name. 

As soon as I came to, I realized that I had no pain. I mean nothing at all. None! Frances told me to do something I couldn't do before. I replied, "I am standing here without pain."

I wanted to run over to my husband. I needed to be with him. I needed to tell him that it really happened. I was healed. Twenty-eight years of pain and it was totally gone. The swelling and inflammation was going down.

I know that Jesus healed yesterday, heals today and will heal again tomorrow. That is why, through faith in my Lord Jesus, I was healed on May 29, 1991. I thank Jesus for giving His life for me.

What is Crohn's Disease?
Crohn's disease causes inflammation in the small intestine. Crohn's disease usually occurs in the lower part of the small intestine, called the ileum, but it can affect any part of the digestive tract, from the mouth to the anus. The inflammation extends deep into the lining of the affected organ. The inflammation can cause pain and can make the intestines empty frequently, resulting in diarrhea...
