A testimony came in this week to Bro. Daniel and he thought everyone would really enjoy it. It is from Sis. Mary Katheryne, Sis. Fonda Adkins’ mother. Bro. David and Sis. Fonda Adkins have been faithful elders in the church in Genoa, IL for many years.

Email from Sis. Mary Katheryne:

In July of 1995, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I felt like there was a demon in my body. I just wanted to scream or do something. I called Bro. Ron Perry, he prayed for me. He was going to bring my daughter Fonda to be with me. But before they got there, Jesus passed by one day when I was going down my basement stairs. I knew everything was going to be all right. I had such a peace to come over me.

On the 17th of July (1995) I had surgery to remove my breast. The cancer had already gone into my lymph nodes. I went through chemotherapy for that cancer.

Five years later the cancer had gone into the bones, it was on my sacrum & pelvis. I couldn’t have anymore Chemotherapy because my body was so weak. So I had to have an injection once a month to keep the bones from becoming honeycombed with cancer. I went on like that for 6 years. I had to go in for bone scans every so often to keep a check on the cancer.

In April of this year (2007) I was diagnosed with Lung Cancer. Once again I called Bro. Ron Perry for prayer.

Bro. Ron prayed for me and called Bro. Daniel Martin.

Bro Daniel put the prayer request in the weekly news bulletin. Now I had prayers going up for me all around the world!

In October of this year I was hospitalized for pain in my chest and shortness of breath. My Doctor thought I had a blood clot in my lungs. He took a scan of my lungs. There was no blood clot and there was NO CANCER in my lungs. I told him my oncologist had been treating me for lung cancer since April, with injections once a month. He said he didn’t know, “God must have healed me because there was NO CANCER in my lungs”.

In the middle of October of this year I was in church in Genoa, there was a prayer line, I went up for prayer. The lung cancer was gone, but it was still in my body. After going home from Genoa, I had to have another bone scan and a cat scan of my lungs. The doctor’s office called me up to tell me there was NO CANCER in my body, anywhere. I am clear of cancer.

Praise the Lord for His mercies to me all of these years!!! I can’t say thanks enough for your prayers for me. May this testimony help someone to believe for whatever it is you need.

God Bless You All,
Sister Mary Kathryne Chesser
