Multiple Healings After Years of Prayer

Prayer yields miraculous results to the life threatening medical conditions affecting Carol's baby, Sandra. Read Transcript


IT WAS VERY TRAUMATIC.

IT WAS NOT WHAT ANY MOM

WOULD WANT TO HEAR.

Reporter: CAROL WAS

PREGNANT WITH HER FIRST

CHILD AND HAD A ROUTINE

ULTRASOUND.

IT REVEALED HER DAUGHTER HAD

EXCESSIVE FLUID IN HER

BRAIN.

THE ONE DOCTOR I HAD SAID

SHE HAD AN 80% CHANCE OF

BEING MENTALLY RETARDED,

BLIND AND/OR DEATH BECAUSE

OF THE COMPRESSION OF THE

BRAIN WHILE SHE WAS FORMING

IN MY BODY.

Reporter: THAT SAME

DOCTOR ENCOURAGED CAROL TO

HAVE AN ABORTION.

SHE AND HER HUSBAND, PAUL,

DIDN'T EVEN NEED TO DISCUSS

IT.

THE EASIEST DECISION WAS

TO CHANGE DOCTORS.

GOD HAS GIVEN US THIS

CHILD.

AND IF HE WANTS US TO HAVE

THIS CHILD, WHATEVER THE

ISSUES ARE, WE'RE GOING TO

HAVE THIS CHILD.

Reporter: CAROL CARRIED

THE BABY FULL TERM AND THEY

NAMED HER SANDRA.

SHE HAD SEVERAL PHYSICAL

DEFORMITIES, THE MOST

NOTICEABLE WAS A MISSING

LEFT EYELID, BUT THERE WERE

OTHER PROBLEMS.

WHEN THEY STARTED WORKING

WITH HER EYE, THEY ALSO

FOUND SHE ALSO HAD A HOLE IN

HER HEART.

AS MORE AND MORE TESTS WERE

MADE, MORE AND MORE PROBLEMS

WHAT JUST SHOW UP.

SANDRA HAD KIDNEY

ISSUES.

WE NOTICED HER LEFT SIDE

WAS NOT KEEPING UP WITH THE

RIGHT SIDE.

HER LEFT ARM WAS SMALLER AND

HER LEFT LEG WAS SMALLER.

IT WAS A VERY DIFFICULT

FIRST YEAR.

Reporter: ONE DAY THE

DOCTOR CALLED AND GAVE THEM

MORE BAD NEWS.

HE SAID IF HER KIDNEYS

CONTINUED TO DETERIORATE AT

THIS RATE, SHE WOULD BE DEAD

WITHIN THE YEAR.

I JUST REMEMBER HANGING UP

THE PHONE, AND I HAD MY BACK

TO THE WALL, AND I JUST SLID

DOWN THE WALL.

AND JUST BROKE DOWN AND

CRIED.

AND I HAD NO HOPE.

I DID NOT HAVE HOPE.

I DID NOT KNOW WHERE TO GO.

I DID NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO.

MY DAUGHTER NEEDED HEALING,

AND I WANTED SOMEBODY TO

HELP PRAY WITH ME.

AND I WENT FROM CHURCH TO

CHURCH, AND I BASICALLY GOT

THE SAME ANSWERS, WHICH WAS

THAT GOD MADE HER THIS WAY.

YOU HAVE TO ACCEPT THIS.

IT WAS DEVASTATING.

IT WAS A VERY ISOLATING

TIME.

Reporter: CAROL WAS

FLIPPING THROUGH CHANNELS

ONE DAY AND FOUND A SHOW HE

NEVER WATCHED BEFORE, "THE

700 CLUB."

Pat: THERE IS NOTHING

IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD.

PAT ROBERTSON WAS ON TV,

AND HE STARTED TALKING ABOUT

A GOD WHO STILL HEALS, A GOD

WHO STILL HEALS.

THOSE ARE INCREDIBLE WORDS.

I HAD NOT HEARD THEM IN ANY

OF THE CHURCHES.

I HAD NOT HEARD THEM FROM

THE PEOPLE.

I JUST HEARD THAT I HAD TO

JUST ACCEPT THE WAY SANDRA

WAS GOING TO BE, PROBABLY IN

A WHEELCHAIR, OR PROBABLY

WITH A WALKER.

BUT THIS MAN ON TV SAID

THERE IS A GOD WHO STILL

HEALS.

THAT WAS AMAZING.

IT WAS AMAZING.

IT WAS EXACTLY WHAT I NEEDED

TO HEAR.

WHEN CAROL DISCOVERED

"THE 700 CLUB," AND HEARD OF

A GOD THAT DOES HEAL TODAY,

IT WAS AWESOME.

AND THEN WE STARTED

BELIEVING THAT SANDRA CAN BE

HEALED.

GOD CAN DO THIS.

THERE WAS HOPE FOR

SANDRA.

THERE WAS HOPE.

Reporter: CAROL BEGAN

WATCHING THE SHOW EVERY

DAY.

ONE TIME, WHILE PRAYING FOR

SANDRA'S KIDNEYS, SHE SAYS

SHE FELT POWER GO THROUGH

HER HAND AS SHE TOUCHED HER

DAUGHTER'S BACK.

THE NEXT DOCTOR'S VISIT

REVEALED SOMETHING AMAZING.

SHE HAD ANOTHER

ULTRASOUND, AND THE HOLE IN

THE HEART WAS GONE.

AND THEY COULD NOT FIND

ANYTHING WRONG WITH HER

HEART.

AND I STARTED JUMPING UP

AND DOWN.

I GO, OH, IT WASN'T HER

KIDNEYS, IT WAS HER HEART.

IT WAS HER HEART.

I'M JUMPING UP AND DOWN AND

PRAISING GOD.

IF WE BEGIN TO BELIEVE

IT, GOD CAN DO ANYTHING.

Reporter: THAT HAPPENED

ALMOST 20 YEARS AGO.

SINCE THEN CAROL AND PAUL

SAY THERE HAVE BEEN MANY

MORE MIRACLES.

THE BIGGEST ONE WAS THE JOY

OF WATCHING THEIR DAUGHTER

GROW UP.

SHE HAS EYELASHES WHERE

THEY COULDN'T REALLY GROW.

IT'S JUST SKIN PULLED FROM

THE SIDE OF HER FACE, BUT

GOD PUT EYELASHES ON THAT

EYELID.

GOD DID THAT MIRACULOUSLY

SO I CAN HAVE EYELASHES,

EVEN THOUGH IT IS NOT A

TYPICAL, NORMAL EYELID.

THE HOLE IN HER HEART IS

GONE, HER KIDNEYS ARE NOW

FUNCTIONING AT NORMAL.

SHE HAS TWO LEGS THAT ARE

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT AND

BEAUTIFUL.

SHE WENT ON TO BE A

CHEERLEADER.

SHE IS NOW ON THE DEAN'S

LIST AT THE COLLEGE SHE GOES

TO, AND I AM JUST SO PROUD

OF HER.

THERE IS NOTHING THAT SHE

CAN'T DO, TRUSTING IN GOD.

Reporter: TODAY THE

FAMILY SAYS THEY HAVE BEEN

FOREVER CHANGED THROUGH THE

HEALING POWER AND LOVE OF

JESUS CHRIST.

THE BIBLE SAYS ALL THINGS

ARE POSSIBLE THROUGH

CHRIST.

AND I JUST WANT PEOPLE TO

UNDERSTAND THAT, THAT THEY

REALLY CAN TRUST HIM AND

FOCUS THEIR LIVES AROUND HIM

BECAUSE HE REALLY IS THE

ONLY ONE THAT WE CAN FULLY

DEPEND ON AND TRUST IN.

JESUS CHRIST IS THE SAME

YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND

FOREVER.

I HAVE SEEN HIS HEALING

TOUCH, AND I FELT HIS

HEALING TOUCH, AND HE DOES

HEAL TODAY.

AND THE BIGGEST STORY, LIKE

I SAID, IS NOT THE HEART OR

THE LEGS, BUT A LIFE HAS

BEEN CHANGED.

IT IS HOPE YOU CAN'T GET

FROM THE WORLD OR EVEN

INDIVIDUAL RELIGIONS.

IT IS ABOUT A GOD WHO LOVES

US.

AND HE STILL IS.

IT'S VERY EXCITING.
