Her Miracle Was Around the Corner

A rare condition left Angela immobilized and the prognosis was not hopeful, but her praises to God never wavered and a miracle was around the corner. Read Transcript


Reporter: THE HUNTLEY

FAMILY HAD A WONDERFUL TIME

ON THEIR VACATION IN THE

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC, BUT WHEN

THEY CAME HOME, ANGELA

BECAME ILL.

TWO WEEKS AFTER WE GOT

HOME, I HAD WHAT WAS VIRAL.

I FELT MYSELF NOT BEING ABLE

TO GET OFF THE COUCH.

MY LIMBS FELT SO HEAVY.

IT STARTED TO BECOME HARD TO

LIFT MY HEAD AND SOMETIMES

TO BREATHE.

WE'RE TESTING FOR THIS AND

TESTING FOR THIS, BUT

EVERYTHING SHOWED UP FINE.

SO THE DOCTORS SEEM

FRUSTRATED IN ME, THAT MAYBE

IT WAS ALL IN MY MIND.

NOW AT THIS POINT, I LOST

EIGHT WEEKS OF MY LIFE.

IT STARTED TO APPEAR

HOPELESS.

Reporter: A DOCTOR, WHO

WAS A FAMILY FRIEND, BEGAN

INVESTIGATING ANGELA'S

SYMPTOMS, IN HOPES OF

DISCOVERING A REASON FOR HER

ILLNESS.

I KNEW HE WAS DIGGING.

I GOT A CALL, AND THEY TOLD

ME THEY FOUND -- THERE IS A

CONDITION CALLED SIGWATERA,

AND HE FOUND AT THE TIME

THAT THE ONLY PLACE THAT WAS

TESTING FOR THIS SOC SIN

TOXIN AND COULD GIVE YOU A

POSITIVE TEST WAS THE

UNIVERSITY OF HAWAII,

BECAUSE THEY WERE CONDUCTING

A STUDY.

Reporter: IT IS A FOOD

BORNE ILLNESS THAT COMES

FROM EATING TROPICAL AND SUB

TROPICAL FISH.

SEVERAL DAYS LATER, I WE

GOT BACK POSITIVE

INFORMATION THAT I HAD

SIGWATERA.

I WASN'T EATING RAW FISH.

EVERYTHING WAS COOKED WELL,

AND THEY WERE VERY COMMON

FISH.

Reporter: THE TOXIN IS

ODORLESS, TASTELESS, AND

VERY HEAT RESISTANT,

VIRTUALLY UNDETECT TABLE.

UNFORTUNATELY, THERE IS NO

TREATMENT AND NO CURE.

FOR SOME PEOPLE, IT ENDS

IN DEATH.

SOME PEOPLE THE SICKNESS

RUNS A COURSE OF OF, LIKE,

25 YEARS.

I FELT LIKE I WAS IN A

COMA.

I COULDN'T OPEN MY EYES OR

MOVE MY HEAD, BUT I COULD

HEAR EVERYTHING.

I COULD HEAR MY CHILDREN

PLAYING AND I COULD HEAR

OTHER PEOPLE TAKING CARE OF

THEM.

I KNEW WHAT WAS GOING ON,

BUT I COULDN'T PARTICIPATE.

I HAD MY HUSBAND TAKE ME TO

THE ELDERS OF OUR CHURCH AT

THE TIME, AND THEY ANOINTED

ME AND PAID FOR ME.

I REMEMBER ONE OF MY PASTORS

LOOKED AT ME AS I LEFT, AND

SHE SAID, ANGIE, HAVE YOU

THANKED GOD IN THIS?

AND MY HEART JUST BROKE WHEN

HE SAID THAT BECAUSE I

THOUGHT I KNOW THE

SCRIPTURES.

AND I KNOW I'M SUPPOSED TO

THANK HIM.

AND I HADN'T.

IT WAS SO DIFFICULT TO START

SPEAKING OUT GRATITUDE FOR

SOMETHING THAT I HATED SO

MUCH.

BECAUSE I DID HATE THE

SICKNESS.

I WAS BEING ROBBED.

I WAS BEING ROBBED OF TIME

WITH MY KIDS.

I MISSED CHRISTMAS.

I MISSED 12 WEEKS OF MY

LIFE.

BUT YET, EVERY TIME I SPOKE

OUT, THANK YOU FOR THIS.

THANK YOU THAT I DON'T

UNDERSTAND WHAT IS GOING ON,

AND THANK YOU THAT I DON'T

EVEN KNOW IF I'M GOING TO

LIVE TO SEE ANOTHER DAY, I

JUST KEPT HEARING BECAUSE I

WILL BE GLORIFIED.

AND I WOULD SAY THAT,

BECAUSE YOU WILL BE

GLORIFIED IN THIS.

I FELT MYSELF YELLING,

BECAUSE YOU WILL BE

GLORIFIED!

BECAUSE YOU WILL BE

GLORIFIED!

Reporter: ANGELA WASN'T

HEALED AT THAT MOMENT, BUT

SOMETHING SHIFTED.

AS SHE FOUND STRENGTH IN

PRAISING GOD, HER HEALING

WOULD COME WITH REVELATION.

WHEN YOU SPEAK GRATITUDE,

THE ENEMY DOESN'T SPEAK THAT

LANGUAGE.

I FELT SOMETHING BREAK

DURING THAT TIME.

I LEARNED ABOUT SOZO, WHICH

IS A GREEK WORD.

IT IS IN THE NEW TESTAMENT

110 TIMES, AND ITS

TRANSLATION IS PHYSICALLY

HEALED, REDEEMED, DELIVERED,

AND RESCUED.

IN THAT MOMENT, SOMETHING

CHANGED INSIDE OF ME.

THERE WAS, LIKE, A SWITCH

THAT WENT OFF.

AND THE LORD SAID TO ME, YOU

NEVER EVER DOUBT I'M YOUR

SAVIOR, BUT I'M YOUR HEALER

JUST AS MUCH AS I AM YOUR

SAVIOR.

YOU CAN'T JUST HAVE PART OF

ME.

YOU HAVE TO HAVE ALL OF ME.

AND IT HIT ME, AS MUCH AS I

AM SAVED, I AM HEALED.

AND I UNDERSTAND WHY SO MANY

PEOPLE -- WHY JESUS SAID

YOUR FAITH HAS MADE YOU WELL

BECAUSE SOMETHING SWITCHED

IN ME.

I JUST KNEW I WAS HEALED.

MY HUSBAND CAME DOWNSTAIRS

DOWNSTAIRS, AND I'M LAYING

THERE, PROPPED UP, AND I'M,

LIKE, GOD JUST HEALED ME.

AND I GOT UP.

I MEAN, I GOT UP.

AND MY KIDS WERE RIGHT THERE

IN THE LIVING ROOM, AND WE

JUST, LIKE, LOOKED AT EACH

OTHER AND STARTED LAUGHING

AND SCREAMING.

AND WE TURNED ON MUSIC AND

WE STARTED DANCING.

AND I KNEW I WAS HEALED.

I WAS OVERWHELMED.

I WAS SO OVERWHELMED BY THE

HEALING THAT IN THAT MOMENT,

I LOOKED IN THE EYES OF MY

FOUR LITTLE BOYS AND I

REALIZED THEY WOULD ALWAYS

KNOW, AND NEVER DOUBT, THAT

JESUS IS HEALING.
