Testimonies



INTRODUCTION:

This page contains two broad categories of personal testimonies. Under the first category are testimonies of healing which are usually physical, but sometimes also emotional and relational. The second category encompasses testimonies of personal conversion and transformation and are usually excerpts from Life in the Spirit Seminar teachings. If you, the reader (who, in this Internet-connected world, can be anywhere in this globe) has a testimony to share for the upbuilding of the Church and the Alliance, you may email this to the editor at this address: narsalbarra@yahoo.com.

HEALED OF LYMPHEDEMA

I'd heard of healings in the Bible, but I never imagined one would happen to me. In 2008, I had aggressive stage 3 breast cancer. After surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation, I was struck with lymphedema (a significant swelling of my left arm, hand and fingers) that is permanent. No cure. My arm was also numb and had limited range of motion. I met Bob Canton in 2009 at a Festival of Healing and Worship Conference in Arizona. Bro. Bob prayed over me and said, "Sister, great things will be happening for you." I also received a copy of Bob's Healing and Keeping Prayer and prayed it with expectant faith daily for almost two years while also seeking God through women's Bible study, Mass, prayer groups, retreats (Christ Renews His Parish and a Cursillo) and Charismatic Renewal. On Sept. 23, 2011 in my kitchen a "voice" spoke to my heart stating, "You are healed." And my arm was instantly restored to normal. My doctors said it is "medically unexplainable." At my 5-yr cancer check-up recently, my oncologist declared, "Frankly, I'm surprised you're still alive. Whatever you are doing, keep on doing it." He also affirmed me cancer free. With God, all things are possible. Have faith!

Migraine and Rejection
Sr. Valerie Swenson, O.S.B.
Nanaimo, BC, Canada

I'm finally writing my testimony from the Edmonton Conference. Wow, it's been quite a ride since then. Our Lord is gracious to fulfill His promises. You called forth a word of knowledge on migraine headaches and I received prayer for those migraines. I still do have migraines but they are less intense and less frequent than they were. I expect that the healing is incremental subsequent to the emotional healing.

After Mass on Saturday came the healing session. You then called out a word of knowledge on the healing of incest & sexual abuse issues. I snapped my head to attention, I was not going to miss out on prayer for incest issues! I have been plagued and adversely affected by these "nasty's" my entire life, except for the first 2 weeks of my life.I was immediately slain in the Spirit, spent quite some time on the floor resting in the Spirit. When I was finally able to be assisted to stand, then sit on the steps, the Lord continued healing me. Josie D. came and prayed with me. The short version is that deep deep healing was occurring, and oh my God, has healing ever occurred! Praise the Lord.

I have steadily been healed from rejection ever since. At one point Jesus even informed me, "Now you are rejecting Me." Wow, I never knew that! Turns out that I had a spirit of rejection too and I never knew that either. So I've been doing lots of repenting and lots of forgiving.

If you want the detailed story I will provide that in another email. That was a very powerful conference and Satan did a lot to keep me from attending it, from migraine headaches to my travelling friend being hospitalized in Alberta for 2 months with illnesses from which she nearly died. She eventually was medivac'd back to Nanaimo. She is now well and one would never know she'd been sick at all. Satan went to a lot of trouble to keep me away from that conference but he failed - Jesus won! Praise the Lord. While I was attending that conference, my friend Joyce was already hospitalized and was sinking to death's door and I was at the conference experiencing a vicious migraine. Satan lost this battle - Jesus won!

I think I'm babbling, so I'll stop now. Be rest assured that my 'trip' since then has been a really difficult one but oh so blessed. I have experienced so much of God's love that I am just overwhelmed.

Thank you for the conference and for being God's instrument in many healings but certainly in my healing. Thanks and may God richly bless you.



Glaucoma and Soul Whisperer
Shirley Solari (Stockton, CA)

I have lost a great deal of sight in my left eye due to glaucoma. Because glaucoma is incurable and surgery was done to prevent further loss and the Doctor at UC Davis had me undergo an MRI of the brain and optic nerve, naturally, I was so afraid. Some good friends from St. Luke's Parish said I should go to the Healing Mass. Their faith is so strong and they told me that many people have been healed through your ministry. So, in September, I attended the Healing Mass. You and your team prayed over me.

It is hard to explain the experience of total surrender to God; it is a feeling of complete peace and trust, which for me in itself is a miracle. I know from just that experience that God was teaching me: we do not just see with our eyes, we see through our emotions, our fears, and the baggage of past experiences. We see through our soul. Without trust in God, we cannot say confidently: "I believe, I love, I adore, I hope." That is what God wanted me to learn in that healing. Secondly, I received a call from UC Davis that the results of the MRI were: no abnormalities, no lesions, and it was not necessary to follow up with the neuro-ophthalmologist. Thank God! My eyes have really improved a lot ever since that day you prayed over me and new glasses will improve my vision even more. I trust in God's power and goodness. I know now, fear is not faith. Thank you, Bob Canton, and your healing teams for bringing God's Love and healing to us.

Sometimes I think, well, there is a "horse whisperer" to calm down unmanageable horses, and a "dog whisperer" to help dogs with all sorts of problems. So, it is that I can call Bob Canton, the "soul whisperer" and I mean that with thanks and respect and I ask God to help you reach out and help as many souls as possible. God bless you and your healing teams. You are a great blessing to those who are sick and in need of God's healing touch.

Normalization of kidney function
Dr. Ray Caparros, Millersville, MD

Thank you again, Bro. Bob, for praying over me yesterday. I called you because my serum creatinine on blood test was 1.62 (normal: 0.6-1.27). I was having dizzy spells for the past week and I called my cardiologist and he ordered routine blood tests. I have a history of cardiac catheterization with stent placement 10 yrs. ago and I have had multiple exposures to IV dye. Two months ago, I was having abdominal pains and numerous tests were done, including abdominal CT scan with IV contrast. Before that test, I had a serum creatinine of 1.26, which was high normal.

Anyway, with an elevation of my serum creatinine to 1.62. I was concerned. I consulted a renal specialist who ordered so many tests including kidney ultrasound; his diagnosis was acute renal failure. I was really scared knowing what my patients on dialysis have to undergo (I even asked my wife if she would be willing to give me one of her kidneys!!).

Last night, my wife and I went to Adoration (Blessed Sacrament), as that was our scheduled date with our Lord every week, and this morning, we went to Mass and received Him in the Holy Eucharist. I asked our Lord to have His Blood flow through my heart and kidneys since He was there in me. I then went to the hospital and had my blood test and urine test.

Praise God! My serum creatinine is 1.16 (normal) and urine test is normal.

I thank the Lord for his goodness and love for those who love Him. I thank you Bro. Bob again for your time and kindness for those who seek your help to pray for them in the name of Jesus. What you said after you prayed with me was really true. You said, "The Lord is telling me to tell you, Ray, not to be afraid, because everything will be OK."

Healing of Left Shoulder Pain

The problem with my left shoulder started some twenty years ago. It was low-grade pain in the beginning and it did not affect motion or position of my arm. It did not affect my activities of daily living either but it gradually and intermittently bothered my tennis game. A point was reached when I could not raise my arm to toss the tennis ball or do my usual chores around the house. So I had to see an orthopedic surgeon at an internationally-renown medical center in Cleveland, Ohio, where I was diagnosed with a case of rotator cuff tendonitis. All ancillary tests were normal. I was given an injection of corticosteroid, advised rest and subsequent physical therapy. On follow-up I was given another injection of corticosteroid and advised more physical therapy. Improvement came slowly and I was able to return to playing tennis again and other physical activities.

Then we retired in 2001 and eventually moved to Florida. Then I noticed my left shoulder occasionally would bother me again although mildly. But my bigger problem at this time was pain and recurrent swelling in my left knee due to osteoarthritis. A rheumatologist aspirated fluid from my knee and injected corticosteroid into the joint. I was later evaluated by an orthopedic surgeon who concurred with the conservative treatment. All this time I wore a knee brace almost everyday but especially during extended travels. Meanwhile, the left shoulder problem flared up again causing me severe pain even on lifting a small frying pan. Consequently, I was back at the rheumatologist's office.

During the winter of 2011 we were invited to attend a seminar where Brother Bob Canton was the featured speaker. We accepted the invitation without hesitation because we already had heard that Brother Bob had received the rare gift of healing from the Holy Spirit. And the Vatican had also acknowledged his ministry. My husband and I even volunteered to help the group in some minor capacity. Brother Bob prayed over me and with several attendees. Brother Bob touched my left shoulder then prayed with me. Needless to say, the seminar was a huge success.

My left shoulder now has full range of motion and is pain-free. With humility I pray to thank the Holy Spirit for helping Brother Bob help me. {P.S.: Brother Bob also prayed over my husband's cousin's daughter who had been married 5 years but could not conceive. Now she is expecting to have a baby next month, gender unknown by choice.}

Scleroderma Symptoms Relieved
Juana Bustamante- Anthony, NM

My name is Juana Bustamante from Anthony, New Mexico. About two years ago we attended your healing service at a Catholic Church in northeast El Paso, Texas.You may, or may not, remember us. My sister, Lala Garcia from Glendale, CA (who was in El Paso at the time and had previously talked to you about my daughter, Debora Flores.)

My daughter, Debora, has scleroderma, an incurable disease. Scleroderma is a hardening of the skin. A chronic connective tissue disease generally classified as one of the autoimmune rheumatic diseases. My daughter has the systemic form of scleroderma which can affect different parts of the body and organs.

Besides being afflicted with this incurable disease, my daughter's husband of ten years left her and her two children, (1 and 6 years of age at that time). He left her for another woman.

Your healing service touched our hearts and transformed our relationship with God forever. God became more real, more tangible. True, we go to mass every Sunday and pray as a family, but my daughter's illness has brought us much, much closer to God. God is our refuge and we thank our Lord that you are a conduit through which God sends his healing love. We are thankful to the Lord for giving us the opportunity to have been in your presence.

I know then my daughter started healing. Not long after the healing service, we received very good results from her doctors at the Mayo Clinic. My daughter's lung capacity had increased from 74 to 84. Praise God! Her kidneys have not been affected. Her skin is more supple. My Lord has given us a miracle. He is healing my daughter. Praise be to God.

I wanted to give a testimony of God's miraculous healing. Thus I am writing this letter — to give thanks and praise to our Lord for giving us this miracle and to thank you for your prayers for my daughter.

I ask God to fill us with his Holy Spirit and not to waiver in our faith, to increase His Mercy in us and that in difficult moments, we might not despair nor become despondent and to submit ourselves completely to His Holy will. I know that we want answers to our prayers right away. But God, in his own time, will answer. He will be there to guide us with whatever his decision may be.

Lungs Healed
Sis.Mel Lagana, Couples for Chirst- Dubai, UAE

Oct. 18, 2004 I was rushed to Rashid Hospital , Dubai , UAE, for breathing difficulty. I thought it was because of my hypertension, but I was diagnosed with a fibrosis. My lungs were not functioning normally anymore. They were not absorbing oxygen. My body's oxygen supply was only 50% of normal. I was advized by the doctors to use an oxygen concentrator to supply my body with the right amount of oxygen. I had to use it for 18 hours a day. I was told not to do any housework and that I must have complete rest. After a year it was reduced to 16 hours.

During this time I continuously prayed for healing. I never stopped praising and thanking Him. We continued our services with Couples for Christ as Chapter 2 Head Servants.

Finally, God answered my prayer. Dec. 7-9, 2008 we attended the 1st Gulf Catholic Charismatic Conference in Abu Dhabi, UAE. Because it was a 3 day conference, I had to bring my oxygen tank with me.

It was during the healing session that Bro. Bob Canton declared there was somebody in the audience who was suffering from lung sickness and the Lord was healing that person. Afterwards we went to see Bob Canton and he prayed over me. I felt something very cold in my back, followed by something very warm as if my body was on fire. I felt better afterwards and we went home to Dubai that day. My husband was very surprised that night that I did not use my oxygen concentrator in my sleep. Before that day, I had to have oxygen even during my sleeping time. A few days later I started to do my household chores and living normally again. My doctor was very surprised that my lungs and the oxygen level have returned to normal again. I thank God for answering my prayers. Until now I always thank, praise and glorify HIM and I still pray for healing not for me but for other sick peopel. PRAISE GOD. ALLELUIA.

Autism Cured
Maria "Meg" Duran-Stockton, CA

I am writing to let you know how the good Lord, our Father healed my son of autism. We were going frequently to the Children of God St. Luke's healing sessions since last year. My son, Denzel Martin was diagnosed with autism ever since he was three years old. When we migrated to the US when he was five years old, we got another formal diagnosis from a local California doctor.

Last year after 8 years, through the referral of the Valley Medical Regional Center, Martin underwent another assessment through the same doctor. And amazingly, that same doctor told us that he had managed his way out of the autism sprectrum disorder.

I believe in this miracle and the two comparable reports will document that the good Lord, our Saviour has healed my son. With your prayers and by the praying the healing and keeping prayer which you shared with us, my son was saved from the claws of the enemy. It is with constant prayers, sacrifices, lots of faith and hope that he was healed.

We the parents have to do our work and it was not an easy journey but we know that we were never alone, that our Lord Jesus was walking with us. I want to proclaim to the world that Jeus is the greatest healer, physician and friend.

Please continue to pray for our family as we go on with this journey. Praise the Lord, Alleluia.

Side Effects of Cancer Eased
Hilda

I have been saying the Healing and Keeping Prayer everyday. I have prayed to the Lord to heal me physically and spiritually. I am so glad and thankful to HIM for touching and healing me.

I was diagnosed with cervical cancer about three years ago, and have been treated with radiotherapy after its recurrence six months later in 2007. For the first 1-1.5 years after my treatment, I was eating and living well with no complications, but I never for once thought the worst was yet to come. Early this year, I began to feel tired and I lost so much blood, resulting in my need for a blood transfusion. I went for many checkups, fearing that the cancer may recur in other parts of my body. However, my test results did not show any malignant growth. The doctors found that all these were as a results of the radiation. Doctors burnt the bleeding points in my rectum to minimize the bleeding. Somehow, the process may have triggered other complications which resulted in me experiencing pain on my pelvis especially when I cleared my bowels and passed urine. I needed to go for injections and take a lot of painkillers to ease the pain. Everyday seemed to be torture and I only took minimal amounts of food.

I never for once thought about turning to GOD during my ordeal until one day my niece called me, knowing how I suffered, to ask if I like to have the prayer group pray over me. I am Catholic but have not been to church for a long time. Somehow, I finally agreed.This is the beginning of my renewed relationship with the Lord. Ever since my return to the Lord, I realise and notice that my pain is getting less each day. From a few hours to none at all. I do not have to be on painkillers or japs. Despite this, I continue to say the healing prayer every night. Although there is still some bleeding on certain days depending on my diet, it does not bother me at all as I know these are side effects which could take time to heal. I no longer feel lethargic, anaemic or in pain. I can now continue to work and take part in my social activities without having to worry when the pain will strike.

I am so glad that I have made the right decision to go back to the Lord. Our Heavenly Father, HIS beloved Son, Jesus and Our Immaculate Mother of God have never failed us. We must continue to have faith and continue to place our trust in HIM. Our Lord is good and HE loves us. Praise the Lord and Adore HIM. HE never fails us if we truly and sincerely turn to HIM for guidance.

Biopsy Results Negative
Ralph Ontiveros- Stockton, CA

In July 2009, I had a biopsy done. The Doctor told my wife & family that most likely it was cancer. It would take a week for results. This really concerned us because 9 years earlier I was diagnosed with colon cancer and by the Grace of God and three surgeries later I was healed from the cancer. As days went by we had many sleepless nights. With the prayer support of family and friends including Bob Canton who's message from God was "Be not Afraid for I go before you. Your healing is underway for my Father's glory." His prayer and message gave us strength & peace & comfort as we went to get the results. When the Doctor came in he smiled and said you're okay- no cancer. He then said he didn't understand it. From what he saw, it was cancer. He even had it tested three different ways to make sure. My wife told him it was by the Grace of God that the cancer was gone. He said I guess so, there's no other explanation. He was happy to give good news. We give all honor and glory to God for His healing touch and for Bob who was very understanding with us even when we call him late at night at various times for prayer.

Healing of my Frozen Arm
Patricia, France

On the 16th February 2009, while on visit in my hometown in Singapore, I attended a Healing Rally organized by the Parish of the Church of the Risen Christ with four friends of mine.

The Rally began with Praise and Worship followed by a talk by Robert Canton. I was so happy to be able to come together with my brothers and sisters in Christ to praise and worship the Lord.

On April 27, 2007, I had consulted my doctor in France about my left arm. Whenever I moved my arms towards the back to buckle my bra, I felt a spasm in my left arm which was completely immobilized my arm for about 15-20 seconds. If I tried forcing my arms to do it again, I would feel a pull on the left side of my chest. In the mid 70's I had the same experience whenever I tried closing the cabin door of a plane. I used to be a flight attendant. In Singapore I saw the doctor again for a second opinion to this problem. He couldn't tell me anything more than what my doctor in France had told me. I then prayed to God to enlighten the doctor as to the root of this problem.

During the rally, Robert's first Word of Knowledge was this "God is healing people with frozen arms." When I heard this, I thought it was rather strange as I've never heard of this problem before. He repeated this about three times and asked those who had been healed to come up to the altar to give their testimony, in order to glorify God.

As they were giving their testimonies, I heard "in my spirit" a voice that said "you have been healed". Like a doubting Thomas, I said to myself "you must be imagining".

The conviction that I was healed became stronger. However as we were sitting so close to one another, I could not move my arm to test it. That evening when I went home I tried moving my left arm several times toward the back to test if the pain was really gone. And I tested again the next morning to make sure as I had problems to believe that God had healed me again, even when I had not asked Him for this healing. He is really a wonderful loving and merciful Father who loves His children very much. I have been very blessed as I have experienced many physical healings and most important spiritual healings, over the last twenty-five years since 1988.

The next evening I gave my testimony although I was very nervous about speaking in front of so many people. The church was packed solid; there were even people outside the church. I had promised God that I would do it to give Him glory if my healing was confirmed.

May the Name of Jesus be praised and glorified forever and ever. Be assured of my prayers for you Bob and for your Ministry, so that people all over the world may come to know the goodness and mercy of Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Saviour. We will see you again next year here in France and I may come to Belgium, Finland and Netherlands also when you speak at their Conference next year as scheduled.

Power of the "Healing and Keeping Prayer"
Simon- Singapore

I am really glad to get a copy of Bob Canton's Healing and Keeping Prayer from my auntie, Christina Ling.

During those difficult times and running out of ideas when even the doctors in the hospital couldn't give me an exact answer and solution, I turned to the Healing and Keeping Prayer praying very hard for my father Philip Ling King Kong who was admitted to the ICU. It was such a miracle that within 3 days my father showed signs of recovery and day by day he began to get stronger, better and healthier. He has since been discharged from the hospital and resting at home and on the road to recovery to his normal self.

I, the son Simon Ling wish to extend my sincere thank you to the Robert Canton Ministries for the prayer.

God bless you.

Kerygma Conference

I attended the Kerygma Conference last November 28-29 at the Araneta Coliseum and as expected it was indeed compelling and life-changing. Bro. Bo Sanchez and his fellow preachers did not disappoint. For me, there were 2 highlights from this wonderful Catholic learning event (although I enjoyed every moment of it all). The first one is the part where Bro. Bo Sanchez unearthed a black, shiny coffin on centerstage to talk about the importance of how we use our time in this world and our responsibility to serve God in this life. And the best part is the healing session led by Bro. Bob Canton where he healed the blind, the deaf and the lame. Bro. Bob even taught the audience how to pray over and heal one's self through the blood of Jesus.

I have never attended a prayer rally or a healing rally at that. You might say I am pretty skeptical about such gatherings. But I can truly attest that Bro. Bob Canton is the real deal. I was healed myself that day. And it is amazing how humble and open Bro. Bob is to God's power. His powerful disclaimer...I am only God's instrument, I am not the one who is healing everybody right now. By the blood of Jesus you will be healed of your sickness.

He prayed over us, the crowd prayed over each other. As my seat mate prayed over me that day, I felt something pop on my left side just below the breast bone. This is where I feel pain whenever I get a GERD attack. After I felt a something pop, I felt it melt and leave a painful trace going downward. Like some poison oozing out of me. It was a breathtaking experience. I will never doubt the power of prayer and healing ever again. As I saw later how the blind have seen and the lame has walked. I felt immense joy and also shame for doubting God's power. Not only was I healed, but I'm sure my personal demons have been exorcised that moment.

Bro. Obet Cabrillas, preacher, mentioned that last day how we should be careful what we ask God during the Conference. He remembers the time when he was there at the bleachers during the first year of K-Con and how we wanted so much to be one of Bro. Bo's preachers. Lo and behold he was there a few years later, speaking on the same stage where Bro. Bo preaches. And I think to myself, I could be a preacher sure. But I know my calling is not to preach. But when I saw Bro. Bob heal the attendees of K-Con, I knew God has spoken to my heart. I will have my own healing ministry one day. I was born to heal and set people free from their personal demons. This is my calling. And I recall how I have healed my parents and relatives who have been victims of witchcraft. Everything makes sense now. All my struggles with 3 witches and how they have wrecked my well-being and my family's as well definitely has a purpose. I have seen how the power of prayer and fasting has saved my life multiple times. It is a gift that has to be shared with others. And I am willing to help and save more souls.

Testimony from Kerygma Conference
Jocelyn Lorenzo- Cubao Quezon City, Philippines

I am Jocelyn Lorenzo and I was an attendee of the Kerygma Conference that was held last November 28-29 at the Araneta Coliseum in Cubao Quezon City, Philippines. I was really moved by the healings we witnessed such as the lame walking, the blind able to see again, the deaf hearing again and other wonderful healings. Praise God for that. My parents lined up for healing and they were really healed! My parents have been complaining of difficulty in walking because of arthritis and after the healing session, they were able to walk a long distance without pain. They have been walking pain free since then.

Two days ago, I had a migraine and I followed the prayer you taught us. I prayed "By the power of the most precious blood of Jesus Christ, poured over me, from the top of my head to the soles of my feet, my headache will be gone, in the name of my savior Jesus Christ, I will be healed!" I repeatedly said that and meditated on it. Lo and behold, my headache was gone in minutes, without me having to take any medication. I really thank God for that. Praise God for His miracles.

I am writing this to you to let you know that I am a living testament to God's miracles and healing. I pray that He will continue to use you as His instrument for His healing. I feel truly blessed knowing you. In my own simple way, I will continue to share my experiences with people I know to tell them that God's healing is always present, it only takes a simple faith to call upon Him in the name of Jesus.

Feeling God's Presence
Gladys Mascarenhas- Dubai, UAE

I had an experience which I could not forget during the healing session. When you laid hands on me, I went down on the floor. I saw a bright light above me, and I felt the presence of God all over me. I felt overwhelmed. The sense of God's presence remained with me for a few more days.

I felt as if God has been telling me that He loves me. I could never forget that experience ever.

Witness to Healing in Indonesia
Gregorius Sutikno- Jakarta, Indonesia

I'm really amazed with what you did in the name of Jesus for so many people in Jakarta, Indonesia. This was the first time I saw God's grace in front of my eyes. God really used you mightily in healing sickness, like God did to his people. This was the first time I saw blind people, many wheelchairs, deaf people, demonized people, deaf-mutes, and people with tumors, receiving miraculous healings. Now, I'm praying for you, Robert, so you can continue your good work. Always be blessed by God.

Receiving God's Healing
M.T.- Columbus, OH

During the teaching session, Brother Bob called out a woman who had tried to commit suicide in the room. Initially, I didn't think it was me because I had that thought of committing suicide back when I was between 7-11 yrs old. Bro Bob then pointed towards my direction. I was a little shocked so I told him that I had thought of it before. He told me to come up to the front podium. Then, 2 other women came up to the front. After he prayed over me, I rested in the Spirit. I felt like a "heaviness" was lifted from me. I didn't get up for a while. When I got up, he asked me how I felt. "Do you feel better?", I was hesitant when I answered him. I said, "I feel a little bit better." I was not convinced at that time that my emotional pain had been healed. I was quite skeptical. Then, I went back to my seat. Not too long after that I started shivering. I heard a voice in my heart saying, " I love you my daughter. Receive my healing for you. You have to believe and receive your healing with faith." I felt like I had to share what God was telling me at that time. So after I gained enough bravery, I stood up and shared what God wanted me to share. That I have to believe that I am healed in order to receive healing. Even though in my mind it seems impossible for the disappointments and disability to accept myself to go away, I have to trust that God is bigger than what we can see, hear, feel, or understand. The first step in order for Him to be able to work in our lives is to trust Him. When we trust Him fully, we can better understand His will and His grace in our lives. This is what helps us receive the healing from Him. God has abundant love, grace, forgiveness, and healing. We just need to open our heart to receive them.

KKOTTONGNAE Conference
Jiwon Nam- Seoul, South Korea

I have never imagined that I could have such an amazing, born-again experience.

I believed in God, but I didn't know about the power of the Holy Spirit or the spiritual renewal not to mention ICCRS activities. I was just ignorant about such kind of "whole new world".

I participated in the 2009 ICCRS Conference held in KKOTTONGNAE, SOUTH KOREA as a translation volunteer. I heard about the conference for the first time in my life, after seeing my diocese bulletin board by accident. I just wanted to serve people and the church, so I volunteered. And I was constantly tempted not to go for this and that.

But soon after being in the village (KKOTTONGNAE), I already started realizing that I was chosen and especially invited by God to be there, and that everyone there from participants from half a world away to other volunteers was chosen by God to be right there. That was definitely God's amazing grace. I just could feel that, know that without anyone's explanation. Most important is, I truly, deeply realized how much Jesus loves me. I realized how selfish, stupid I have been. I felt deeply grateful to God to tears. God called me to realize this. I confessed unknowingly "I love you, my Lord." And I couldn't stop sobbing.

On Day 2, I attended Mass. Right after that one of the other volunteers approached me and said, "You need to forgive someone. I can see your soul is weeping. Jesus wants you to live with joy." I was startled at her saying, but soon after I started to sob again and couldn't stop for a while. After that, surprisingly, I began to know whom I have to forgive. Since then, I began to pray the Holy Spirit to help me forgive who I need to forgive.

Her last words (Jesus wants you to live with joy) hit my heart hard. I really wanted to do what Jesus wants me to do. And he wants me to live with joy. I found it true joy comes from forgiveness and love at least in my case. I was determined to make efforts to do so and prayed unceasingly for help. Every moment and every day in KKOTTONGNAE was powerful and special.

I was scheduled to leave on Day 3 for my job. But I already felt something's going on and the Spirit's moving within me though I cannot describe it clearly. I desperately wanted to get more. So I came back on Day 5, when I met Brother Bob Canton at the airport to usher him to KKOTTONGNAE. Although I didn't even realize who he was, I could see he was living with joy. I witnessed him lead a healing session the next day. And I experienced one more surprise.

When people were praying using the gift of tongues, I felt mysterious warmth around my body .Since then, I experienced that kind often when in the same situation. And right before that session, I was in a queue to have Bob lay his hands on my head. At that moment, I felt something hot falling on the head and passing down through the heart and I fell backwards.

Afterwards, I became confident of myself because I knew Jesus loves me so much. I felt like I got a super power. I felt like I could do anything as Jesus is with me. I felt a true happiness deep in my heart and felt like a sense of liberation. I had never had those feelings before in my life. Now I want to share these experiences with brothers and sisters. I want those still in darkness to know how much Jesus loves us. Jesus is the only savior.

Witness to Healing in Singapore

I just attended a wonderful healing rally by Robert Canton over the last two nights at the Church of the Risen Christ. This is the first time I am attending something to do with healing at a church. The energy, when we walked in, was really strong, and there was an air of expectancy all around.

The first day, we were a little late, but still, the ushers greeted us happily, and we managed to get a pretty good seat near the band. They had started off with some praise and worship songs, and I know that he wasn't used to this sort of atmosphere in a church, and honestly, I was also surprised as I usually only saw the more sombre side of the catholic church when I followed him for mass. After a while he was alright though, and he started tearing. I did too, but I guess I do not like to show it in public, so I kind of held it back. But it was kind of uncontrollable, perhaps it was the music, but the presence of the Holy Spirit was definitely there.

So after the songs, Bob appeared on stage, and talked a bit about himself, and got some people who had experienced healings to give testimonies. It sounds amazing, but what we would see later on would be more amazing. Bob emphasised though, that he is not the healer, that the healings came from God, and he is just there to pray for the person.

The healings started, and many miracles happened. Many people had come in wheelchairs, and amazingly, all of them got out of it, even one who was paralysed. She was still having problems with her speech, but she got out of her chair. Most of them walked quite a distance, amazing considering they had not gotten out of their wheelchairs for years. And there was this little boy, I think he was the inspiration for the day. He was so happy to be out of his wheelchair without any help, he walked round and round the church and praised the Lord

The second day, he brought his mum, and more miracles happened, but what was close to my heart for me, was that he and his mum went up, and experienced the healing themselves. I guess this sort of thing, you truly feel touched when someone close, or yourself actually experience it. In fact, I think many people went back and told others, because the second day, we were early, but it was already packed and we almost couldn't find a seat.

God is just awesome! Last night his mum was also with us, and she asked for healing for her sister who is undergoing chemo. And usually, on wednesdays, she would feel a lot of pain from the medication and all. But today, amazingly, she felt NO PAIN AT ALL. Seriously, this is just wonderful! We all believe that she has been healed.

And today, my own little healing from Jesus, I'd kicked and bent my ankle at a funny angle and I had felt like the big toe and some of the areas around it were a little dislocated. Ok, maybe not that serious, but it felt out of place, and was very painful, and I was going out. But I just went out anyway and tried to walk, but putting weight on the foot each time, it would feel like something was going to snap. So I prayed, that Jesus would heal me. Then I went along and kind of forgot about the pain, and suddenly realised as I was walking, that there was no more pain. I moved my feet all around, put weight on it, and it was all ok! And now a few hours later, I am still ok.
