My Ears Had Heard of you But Now my Eyes Have Seen you. (Job. 42:5)

A sister

Twenty years ago, the young and energetic Man-ping learned about God and realized that He was the source of love after experiencing a devastating break up with her boyfriend. Since then, God has been leading her on a journey of faith and blessings, though seemingly the path looked somewhat rugged. In 1996, after becoming a believer for 10 years, she was diagnosed with cancer and was still unmarried at the time. She was very down and she knelt before God and prayed. God's response was: "It is not about us that we can shoulder anything, the fact that we can take upon ourselves anything is a result of God." She knew that she was not facing this alone, but God was present with her. She prayed and asked the Lord to fill her with joy and peace during this process. She also asked the Lord if she could avoid any physical pain on her body. In the end, not only she felt painless after the operation, she did not even have to endure any electrotherapy or chemotherapy at all.

God is truly the source of love. After Man-ping was healed, God gave her a great husband. She also bore a daughter later on. However, during a regular body check-up in 2002, she discovered that her cancer had relapsed and had spread to her liver and pelvis. What was most difficult for her was letting go of her two-year-old daughter. But God's word reminded her: "Sons are a heritage from the Lord". (Ps. 127:3). She was only the steward of her daughter, then she and her husband decided to commit their daughter to God.

Man-ping was unable to bear the pain from chemotherapy. She pleaded the Lord to open up a new pathway of healing. As the chemotherapy had no effects on her body, God enabled her to remember the Chinese medicine treatment. Two months later, the weakness in her body caused by chemotherapy had clearly improved, but the doctor said she had only a little more than a year to live. At this she cried the entire night and realized that her life was in the hands of God. She pleaded the Lord to enable her to wisely utilize her remaining days, to spend more time with family and to do more visitations. The doctor spent much time examining her body, and asked if she had continued with chemotherapy or electrotherapy. In the end the doctor said that her liver tumor had disappeared. Hallelujah! Praise the Lord for enabling Man-ping to experience Jehovah Rapha, the God who heals. These two experiences allowed Man-ping to learn about trusting in God and the importance of prayer. For it is written in the Scripture: "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." (Php. 4:6-7)

Not only did God reveal Himself to be a God who healed Man-ping's body, He is also the Lord who gives life. In 2005, Man-ping became pregnant again. Both the Chinese and the western doctors confirmed the impossibility of her to become pregnant, they opposed her to continue her pregnancy. However, she and her husband deeply believe that this is a gift from the Heavenly Father. They also used the "This is a Gift from God" prayer handbook that covers the entire stage of pregnancy, and they prayed for the fetus and Man-ping. For they truly believe that there are only blessings and not curses in God. As a result, a son was born in 2006. What a cute and healthy infant it was! May all glory and praise belong to God.
