    Growing up in North Carolina, I never had any allergy or sinus issues. However, after moving to Savannah I began having a lot of “colds”. I would get really congested, and my sinuses would just ache with pressure. I couldn’t figure out what was going on because I had always been extremely healthy.

    Finally, my doctor in Savannah told me that the “colds” were sinus infections. To anyone that has allergies and gets sinus infections, they are miserable. The congestion is thick, the headaches intense and the pressure strong. Par for the course concerning the medical field, he prescribed me Claritin and of course, an antibotic. He told me I was allergic to “something”, and I could get tested. He explained the process, and also told me that I could get a series of allergy shots. I seriously considered it but in the end the 1/3rd chance I had of them actually improving my allergies just wasn’t worth the hassle I’d go through.

    So began 10 years of numerous prescriptions, infections, antibiotics, doctor visits, over-the-counter allergy meds and days filled with a “mental fog” due to the allergies.

    Eventually I was diagnosed with a SEVERE allergy to dust mites. There are actually TWO different species. I think everyone understands that dust mites aren’t seasonal, they are EVERYWHERE. It’s very hard to avoid them, and controlling them is a major headache, not to mention expensive. Needless to say, I just “dealt” with it.

    I asked my ENT doctor how I could “cure” the allergies. He matter-of-factly looked at me and stated, “You can’t. It’s something you’ll ALWAYS deal with. You can only control the allergy.” Bummer, I thought. That kinda sucks!

    So my journey to deal with my allergies started, and I eventually found some natural ways to deal with them but I was always on the verge of another sinus infection. I got to be so sensitive to perfumes, candles, deodorizers, smoke and many, many other things. I was getting so many infections I stopped taking antibiotics because I was afraid I’d build up a resistance, and they’d never work again, not to mention the side effects.

    Almost four years ago, I started praying that God would bless me with total healing of my allergies. I knew that only He could release me from them. Over time, I got better at dealing with the allergies and sinus issues, but there was no healing.

    That was before I went to Brazil this July. While in July, two things happened that changed all of that. First, God sent Audrey with us to Fortaleza and Ubauna. Audrey was “scouting” out Ubauna to see if God was leading him to be our first full-time pastor and missionary for Gospel for Brazil. During our first worship service in Ubauna, we realized that God had anointed Audrey with the gift of Healing. How did we find this out? Simple…two people were healed the first night by Jesus Christ, through Audrey’s prayers.

    Once I realized this, I had a sense that one of the reasons God had allowed me to go on this trip back to Brazil was for my healing that I’d prayed for over the past four years.

    Second thing that happened? I got a sinus infection, and started popping pills like they were Skittles. The odd thing was that I didn’t feel bad. I actually felt good but I had the typical yellow-green congestion, sinus pressure and sore throat (very sore one day). About three nights into our Ubauna leg, Audrey approached me in the back room of the elementary building where the services were held, with Joe, and asked me if he could pray for me (Joe told me later that Audrey approached him and told him that he couldn’t take watching me “pop” so many pills and wanted to pray for me). I told him I’d love for him to pray for me. He then asked me if I believed I could be healed. I told him I believed.

    Right after that, my mind took a quick “mental timeout” to analyze the situation. It’s what I do, I analyze things to a fault sometimes. I thought to myself, “I absolutely believe and know that God,through the Holy Spirit of Christ heals. The Bible stated it and I had SEEN healings taking place over the previous two nights.” That’s a good thought but then I started to think, “Who am I that Jesus Christ would heal me. I don’t deserve this blessing. It’s got to be for others, not me.” Looking back, I know that satan knew Christ was getting ready to work a miracle in my life. He doesn’t want that to happen, you know?

    Coming back from my “mental timeout”, Audrey placed his hands on my nasal/sinus cavity and prayed. At the end, he told me to “Thank Jesus”. I did.

    IMMEDIATELY, I was able to breathe freely. Honestly, I hadn’t breathed that well in years. He asked me how I felt. I told him I was completely “open” and that I hadn’t breathed that deeply in years.

    For the rest of the week, I blew my nose so much, and got so much phlegm out of my sinuses it was unbelievable. God was cleansing my body. Physically I felt great and Christy and some others in the group couldn’t believe how good I looked. Prior to my healing, my face always had a “swollen” look and my eyes always looked “sleepy” but after that the “swollen and sleepy” look was gone. I’ve since had several people comment about how different my eyes look.

    Since that night in Brazil, I have not touched a sinus prescription. I was taking Singulair daily and had gotten to the point where I was taking Zyrtec-D almost daily. I feel great, sleep better and have noticed that I’m not affected by the things that “sent me over the edge” before.

    Granted, I still have a severe septum deviation, and still get some congestion but it’s NOTHING like before, and I know that God is going to heal that as well. All in His time, all in His time.

    I wish I could truly relate how it feels to be healed by the Holy Spirit of Christ. It’s such an incredible blessing that I sometimes just can’t fathom. But God clearly states that if you ask and you truly believe, that Christ will touch you with His healing hand. For God, it’s nothing. It’s easy. It’s just Him showing us His love and His Mercy and His Grace.

    Jesus Christ is who He says He is: The one true God, the Lord and Savior of our lives, the Redemer, the Counselor, Allah, the Forgiver….The Healer!

    Thank you Jesus, Thank you Jesus, Thank you Jesus for my total healing from my allergies!!!

    God had definitely heard my prayers, and He had every intention of healing me but in His time. His time came in July in a little village in Northeast Brazil.

    Wow…just wow. That’s absolutely amazing. Actually it is. You are truly a blessed person to have received such a miracle like that. It sounds like you used to have the same exact allergies that I now have…and they suck to say the least. So far God hasn’t answered that prayer for me…but he’s answered other more important prayers.

    Maybe in fifty years or so we’ll be praying to your friend who will then be a saint!

    Everytime I realize I’ve been healed, it still humbles me. Every night that comes and goes without having to take my allergy prescriptions, I’m in awe of Jesus’ healing Mercy.

    Christ heals His people that believe in His promise of healing. Be patient and continue praying.

    A friend of mine that works with me told me about the healing of her unborn grandson. Her daughter had a routine ultrasound in early December and the doctor notified the parents that he saw a major issue with his kidneys. He told them that he was uncertain about the exact diagnosis but it appeared to be Polycystic Kidney Disease.

    The parents and my friend started a prayer chain lifting the unborn son to Christ for His total healing.

    The parents went back the next day to get more tests run and when they did the ultrasound there was NO SIGNS OF ANY ISSUES. THE MASS/ES WERE COMPLETELY GONE AND THE DOCTOR TOLD THEM HIS KIDNEYS WERE FUNCTIONING PERFECTLY!

    Thank you Jesus, Thank you Jesus! Wow! Do we worship an awesome God or what????

    He was born last week, perfectly healthy.

    What an awesome testomony! Thank you so much for putting this on your website. I also have been diagnozed with SEVERE dust mite allergies around a year ago and am praying God for healing in spite of what doctors have been saying about my case. EVERY DAY I struggle to breathe and it’s very hard to explain… You almost have to live it to understand it. At times, I just feel like giving up and I really needed to read something like your testimony. God has an awesome healing power and I know that I know that one day I will be completely healed and breathe clearly again. God bless you and thank you again for sharing God’s miracle with the world…

    Thank you StillWaiting! If our site can affect one person positively or give encouragment in Christ’s name to someone, then that makes us happy.

    Continue to pray for healing and have faith that Christ will heal you. He will hear you and He will deliver you from this affliction. He promises healing to His people. So don’t lose heart nor faith. Maybe this is God’s way of strengthening your faith and building your spiritual maturity in a particular manner or area. Either way, He knows your desire and He will not leave you nor turn His ear and His heart from you.

    When you are delivered, what a testimony you will give to honor God. I can’t wait to hear from you when that day comes.

  7. I have been on antidepressants since October of 1998 when I was 15 years old. I grew up in church, but quit going when I moved out of my dad’s house when I was 18. I married my husband at 19 and soon after was diagnosed with Endometriosis and had to go through menopause at the age of 21. Finally after some unfortunate circumstances happened, I began to understand everything I had been taught all my life about Christ. It went from my head, to my heart. In September of 2005, I left my new home on the East Coast for my old home on the West Coast for a month and a half. I began going to church again in this small town I was staying. I attended a weekly Bible Study where I had the chance to tell my story about how I came back to church. I was then told that I could be free of everything including medications. I didn’t really believe them considering the recent events which had put me on many more meds that I believed were much needed at that point. I was a little scared, nervous, & skeptical about it, but I renounced Satan and all the things I had done in the past that could allow Satan to have a hold on me. I began calling everyone I had ever hurt and all those that had hurt me and I asked for forgiveness and forgave others. It was time for me to go home to the other side of the United States so we exchanged phone numbers and email addresses and I went home.

    I then began attending a very large church, but my depression was getting the best of me and I quit going to church again. I lost my job and began getting sick with several different problems, including allergies. They got so bad in January 2007 that I was tested for everything and was told my biggest allergens were dust mites and mold. I was also told I could have shots, but at this point they couldn’t figure out what was causing me to have hives on an every day basis and they weren’t comfortable giving me these shots considering my history with anaphylactic shock. My husband and I went back home to the West Coast in June 2007 to see if it would make me any better. That was the first time I went in to anaphylactic shock. I was literally allergic to myself and after being hospitalized, I found out that I had high blood pressure and was diabetic because of being on such a high dose of steroids for such a long period of time. I was put on insulin and went on my way. Even on all those medications, I continued to get hives and occasionally go into shock. I was at the hospital several times a month and gained even more weight than when I went through menopause.
    When we came home from Oregon the end of June 2007, my husband, an unbeliever, stated that maybe we should try to find a church. So we began attending Lifepoint Church and met some pretty awesome people. My hives began to subside a bit, but after just over a month, we both quit attending. My hives immediately returned after only being gone for about a month. It was laying heavy on my heart to go back and I finally did. I got plugged in to a lifegroup and had a lot of people praying for me. I began to learn to obey God. I felt as though I was supposed to get a job, but was scared because I looked like a person with leprocy with my eyes swollen shut and hives covering all parts of my body. I found a job and quit the next day. I got a phone call to go to another job and made it about 4 weeks and called it quits. My hives were not allowing me to function. On a Friday, I decided I had better call the bank where my student loans were and get a deferrment. I cried and cried the whole time on the phone because I was so embarrassed and scared that I would never be able to work to pay these off. After hanging up, I got on my knees in front of the couch and just bawled to God. I wasn’t even done praying and the phone rang. It was a temporary agency who had a job for me that would turn permanent and I had all the qualifications they needed except I had no experience. They wanted me to start the following Monday. Less than a month into this job I called it quits. I was training myself and got scared. I had this heavy feeling on my heart the moment I turned in that notice. The day before I was supposed to quit, for some reason I told the executive director I would stay and continue trying. The next day was the last day I had hives. Ever since then when God tells me to do something, I do it! Even if I don’t want to, I do it. I quit smoking cold turkey on New Years Eve. I had no idea why I quit because I enjoyed it, but I am free of nicotine and don’t even care for it. The urge and the want is just gone. Shortly after I quit smoking, God told me to go to Ubauna. At this point there was no way I was going to be able to pay for this trip. With obedience to God, my trip is paid for and I’ve been off of all medications since about November of 2007 when my hives suddenly disappeared. No doctors to this day can tell me why I had these sudden allergies, but those are gone as well as my depression! The word IMMEDIATELY is explained in the Bible in many different stories. There are reasons for everything. God had a plan for me whether I wanted to obey or not! Even though I did not know His plans, I trusted him to carry me through it all… Just like the footprints in the sand. I know He’s not done with me yet so I will continue to follow Him to Eternity!
    THANK YOU JESUS!

    Praise Jesus! Thank you for sharing…what an inspiration! That’s a great testimony to the awesome power of Christ’s Mercy, Grace and Healing. For Him, it is but a simple gesture of His love for you that means so much, and it makes all the difference. Many times, I believe, it’s not the physical but the spirit that needs to be healed. Heal the spirit and the physical will come back into balance.

    Although I’m sure it was a daily challenge to persevere through those dark times, look where you are in your walk with God. God sees our spirits and He knows the things that need to be washed away in order for us to grow and be used by Him.

    I’m so excited about meeting you and spending time with everyone in Brazil. It’s going to be an awesome, Spirit-led adventure, and it will change your life. It’s been four yrs. since our first trip and it’s still impacting us, and we’re still receiving blessings. The Ubauna Jesus Caravan is getting fueled up!!!!
