About three months ago a woman came to the church. She had just gone through a traumatic experience. This woman and her husband had had a terrible fight and her husband stabbed her in the throat, cutting her vocal chords and leaving her mute. When she was in the hospital, she says that she saw a man come into her room and tell her, "Something good is about to happen to you." She went through an operation to try and restore her voice but it was unsuccessful. A friend of hers took her to the church and Stephen and Marcela began to talk to her and counsel her. Marcela especially talked to her about forgiveness and gradually the woman accepted Christ was able to forgive her husband for what he had done to her. At this time her husband tried to commit suicide but was unsuccessful. He was admitted to hospital and his wife came and looked after him, despite of what he had done to her and despite the fact that she couldn't speak. After this the woman prayed and asked God to give her back her voice so she could worship him. The next day she woke up and was able to talk; God had given her a brand new voice. Last Sunday she brought her husband to church and he accepted Jesus into his life.

Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. James 5:16
