Liberty from Illness and Torment
My name is Tomásia. Since I was small, I had suffered from various illnesses. My parents told me that I was born with some of those illnesses, and the witch doctor said that the illnesses were caused by bad spirits.
One day, my sister fell ill, and my parents brought witch doctors to the house to have a ceremony for her. Then they gave me clothes that the witch doctors use. These would make me a witch doctor too. When I decided to go into the church, I spent a lot of time there but still had things of the witch doctor with me. The bad spirits continued to bother me, and I saw that hiding these things was not helping my behaviour. So one day, I decided to inform the pastor of the church that I had these things at home.
On the day that I was baptised, I handed all these things over and burned them. From that day until now, I am well. I do not suffer from disturbances from evil spirits anymore, and being sick hour after hour has also stopped.
Praise God! I thank God for this wonderful healing.
Eugene and Tina would describe themselves as “gradual” Christians. The Lord took more than 25 years to move them from “dead religion” to being full-on, full-time missionaries. By that time, both their daughters, Chantelle and Tanya were married and serving the Lord in their own lives. Their call was dramatic and clear. The Lord used His Word, (especially Isaiah 58, “Feed the hungry,…clothe the naked,…pour out your lives in a sun-scorched land”…) followed by prophetic individuals speaking in confirmation that left them without doubt. Their testimony includes suffering bodily harm for His sake. Eugene and Tina returned to the field after surgery to continue preaching the Gospel. They are currently involved in a new church-plant and discipleship of believers.
