This is Katherine, and here is her testimony:
Dear Dr Gary,
I wanted to personally give you an update on my situation since you were at CI in Florida just over a week ago.
I developed severe allergies and about a year ago it got so back that I could not eat any of the following foods:
*Corn (and anything with corn, corn syrup, etc)
To name a few.
I was also not allowed to be outside because I had allergies to:
And numerous other outdoor things.
Having been to the ER so many times because my throat closes even from just the smell of some of these things.
I carried around a breathing machine (so I do not have to wait to get to ER), 4 inhalers (1 of them is very 4 hours, the other is the strongest possible and I took that twice a day and the other 2 are if needed).
I also carry a self-injecting Epipen which I have to use at the earliest sign of an allergic reaction.
It has really not been easy.
It was at a point in April 2007 that I now have an air purifier in my office and my bedroom to help me breathe.
I also could not sign much during worship or talk much as I would get so out of breath.
The staff at CI have been praying for me regularly for about a year because it is just getting worse.
In April they also told me that I only had 1/3 lung capacity and they do not understand why the drastic change in 2 years.
I was also recommended for some new asthma injections, which would have cost me of $500 per injection to try and help me.
On another note...
Since being on staff at CI starting in 1998 I have been through various medical things and just did not feel I could break free of it.
Last year I was also passing out a lot and they recommended no driving until they diagnosed the problem.
They diagnosed low blood pressure.
Well that Friday night you were here at CI, I was in the Video Room working on the streaming of the event and the Lord spoke to me that it was my time for healing.
I agreed but did not know how as I was the only one streaming the event.
You kept calling out a breathing condition and when you said that you knew this person was here I really felt it was me.
Well as you prayed for the allergies, asthma, blood condition and you saw a spirit of health coming upon me ... life has not been the same again!!!!!
I still have so much energy.
I do not get out of breath during worship or conversations.
I have NOT taken any allergy medication or any of my inhalers or breathing treatments since then. I also have not taken my low blood pressure medication.
It is AMAZING!!!!!!
I have eaten pizza, shrimp, garlic bread, had a soda and swept the leaves in my yard and had NO problems.
Every time we meet as a church or staff here I am able to testify on the radical changes that have taken place.
I have had many comments from leadership that I look different and that even my skin looks better.
I thank the Lord for your obedience not to stop calling for that person ...
I know God can touch anyone where they are at ... even if they are working during a service.
Life is very different now that I do not have to be concerned about ingredients and that I can breathe!
I can also start traveling and ministering again -- have not been able to do too much of that since all this got so bad a year ago.
I am Licensed with CI and have traveled internationally with our Bishop and Mom.
