Praise the Lord !
As you know our 8 ½ year old son Aaditya was diagnosed with Niemann Pick Type C -1; a rare and progressive cholesterol storage disorder two years ago. In the months that followed Aaditya gradually lost the ability to walk , then to stand, to speak and finally even to eat. He is now fed through a G tube into his stomach.
One of the most frightening symptoms of this disease are the terrible seizures that he got multiple times a day. My wife , our housekeeper Sumathi or I always ensured that one of us were in the room with him at any point of time so that we could put our finger into his mouth and prevent him from biting off his tongue when he had a seizure.
In the months that preceded our visit to Potta last week we had tried every possible medical solution including stem cell transfusions but nothing seemed to help.
Gradually we came to the conclusion that Aaditya was in the hands of God and only he could make him well. Our desire to get closer to Jesus led us to the Bread of Life prayer group in Bangalore which we have been attending every Thursday evening for the last few months. Brother Cherian and others in the prayer group advised us to make a trip to The Divine Retreat Centre and finally we joined the retreat held last week.
My wife was cured of the pain she had in her shoulder and knee and I experienced ‘healing in sickness’ as the retreat progressed. By the third day I had stopped asking for any favors but instead concentrated on Praising the Lord and deepening my understanding of the scriptures through the sessions in which the word of God were preached.
All through the retreat many people came up to speak to us and tell us that they were praying for Aaditya and that he was a blessing for us.
During the healing session Fr. Michael had announced that ‘someone is being cured of seizures’ but as Aadi cant speak at present we did not know who it was and so did not claim the healing. It is now 3 days since we returned from the Divine Retreat Centre and we are overjoyed to share that for the last few days Aadiya’s seizures have completely stopped.
Tasneem Sara says that during the anointing of the holy spirit adoration the Sprit told her that ‘ he is my son whom I have already healed ; he has come so that you may be healed , so you be healed’ .
Thank you Jesus , Praise the Lord !
