Living the Dream

"Melanoma Healed in Maximum Security Prison

"Lloyd (inmate) was diagnosed with cancer and was sent numerous times to the prison hospital in Galveston, Texas to see the oncologist. He had severe Melanoma on his chest and down the right side of his torso from his underarm to his waist. One surgery had not gotten everything and doctors were adamant that he needed to start immediate chemotherapy and radiation treatment.

But God spoke something exactly the opposite in the depths of his heart. Suddenly, his only desire was to get back “home” to the faith-based unit in a maximum security prison in time for a self-imposed weekend lock-in - they are locked into the prison chapel where they fast/pray/worship for the weekend. Lloyd got back in time and during worship he saw a vision of the heavens opening and his body began to feel electricity all over. When it was over, he was healed. Doctors confirmed he had no mores traces of cancer!!

Eighteen months later, he is still healed and had never endured a drop of chemo drugs!! God is awesome! But what’s even more amazing is that not only was he healed, but God empowered his hands to heal others. And he prays for the sick every chance he gets. Just let him find someone with cancer! He goes after that evil with vengeance of a man who knows what God will do…. anywhere! via Charlie Owens,TX (Nov, 2013)"
