I want to share the healing of Adrie-Anne Gamble Saskatchewan, Canada. It is well-documented with ultrasounds.

Adrie-Anne had been experiencing lower pelvic pain for several months and finally realized she needed to go to the doctor. Three months later she was in the hospital for surgery, but when the surgeon opened her up, he discovered a miracle had taken place…

Adrie-Anne writes:

I had been having pain in my lower pelvic area for over a year and a half  and it was getting worse. I made an appointment to see my family doctor who then booked me for an ultrasound in April 2014.

The next month, I received a call from my doctor’s office asking me to come in immediately to review my results. My family doctor showed me my ultrasound and explained I had growths that looked to be fibroids and polyps. My uterus was also too large and was tilted or misaligned.

She referred me to a surgeon to rule out cancer.

I left the doctor’s office, got into my car and cried. I felt hopeless and scared. The only thing that came to my mind was to pray.

I shared the news with friends, family, and two prayer groups. I sought prayer for healing and for the fear and anxiety that surfaced regularly. Even though I had received prayer, I still experienced anxiety, and thoughts like “what if I am not healed.”

I needed prayer to just help me deal with the fear.

The surgeon’s appointment was the last week in May and he booked me for surgery on July 11, 2014.

I arrived for surgery at the hospital on the morning of July 11. When I woke up after surgery, I asked the nurse what they had found and what they removed.

The nurse said “there was nothing to remove.” I asked her again. She repeated there was nothing to remove and that sometimes they just can’t explain things.

The surgeon came by later and told me the surgery went well and he said that when he went in he could find nothing to remove — despite what the ultra sound showed. Within the hour, I was discharged and sent home.

Thought I was given morphine and another anti-inflammatory to deal with the pain, I experienced no pain after surgery, and didn’t require any of the medication.

That same day, I booked an appointment with my family doctor who I saw on July 14. I asked her to review my ultrasound and reasons for referral to the surgeon. She reviewed my results and explained that there were growths to be removed and that they needed to rule out cancer.

I told her that I had just had surgery July 11 and the surgeon found no growths and that there was nothing wrong with my uterus.

I shared with her that I had received prayer for healing and that I believe God healed me.

She was very happy, gave me a hug and she said she believed God healed me and she thanked me for coming in to share that news with her.

August 14 was my follow up visit with the surgeon. He said that the biopsy of my uterus came back healthy. There were no growths and there was no endometriosis or cancer.

He then started to review the original referral and ultrasound. While he was reviewing my file, I shared how I had received prayer for healing and I believed God healed me. He looked at my ultrasound again and said “prayer is good.”

He said nothing else, but added if I had any problems in the future to please let him know.

Jesus promises His disciples will perform miracles

In John 14:12, Jesus said because He was going to the Father, those who believed in in Him would be able to perform greater miracles than even Jesus had done. This is what happened with Adrie-Anne. Her miracle happened because people prayed and believed.

“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father.” (John 14:12 NASV)

But if we read this verse closely, it wasn’t enough to just believe in Jesus, we must also believe in His miracles of healing in order to perform miracles ourselves. There are Christians who believe in Jesus, they may even believe Jesus was a great teacher, but because they are not convinced Jesus performed miracles while on earth, these people are powerless.

In order to bring healing to the world today, we must believe the miracles recorded in the Gospels.
