I suffered from sciatica as a result of an industrial injury for about three years. During that period I could hardly walk or bend over. In my desperation, I tried all kinds of medical and alternative treatments but none could help alleviate the pain and suffering I went through. It was an all time low period in my life.

Early in February 2003 my mother-in-law told me about an article that had appeared in the local newspaper, the Halifax Courier. It reported that a place called Healing Rooms had just opened in Halifax. She advised me to visit the Healing Rooms of Halifax, which I did the following Wednesday.
I was met by a caring and sympathetic staff and I also felt a sense of peace around me. As the prayer team prayed for me I felt a warm glow all over me and sensed the healing hand of the Lord touch me.
That was the beginning of my life changing experience in Jesus.
I went home and that evening as I sat in my armchair after tea, I sensed the voice of the Lord urging me to get up, bend and touch my toes - something I could not do for almost three years. This happened for the second time. I obeyed and to my amazement I could bend over and also walk without any pain! My wife was a witness to my healing and could hardly believe what she saw that evening.

I had never prayed before but that night I poured out my heart to the Lord in prayer and thanked Him for healing me. I also had my best sleep that night. I received the Lord as my Saviour after that life changing experience. I know He has better plans for my life and I give Him all the glory for healing me.
Because of my condition, my doctor had made an appointment for me to see a specialist at the local hospital. The appointment was not for a number of months and my healing had taken place during the waiting period. It was Thursday 24th July 2003, the day of my appointment with the specialist.

He gave me a thorough examination and tested my movement. His conclusion was very straightforward; there was nothing wrong with my back whatsoever. I was so pleased because what I already knew had been confirmed by someone who had not known what had happened to me.
My wife has also made Jesus her Lord and Saviour. We have attended a recent Alpha course to learn more about our new Christian life and were baptised on Sunday 6th July 2003. Recently, my mother-in-law also made Jesus her Lord and Saviour. My life has dramatically changed for the good since being healed.
