Impact Story

Recently a devoted church member tested positive for Covid-19 and was admitted into the ICU. After 4 days she went into coma. Once aware, Anita and staff closed the office and shut down online services to fast and pray for 7 days/nights for her. After the 7th day, Anita received a call from the member’s family informing her that doctors advised them to establish plans due no signs of recovery. However, Anita and staff continued to pray. After being hospitalized for over nine weeks, to God’s glory, she awoke out of coma and was able to text Anita to inform her that she was okay. This is a testament to prayers and God’s glory.
