My name is Shirley, from the Port Moresby Assembly in PNG. I was brought up by my
parents in one of the mainline churches from when I was born. When I grew up I went
to school and after I finish college I got a job.
The whole world started crashing down on me
Since then I started seeing things differently as if the whole world started crashing
down on me. I got married, things went from bad to worse but I thank God that there
was a seed that was planted in my heart which always gave me the strength.
I always believe God can put my life together again
After all I decided to start going back to same church because I always believe that
there is a God who can put my life back together. I made a commitment which made
a difference in life. Through all these experiences I had in life even though I made
a full commitment to the church to please God those problems were still coming back
to me and I always felt that emptiness in me to make me give up.
I knew I was missing something in my life
But that did not stop me to continue to worship God. I knew that I was missing something
in my life, a true relationship with this God the Father. Not until the day I lost
my dad on the 31st of May 2008 which was really tragic for me as he was always a
true and loving father to me during bad times. I look up to him for encouragement
and he will give me words that will bring peace and forgiveness which will just make
the situation as it never happen. I cried my heart out for him that I will really
miss him and I will not have anybody like him to turn to with my problems anymore.
I lost my dad which was really tragic for me
When I was crying for my dad, these words came out of my mouth that I am here crying
over my physical dad which I am going to miss from now on but I know that I have
a Father up there who is going to take care of me forever but I really need that
I had a heart problem and started having
frequent visits to hospital
Anyway I was very sick in October 2008, I had a heart problem which never occurred
to me before and I thought that in my life I will not have such problems. I started
having frequent visits to the hospital and I was given about 3 different types of
medicines to take together every day as one dose which was just too much for me.
I cried day and night... shortage of breath pounded me
I cried day and night as I was afraid of death as shortage of breath pounded me and
I couldn’t walk up the steps of our house. Movement was hence restricted & the constant
fear of death continued to haunt me. I cried and told God that I had nobody to turn
to, but HIM who only knows the perfect plans for me.
I cried and told God that I had nobody to turn to but HIM
Then one day my husband not yet a spirit filled that time, was witnessed to by one
of the brothers form the Revival Centres International at his place of work, that
he attends a church that through the power of the Holy Spirit they pray for the sick
and are healed.
My husband encouraged me to allow this church
to come and pray for me
My husband encouraged me to allow this church to come and pray for me which they
did but before they came I already made up my mind that I have found my salvation.
After they prayed for me I decided to be baptized in fully immersion
and got filled with the Holy Spirit and I spoke in tongues.
No more fear of death, no more heart problems,
& I can do all normal things in life
After that I have experienced so many miracles in my life which has given me that
assurance by God that “HE WILL NEVER LEAVE ME NOR FORSAKE ME”, no more fear of death,
no more heart problems & I can do all the normal things
in life, happy & enjoying my salvation. GOD BLESS.
