My company offers free medical check-up services for its employees and their family members every May.
In May 2017, my eyesight was 0.9/0.5 and I was diagnosed with extreme nearsightedness and early stages of farsightedness caused by old age. I like to read and do my job using a computer, which often caused my eyes to tire. My eyes were often bloodshot and I lost focus when I tried to read. Only after I consciously tried to focus did letters become clearer.
In August 2017, I was again diagnosed with farsightedness due to old age. I got acupuncture to prevent it from developing but there was no improvement and my eyesight was failing more and more. It caused me to have difficulty driving at night. In February 2018, I ended up buying glasses. It was my first time in my life to wear them.
Afterwards, I earnestly received Senior Pastor Dr. Jaerock Lee’s prayer for the sick with my hands on my eyes during every worship service and every Daniel Prayer Meeting. From early April, I repented from my heart that I had been too slow in renewing myself although I had led a believing life for a long time. I fasted and prayed for the church as well.
In May 2018, I had the regular medical check-up again after a year. My eyesight turned out to be 1.5/1.5 without the myopia.
Now my eyes do not feel tired even after I read for many hours. I am so thankful. I just prayed for the kingdom and righteousness of God with love for the church. God accepted this small deed and my fragrance of heart with joy and gave me the answer.
My family members are witnesses of the power of the living God. My son Jaemin used to be too short and thin. It was my family’s prayer title. He was 18kg when he was in the first grade. Even when he was a fourth grader, he heard that he looked like a preschooler. We received Senior Pastor’s prayer every year, and now he is an 11th grader and 171cm tall. When people saw him grow that tall, they were surprised and congratulated us.
My wife Deaconess Bongsuk Ko suffered from otolithiasis (inner ear calcium particles that fall and move from their position, which causes vertigo). She had many difficulties and couldn’t eat well. But after she received the prayer of the handkerchief on which Senior Pastor had prayed (Acts 19:11-12), she was healed.
I give all thanks and glory to God for I have been guided to the church where I can meet and experience the living God and lead a happy life.
