Medical student son healed of nervous breakdown - Nirmala Menezes, Mumbai

I am married for twenty nine years and I have a son who is in his final year of MS (Surgery) at KCM Hospital in Mumbai. I work for a Bank. I attended a retreat at the Kalyan Retreat Centre and go there regularly for healing services. This is my first retreat at Divine Retreat Centre, Kerala. In 2015 when my son was in the first year of MS (Surgery), he had a nervous breakdown on account of pressures at the hospital and ragging. After a few days of being at home he said he would go back to the hospital. Soon after that we checked at the hospital but he had not reached. We were afraid to go to the police station because this would hamper his career. We were desperate and did not know what to do. On the third day I attended the healing service at Kalyan. I realised that on account of my promotions and stay out of station I had gone away from God. After the healing service I was filled with the Holy Spirit. I drew close to Jesus and felt His voice telling me to relax. I returned home and within fifteen minutes the telephone rang and there was my son asking “Can I come home mummy?”After three days of wandering aimlessly right at the time of healing service twice he happened to see a bus going to Andheri right in front of him. At the next healing service the following Saturday I was again directed towards the right person to be contacted for treatment. Within a few days he was completely cured. All psychiatric tests taken by the hospital revealed that he was completely fit and could resume studies. Praise the Lord. “
