Wife is Healed of Osteoathritis - Dr. Savio Sequeira Vaz, Goa

I am originally from Mangalore settled in business in Goa. I have three sons. I visited Divine Retreat Centre for the first time in 1990. At that time we sa w a goods train carrying fuel caught fire and Divine was under threat as at that time most of the Centre’s roofs was covered with palm leaves. But God saved every single building in Divine! Witnessing this miracle I felt that this Retreat Centre is working on God’s power and therefore many are receiving healings by the power of God and this has strengthened my faith.

In the year 1989 I was in a very severe financial crisis – heavy debts. I was also suffering from backache. I do not remember what I did for my backache as I was very much worried about my financial crisis. A priest who wanted to help me advised me to go to Divine; he even offered to pay for my expenses, but stubborn as I was, I refused. But on 25 February 1999 which was my birthday, God provided me the resources to get money and I came for the retreat. During the retreat, I had a good spiritual counselling session wherein I really experienced the healing touch of the Lord Jesus and my backache disappeared. After returning home, in a few months God worked a miracle to set me free from my financial problem. He provided money through my own family members – my brothers and sisters - and helped me to tide over my crisis. Today financially I am very prosperous; I have a well furnished and well decorated house, a good business and my sons are all well settled. I praise you and thank you Lord Jesus.
