God's Mercy Transforms Woman's Life - Daisy Michael, Thane

I am a widow, 47 years old, having two sons, a daughter-in-law and a grandson. My first retreat was in 2005 and this is my second visit. I was living a sinful life and very easily I could get trapped by men. I was also in heavy debts and tried to commit suicide many a times. An agent cheated my son for Rs.80,000/-, I lost my own house and my second son was jobless.

After my last retreat, my whole life changed completely. During the Inner Healing service, the Lord in His mercy lifted me up, a person whom the world had rejected. The priest called me by name saying "Daisy the Lord is healing you, I am your shepherd, there is nothing you shall want. Let any darkness come, I am there with you."

I was shocked and cried bitterly and could not believe the Lord could forgive my so many sins. I became the leader in the Charismatic Group; the Lord blessed all those people who had lent me money and they relieved me of the interest which I had to pay. They only took the capital amount which was about Rs. 50,000-60,000. My second son got a job in Dubai without paying any money. Today he is a safety officer. My elder son who is an executive supporter, got married and has a son. Praise the Lord for He saved my family and drew us out of the pit. Thank you Jesus!
