A Good Confession Heals Man - Walter Pinto, Mumbai

"I Rely On Your Constant Love; I Will Be Glad, Because You Will Rescue Me"(Ps.13:5)

I am a graduate from Srinagar, Kashmir and now working for M/s.German Remedies as Area Manager for Government Industries in Mumbai. My first retreat was in August 2001. A good confession of my sins broke down and rooted out all the stones in my kidneys, which made me suffer with acute pain for 20 years. The stones were forming in my kidneys on an average once in six months. I got fed up with the passing of 42 kidney stones. I took homeopathic treatment, which was of no use. I had undergone surgery twice. Every now and then I had to go through Lithotripsy, which was a costly affair. Even then the stones kept forming within me. I was miserably disappointed. At this stage God intervened in my life. I was taken to Divine Retreat Centre by force. On the first day I tried to escape but was caught by the Security. Thanks to them. Slowly I took a liking for the Word of God and stuck to my seat for the entire week, and the power of the Word of God melted my heart. I asked Lord Jesus to help me to confess my sins and I repented. Tears flowed out of my eyes and for the first time in my life I wept so bitterly. After confession I felt very light. I was over joyed and forgot myself. I knew my Lord had forgiven me. Since then till date I have no more pain and no more stones. I am here to thank and praise my Jesus for healing me. I got this healing through forgiveness of my sins by confession. Thank you Lord! Alleluia
