An Answered Prayer

As many of you know, Debe's mom, Hiroko lives with us. She is a real blessing to us as she helps to watch Emi and assists in many things around the house.

Well last week, she had this really bad back pain. It was like someone was clenching my back with their hands. She did not mention this to any of us and she went to bed still in great pain.

Unable to sleep, she felt the only thing left to do was ask God to take the pain away. The next thing she remembers is waking up at 3:30 am, needing to use the toilet. Afraid to stand, but having no choice, she gingerly tried to stand up.

To her amazment, the pain was no more! God had answered her prayer. This was a huge faith builder for her, as she only recently became a Christian.

God was faithful to heal her of her pain, and Hiroko has been faithful to mention it to anyone who will listen!
