Conversation with Doug today at Chamber of Commerce Ribbon Cutting at Vineyard Church in Goodyear. Doug was sitting for a prolonged period today due to back pain/immobility. Doug received prayer today during the Chamber function and said that he felt much improved. What was amazing was Doug's testimonies about being healed from alcoholism and Stage 4 Hodgkin's Disease.
Doug mentioned that while working as a Firefighter in Ojai, CA he struggled with alcoholism. At one point, Doug was asked by another firefighter if he had experienced the 'laying on of hands'. Doug, from a traditional Lutheran background, said 'no'. The co-worker proceeded laying hands on Doug and praying for him. In Doug's mind's eye he saw a demon leave him. From that point on, Doug was cured of alcoholism.
Another account was when Doug was suffering with Stage 4 Hodgkin's. In their bedroom, Doug's wife laid hands on him and prayed. At once a very powerful sulfur smell left Doug's body. The smell was strong enough that their daughter smelled it in another part of the house. Doug was instantly healed of cancer.
