Sis. Sarah Advincula sings in the Jesus Finest Generation Choir of the JESUS MIRACLE CRUSADE INTERNATIONAL MINISTRY. But in 2007, she felt a lump in her breast, and as the days passed, it grew to a size bigger than her breast itself. She knew then that she was sick.
In January of 2008, Sis. Sarah went to see a doctor. After her check-up, she knew from the doctor’s face that her condition was grim. The doctor advised her to seek second opinion. But instead of seeing another doctor, she decided to go to the fasting house instead.
On her way to the fasting house, her breast lump broke out and blood oozed from it. After praying and fasting, she went to see another doctor. This was where she learned that she had stage 4 breast cancer.
Her relatives offered financial help for her surgery and chemotherapy. But Sis. Sarah declined it and chose to trust God completely.
During the time that she was ill, she spent most of it in the fasting house (Sauyo, Novaliches, Quezon City, Phils.) where she could join in the praise and worship in the morning, at noon, and in the evening. She also offered up prayers with fasting (one-meal or two-meal fasting). She continued to sing in the choir whenever she had enough strength to do it. Beloved Hon. Pastor Wilde E. Almeda also prayed for her and laid his hands on her for her healing.
Almost everyday, the wound in her breast bled that it could fill up half of a plastic bag. This made her feel faint. Most mornings, she would wake up with her blouse soaked with blood. There were times that she couldn’t eat and became weak.
One day, while she was lying in bed alone, she had difficulty breathing. She prayed to the Lord, “Dearest Jesus, if You will take me now, it will be alright with me. I’m thankful that I’ve known You and that I’m in the truth.” Then the Holy Spirit whispered to her, “Sing praises to the Lord.” Though weak, Sis. Sarah did her best to rise up from the bed and on her knees, sang to the Lord. After a while, she felt better and was restrengthened.
After a year of being ill, Sis. Sarah began to recover and regain strength. The lump in her breast gradually disappeared until it was completely gone leaving only a wound, and the color of her breast returned to normal. When the doctor saw it, he could only utter, “Amazing!” Sis. Sarah is already negative of cancer.
Around 3rd quarter of 2009, I saw Sis. Sarah testify in the pulpit for the first time after she was healed, and she was in the pink of health!
Sis. Sarah went back singing in the choir and continues to serve the Lord fervently to this day.
Halleluia! To God be the glory!
