Healed of Colon Cancer: Testimony of Sis. Jodie Mancera

Sis. Jodie Mancera at JMCIM Worship Service, Amoranto Stadium, Oct. 2011

In December 1994, just two weeks after Sister Jodie Mancera delivered her second child via CS, she was operated twice due to infected intestines. But even after her last confinement and surgery, her situation did not improve. She suffered from fevers, intense stomach pains day and night, and couldn’t move out bowel. Within weeks, she was again back to the hospital. From December 1994 to June 1995, she had had four major surgeries.

On her fourth surgery, she was diagnosed with colon cancer. Around this time, her beloved husband, Brother Joey Mancera, was already converted and was serving the Lord Jesus Christ faithfully in JESUS MIRACLE CRUSADE INTERNATIONAL MINISTRY.

According to Bro. Joey’s testimony, sometime between his bel. wife’s second or third surgery, he was so distraught about their situation – financially, emotionally, and spiritually – that he sank on his knees on the floor and cried out to God. He prayed and asked God where he must go to seek His face. He testifies that after his earnest prayer, he heard a voice – cool and powerful, and sounded like that of waterfalls. The voice told him to worship God in spirit and in truth in Jesus Miracle Crusade International Ministry, that there, he will find the true pastor that will feed him with knowledge and understanding, and where God’s power is manifested. The voice further said that He abhors worship of graven images and idols.

Without wasting time, Bro. Joey attended the worship service of JMCIM and received the Lord Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior and baptism in water in Jesus’ name. Instantly, he received healing of all his diseases – enlargement of the heart, ulcer, and hypertension. He was also completely changed. He forsook his vices such as alcohol and cigarettes.

Even before Sis. Jodie’s fourth surgery, Bro. Joey was already trying to share the Gospel to her and the many amazing testimonies of God’s healing in the Church, but Sis. Jodie was hardhearted and instead, openly persecuted the Church.

While sick and weak in the hospital after her fourth surgery, Sis. Jodie remained unchanged in her belief and told her bel. husband that she would get well and fully recover because she had complete medicines. It was at this point that Bro. Joey disclosed to her that according to the doctors, she had only four months to live.

Sis. Jodie continued to suffer from excruciating pain in her stomach. She spent the nights crying in pain. One night, she dreamed that she went to a church where she saw all the graven images and idols fallen on the floor, she was so terrified she ran and ran. Then she saw a door open and the name of JMCIM written inside with the Jesus Finest Generation Choir singing.

Finally, Sis. Jodie surrendered her life to the Lord and after her water baptism, she received complete healing of her disease. This was 16 years ago, and she and her bel. husband continue to serve the Lord faithfully to this day. Bro. Joey became a preacher of the Church.

Halleluiah! To God be the glory!

New Vision

Around February this year, Sister Reina Ibarra felt like something was covering her left eye and it was painful. She began to observe that during choir practices, she could hardly see the lyrics of the songs.

She went to see an eye specialist and she was diagnosed to have glaucoma. The pressure of her left eye was 60 (the pressure of a normal eye is only 21-22). She was almost blind and the pain that it brought was hard to bear.

The doctor advised that she undergo immediate surgery – not that her left eye would be able to see, but just to remove the high pressure and relieve her of the pain. But Sis. Reina did not agree to surgery, but chose to put her complete trust in the Lord Jesus Christ.

She was prayed over and laid hands on by the beloved Hon. Pastor Wilde E. Almeda. She cried in her prayer that she wouldn’t mind to be partially blind, but begged the Lord to remove the extreme pain the high pressure in her left eye was causing.

She was urged by the Holy Spirit to offer prayers with fasting. Sis. Reina had some qualms about it for she is already 71 years old, but prompted and strengthened by the Holy Spirit, she released her faith and set out for the fasting house in Sauyo, Novaliches, Quezon City.

On the 8th day of her fasting, as they were starting the morning praise and worship, her left eye was red and very painful. But Sis. Reina didn’t lose hope. She proceeded to sing praises to the Lord and worship Him with all her heart and might.

Halfway in their praise and worship, she looked on the left side of the worship room and she almost couldn’t believe that she was seeing clearly! She was able to read clearly the Scriptures that were posted on the walls. The pain in her eye was completely gone and her vision became normal.

She couldn’t help exclaiming, “Is this really true? My eye is healed!” And she jumped in joy as she rejoiced in the Lord to express her gratitude.

Sis. Reina came to know and serve the Lord Jesus in 1988. At that time, she already had three major surgeries: her ovary was removed, her intestines were cut, and her bladder was also operated on. She was suffering from high blood pressure, hemorrhoid, and poor eyesight. But all these were totally healed by the Lord Jesus Christ when she received Him as her Lord and Savior and was baptized in water in His name.

Since then, Sis. Reina served the Lord faithfully to this day. During the early years, she worked in crusades throughout the country. She sings in the Adults’ Choir, assists in Bible Studies and also in jail ministry.

Halleluiah! To God be the glory!
