Healing Miracles and Deliverance: Testimony of Bro. Boy Manguera

Bro. Boy Manguera testifying during JMCIM Sunday service at Amoranto Stadium, Quezon City, Phils., Oct. 2011.

Brother Boy Manguera, a preacher of the JESUS MIRACLE CRUSADE INTERNATIONAL MINISTRY, was in tears as he thanked and exalted the name of the Lord Jesus Christ in his latest testimony. He was weeping in awe, amazement, and deep gratitude as he related the recent miracle that happened to him.

At dawn of Monday (October 3), just after the victorious celebration of the 11th Mindanao Peace Mission Anniversary and Thanksgiving Crusade, Bro. Boy, together with the other preachers from around the country, was sitting on a chair inside our beloved Hon. Pastor Wilde E. Almeda’s tent on the stage of the Quirino Grandstand in Luneta.

Then without minding his surroundings, Bro. Boy leaned back not knowing that the place where he was sitting had no barrier except a curtain, and so suddenly, he was on a free-fall. He fell backwards from a height of more or less ten feet and landed on the concrete floor head first.

He testifies that although the impact was so strong, he didn’t feel anything. He sustained a large gash on his head from which copious amount of blood spurted. But all the preachers did not delay in rushing to where he was lying and all-together prayed in faith with power and authority. After the prayer, the flow of blood instantly stopped and Bro. Boy was brought to a clinic where his wound was sewed up. Miraculously, he was well after his horrifying fall. Halleluiah!  

Bro. Boy used to live in depravity, going out with evildoers and wallowing in vices. Because of this, he acquired sicknesses and diseases such as weak lungs and acute ulcer. He had no hope of a new life, but one day in 1986, he found the Lord Jesus Christ in a crusade of the Jesus Miracle Crusade Int’l. Ministry. That day, he received the Lord Jesus in his life as his Lord and Savior, was baptized in water in His name, and surrendered his life to Him.

His life was completely changed and all his diseases were healed. He became a preacher of the Church, and together with his whole family and relatives  who were also saved later, pioneered the outreach in Lemery, Batangas. Their hard, miserable life before was blessed abundantly by the Lord.

In 2007, Bro. Boy’s faith was tested when he became sick of gallstones. He could no longer eat and so, he lost a lot of weight. He also couldn’t sleep for almost three months. The doctor who diagnosed him prescribed many medicines that he must take daily and advised that he must undergo immediate surgery. He was warned that if he wasn’t operated on immediately, he might die in just four months or become comatose.

But Bro. Boy refused surgery and also didn’t buy any of the medicines. He knew that his sickness was just “a reminder” from the Lord for he had been contemplating giving up preaching. He knew his plan wasn’t the will of God.

He sought counsel from the house of our beloved Hon. Pastor Wilde E. Almeda and he was told that he was called to preach and should never turn his back from God’s holy calling. Right then and there, Bro. Boy vowed to the Lord that he would go back to preach the Gospel with boldness. Instantly, he felt relief and was able to eat well and sleep soundly. He obtained complete healing without surgery or medicines!

Halleluiah! To God be the glory!

To my beloved brethren-in-Christ, I included the recorded Tagalog testimony of Bro. Boy Manguera below. I pray that you will share it with others also.

Love Begets Miracles

Sis. Rolina Montemayor with daughter, Sis. Fredlyn. (June 2011 at Amoranto Stadium)

Sis. Rolina Montemayor’s sixteen-year-old daughter, Fredlyn, felt a lump in her right breast which started to be painful. Weeks passed and the lump grew bigger and three other lumps had appeared. The color of her breast became blackish violet, like it was bruised. Her breast became enlarged, darker and very painful as the weeks passed by.

Her mother told her that they would see a doctor to know what it really was, but she begged off, telling her mother that this would only increase her fear and weaken her faith. Sis. Fredlyn chose to put her complete trust in the Lord Jesus Christ and to cling to the many testimonies of God’s miraculous healing that she had heard.

A few months passed and the pain brought by her swelling breast spread to her neck, back and upper arm, making it extremely difficult and painful to make the slightest movement. They were certain, even without diagnosis, that Sis. Fredlyn had breast cancer.

Sis. Rolina prayed hard to the Lord, asking for mercy and guidance. She dreamed of offering a long fasting and prayer in the fasting house. But Sis. Rolina wasn’t ready for a longer fasting, beyond 15 days. But as the days passed, her daughter’s condition became worse, and she, too, started to suffer from respiratory disease and swelling and reddening of her lower legs that was really painful.

Sis. Rolina decided to request for prayer from the beloved Hon. Pastor Wilde E. Almeda, for healing and strength to offer up a longer fasting and prayer.

After they were prayed over and laid hands on by the beloved pastor, mother and daughter prepared for their long stay in the fasting house and then, off they went.

On their first day of prayer and fasting, Sis. Fredlyn vomitted blackish, foul-smelling liquid with blood. On the 7th day, Sis. Rolina gave her daughter some food for a light break, while she herself continued to fast without taking a break. After her light break, Sis. Fredlyn continued with her prayer and fasting.

In the fasting house, as morning (6am to 3pm) and evening (6pm to 10:00pm) praise and worship and prayers roared on, Sis. Rolina spent 3-4 hours straight on her knees, praying and begging the Lord for the complete healing of her beloved daughter.

On their 23rd day, the lumps, pain, swelling and bruising were all gone from Sis. Fredlyn’s breast. She asked her mother if they could go home, but Sis. Rolina gently reminded her daughter that they vowed to the Lord to finish 40-day fasting and prayer, and she was determined to do that. Sis. Fredlyn had three or four light breaks during the whole duration.

On their 3oth day, the monsoon rains began, and since they didn’t bring thick clothing or blankets to ward off the cold, this made it harder for them to finish their 40-day fasting. Being without food for a very long time, the cold brought by the heavy rains made their knees trembling.

But Sis. Rolina, instead of praying that they be “excused” from completing their long fasting, prayed for more spiritual and bodily strength, that the Lord would comfort and strengthen them.

[At this point, I remember the article I wrote about Paul and Silas entitled “What Moves God?“. That mother and daughter could have cut their fasting, because Sis. Fredlyn had received complete healing of the symptoms of breast cancer, and Sis. Rolina also received complete healing from her respiratory disease and swelling and reddening of her lower legs. But they chose to honor the Lord. This was more than faith. It was faith expressing itself through LOVE.]  

After their 40-day prayer and fasting, Sis. Rolina and her daughter Fredlyn recovered well and they both testified of the complete healing they received from the Lord Jesus Christ.

Halleluiah! To God be ALL the glory!

A New Life

Bro. Willy Navea at Amoranto Stadium, June 2011.

Before He came to know the Lord, Bro. Willy Navea lived in worldly pleasures, indulging in many vices like alcohol and cigarettes. He was such a hard drinker and chain smoker that he developed many diseases, two of which were liver and lung diseases.

He was in and out of hospitals, but his diseases progressed and he became very weak and lost a lot of weight. He couldn’t work anymore, so he had to quit his job. Also, the doctors had given up on him. He was only 35 years old, and he was dying.

Bro. Willy knew he hadn’t much time to live. He decided to go home to Bicol province because he was thinking that the funeral expenses were so expensive in Manila and he and his wife couldn’t afford it. So, he left his wife (who was working in Manila)  and traveled to their hometown.

Bro. Willy was desperate. He knew he was going to die but he wasn’t ready. He thought he was too young. The thought of facing death tormented him. 

When he arrived in their home in Bicol after a long travel, he found out that the worship service of JESUS MIRACLE CRUSADE INTERNATIONAL MINISTRY was being held in their house.

As it turned out, the Gospel was preached to him and he readily received the Lord Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior and was baptized in water in His name.

He poured out all his hope and faith to the Lord. He continued to serve Him. It didn’t take long that he got completely healed and he recovered. He testifies that his friend, who also had liver disease, but didn’t choose to accept the Lord Jesus’ offer of salvation and healing, died in just a few weeks.

Bro. Willy received new life from the Lord almost two decades ago. He continues to serve the Lord fervently to this day.

Halleluia! To God be the glory!
