Mrs Diane Ebele Okeke was confined to the wheelchair for years. Since 2009, she had been having serious issues with her legs. She was thereafter diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis which had rendered her ineffective as a mother and as a wife. Initially, there were fears that she may not be able to bear a child as the illness had affected many other parts of her body including her waist. She had been living with the support of family members for several years. Many visits to different hospitals did not yield any solution. Even when she managed to give birth to a child, after a very long labour, the problem worsened. You can imagine how a woman confined to the wheelchair and in pain could breastfeed her baby. It was a serious travail for her!
Her seven years of anguish eventually came to an end on Saturday June 11, 2016 as Prophet T.B. Joshua held a Prayer Line in commemoration of his 53rd birthday anniversary as directed by the Holy Spirit. Mrs Okeke was brought down to The SCOAN all the way from Abuja in her wheelchair. As the man of God was ministering healing outside the auditorium, Mrs Okeke cried out and attracted his attention. Laying his anointed hands on her in the mighty name of Jesus, Mrs Okeke sprang to her feet and walked without support for the first time in seven years. Shouting, “I am healed… Thank you Jesus,” there was wild jubilation by her sister and those who witnessed the demonstration of God’s power through the man of God. Testifying in company of her sister, Mrs Okeke thanked God for her healing, saying that she now does things for herself. All the pain that had made her life sorrowful are gone for good.
