“I HEARD MY OWN VOICE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN SIXTEEN YEARS!”
Helen was just three years old. A playful, boisterous girl with a world of opportunity laying squarely before her. But the devil struck in the cruellest of manners. The symptoms were malaria but the consequences were far worse. Miss Ukpong’s both ears became suddenly, inexplicably deaf.
Her mother, Promise, tried every possible medical means to salvage her daughters’ hearing. She visited ear specialists throughout the country who attempted various treatments without success. Specialised hearing aids were flown in from Germany after being designed according to her specifications. Even then, the problem persisted. Helen learned how to lip-read in an attempt to manage the situation but almost lost her life on many occasions when she didn’t hear the sound of incoming vehicles while crossing the road. Her education suffered terribly as she could not cope in school with the ailment.
However, last week, something incredible happened! “When the Morning Water was ministered, I felt something burst in my ears,” Helen tearfully recounted. “I then heard my voice and the voices of people around me for the first time in sixteen years!” It was a joyous moment as mother and daughter embraced at the miracle that defied human comprehension! For the last week, Helen has been living freely without wearing hearing aids – enjoying the sounds of the world around her for the first time! “The God that healed my daughter will locate your own case today, in Jesus’ name,” Promise Ukpong advised the congregation.
