We overcome by the blood of the lamb and by the power and word of our testimony (Rev 12:11)
You can be strengthened from hearing personal testimonies. When you hear of other ordinary couples like yourself experiencing miracles, this can encourage you and bring hope. And what I find exciting is that God does NOT have favourites. Anyone can experience what He has already FREELY provided through the "Finished Work" of the Cross!
My prayer is that you will be encouraged and come to the truth that nothing is impossible with God!

Conception after m/c and infertility
When I discovered I fell pregnant, I was excited of course. But the 2nd check up was a blow to me. There was no heartbeat and no growth. I was supposed to be 7th week. I went for 2 other check ups and results were the same. It was really devastating. Though I am a believer, my knowledge of God then was so limited! I read God's Plan For Pregnancy by Nerida Walker at that time and the only thing I believed was the "none shall miscarry nor be barren" part and was convinced God was not the taker.
Sadly, I had no support from my church. When I shared the verse in Exodus 23:25-26, everyone even said that was not for us, only for that people that time. That said, I was still not shaken. But it was suppressing and depressing for others to tell you to take away the baby and accept it to be God's will, that baby was not going to grow well, so He took it away so I would not have to suffer. WHAT A LOAD OF CRAP!!! If I had stood firm, things would be different. Point was, I could find no support. Even my pastor, the night before the D&C, he called and asked how I was. I firmly told him it was not God who took it away and I could sense his skepticism. After the op, I stayed home and had a really good rest, still knowing God is in control but could not help to think why it happened to me, etc.
Fast forwarding, through Nerida's God's Plan for Pregnancy Conference in New Creation Church, Singapore Oct 2011, I met 2 really close and Godly sisters and they really helped in alot in this journey. I was and am fed continually with Grace sermon after sermon and books too. Books By Nerida Walker, Joseph Prince and Andrew Wommack. My knowledge of God really grew and I know that our God is a really loving and gracious Father! Hallelujah! I begin to lay hands on my body and command it to be in line with the word of God. (There are actually much more to share wrt teachings but I will leave it to next time. This thread is really long =p)
Of course, the results were not immediate. There were disappointments again mth aft mth, but I learn to praise God that I am one cycle closer! I learn too that to seek God first and His righteousness and ALL these things will be added unto me! I conceived in late April 2012 and after the Gynae checkup, I backdated the dates and discovered the conception took place around the 14th day of the normal cycle. My cycles were 36-42 days long, so how could that be? God is the God of the impossible! My previous conception also fell around the 14th day. PTL!
Honestly, I was paranoid due to my previous m/c and for the 1st 2 check ups, I kept asking the Gynae about the heartbeat. For the 3rd check up, I did not ask, for I know I must put my trust in Him, though I was nervous. But my dear Gynae cheekily pointed out the heartbeat and even turned on sound for me to hear the heartbeat!
I even saw how my BB leaped in my womb and I was reminded of how Elizabeth's bb leaped in her womb too!
It is really an awesome journey for me and I thank Nerida and others that rally and pray around me.
PREGNANT with NO menstrual Cycle!
This pregnancy is such a blessing and if I didn't saw my tummy grow I would never have known I'm pregnant. God is NOT a man that He can lie! Boaz went in unto Ruth and she conceived. There doesn't stand she ovulated or what her cycle day was etc etc. Look carefully at this verse: Rth_4:13 So Boaz took Ruth, and she was his wife: and when he went in unto her, the LORD gave her conception, and she bare a son. It says THE LORD GAVE THE CONCEPTION... Keep your gaze to His, for He is truly who He say He is!!!!!
Pregnant after Uterus Removed!
Devastated and heartbroken I cried in my hospital room as I read my Bible in between visits from my church family. One day, while reading, I could hear a very soft voice say "you will have children". I thought it was just me. I discounted it and just accepted the defeat. Over the next few years I put it out of my mind because I thought it was impossible but the pull of my heart wouldn't let me alone. To make a long story short, many things happened over several years that brought me to December 2011 when God chose my time to carry my husband's baby!! He is Faithful to His word.
I'm so overjoyed and overwhelmed. I'm about 9 weeks pregnant and all I can say is that if you've had doubts or if you think your situation is impossible...I DARE you to trust in my God. He's able to do what doctors and Man has said is impossible. Nerida, I read your testimony and I saw where you and Shaun looked beyond what was real or in your face and decided to believe Jesus who is the TRUTH. My testimony and pregnancy story isn't like anyone else's except that I decided to believe Jesus with everything that I have within me. Because I didn't have options (IVF, Adoption) ...just Jesus. So with that I'm just here to bare witness that God heals, he redeems, and makes a way out of no way.
Bonus Baby after Male Factor and m/c
Four months went by and I still was not pregnant. I had a feeling something wasn't right. I went to my doctor and although I was ovulating she placed me on clomid thinking maybe we just needed a boost. Still nothing. By June of 2006 I had a feeling something was terribly wrong, so we made the appointment with the reproductive specialist. The reproductive doctor listened to what we had to say and took our medical history and almost all the blood we had. She told us that she felt that a course or two of IUI just might be all that we needed. I was scheduled for the procedure where they shoot die into your uterus and through your tubes and they look at is on x-ray while they do it (sorry I forgot what this was called). She told me that I had text book perfect anatomy. There appeared to be absolutely nothing wrong with me. So they scheduled us a time and began to prepare me for IUI. In the meantime they ran a sperm count test on my husband. When they received the results of that test they called me. I am sorry they said. They told me they were cancelling my IUI appointment because my husband's sperm count was so low that they would not even be able to get enough sperm to do the procedure. I ran to a friend's house sat in her living room and cried my eyes out. After meeting with the doctor again we were told the only chance we had of conceiving was IVF and not only that they were sure that even if they placed my husband's sperm in the dish with my egg that they would still not be able to fertilize them. We would need intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) were the sperm is manually injected into the egg. I was totally shocked by everything that I was hearing. How could this be? We had gotten pregnant so easily twice? Their answer to that was they felt I was extremely fertile and that we had gotten lucky. The cost of the IVF procedure was crazy and the ethical issues were even more daunting. They ask you questions like in the event that one of us should die did we want the remaining spouse to inherit the embryos? In the event of both of our deaths what did we want them to do with our embryos? Embryos?? They would be my babies. All this was just too much for me and I began to explore the idea of adoption.
In October of 2006 a little face came across a website I was visiting from time to time. I couldn't get that face out of mind!! I found myself praying for him at night that he would find a good home. Finally one day my husband said. Why don't you just call the agency about him. I won't go into all the details of my adoption story but God opened door after door and in August 2007 I flew home with my little 14 month old son (Caeden Michael Alexander). Let me stop here to tell you a little bit about the depression I was in along the way. I cried and sobbed myself to sleep almost every night. I felt hopeless and dark and felt like there was no end to the pain I was feeling inside. I went to a church where it seemed like everyone was pregnant. I can't tell you how many times I sat in the parking lot holding on the steering wheel, and I cried out to God "I just can't go in there. . .help me do it one more time." So needless to say when I came home with my son I was hoping beyond hope that those feelings and depression would go away. I was disappointed. They did not go away. I loved my son. I was thankful for him. But I still longed to be pregnant and carry another baby. Should I go back and do IVF? I even called and got the financial paperwork again and was ready to fill it out and approach my husband when he got a job offer. The job did not work out the way we anticipated and sent us into a financial spiral for several years. Now our credit was ruined. . . I had no money and IVF was not an option. I didn't know where to turn.
On November 2, 2008 I was invited by a friend to visit the church where she and her husband were pastoring. I gladly accepted the invitation and I looked forward to lunch and the visit after church. Her husband preached a message that Sunday about who was the Lord of your life. Was it Jesus? He said you know who the lord of your life is by what you talk about. The lord of your life shapes you, hammers you, and you become like what ever is on the throne of your life. At the end of the message he gave an invitation to stand up and say JESUS is the lord of my life. I stood with everyone else. Of course JESUS was the Lord of my life right?? On the ride home I began to think about it. I mean really think about it. Was Jesus Lord of my life?? Is He what I talked about? No He wasn't. I had place infertility as the lord of my life. I had dethroned the very God who had all the answers. I started to sob in the car and told my husband. I knew something had to change.
I started to look on the internet for answers. I found Nerida Walker's yahoo on-line support group, Women in Faith!! I began to listen to what she had to say when people asked questions. Then one day someone asked Nerida about what she thought about it when people said that they would be pregnant when God was ready in His timing. Nerida's answer to her question changed everything for me. I can't write what she said or explain it the way she did. But her answer can be read on her website under God's timing. All I had to do was receive God's healing like I did with salvation. It was mine!! God wasn't withholding from me. He had already provided for me a way out of infertility!! Something snapped on the inside of me. For the first time in years I had hope. I decided a few months later to go for prayer and have the people at a healing room agree with me in prayer. In the meantime I spent my nights before falling asleep asking Jesus to let me know him better. I wanted to know who he was . I read the gospels. I wanted to know what Jesus did here on earth. I began to understand about speaking God's word and having what I say line up with the Bible. My husband and I began to speak God's word over our bodies. After going and praying with the ladies at my local healing room I was done with the tears and the sadness. I knew that God's will was for me to have all the babies I wanted. That month when my cycle started it did not both me. I looked at my husband and said its ok my day is coming. And I didn't have another cycle after that one. The next month I missed my period and my husband said you had better test and sure enough I was pregnant. On March 21, 2010 our little Caelyn Iona Grace was born. In all of this my husband was going through a time of no employment or under employment. You would have thought that I would be thinking of birth control right? Nope Let me warn you that when your bodies line up with scripture they work!! In just a year and one month I found myself pregnant again. In april of 2009 my husband and I quietly took communion every night and prayed and believe that by the end of that month we would have an answer to our financial issues. And we did. Two days after my husband had started a new job (best he has ever had) and his birthday too, I sent him a text of a picture of a positive pregnancy test!! We were pregnant with a bonus baby!! ;-)
On Jan 24 of this year (2012) at 11:30 or so at night I felt what I thought was braxton hicks. I was nine days over due. I thought the contractions were going away so I told my husband we should go to bed. So I did. At 2 am I was back up. This was labor. I hated to wake my husband up. I knew he would need to rest. So I dealt with it on my own for a couple of hours. At 4:30 am I woke him up and told him we should start preparing to go to the hospital. I arrived at the hospital at about 7 am. My contractions were consist and I was dealing with them well. The nurse checked me and I was 5-6 centimeters. She told me that bag holding the water was just bulging. Like it wanted to break but wouldn't. That was interesting to me because my water always broke on its own. Strange I thought. But overall Great news!! I was on my way. Some where around 11 am the doctor came in and guess what. . .no change in my cervix. Bag of water still bulging. He decided he would break it but he would let me get an epidural first and get comfortable and he would come back. I got the epidural and was really relaxed and comfortable. I have no idea what time he came back but my guess is that it was some where around 3 pm. Again he checked me and there was no change and the bag of water was still bulging. So he proceed to break it and the water ran our clear. But at the moment my babies heart rate dropped dangerously low. My doctor didn't take his eyes off the monitor. They tried an internal monitor to make sure what they were seeing was correct. Babies heart rate was not good. He said you have five minutes. If there is no improvement we will have to do a C-section. He told me they would be moving very quickly. In a matter of minutes I was being rushed with down the hallway to the operating room. The doctor said that he may have to put me to sleep. I started to pray. "Lord please let me be able to stay awake" As soon as I hit the operating table the baby's heart rate come up to normal and they had time to convert my epidural for surgery. Carys Isla Faith was born around 4 pm. When they pulled my little girl out they found her cord wrapped around her neck not once but three times!!! Without the amniotic fluid she was hanging and her cord was strangling her. To think I had been in labor since 11 pm the night. The water could have broken at anytime and she would have died long before I could have driven 45 minutes to the hospital. Ladies I know that God had His hand on my baby that day. He held her. I know He was preventing he sac from breaking and the amniotic fluid from leaking!! Praise the Lord!! I am two babies past impossible. I thought the other day how what the reproductive doctor said seems so unreal now. It wasn't the truth!! And my doctor completely contradicted her just a few weeks ago when he warned me that I could easily get pregnant again. What God's Word said became truth in our lives. LOL Isn't our God great!!

Conception of TWINS after your Conference!
It was the most trying period of our lives, without a doubt. At the point in time, we were both attending another church. But a few friends invited us to attend your talk at NCC on separate occasions, and we decided to do so.
When you called for those who have lost their child to go up for alter call, me and wife went up immediately because we felt it was God telling us to go up and receive the blessings. You prayed for the 2 of us.
Shortly after, we went for a Europe trip to take our minds of the trauma from the last few months.. and my wife once again conceived! When we went to the gynae for checkup, the news that he delivered was truly a miracle. We were expecting twin! One boy and one girl! The gynae who is a Christian himself, prayed for us every time we visited him. He said he's just a servant to the Lord, and he will provide the best medical care and advice he can in the way that the Lord wants to use him.
This past Sunday (May 2012) at approx 5.20am Singapore time, my wife went into labour and Shannen was born. Shiloh followed 17mins later. As they are both pre maturely born at 32 weeks, both are now in the NICU and will be there for the next few weeks.
However, both have stablised their conditions and are doing well. We trust in the Lord that He is with him throughout the twins' stay there, and He will make them stronger and healthier each and every moment. We cant wait to bring the twins home, where everything is ready and waiting for them.
Ever since we attended your talk at NCC last year, we have been attending the Sunday services there since. It has been a wonderful experience and revelation to experience God's grace in the way that we have never experience before, through the teaching of Pastor Prince. He is doing an amazing job delivering God's promises to the believers and we feel our faith strengthening day by day.
Once again, thanks for the one encounter that you had with us when you were in Singapore last Sep. You may not remember us, but rest assured God has given us the tools to deliver His goodness to the people. Continue the great job and hopefully, the twins will get to see you in person someday!
A & C, from Singapore.
Healing of Placenta Acretta
This is my story of a miraculously healed placenta from an accretta diagnosis and a perfectly healed scar inside my womb after four caesarean sections.
On the 18th April 2012 I went into theatre to have my fourth ceasearan section delivery. Prieviosuly I've had three sections due to two labors that failed to progress; including a slight rupture in the second from the VBAC. The thrid section was elective and the medical professionals were cautious of me having another c- section. However, we believed it would be ok.
This fourth pregnancy was going great until at the 19 week anatomy scan, the sonographer detected a placenta acretta. This is a condition where the placenta grows into the muscle lining of the womb, making it extremely difficult to detach at delivery and meaning the womb would have to be removed. You can imagine my concern when presented with this medical diagnosis of suspected acretta. I was monitored throughout the remainder of the pregnancy with scans and in the third trimester was having fortnightly scans to detemine how the placenta was going. Lakes were presenting and I was counselled about loosing my womb and a 34-35 week premature delivery.
We refused to accept this diagnois! As Christians we believed that the Word of God does not return void and that the promises of God and true and available for us to access at any given time as sons and daughters of God. We stood in prayer, believing that with God all things are possible and that the medical profession would be astonished by a miraculous outcome..
Well the Doctors allowed the pregnancy to continue until 38 weeks and I was booked into theatre for delivery at this point in the pregnancy. On the day of the operation, there was 14 people in the theatre. I signed the form for blood transfusion and agreed to the hysterectomy if needed. There was a Consulant Speciliast Dr, a Registrar Doctor, 2 Obystetricans, a Paedetriacian, as well as a Midwife, Anethatist, Theatre staff, Peter, baby and I present.
Stephen was delivered successfully, without a hitch. He came out with an almighty bellow and had a apgar score of 9! I was carefully sewen up and sent into recovery. Surrounding my bed were allot of relieved looking faces amidst lots of lively conversation about what had transpired. The Doctors were astonished at my perfect womb and perfect placenta!
The following day the Doctor who did the delivery came to my room and spoke with me. She said, " Mrs Kilrain, it doesn't make any sense, your womb is the condition of a woman who has not had a previous c- section." She went on to say, "So we will see you in two years time, for number 5? "Tears of Joy flooded my face as we celebrated our medical miracle and the life that we have been given because of God and his unfailing love. The Word of God that is sharper than any two edged sword, does not return void and has supernatural healing power on it!
Conception after PCOS
At 20 weeks pregnant we were told that I had probable placenta previa, but when rechecked at 30+ weeks the placenta had moved!! Another awesome miracle!! I hit 40 weeks and no baby yet. We commanded labor to start and the next morning I began labor! Labor was "fast & furious" as I went from 4 cm, to 6, to 8, to 10 in just 5 or so hours! Right at the end baby's heart rate began dropping dangerously low. The enemy wanted to do what he does best - steal, kill and destroy, BUT GOD!! Doctors decided an immediate C-section was necessary, but as they were preparing me they found baby had stabilized and were able to let me be awake and hear her be born rather than put me under. God was SO faithful and by 5 o'clock there was a perfectly healthy mommy & baby!! Neither any worse for wear! After just 12 hours I was up walking around & a day or so later we were released to go home both with a perfect bill of health!! God has been SO faithful! And our lives have been so blessed by Him!

Conception - Male Factor
My aunt gifted me with 2 CD's - Gods plan for pregnancy and God is a God of increase not decrease by Nerida Walker in 2009. When I listened to Gods plan for pregnancy, I felt the message speaking to me not only in the area of believing for another child but also in the other areas of failure. It renewed hope in me. I listened to the CD over and over again till I almost knew it by heart. Then tried standing in faith - but every now and then kept falling into throes of depression- Just could not help it. Somewhere along the line I felt God asking me to sow a seed into New Life Ministries as a seed and I obeyed. August 2010, I could worship God with a heart full of gratitude-although situations were status quo. There was peace in my heart. I decided to just concentrate on Him and not circumstances. October 2010, I tested positive for pregnancy !!!!
Pregnancy went on without any complications and I gave birth to a beautiful baby in July 2011. Halleluah !
I sat for some exams during the pregnancy which I had not been able to clear previously and cleared it EFFORTLESSLY. Miracle indeed! Also, slowly but surely our financial situation is improving - from being in the red to seeing positive cash flow.
By Singita, Singapore
Almost exactly at the 2yr mark, when my husband had just a week ago left the country on a work project, i realised my period was a couple of days late. My first thoughts were 'oh no, is MY body playing up now too?!' as my cycles had always been very regular and I was sure of when I had ovulated. When I saw that lady from church i told her that i was late and she smiled calmly and said 'it is done'. I left it another day, then another, then finally on the 5th day i decided I couldn't be in suspense any longer so i got a pregnancy test. There it was - 2 strong, blue lines. My first thought was a calm 'well, there it is!'. Finally, my first ever positive pregnancy test. I rang my husband overseas and he just sounded numb with shock and then the joy started flooding in.
The pregnancy wasn't without its scares. I had 3 small bleeds in the first trimester and hardly pregnancy symptoms at all to 'reassure' me that it was real and not a dream. However, i was reminded again and again that this was God's work and it would be completed. I proclaimed God's promises for children out loud every time i bled and fear came over me.
Now, in October 2010, our darling and perfect little 3 week old daughter, Hope, is sleeping upstairs (after keeping me up most of the night!). We each secretly wanted a girl but would never have admitted it during the pregnancy (although i know we would have fallen in love with a boy just as much), so it feels that God has granted us everything we could have wished for. I even asked Him if she could please have my husband's curly blonde eyelashes, which she has!
We named her Hope for obvious reasons and we tell everyone we can our testimony of God's goodness and faithfulness. We want her to know His faithfulness too and her name should be a constant reminder of what we have as God's children.
Enormous thanks to Nerida, all those who shared testimonies on this website, and all the ladies on the support group. I could not have walked this journey alone.
Baby comes back to life!
My doctor in the U.S had said that the moment i got pregnant i would be put on bed rest and would need to take Heparin shots daily. My husband and I trusted God that i would not need any of this and i even travelled overseas to go to Africa and came back after 5 weeks with no problems. My pregnancy went so smoothly. I kept confessing the word daily and of course fear would grip me every now and then but i would rebuke that fear every time. I turned 38 on May 9th and gave birth two weeks later. Ladies, let's continue to hold fast to the confession of our Hope without wavering!
Conception after miscarriages & infertility
|We have been trying for a child for about 1.5 years. It doesn't sound long but we were under some pressure from friends and relatives around us.Colleagues would make comments like on our age and its time for a child. When faced with such questions, we cannot find an answer. Yes, we have been trying lots of ways, we prayed about it but I believe that it is not within our control. My uncle is a member of:-|

Rachel & Brett NSW - Male and Female Factor
In September 2008, after 3 1⁄2 years of trying for a baby, the doctor diagnosed me with a condition inside my uterus, Adenomyosis (which had not previously been picked up) which meant that I had a very small chance of being able to conceive a baby, about 1-2%, and the only treatment for this condition was quite radical surgery for someone my age, who had not had any children. So now, in the natural, between us there was a very small chance of ever being able to conceive. This was a really low point for me. My faith & patience had been tested to what I felt was my “breaking point” At this time I knew that I had a make a choice – was I going to believe the doctor’s report & be fearful, discouraged & anxious OR was I going to be BELIEVE the Word of God & BELIEVE that Jesus had paid the price for ALL my sickness & disease? I chose to, once again, FIX MY EYES ON JESUS & believe God – I continued thanking Him for my children, praising Him & confessing that I AM A JOYFUL MOTHER OF CHILDREN.
During a time of prayer one night the I read this scripture Psalm 102:12-13 “But you O Lord sit enthroned forever; your renown endures through all generations. You will arise and have compassion on Zion (Rachel), for IT IS TIME to show favor to her, the APPOINTED TIME HAS COME” The next day I was due to have a pregnancy test & I held fast to this promise, the appointed time had come. That next day, the 12th December 2008, Brett & I received the news that we had been waiting almost 4 years to hear – we were pregnant!!!
My pregnancy was a great time of joy & blessing (something that I had confessed over myself during the waiting period) However, in the first trimester, I experienced bleeding on 3 separate occasions. Brett & I prayed & believed together that our baby was growing healthy & strong. Once again I held fast to Psalm 102 & confessed that “the appointed time had come”
During pregnancy I believed God for a supernatural delivery. At 34 weeks our obstetrician advised against a natural delivery due to some complications with the cord. After initially being a little upset I decided to change my confessions for a caesarean delivery. God is SO FAITHFUL & after the birth I read through my confessions & prayer points & God answered EVERY THING that I was believing for.
Today, our precious little miracle, Sophia Eve is almost 4 months old. Sophia is an absolute joy & Brett & I are loving being parents....
Brandi M - Infertility and miscarriage
Samuel is now almost 22 months old and a joy to all who know him. We fully believe the following verse fits Samuel: "He will be a joy and delight to you, and many will rejoice because of his birth, for he will be great in the sight of the Lord," Luke 1:14-15 We know our God is good and gracious. He truly wants our hearts to be satisified. He places the desires in our hearts (our preacher once said "de" means "of" and "sire" means "the father") and will fulfill that desire in His timing. The only thing that can make our testimony better is to let you know that my husband and I found out this past August 2008 that we are pregnant again! It was a total surprise!! I didn't think I could have a baby without praying it here!! We found out in November that this is a precious baby girl. We are so excited to welcome her to our family!
Baby Eliana Celeste M was born 2nd May 2009. 7lbs 10oz, 21 inches long.
Amy B Jan'09 - Male and Female Factor
Heather Sept'08 - Miscarriage testimony
Update: On Monday, October 6th 2009, we welcomed our beautiful baby boy, Johnathan King, into the world! He came early - a whole month or 5 weeks - and surprised us. He was breech, but that was ok...it meant that I had a c-section and he joined us a lot quicker. :) He weighed in at 6 lbs, 4 oz, 18.5 inches.
Nicole (USA) 10+ years of infertility
Janeen - Conception
I found a new doctor who was a Christian, and he told me that I would be able to conceive with my own eggs. God had healed me and turned around my diagnosis. I had a third round of IVF and this time it was successful. I was pregnant. My son, Xavier Azariah, was born on 23 December 2004. (Azariah is Hebrew for ‘My help comes from Jehovah’.)
In the summer of 2006 my husband and I talked about having another child. I remember saying to God one day, ‘Lord, I really don't want any more IVF.’ And that was it. I didn't really pray hard about conception. Shortly after this, I went for my annual check-up and was told I was pregnant (without knowing it!) and the ultrasound revealed that there were 2 heartbeats! I was having twins. I had wanted twins from the time I was a little girl. God remembers your heart, and He renewed my faith and my absolute love and honour for Him with this. I had a son and a daughter (another desire of my heart) in early 2007 – Kingsley and Karrington have joined their brother Xavier!
Anna L (UK) - Conception
Throughout this time, the Holy Spirit revealed things in my life that he wanted to deal with. I was healed from depression, set free from a fear of pregnancy and motherhood, and there was reconciliation with a close family member. I also improved my diet, took vitamin supplements, did more exercise and lost some weight.
In October 2007 I discovered I was pregnant by God’s grace. I am so thankful and praise the Lord for his faithfulness to his promises. I am also truly grateful for the work of this ministry. Anna gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, Daniel in 2008.
Anna gave birth again in May 2009.
We had a frozen embryo transfer 4 months after that and when that was unsuccessful I went on the contraceptive pill for 3 weeks to bring on the next cycle without delay so we could try again. After I stopped taking the pill I waited for my period. After 5 days I started to wonder - on the sixth day I did a pregnancy test and was shocked that I was pregnant! The pregnancy was difficult both emotionally and physically as I was very sick again and had some early bleeding. Once I made it past the 26 weeks I started to feel more confident. At 36 weeks the doctor was a little concerned about the baby's size and I had a scan that revealed the baby was about 2 weeks too small and although the placenta seemed to be functioning fine we decided to have our baby induced 2 weeks early. On 22 March 2005, our beautiful baby girl was born, Zoe (meaning life) Grace. She is an absolute delight and worth the struggle and the journey!
Selena - Endometriosis
In June 2005 my pastor asked my husband and I if we still wanted to have children. He looked me in the eye and said, ‘You are going to get pregnant, it's just going to happen. We just have to pray for really strong sperm.’ We all smiled and from that moment I had so much peace. There was no doubt whatsoever that God was going to give me my miracle and I just had to wait on His perfect timing. At that point my focus was just on serving God and having fun spending time with my husband as a couple. We were making plans of vacations and travelling a lot. We were just having fun and we were not thinking about trying to get pregnant. Soon after this, I discovered I was pregnant. At this very moment (6 March 2006) I'm 9 months pregnant and my contractions are 6 minutes apart.
Hsaio (Singapore) - miscarriage and cysts
I took a triple blood test to test for birth defects in my fourth month and the clinic told me that my baby had a high risk of multiple disabilities. I stood by God's Word, and prayed for healing. After a detailed ultrasound scan, the doctor told me, 'There is nothing wrong with your baby, your baby is very well developed.’ Praise God for His divine healing!
I gave birth to a healthy lovely girl, Eunice Chiong, on 11 July 2005.
It is now March 2007 and I have just discovered that I am 5 weeks pregnant with my second child! God is so great!

When I became pregnant with my son, Matthew, I found out that I also had 2 very large ovarian cysts (one on each ovary). It was hoped that during the pregnancy the cysts would go down. They did slightly but never went away and eventually cut off circulation to Matthew so that he was born stillborn at 5 months gestation.
One month later I went in to have the cysts removed. I specifically signed papers refusing to allow the doctor to 'remove' anything but the cysts. My ovaries and tubes were to be left no matter how damaged they might be. I was terrified of waking up to a complete hysterectomy. An incision was made hip to hip to remove the large cysts, which at this point were slightly larger than grapefruits. When they went to remove the cysts they discovered that my tubes were twisted and tangled around them (supporting the cysts). They were so entangled that my tubes were removed with the cysts. After remembering that I specifically did not want my tubes removed, my doctor straightened them, and reattached them. When I woke up I was told that my tubes were so damaged that they would probably not be functional, but that he had put them back only because of the papers I had signed refusing to allow them to be removed. I was told that the scar tissue was bad enough I wouldn't be able to conceive.
I went in for my 6 weeks post op appointment and had been feeling pretty sick. My doctor looked completely amazed when he told me I was 4 weeks pregnant! We were told not to get our hopes up, that there was a 99% chance it was ectopic and I should consider having my tubes tied to prevent this from happening again, because if it ruptured it could kill me. We decided to 'wait' and take our chances. A month later an ultrasound was done to determine what steps to take. To everyone's amazement there was my baby ... nicely implanted in the uterus.
Kaleigh is now a beautiful 2 1/2 year old miracle! I truly believe God was with my doctor the day of my surgery. He guided his hands with every stitch, carefully replacing my tubes so that Kaleigh would make it into our lives.
Caroline M (USA)
We began trying to conceive after being married for four years. After about six months my periods became irregular and I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and absence of ovulation. My doctor told me there was no chance I'd get pregnant without help, so I was prescribed Clomid.
I began to ovulate and was very optimistic. After five months on the Clomid, however, I still was not pregnant. I was more confused, angry and hurt than ever. My husband and I felt we should pray about whether or not to continue with the medicine. Then the Lord gave me two words. The first was Isaiah 53: 4-5: “By His wounds we are healed". The second was 2 Chronicles 16:2 "Asa became diseased in his feet, and his malady was severe; yet in his disease he did not seek the Lord, but the physicians. So Asa rested with his fathers; he died in the 41st year of his reign". The Lord was clearly telling me to put my trust in Him and not the medicine. This was a personal word for me at that time, I am not against medicine and I know God uses it. It was just that my hope was in the doctors and not in the Lord and He could not bless me. So I stopped taking the medicine and decided to wait on the Lord. This was extremely difficult to do as I wanted to do anything to facilitate the process. But as I obeyed God, His peace began to fill me and guard me.
My cycles became normal and I was healed of the hormonal imbalance that had made me stop ovulating. I found myself able to trust God and focus on other things for a while. Then several of my close friends became pregnant and I crashed emotionally. I kept wavering between hope and fear. Around this time God led me to the New Life Ministries website. I was astounded to find that God's Word said, over and over, that He wanted me to have children. Once I knew it was God's will, I was able to stop wavering. I had something solid to stand on. One morning I had a huge breakthrough; the Holy Spirit came upon me in power and I knew that I needed to confess my healing and command infertility to leave my body. I stood up and spoke this out loud by the power to the Holy Spirit, and I knew that God was doing the things that I spoke. That is when I conceived my children in my spirit.
The last few months before I got pregnant were very challenging. But God gave me the grace to press on and endure and wait for the fulfilment of His promise. He also gave me a vision of my son during a special time of prayer. I knew he was coming, I just didn't know when. (Looking back, I realized that God gave me that vision the very weekend that my son was conceived!)
When my son was born, all I could think was "he was worth waiting for". God healed my body and wiped away my tears. He turned my mourning into dancing. As it says in Proverbs, "hope deferred makes the heart sick, but hope fulfilled is a tree of life." God’s Tree of Life is His cross, where we can exchange sickness and despair for healing and hope. Seek God’s face with all your heart and strength. He does fulfil the barren women's dreams; He sets us in our homes as joyful mothers of children. AMEN
Kate F (NSW, Australia) victory over multiple miscarriages
Following a prolonged illness, I was having a lot of trouble conceiving. I finally fell pregnant in October 1991 but lost the baby at five weeks. An ultrasound showed that I had a condition called Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrome in a severe state and was told by the radiologist that it would be unlikely that I would be able to conceive (even though I just had) and he was unable to explain this pregnancy. Poly cystic ovaries prevent the release of the egg from the ovary. We decided to rely on God’s Word. A friend gave me the Scripture in Exodus 23:26, "No one shall suffer miscarriage or be barren in your land; I will fulfil the number of your days".
In March 1992, I became pregnant with twins and despite miscarrying, the doctor couldn't explain how an "infertile woman" had fallen pregnant with twins. I saw another specialist in November 1992 and had a suspected miscarriage shortly afterwards - he said he couldn't do anything for me, except try hormone treatment the next time I became pregnant.
I had another two pregnancies in early 1993, both of which miscarried. Despite all this grief and disappointment, I was encouraged that by now I was falling pregnant very easily. As my husband Richard and I continued to believe and speak out God’s Word in the face of opposing circumstances our faith grew and this prevented discouragement coming to us. I know that whenever I got down or doubted that I had taken my eyes off God and His Word but when I repented and got my eyes back on God’s Word, my confidence would rise again. You must focus on what God has said and not on the circumstances in order to experience the supernatural in your life.
The next pregnancy went extremely well from the start and God blessed us exceedingly abundantly more than we could ask or think with our beautiful daughter Analise. Then eleven months later I became pregnant again with our son Michael. An ultrasound during his pregnancy showed that there was no sign of poly cystic ovaries. The radiologist was adamant that I must have been misdiagnosed originally - but we know that it was the miraculous healing power of God and His faithfulness to His promises in the Bible.
Lori (USA) - Endometriosis
In early 1996 I stopped taking the birth control pill when my husband and I finally decided to try to conceive. As time went on, my menstrual cycles became more and more irregular and painful. In 1998 I decided it was time to seek medical help. The doctor suspected that I had endometriosis and gave me the choice of having a laparoscopy or taking drugs to suppress my cycles. I decided to have a laparoscopy. He said he would do an HSG while I was under anaesthetic too. It turned out I did have some endometriosis, and a lot of adhesions. My tubes were open though. He lasered the endometriosis and adhesions and I was sent on my way.
In December 1998 I found New Life Ministries and joined their Internet support group, Women In Faith "WIF". It was such a revelation that I could stand on God's Word and take authority in it. No one had ever taught me that before. My cycles had returned to normal, and the faith of the women in WIF really built me up. In February 1999, my church had an evangelist visit and I went up for prayer one night. As she prayed for my "infertility" and laid hands on me I felt warmth in my uterine area. I believe I was wholly healed of endometriosis that night. Then in April, after 6 months, I wasn't pregnant yet, and I was very discouraged. In May 1999, unbeknown to us, our daughter was conceived. When my period was to come I had some spotting but never got my actual period. Since I had been having regular cycles I took a test, and it confirmed what I knew in my heart, I was pregnant! After waiting so long I could hardly believe it. I had no morning sickness at all during my first trimester, I was just physically tired.
In July 1999 I went to a women's conference with some ladies from my church. I was 12 weeks pregnant. On the last day of the conference as we were leaving I felt strange and decided to take a trip to the bathroom. I panicked when I saw bright red blood. I grabbed my friends and said I needed to go to the emergency room. Before we left they settled me down and prayed for me. All I could think as we were driving to see my doctor was "I trust you Lord". By the time we got to my doctor’s office the bleeding had slowed down. He ordered an ultrasound. The results showed that the baby was fine, but I had a tear in the placenta and it was laying near my cervix. I was ordered on bedrest for the weekend. I never had any problems after that, and the rest of my pregnancy was wonderful. I loved being pregnant; the time went too fast.
In January 2000, at 38 weeks, my baby was in a breech position. The doctor and I decided they would try to turn the baby and scheduled me for later that week. The doctor tried 3 times to turn the baby but to no avail, and scheduled me for a c-section the next week. At first I was disappointed that I wasn't going to have a natural birth and be able to give God glory. The c-section went very smoothly. They discovered I have a bicornuate uterus. It’s a birth defect in which the uterus is misshaped and can cause miscarriage if the embryo implants in a bad area. Why the doctors didn't catch it during the laparoscopy/HSg or on the ultrasound is beyond me. From what information I have found on bicornuate uteruses I feel so blessed and loved by God for my daughter. My recovery from the c-section surgery was easy to say the least. I had NO pain anytime afterward. Compared to the laparoscopy the recovery was 10 times easier. God's hand definitely was on me then and I do give him the glory the pain free recovery I had.
Miracle Conception - after Cancer & Chemotherapy!
After deciding to move interstate to QLD I found out I was pregnant with my second child. While I was in my last week at work during a routine 20-wk pg check up, Dr Stephen Raymond, announced I had an abnormal pregnancy. There was no baby even though I looked and felt very pregnant. I had a “hydatiform mole” (molar pregnancy). What happens after conception is that the baby eventually dies and a sack grows in the womb, which looks just like a bunch of grapes. The pregnancy had to be terminated immediately. I had to go to hospital that night for a curette. I was numb. That was just the beginning….
After the procedure, the doctors told me that the pregnancy was cancerous and had to start chemotherapy immediately. I felt very alone and the only source of strength I could find was to pray. I wasn’t particularly spiritual, I believed in God, but was very ignorant of anything after that.
We decided to continue on with our move as planned. So we drove to Queensland and I had to go straight to the hospital and start chemotherapy the very day we arrived. I met with a wonderful doctor called Dr Hitchens. He told me that my condition was very rare in Australia. Only 1% of pregnancies in Australia experience this, and only a few of them are cancerous. I then had to go into the hospital every day at exactly the same time to receive treatment. But week after week, nothing was really happening because the drug didn’t seem to be doing its job.
We soon found a great local church which taught about Jesus being our healer. I was hungry to learn and I saturated myself in this information. I also had the opportunity to go to a Christian Conference and I learnt that Jesus Christ is still alive today. I also learnt that I could just simply cry out to him and if I believed the bible and did not doubt that I could receive my healing right now - here today. I grabbed hold of that and confessed it and stood firm. I wouldn’t accept the fact that God had given me a beautiful baby boy and husband only to be told I was going to die. I knew that he wanted me to stand firm and believe for healing. And that is exactly what I did.
The days turned into weeks, the weeks turned into months but I just knew, that I knew, that I would receive healing. However, one weekend while we were out at lunch I had a haemorrhage and was rushed to hospital. I ended up having three blood transfusions and more drugs. But even through all of this I just knew I was going to be OK. A supernatural peace was with me continually.
I then had to go to the hospital a couple of times a week to receive chemotherapy. This went on for several weeks - going to the hospital then to the pathology lab to check my blood hormone levels to see if the chemotherapy was working. Then in addition to this I had to visit the specialist to explain my progress. These weekly visits were very expensive and we weren’t covered for any of it. This was a very testing time for us in more ways than one! During one of the visits to the specialist he announced that the tumour had started growing through to other organs in my body. I was then admitted into hospital to have extensive chemotherapy. The strongest type available! I was told that the side effects were nausea, hair loss and fatigue. After the treatment I was sent home with anti nausea medicine to rest for a few days with my family. The amazing thing was that we prayed that not only would I be totally healed but that I would not experience any sickness. I never had to take any of the nausea pills. While I felt tired and had a horrible metallic taste in my mouth and my mouth and eyes dried out from the medication, I never got sick. Praise the Lord!
Then one Sunday at church during the praise and worship I had another massive haemorrhage and was rushed to hospital. The whole back seat of the car was completely soaked in blood, and the stain is still there to this day. Once at the hospital in the emergency room, all I can remember was seeing buckets full of blood and clots, and then I passed out. My husband and a close friend were also in the room with me. On this occasion I died because the heart monitor flat lined. At that point my husband was asked to leave the room. But he along with a friend prayed and the Dr’s managed to get my pulse back. I was then given more blood transfusions. What happened next was amazing. When I was tested to see how the cancer levels were going the doctors were amazed because the tumour had gone! The tumour had extracted itself out of my body. The Dr’s were stunned because they had never seen this before. It was unheard of. Even though the tumour was gone I had to continue with the chemotherapy because my blood still had traces of cancer. However, I continued treatment for only a short time as the levels quickly dropped to zero.
After all of this was over, the Dr’s asked us to go to The Royal Women’s Hospital in Brisbane where we were introduced to a panel of the top oncology doctors in the area. They wanted to know why this happened, as they had never seen anything like this before. They were very perplexed because what had happened was medically impossible. My husband explained that we were Christians who believed in a healing Jesus. They were stunned and said ‘Well your God is bigger than our medicine’. After scratching their heads and asking several questions they let us go home.
My testimony doesn’t end there! Even though I was completely healed and well I still had to go back to Dr Hickens for my final report. He told me on that day, “well you may be healed, and you are a very lucky girl, however you will never have children”. This was because I had been treated with the strongest type of chemotherapy available. And this meant that my reproduction organs would never work again. Regardless, we knew that our God was bigger than that! So needless to say we didn’t believe what the doctor said. We just smiled and shook that comment off. And to the doctors total amazement I was found to be pregnant a few months later. I then went on to have a beautiful healthy baby boy called Matt which means (a gift from God), and then fifteen months later we had our final baby ‘Charlie’ also a beautiful healthy baby boy. He has been a great blessing to our family and both boys to this day are very close.
Jesus said “I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.” (see John 14:12-14). The authority of Jesus has been passed down to us so we can pray for the Holy Spirit to help us for whatever need we have. If you believe and do not doubt in your heart then you will receive your promise if it lines up with the word of God. That is a promise in the bible, (see Mark 11:22-25). God is not a respecter of persons (see Acts 10:34) so that means that anyone of His children can trust His word for their own personal circumstances and see it come to pass!
Pregnancy Announcements (Brief Testimonies)
On 24th June 2008 Heather wrote: Hello all, I just wanted to share with you all an update on my pregnancy. Everything is going great with baby and me. We had a recent ultrasound and found out that we're having a boy - which surprised us both. But back in 2003, I had a miscarriage and during that time, I could feel the baby's spirit. A very small little voice said to me, "momma, I'll be back." I prayed and tested the Spirit and the Holy Spirit confirmed that it was indeed my child's spirit. It was a little boy's voice so this pregnancy and finding out we're having a boy is confirmation of that. God is good! I have only shared that with a few people, including my family, who believe the same way. I know that I can share it with this group and that is WONDERFUL! Right now, I'm 20 weeks along and my doctor is so relaxed in each of my appointments. I prayed for all of the medical staff and others to have the mind of Christ. I also prayed for this blessed child to be perfect and whole and he is! I have another ultrasound tomorrow to finish up his scan. He's sitting low (I'm 5'8") and was pretty relaxed during the ultrasound so the technician didn't get all of his measurements. Just another excuse to see him! :)
Thank you to all of you for your continued prayers! I have a feeling the next four months are going to fly by. God bless! Heather
On 24th May 2008 Mama Vee wrote: We had our 1st ultrasound today and we are praising God that our baby is doing fine. We found out a month ago about our confirmed pregnancy and continued to get great progress results thereafter. I had a small scare at 4½ weeks but found out our baby was fine and the bleeding I experienced was normal in early pregnancy and the cramping I felt was due to a possible hernia (which I will need surgery after the baby is born). During that time I asked Nerida to stand in agreement with me that all would be well and it has, continues to be and I know it shall be. Thank you again Ned. I am almost 7 weeks and we will be released from my RE to a wonderful OB/Gyn in 2 weeks when we have our 2nd sonogram. We were able to see and hear our baby’s heartbeat. We have been praising God all day. My husband continues to state how good God has been to us and that doesn’t even begin to describe in FULL detail how good God has been. As most of you know we have been in this fertility journey for almost 13 years, had 2 laps to repair my fallopian tubes, have had numerous pelvic infections-then ultimately had to have both fallopian tubes removed, 1 failed IUI, 1 failed IVF, suffered hyper stimulation and hospitalized for 5 days due to the OHSS, just disappointment after disappointment. But through it all still trusting and believing in God. John and I will continue to trust in Him until the day we die. God has never failed us. So before becoming pregnant, I prayed all the time and now? Oh my goodness I pray even more. The fight is not finished once you become pregnant. If anything I am praying and fighting more now with my baby in my womb. I thank God for I know with Jesus I have the victory. And what a sweet victory it is. We solicit your continued prayers at this time for a successful pregnancy. God has not given us a spirit of fear and now that we are almost over the finish line we will not and shall not faint. Oh I forgot to mention Sunday is my 36th b-day and seeing my baby this weekend has been an awesome birthday gift from the Lord. Thank you ladies in advance. Much love. God bless. Vee aka Mama Vee
Birth Anouncements (Brief Testimonies)
Sylvett P writes: I was blessed to find myself pregnant after being a member of WIF for a short period of time. I suffered with guilt associated with my infertility as I thought I was being punished for sins. With the help of WIF members, I was able to remove the blockage and to gain the knowledge that I was already healed and just needed to be faithful and that it was God’s will for ALL women to conceive their own biological children – I would meditate on Gods Word and remain faithful, and it was at the point I became pregnant! And early Father’s Day, 17 June 2007, I gave birth to our son, Christopher Shane. He was 21 inches and weighed 7 lb 1 oz. He is beautiful and a joy to his father and me.
Brandi writes: My husband and I lost our first baby at 9 weeks. It then took 3 years to conceive. I thought we had given it to God a long time ago, but I was still relying on man in some ways – medicines to regulate my ovulation, etc. I finally gave up on man after he gave up on me and the doctor said the only way I would get pregnant would be to do IVF. I decided that my God was bigger than that, and He proved true! My husband began laying hands on me and praying for my body to function according to God's perfect plan. Within 2 weeks of prayer, I ovulated and conceived! It was truly a miracle!! Samuel (which means ‘asked of God’) arrived 9 April 2007 at 2.45 pm, weighing 7 lb 5 oz and 20 inches long. Just to encourage you – lift up your very specific prayer requests and watch God honour them in greater detail than you can ever think to provide!!
April (Australia) writes: I asked you to pray (less than one year ago) for my girlfriend Joanne (who was told by the doctors she would never conceive) and another friend of mine named Leisa who was also told the same. Well, I am pleased to say praise God that Joanne delivered a healthy baby girl on 15 October 2006 and I have just heard that Leisa has also had a healthy baby girl today, 26th Nov 2006 at 1 pm.
Viviene (UK) writes: My sister-in-law gave birth 13 July 2006 – a healthy baby girl of 6.5 lb. It is amazing what God can do. She was 45 years old in December 2005 and this is her first baby. She had been diagnosed with a high prolactin level. The doctors put her on some medication which had really bad side effects so she came off it. Anyway, when she got pregnant, they found that she had fibroids and were talking about the baby coming very early with a strong possibility of a C-section. Well, she had the baby at 38 weeks – they actually had to induce her. She also had the baby naturally. She had a very quick labour which was not what the doctors had told her.
General Healing Testimonies (cysts, cycles, Endo, PCOS etc)
Praise the Lord with me for His mercies and goodness endureth forever. I asked for prayer against a 7.8cm ovarian cyst last October. I went for a scan today and the cyst has disappeared. I did not take any medicine nor did I do surgery. The Lord is good and He does wonders. He'll do same for all that we desire and ask of Him.
Albertina S writes Oct'09:
Dear sisters, an encouragement to all with cysts: I remember speaking to someone about cysts recently (Ify) and saying that I had 7 of them 4 on one ovary and 3 on the other and they were big... Well, this is just to let you know that I am coming from the Dr. and the sonar showed that they are all gone. My ovaries are back to normal shape. Praise be to God.
Verli from Indonesia, Aug'09 writes:
To make my email short :D, last Tuesday (11/08/09), doctor has confirmed that I am pregnant. Thank God, I am 6 weeks pregnant now. Finally, God answer our prayers just in the right time, close to our 6 years wedding anniversary (next October). It is such a miracle for us. About 6 months ago, one doctor that told us if we only had 3% of chance to get pregnant without any operation ( I was diagnosed with endometriosis). He suggested me a laparoscopy & GnRH agonists treatment for 6 months (3 months prior to surgery and 3 month after the surgery). And he also said that during the treatment, no hope for me to be pregnant in 2009. It was a devastating situation for us. However, I don't have any surgery. Beyond all our understanding, God make a way where there seems to be no way. Praise the lord.
Rosnah H from UK writes July'09:
I was married 4 years ago and tried for a baby for 3 years. I am now 24 weeks pregnant. We never found out if we had a medically diagnosed problem because I was led to Nerida's teaching just as we were thinking of starting the process of tests. But I can testify to miraculous physical healing of depression and a chronic back condition, as well as conceiving. Just want to encourage you from my experience that nothing is impossible - including coming back from the lowest of low mental and physical states and seeing all your heart's desires fulfilled. We have a high priest in Jesus who sympathises with our weaknesses as he was tempted in every way we are, only he did not sin (Heb 4:15). Isaiah 42 says that Jesus was not disheartened or crushed and it this Spirit that He sends to comfort and uphold us.
Hwee Leng from Singapore wrote: May'09
I have chronic headaches since I was less than 10. It got worse in my 30s as I am plagued with severe headache before my ovulation and period. The one thing I never leave home without is my advil pain killers. I never dared to go without the painkillers even when I prayed to God for relief. In fact, at one point, I gave up because I realised the more I pray to God for relief, the worse the pain gets!
Lately, since I have been on WIF, hearing how one of the sisters sharing about being a little commander, commanding sickness out of her body, i did the same too. Each time I feel the ache coming, i commanded it to go away. One day, I took the step of faith and said I will not take my pain killer. I will see how long I can sustain the pain. Praise be to the Lord, the pain went away after I commanded it too, it was not immediate. It took quite a while before it did. But bottom line is that it DID! I am so happy to share that I did not have any headache this month before my ovulation nor period. In fact, I am having my period now. Of course, disappointment follows the period (as it means i am not pregnant), but I remind myself of this battle that has been won for me, and am sure the one for my babies will come to pass too.
So, Guess what? God is amazing not that any of us doubted that! The blood clot(Subchrroinic Hematoma) was GONE!!!! GONE GONE GONE!!!! The baby was perfect. Beautiful face, pudgy arms and legs, perfect heartbeat! I'm just in awe! I am 10wks now and everything looks wonderful. Oh and the final thing that amazes me! I don't feel pregnant at all! Other than being a bit more tired I wouldn't even know. Its so strange but I feel not only fine but wonderful! The Doc even said I could get back to jogging if I want to. We told our adoption agency that we're expecting and they were less than impressed. I spent over 10 minutes convincing her that we'd be alright before I even heard a "Congrats". I was not happy with how she reacted. For those that don't really know, we're adopting (hopefully) 2 boys ages 4 and 6 and we're waiting on the paperwork to get done. She went on to tell me 2 horror stories of other clients she's working with right now. Is she trying to scare me away from adopting now that we're expecting? I don't have any fears about this but apparently she does!
Rannie Feb’09 writes:
My husband and I have been believing God for the manifestation of our children for 4 years now. It didn't start out with us believing. It started out with a lot of pain and hurt and a diagnosis of PCOS. Since then I've had the diagnoses of elevated testosterone, abnormally shaped ovaries, an abnormally small uterus, insulin resistance, hypothyroidism and endometiosis. I would get my period about four times a year, and that was when I took the progesterone supplements to get it to return. When I did get my period it lasted for 12 days, sometimes I spotted for even 18 days I remember. I remember the difficulty of this time and all the tears I shed, all the times I cried out to God because I couldn't understand why He didn't allow me to get pregnant and allow me to have a child like He said in his will.
Anyway, I got a word from God that we shouldn't give up and decide to figure out what the word said concerning my healing. I didn't know where to start, but in the beginning of 2007 I found this support group and Nerida's website (New Life Ministries) and devoured it. I'll be honest and say that I didn't really get the full revelation of it at first, and I continued to struggle. In the beginning of 2008 I got my first break through, however. I started reading the word and devouring any scriptures that I could find on healing, meditating on them, studying them for days at a time and I slowly but surely got more and more understanding concerning what Jesus did on the cross for me. You see, He purchased my sins and my sickness all at the same time, and redeemed me from the both of them in a packaged deal. Glory to God! I'm free from sin and sickness, illness and disease. Once I really grabbed a hold of this, I began to see a change in my body. I began to speak to my body with confidence and not fear. Today my sisters, I don't only get my period on time, but I get it every 29 days without fail. I can time it right down to the time of day that it will come. I know when I'm ovulating and my periods are pain free, no cramps or unusually heavy and long flows like I used to have. My periods are a total of 6 days. Even though I was getting my period every month I was spotting for a week before my period came and a few days after. I did some research on different things I could do to help it but decided to just speak to my body and command my uterus to function properly and not to break down early. The spotting stopped and has never returned. Glory to God!
I got the revelation that healed women have babies. I was so blessed when weeks later I saw that same message being spoken here in the group. My husband and I were faced once again in the beginning of this year with the possibility of seeking medical treatment, but decided once and for all to trust God. You see, I've received healing of endo, pcos, insulin resistance, ovarian cysts and every other negative word spoken over me by a doctor in my life. I don't even take the medication any more. My skin is even clearing up because I speak to it in the name of Jesus.
Now, we're awaiting the arrival of our blessing from the Lord. My registry is set up and we're proclaiming the word whenever we get the chance. Now when people ask us if we have children, we say yes because it would be a lie to say that we don't have them and the WORD OF GOD SAYS THAT WE DO! The MINUTE we pray in faith and agreement with the word and pray for children, in the Spirit its done. Its lining up with the word of God, getting our souls and minds in agreement with the word that takes time. God gives the increase immediately so its not HIS fault that our children haven't manifested yet. He's provided them already and everything that's needed to bring them into this earth.
