Countdown

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen..

Hebrews 11:1

After receiving the news of a medical issue, this sister’s confession is a good reminder that it's not a matter of if, but just a matter of when His Word is fulfilled in our lives.

It was on the 29th of December 2014 in Arusha (a city in northern Tanzania) during my husband's December vacation, when I went to see an optician doctor, who examined my eyes and said I had a fully matured cataract in both eyes. We had only a week left before our departure for Dar es Salaam.

The doctor/optician further said I needed an urgent eye operation, because there was a very little space left around the retina, and when that little space is covered up, I would be completely blind. I told the doctor that I was not scared, and I don’t want to be scared. The doctor responded that, “You don’t have to, but make sure you see a specialist as soon as you get in Dar es Salaam for an operation.” She then gave me a reference note to give to the eye specialist in an “eyes specialized hospital.”

When we came back to VGR office, I asked Br. Mbise for a prayer cloth from VGR-Tanzania office on the 7th January 2015, prayed, and used it as per instruction letter by our beloved Brother Branham.

After that, I believed and told my husband that my healing is undergoing a "countdown process," and that it has started counting down towards zero.

After three weeks I went to that eye specialized hospital in Dar es Salaam. Here I went through a thorough examination of three different doctors, and the final doctor told me this, ”You have a bit of cataract problem starting in your eyes, but this is very little, you do not need an operation, we will only change the lenses of your spectacles and see you after one year.”

THEN I REMEMBERED THE COUNTDOWN OF MY HEALING.

I believe it is going to zero. Here I am, PRAISING THE NAME OF THE LORD.

Sis. Elly Mbise,

Dar es Salaam, Tanzania
