For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9:6

Dear Friend,

Our relationship with God is certainly the most precious treasure that we possess. If Jesus is indeed the way, the truth and the life, then a life lived apart from Him is neither true nor real. Such is simply a farce, a sham, a mask covering what could be. If all things were created by Him, through Him and for Him, then without Him there can be no meaningful existence. If all things consist in Him, cohering and being held together by Him, then should our relationship with Him weaken and break, our lives will quickly fall into shambles. If He is indeed the light of the world, then all is darkness, gloom and depression without Him. Surely, we cannot afford to take our eyes off of our Saviour for a single instant!

Below you will read the touching story of Girly Nobela, a 56-year-old mother of three who experienced the wonder-working power of God in her life. Believing that Jesus would intervene in her situation, she received both salvation and healing from the hand of God, a glorious double-portion of the miraculous.

Yours in Him,

Tamryn Klintworth


Growing up in a family who believed in ancestral worship, Girly has always believed in a higher power, a truth deeper than what was in front of her. By the grace of God, Girly married a man who was saved and together, they raised their children to believe in Jesus. She however, needed something of her own to believe in.

Suffering from chronic pains in her right shoulder, chest, lungs and throat, Girly desperately needed healing. However, beyond her need for physical deliverance, was her hunger to know Jesus personally. Determined to encounter Him, she made her way to the crusade ground. On listening to the Gospel message, her desperation reached its peak. Rushing forward when the invitation was made, she surrendered her life to Jesus.

One night was not enough for Girly, she returned the next evening to learn more of Jesus. After receiving prayer, she was completely healed of all her pains. “I always said to myself that if only I could serve the God my children are serving, I will get healed. I used to feel so much pain, sometimes I could barely sleep, but now, God has healed me!”

Having been born again, Girly is determined to share her testimony with her unsaved relatives and make them see the truth. “I used to go from doctor to doctor but no-one could do anything for me. All the treatments I used would work momentarily, but the pains would always come back again. Now I have found my doctor. God has healed me and I am so grateful!”

Glory be to our Jesus!  Once again He has proved that anything is possible, if we just believe.
