Sis. Rhonda Baker after God healed her cracked rib.

In March of 2012 I was suffering severe pain in my side.  It hurt to move my arm.  At this point in time I wasn't too concerned over what was going on.  I thought maybe I just had a pulled muscle or pinched nerve.  When the pain was not subsiding, I decided the best way to take care of it, was ignore it and pretend it isn't there.  Including trying my best to not let people see the pain I was in.  Pretty much a couple of months had passed and inside I was getting concerned.  I did confide in a close friend of mine and she asked me if I was concerned it was cancer coming back.  I told her that my flesh was concerned, but I had to hold on to the promise God had given me after my last bout of cancer.  God had spoken not only to me, but to a good friend of mine and the preacher who was preaching that same evening at church.  June of 2005.  God had promised through all three people, in one evening, that I would not have to deal with cancer again.  I held onto that promise, but deep inside I was battling the thought that I might have cancer again.  Due to the urging of another friend who noticed my grimace, trying to hide my pain, she encouraged me to go to the doctor to find out what was going on and why I was in pain.  I went to my family practitioner and he ordered an x-ray.  I received a phone call a couple of days later from the doctor's office.  I was informed that they saw "suspicious lesions" on my rib cage and that they are referring me to my oncologist.  As you can well understand, that made my heart start to race.  After I got off the phone, I immediately went in and prayed trusting God that His word is true.  About this time, our church was getting ready to go to Family Camp in Ventura.  The travel down there had me in quite a bit of pain.  During Bro. Lambeth's preaching, the Holy Ghost was moving so strong.  I was worshiping and praising God, even though the pain was very distracting.  I rebuked the pain and focused on giving God the glory.  Unbeknownst to me, when we left for lunch after service, I didn't even realize I was moving my arm around without pain.  When it dawned on me, I started pumping air I was so excited.  My pastor was sitting at the same table with Pastor Klann.  He leaned in and explained to Pastor Klann what was going on.  I was able to give God the glory for the healing he wrought in me.  When I went to bed that night I slept pain free for the first time in months.  On arrival back home, I had my appointment with my oncologist.  She had ordered an MRI previously before I left for camp.  In the follow - up appointment, she diagnosed it as a cracked rib.  She asked me how on earth I was able to move about freely because the crack was quite extensive.  She indicated that a crack like that takes up to 6 weeks to heal.  I testified to her about God's healing touch.  This time, she just looked at me and smiled.  This is the same oncologist that I testified to about God healing my cancer back in 2004.  God is so gracious and merciful to me.  I love Him so much.  There is nothing my God cannot and will not do.  Sis.
