I’ve been struggling with Eosinophilic Esophagitis, multiple food allergies, and even more food sensitivities for over thirteen years now. When I first sought help, the diagnosis was not a familiar concept for most medical professionals, and doctors struggled to identify and present a treatment plan for the problem. At the same time, I was heavily bullied for the majority of my life, especially in school, and lived most days feeling unloved and unwanted. I carried those negative feelings with me like heavy chains when I graduated college. Even though I was no longer in school, the chains I carried seemed to get heavier and I sank deeper into my depression.

When I attended the healing service at Encounter NW, I was prayed over for the healing of allergies, the esophagus, and autoimmune disorders. Upon Father Thelen’s command for my organs to function properly, I felt a warmth in my heart and the sensation that weights had been dropped from my shoulders. Never in my life have I felt so full of love and joy and truly grateful for the many blessings God has put in my life. I have been healed of a few of my food allergies, with the rest currently being tested. My depression is completely gone, and I have not stopped smiling since Encounter, which is something I thought was impossible given my previous outlook on life.
Thank you, Encounter Ministries, for brining me back to my faith and reminding me that I am a beloved and wanted child of God.
