MARCH 2010

Pamela Strawn was diagnosed with a pituitary tumor that was growing just below the brain in her head in 1991. She had known that this small tumor was there but was treatable with medications. From 1991 until 2009, it had appeared to have shrunk or at least stayed the same size. However, over the last three to four years, she had been getting numerous migraine headaches that made her way of life very difficult. These headaches would sometimes last three and four days long. This continual problem with the migraines prompted many doctor visits and then finally a brain scan. In late 2009, she was told by doctors after looking over the brain scan that the pituitary tumor was growing. It was unknown as to whether or not this was contributing to the headaches. There was some concern to the doctors as to “why” this tumor had started growing again. It seemed as if she was definitely going to face a very dangerous surgery to remove this tumor. However, according to the bible, those who serve the Lord with their whole heart, soul, mind, and strength have promises from God concerning our health and welfare. Isaiah said it best in Isaiah 53, “by his stripes we are healed”. In the New Testament, the bible teaches that God would provide “our needs according to his riches in glory…” Pam through faith in the ministry was anointed and prayed for by the elders of the church. James said in his book that “the prayer of faith would save the sick…” Pam went to see some specialists at Emory University Hospital in Decatur, Georgia in the beginning of 2010. After further diagnosis, they told her that “the tumor appears to have ruptured and the body is absorbing the blood.” Surgery would not be required and she would recover. As time has gone on, it is now March and the headaches are getting fewer and fewer. Each headache seems to take less time to heal. It would appear that a “divine” healing has taken place and Jesus Christ through his precious blood and sacrifice on the cross has touched Pamela in a mighty way. To God Be the Glory!
