After dating my husband for four years, he proposed to me in 1999. While I was excited, I was concerned about my inability to have children. I told him that I didn't want to marry him because I couldn't have children. He told me that he loved me and GOD will make a way. Before I accepted his marriage proposal, we decided to go to the doctor and explore our options. The doctor told us that I didn't have any ovaries and it would be impossible to have a child. I was so hurt and didn't know what to do. I called Bishop Way and he immediately prayed for me and gave me spiritual guidance. A few days later, the doctor called me about my test results. She said something is wrong. My hormone levels were that of someone that had ovaries. They performed another sonogram and my ovaries were there! She was speechless because they weren't there when she performed my first sonogram. She ran some additional tests and confirmed that I was indeed able to conceive and carry a child to term.
After thoroughly examining the test results and conferring with other doctors, she told me I had hypothalamic amenorrhea. I researched my diagnosis on the Internet and I found a research study group, federally-funded by NIH, that specialized in hypothalamic amenorrhea. I spoke to the Chief of Staff at Massachusetts General Hospital and he flew us to Boston for a week to run some additional tests. The tests confirmed that I had a GnRH deficiency related to hypothalamic amenorrhea. Because of the birth defect, my body doesn't produce GnRH on its own. In order for me to get pregnant, they hooked me up to a small external GnRH pump to stimulate my ovaries with synthethic GnRH. My body responded to the synthethic GnRH and I got pregnant immediately! My daughter, BreeAhna Danielle Woodard, was born on August 18, 2009. Here's a link to my daughter's website: http://breeahnawoodard.shutterfly.com.
As Bishop Way stated to me eleven years ago, GOD had his hand up my dress. Yes, he really told me that (smile)! I had to learn the hard way that everything happens in GOD's time (not my time). I questioned GOD a few times but everything worked out for the best. If you're going through a similar situation, you need to seek spiritual guidance and PRAY. You might not get an answer right away but don't get discouraged. If it's meant for you, then it will be for you. Don't look at your surroundings, just keep your eye on the prize. GOD does answer prayers!
Do You Believe In Miracles?
We purchased a home in 1997. We had two children and one on the way. We both were working at this time. A couple of years later we were expecting again. However, when my youngest son was born he had complications which forced my wife to resign. For the most part, the mortgage and bills were being maintained from my husband’s income. During the 6th year things were getting a little tight and we were introduced to refinancing. We refinanced our home with consolidation of bills and even received some cash. A couple of years went by and we needed some major home improvements, an automobile, and more debt consolidation. Therefore, we refinanced again, thinking this would help our financial situation. Instead, we were deeper in debt and our mortgage payments ballooned to $2,100.00 a month. At this time things were tough. Late fees were adding up, bills were high and we were treading water. The mortgage company was threatening us and even sent someone to the home to strong arm us for collection. My husband and I continued to pray asking God for relief. One day we decided that in addition to praying we would start believing God for the ridiculous. The mortgage company called one day to threaten us again and my husband told them they could have the house because God had something better for us. Next, thing we knew we were getting a call from a lender stating they wanted to help us with a stimulus package. We had been deceived in our past loans and did not readily accept his proposition. In this package they vowed to erase over $125,000.00 in debt, plus give us $10,000.00 to put in an escrow for a contractor to do some home improvements. At this point, all we can say is the loan officer is still scratching his head. This brings us to this song, which will forever ring in our hearts.
(You can’t tell us God won’t make a way for us. We know He Can and we know He did). Miracles do happen!

"real testimony real praise"
I was born with a cleft lip and palate. I've had extensive facial surgeries from birth up until age 16. At birth, the doctors told my parents that I would develop much slower than children in my age group. My parents refused to believe the doctors and continued to love and treat me like a normal child. I was NEVER a slow learner and excelled through school with straight A's and B's. I was actually more advanced than children in my age group. The doctors were amazed at my progress, especially since they thought I would be a slow learner!

God Is a Healer...By his Blood I am healed
My name is Pavlova Cheatham, on June 18, 2010; I went in to the emergency room because I was suffering from severe abdominal pain. I was diagnose with an Ectopic Pregnancy, and had internal bleeding and if I would have waited any longer it would have been too late. After God guided their hands onto stabilizing me, they had said that I had abnormal results in my blood and other tests. They proceeded to repeat the tests and I had to follow up with my doctor.
On June 21th, 2010, my doctor called me and said that my test came back and that I had to get a Biopsy done because he believed I had Cancer. My husband and I are believers of Gods power and healing, we believe that prayers changes things and that if you trust him enough to leave everything in his hands, God will honor it. We immediately call our Bishop and he prayed and believed that whatever the doctors had said, God already knew. I went and had my Biopsy done and the results were indeed that I had Stage 1 Cancer and they had scheduled my surgery for July 26, 2010. As you can imagine our emotions and thoughts were everywhere. My Husband held my Hand and said to me “You know that our Doctor is Jesus, all we have to do now is take these results and leave to him”. I prayed and prayed, and asked God to do his will, and that I knew that he was not going to give me more than I could bear. We had our Sunday service on June 27th, 2010. I praised God and surrender my body and emotions to God, and along with my mother’s and husband and my entire church families prayer, I believed that GOD had put his hand inside of me and removed the cancer! After that moment I felt a peace and knew that God had taken care of it. Bishop looked straight into my eyes and said “God has Healed You”. The very next day I had my labs done again because it was part of my procedure prior to the surgery. On Tuesday morning my doctor call back and says that something is not right with my labs, that EVERYTHING was NORMAL! No signs of cancer or anything wrong. He said that in his 20yrs of working as a doctor he never seen anything like this. I immediately start thanking my God! I told the doctor that it was my god that had healed me. He said that he was Jewish but that he certainly believed what I was saying cause there was no other way that could have happened.
This is one of my many testimonies. Believe in your heart that our God is a Healer, which he already knows what’s going to happen before you know. He has prepared you ahead of time, you just don’t know until the situation comes your way. There is no way the will of God will take you where his Grace won’t keep you. Now I will continue to say Psalms 23; the Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want, he restoreth my soul; for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff comfort me; thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
