Leo Whiltshire: A Healing Encounter

By Sheryl Fountain
The 700 Club – "I noticed that I kept waking up during the course of the night. I had a sharp pain in my lower abdomen that was quite unusual. I just kept deteriorating and almost past out. That’s when my wife said, 'That’s it. You’re going to the doctor.'”

At the hospital, the doctor diagnosed Leo Whiltshire with diverticulitus, an inflamation of the colon.

"He said I was going to come through from it. They were going to treat me with antibotics, but he said if I had been brought to the hospital so much as three hours later, it was possible I could have died from it."

Several days later, Leo was released from the hospital, but he continued to have severe pain in his abdomen.

He says, "I had more of my strength back, but it was still a considerable amount of pain that I was dealing with."

One morning, Leo turned on The 700 Club.

"A little more than half way through it, Gordon and Terry announced that they were going to say a pray for the sick," Leo says, "I decided I would say the prayer with them, and I did. As the prayer was coming to an end, all of a sudden, it felt like something was reaching into me and pulling the pain out of my body. Almost in an instance the pain was gone."

After his healing, Leo went back to work completely pain free, and his life has never been the same.

"I have always been a thankful person, but I am even more thankful that I get more time here and more time with my wife. I’m a lot more thankful. For me this healing encounter with the Holy Spirit was just a powerful, life-changing experience."
