A friend of mine first told me about Caroline about a year ago. I had never heard of her or her teachings and at the time was so preoccupied with work and life demands to make time to go hear her teach. When she came again, again I was unable to attend due to other obligations. When she came in August this year, I made sure I was there.
You see, for 15+ years I dealt with uncontrollable pain in my body as well as dairy allergies and gluten allergies. I had been told by doctors (yes that is plural) I had Fibromyalgia, though none of the medications offered any relief. Then another doctor would say no I didn't have Fibromyalgia, and would proceed to make me feel like I was making it all up. So not only was I in physical pain, I was being convinced I was losing my mind too. The pain was so intense at times I wouldn't get out of bed for days except to soak in a hot bath in hopes of obtaining some relief. I altered my diet on so many levels, it was like jumping through hoops just to try to piece together a meal. Planning and shopping was eating more of my time than I was actually eating. Earlier this year I received a diagnosis that I had rheumatoid arthritis. I thought finally, something that makes sense, I will be able to get real help and not be looked at or talked to like I was making something up. My appointment to see the rheumatologist wasn't until September though! That was perfect timing for God.
The day I met Caroline, in late August of this year, I had never heard her teach, or her testimony. So for a minute, I was a little skeptical until she began to teach on God's love and healing. She began to say things like "seeing myself in the image of Jesus", "Wouldn't it be great to receive prayer for healing and truly walk away with results?", and then my favorite "You will have to let go of everything you know about nutrition and supplements!" That really got me, that statement alone lifted the burden I picked up years ago of studying food and supplements.
As she began to pray for me, I could feel the pain leave my body. It felt as though I had been in a vice or several that caused pain throughout my body. I felt loose and light. Praise God, I still feel that way! She then asked if I wanted to get rid of my food allergies. I laughed, because I thought, "well, I've learned to manage life around that", which is ridiculous thinking. She prayed for my food allergies and other than the presence of the Lord, I didn't really feel anything because I wasn't having symptoms at the time. I knew when I left I had experienced true healing. I've been prayed for many times before, but never walked away with the goods exactly. Later that afternoon, my daughter invited me to enjoy a bowl of ice cream with her. I didn't give it a second thought, I just started eating! After about the third or fourth bite, I thought, I would normally be getting sick right about now, but I didn't. So I finished my ice cream and enjoyed the rest of the afternoon. When dinner time came, I ate a roll with my dinner and didn't have any symptoms after that either! It was wonderful, two of my favorite things in one day! Neither of which I had enjoyed in years!
I am enjoying growing and learning from listening to Caroline's teachings! I praise God to have met her. Years ago, when I first started listening to Andrew Wommack, I prayed and asked the Lord to please send someone from this ministry to our town to teach us. Caroline has attended CBC and now has her own ministry, which in essence all of it (Andrew's, Caroline's, anyone who truly serves) is God's ministry. So that is another answered prayer! I look forward to when she can come back again and minister!
