    God has been good to me since I was born again and spirit filled in 1975. My wife and I have seen many signs, miracles and wonders these past 45 years. So, I will try to be brief. I made a decision to attend Charis Bible College Minneapolis at age 59. I had accomplished every goal I had in my life. I needed a new goal. I decided to attend CBC part time over 4 years, and after I retire from work, I would go into ministry. I had planned to work another 5 years after graduating from CBC. But less than a year after graduation, I had a stroke. My wife asked everyone at the ER to give us a few minutes alone. She prayed over me. After that, I was wheeled to have MRI and CT scans done. Later the neurologist came in with the results. He showed the images showing damage of the brain. He then said I had the stroke 10 days ago. I said, no doc, it was 30 minutes ago. I did not understand what happened till the next morning when I was reading in Mark. Mark 7:25-30 (KJV) 25 For a certain woman, whose young daughter had an unclean spirit, heard of him, and came and fell at his feet: 26 The woman was a Greek, a Syrophenician by nation; and she besought him that he would cast forth the devil out of her daughter. 27 But Jesus said unto her, Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it unto the dogs. 28 And she answered and said unto him, Yes, Lord: yet the dogs under the table eat of the children's crumbs. 29 And he said unto her, For this saying go thy way; the devil is gone out of thy daughter. 30 And when she was come to her house, she found the devil gone out, and her daughter laid upon the bed. It was then I remember a teaching I heard many years ago about different kinds of healings. The healing in Mark is called a “cure”, which is a healing where the root cause of the illness is removed. The root cause, the devil, was removed, and the daughter recovered. It was then I realized the root cause of the stroke was removed. The doctors performed many more tests, trying to find what caused the stroke. They will never be able to find it. The best they can say it happened 10 days ago. I ended up retiring earlier than planned. My health is improving. Now I spend a good portion of every day reading scripture, listening to Andrew on Gospel Truth using Roku, studying the word, and putting together teachings on what I learned. I am able to continue the habits I started while attending CBC. One of the things I’m thankful for is alumni can listen to new CBC classes, that was added after graduation. My wife and my calling is to run bible studies at our home and the home of others. We have been doing Charis Bible Studies for 3 years. We are currently running Healing University as a group. If anyone at Charis is thinking about CBS, I strongly recommend them to look at the website, and meet with someone in your area who is running CBS. That is what I did and got some invaluable advice. For 5 years we ran bible studies at an assistant living home. I always thank the people attending for allowing us to share the Word of God in their home. That is our mission.
