A CONGENITAL HEART DISEASE HEALED AFTER EMBARKING ON THE UNITY 40 DAYS FASTING AND PRAYER

Mrs. Amukelani Chauke has witnessed the power of God through the Unity 40 Days Fasting and Prayer. She has seen the Lord healing her son and changing the doctor’s report. The Unity 40 Days Fasting and Prayer is a time where saints spend time in the presence of God. When they are beholding Him, all the things which were tormenting and bothering them lets them loose. All those who seriously seek God during such prayer times always come back with testimonies.

When Mrs. Chauke’s new born son turned five months old, he began to have a constant cough. Mrs. Chauke consulted several medical practitioners concerning her son’s condition and they would give her medication to use. The medication did not improve her son’s condition. He was later referred to the hospital where he was diagnosed with truncus arteriosus which falls under congenital heart diseases. Truncus arteriosus is a birth defect of the heart. It occurs when the blood vessel coming out of the heart in the developing baby fails to separate during development, leaving a connection between the aorta and pulmonary artery. This condition often causes a hole between the bottom two chambers of the heart called a ventricular septal defect. Mrs. Chauke’ son also had a hole between his heart chambers.

In cases where a baby is without a congenital heart defect, the right side of the heart pumps oxygen-poor blood through the pulmonary artery to the lungs. The left side of the heart pumps oxygen-rich blood through the aorta to the rest of the body. However, in cases where a baby suffers from truncus arteriosus, oxygen-poor blood and oxygen-rich blood are mixed together as blood flows to the lungs and the rest of the body. As a result, too much blood goes to the lungs and the heart works harder to pump blood to the rest of the body.

Mrs. Chauke’ son was admitted in hospital and put on treatment for five weeks as the condition was life-threatening. On his discharge, he was given two oxygen tanks to use at home. The oxygen tanks were to boost the oxygen levels in his body. One of the tanks was a manual outdoor type which he would use whenever he was outside the house. Mrs. Chauke would carry the oxygen tank using a wheelbarrow when coming to church with her son. She never allowed the condition of her son to keep her away from attending church services because she knew that the healing of her son would come from the Lord. The indoor tank used electricity and he would often use it at night. When these tanks were empty, the hospital would deliver refilled tanks. If the child was not put on the oxygen tank, his skin would turn blue.

In 2019, Mrs. Chauke’s son underwent 2 life-threatening major heart surgeries. She was told that it was possible that the child might not survive. The first surgery was to help create a separate flow of oxygen-poor blood to the lungs from the oxygen-rich blood to the body. Mrs. Chauke anointed her son with the UBN Holy Anointing Oil having faith in God that her son would come out of the surgery alive. After the surgery, Mrs. Chauke was informed that her son needed a second surgery again on the same day as he was losing too much blood. He was also too swollen. After his surgery, the child was sedated for three days to help his body to recover from the surgery.

After the surgery, Mrs. Chauke’ son was able to live without the oxygen tanks to boost his oxygen level. But this healing did not last long as the child quickly relapsed and began coughing again. Mrs. Chauke’ son was again admitted and stayed in hospital for two weeks because doctors discovered that his heart was swollen. He thus needed to use the oxygen tank again. The doctor advised Mrs. Chauke to sometimes take him off the oxygen tank in order to give his body an opportunity to function on its own. Mrs. Chauke followed the instructions she was given and would put her son on the oxygen tank at night and monitor him during the day without the oxygen tank. The child’ skin would turn blue if he stayed for too long without the oxygen.

In 2020, Mrs. Chauke embarked on the Exodus 40 Days Fasting and Prayer to seek the face of the Lord concerning her son’s condition. She believed that the Lord would heal her son. On the third week of fasting on a Sunday, she decided not to put her son on the oxygen tank before preparing him for bed. Her child slept well that night and did not turn blue. Mrs. Chauke continued to not put her son on the oxygen mask for more days and her son kept doing well with no signs of truncus arteriosus symptoms. Since that Sunday of the third week of the 2020 40 Days Fasting and Prayer, Mrs. Chauke’ son has never used the oxygen tanks. He is an energetic child that loves to play around. Through fasting and prayer, the Lord restored his health.

The medical records of Mrs. Chauke’ son attest to the wonder working power of the Lord that saved his life and made him whole. The Echo Report performed on the 10th of April 2019 showed all the complications which Blessings was still suffering from after his operation. The Echo Report performed on the 11th of August 2020 (6 months after the 40 Days Fasting and Prayer) shows a totally different report from what had been previously stated.


10 MAY 2019 11 AUGUST 2020 EXPLANATION
Baby on nasal prong O2 Previously on home oxygen > off this x 6 months 2019 results: The nasal prong is a device used to deliver supplemental oxygen or increased airflow to a patient or person in need of respiratory help. It consists of a lightweight tube which on one end splits into two prongs which are placed in the nostrils and from which a mixture of air and oxygen flows.
2020 results: The child has been off oxygen at home for 6 months. This suggests that the oxygen in his blood is within the normal range of 90% -100% and the child can live / cope without using supplemental oxygen.
CW = 6.2 kg well grown child, CW = 10 kg In 2019 the child’s weight was too low for children of his age.
In a year’s time (2020) he was within the normal weight range of children his age
Two residual VSD 3mm each, with left to right shunt no obvious residual VSD. 2019 results: This implies that oxygen-poor blood and oxygen-rich blood are mixed together as blood flows to the lungs and the rest of the body resulting in too much blood going to the lungs. The heart works harder to pump blood to the rest of the body.
T
2020 results: The hole that was between the ventricles is no longer there. Therefore the oxygen-rich blood on the left side of the heart does not mix with the oxygen-poor blood on the right side of the heart.
Mrs. Chauke’ son was slow in his growth and development. Besides being always hooked to tanks which prohibited his movement, he was also diagnosed with CATCH 22 when he was a few months old. CATCH 22 is a disorder caused by a defect in chromosome 22 and it results in poor development of several bodily systems. He took long before he was able to sit, crawl, stand and walk. The Servant of God Pastor Mukhuba anointed him during the 2020 Anointing services and he miraculously started walking after that. He was 21 months at that time. This is indeed the power of God at work.

Blessed reader, let the testimony of Mrs. Chauke encourage you to have faith in the Lord for your situation to change. Fasting does not change God, but it changes your life. The more you get closer to God is the more that all unwanted things disappear from your life. Be encouraged to be part of what God is doing through the Unity 40 Days Fasting and Prayer. This is the 18th time that the Servant of God Pastor Mukhuba has been praying with the Unity church. God has each year been doing great wonders among His people. We continue to fast because we have seen and experienced that this kind of fasting works. Join us and see if it will not work for you also.
