“I didn’t want anyone to know. I was afraid of what would happen if my family found out,” were the words of Miss Hope from South Africa as she shared her experience of how she started to bleed from her eyes, nose, mouth and even the pores on her arms.
At just the tender age of 8 years old, a man, who followed Hope home from school, attacked and raped her. This was the beginning of the devastation that remained for the next several years of her life. She became a magnet for perverts who would locate and molest her. Someone who she had considered a friend gave her cookies to eat, which were actually laced with drugs and caused her to pass out. The boy then raped her and brought her back to her mother’s house, claiming he didn’t know what had happened to her.
In 2011 she fell into a deep depression. Every time she slept, she had nightmares of being torn apart or being raped in vigorous ways. She would often see strange creatures that would come and attack her. While sleeping she would sweat excessively and would swell. One day she woke up from a nap and saw her pillow was red with blood that came from her eyes. It happened again in 2013 while at her auntie’s house. She couldn’t hide it from her auntie and confided in her not to tell anyone. From that point on, whenever she cried, she cried blood. Every 6-8 weeks she would have these strange experiences which eventually led her to bleed out of every single crevice or opening of her body.
One day Hope’s sister asked to borrow her phone and discovered the pictures of Hope’s disturbing bloody face and immediately informed their mother. The whole family was turned upside down from Hope’s condition. They didn’t know how to help her as doctors could not diagnose her strange predicament. When she began menstruating, her period would last for 40 days at a time, sometimes only having two days in between before menstruating another 40 days. Her condition became more obvious and she was not able to hide her problem from the public anymore. One day she started bleeding from her face in school and the children noticed it. They mocked her and called her a “devil child” because of what they saw happening to her. Due to the obscure condition, she was kicked out of school, because the faculty did not know how to handle the situation.
Depression set in and fatigue took over. Unable to sleep for more than two hours led to severe stress which caused her not to be able to eat. What’s more is that every time she wanted to read her Bible, she would start bleeding from her eyes. “I started to hate myself and contemplated suicide. My mom walked in on me trying to hang myself and saved me.” Each time she tried to end her life, something would stop her from succeeding. The stress of her unusual situation led to hair loss. It started with patches falling out on the side, to eventually falling out all over.
Tired of being rejected and in need of a lasting solution, Hope sought an answer to her problem from God Almighty. She discovered Emmanuel TV and would watch relentlessly in hope that one day she would receive her own healing. On the road to poverty due to excessive medical bills, Miss Hope’s mother did every proper thing to raise money to bring her daughter to The SCOAN for deliverance. “I came to The SCOAN because I wanted a proper relationship with Jesus Christ. Exactly what I was looking for, I found at The SCOAN,” said Hope.
Since her deliverance she declared that she has received so much rest in her body, spirit and soul. For the first time in her life, she no longer has perverts stalking and harming her. “I am so revived and on fire for Jesus. I am a new person. I regained everything in a double portion.” Since that wonderful day about one year ago, she has no longer bled from any crevice of her body. Her menstruation is now a healthy 3-4 days in duration and completely regular. “When I cry I say, ‘Thank You, Jesus,’ because my tears are crystal clear. Every time I sneeze, I say, ‘Thank You, Jesus,’ because there is no blood. When I cough I am happy because I am no longer coughing blood.” The things most people take for granted are Hope’s greatest joys. Her hair has also grown back even thicker and healthier than ever before.
Finally, Miss Hope’s mother testified that her daughter’s marks in school have been in top ranks and that after the deliverance, their entire family has been restored. Hope advised those listening to “Cast your cares upon Jesus for He cares for you.”
