Excruciating. The pain that pulsated down Leonardo’s waist and back region were unbearable. What began as a mere work-related injury nosedived into a crippling back problem which robbed him of both job and peace. Five years of agony. Five years of tears. Five years of restlessness.
The strong, healthy young man was reduced to a point of being bedridden for larger parts of the day. Simple movements such as going to the toilet became a burdensome task for Leonardo Caballero, requiring the assistance of family members. A cocktail of strong painkillers did little to quell the infirmity as the Paraguayan became a shadow of his former self.
A glimmer of hope came when Leonardo learned about the Paraguay Crusade with Prophet T.B. Joshua. Having watched videos on Emmanuel TV’s YouTube channel, his faith began to grow. On the day of the crusade, brimming with expectation, Leonardo waited patiently on the prayer line.
One touch. That was all. Just one touch from Jesus! Crumpling to the ground, Leonardo lay on the floor of the Estadio Defensores del Chaco – shell-shocked. It was if a lightning bolt from Heaven had struck his back, which was visible shaking! Hurriedly raised to his feet, Mr Caballero began to walk, then run, then jump… The pain had gone! Returning home that day, he testified that all traces of the pain had disappeared by the following day.
Jumping up and down and squatting with ease, the Paraguayan joyfully explained that the miraculous transformation in his body in just a few days since the crusade is mind-boggling! “I thank God for the life of Prophet T.B. Joshua, whom He used to restore my health and change my life. Thank You, Jesus!”
