From birth, for thirty long years, Antonia struggled with diminished hearing. Unfortunately, it seemed to worsen as each year passed. After years of struggling to communicate and respond normally to people, the young Dominican was given hearing aids at the age of 17. However, despite the sophisticated devices science and technology had to offer, her hearing continued to deteriorate.
“Whenever I went to look for a job, they didn’t accept me because I couldn’t hear the questions they asked in the interview,” she soberly recounted. “Whenever I went to classes, I couldn’t hear what my teachers were saying.” It had reached a stage whereby Antonia could not enjoy any form of normalcy in her life.
With seemingly no end in sight to her predicament, Antonia’s cousin encouraged her to believe God for a miracle. “She told me that if I attended the Crusade with Prophet T.B. Joshua in the Dominican Republic, I would never use those hearing aids again.” Indeed, when Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for Antonia, something incredible transpired! After the touch from Jesus Christ, she removed her hearing aids and was amazed that sounds she had not heard clearly since birth suddenly became vivid and palpable. “I was able to hear all of these sounds around me for the first time in my life,” she joyfully testified!
