My sister, Anita, had been demon-possessed for the past year. She would curse and scream at family members and throw tantrums.
I invited Hindu priests to perform exorcism and I did everything they said. They said she was going to be OK but she didn’t get better. She’d say unspeakable things to the family members. She tried to commit suicide and we had to tie her up. In January 2018, my uncle introduced Jesus Christ and GCN TV Hindi channel on YouTube. I got Pastor John’s number and whenever my sister had an episode, I called him to receive handkerchief prayer (Acts 19:11-12) that calmed her down.
Since then, my family listened to Rev. Jaerock Lee’s sermon series ‘Message of the Cross’ and the ‘Ten Commandments’ on GCN TV Hindi channel. We repented of our idolatry and other sins. In January 2019 we, along with our neighbors, attended the live broadcast of Friday all-night service of Manmin Central Church on YouTube. Seeing some of my neighbors getting healed there, I was also convinced that my sister could be healed, too. We listened to the sermons and prayed so that she could be healed in the special divine healing session in February.
On Feb. 22, when receiving the prayer of Pastor Soojin Lee with the handkerchief in the healing session, my sister repented with tears and received the fire of the Holy Spirit. The demon left her, and she is now perfectly normal. Hallelujah!
My sister, Anita, had been demon-possessed for the past year. She would curse and scream at family members and throw tantrums.
Probably because I used to listen to music with earphones, I had ringing noises in my left ear by 2017. The noise was like chirping of insects and irregular at first, but later it was there constantly.
I could understand only about 60% of what the people were saying due to the noise. It was very uncomfortable for me. I just thought to myself, “It’s natural I have this condition because I am pretty old.”
In 2019, I read the testimonies of church members who were giving glory to God for the divine healings they experienced. I wanted to be healed by faith, too. I attended all of the 2-Term Consecutive Special Daniel Prayer Meeting. As I prayed every night with all my heart, I gained peace in mind and I was filled with the Lord’s grace.
I also attended the Manmin Prayer Center meetings in the morning. On March 28, Mrs. Lee the director of Prayer Center prayed for me with the handkerchief on which the Senior Pastor Rev. Jaerock Lee prayed (Acts 19:11-12).
In the Special Healing Session in the Friday all-night service on March 29, I received Pastor Soojin Lee’s handkerchief prayer for the whole congregation.
After the Friday all-night service, I returned home and went to bed. When I got up, I realized the noise was gone and I could hear clearly.
How refreshed and light I felt! I was sure that God accepted and answered my prayers during the 2-Term Consecutive Daniel Prayer Meetings that I offered with all my heart.
Also, I had ‘floaters’ in my left eye. I always saw something like mayflies flying around. After the Special Healing Session, the condition has become much better now. Hallelujah!
I give all thanks and glory to God the Father who has healed me. I give thanks for the Lord’s grace for leading me to this precious church that is overflowing with the evidence of the living God.
Not long after I got married in March, 2013, I realized I and my wife had a problem. Once my wife miscarried a baby, we couldn’t have a baby no matter what we did. Doctors said my wife would not be able to be pregnant again.
We met many other doctors, but they all said the same. We ran into debt going to infertility clinics. My wife cried in despair every day and night, which caused her to become too weak to digest food.
One winter day, someone told me that we could have a baby if we go to church and receive prayer. We went to Deli Manmin Church, and soon became Christians. My wife received the prayer with the handkerchief of God’s power, and regained her health back. We were so happy and began preaching the gospel to our families and relatives.
In mid March, 2016, we made a prayer request for a baby to Dr. Jaerock Lee, Senior Pastor of Manmin Central Church in South Korea.
We soon realized my wife had become pregnant again. In January of the same year, she delivered a healthy daughter. My wife and I felt like we owned the whole world. We are fully assured that God is alive. We are faithfully working for the church now.
Since the start of Manmin, countless people around the world became pregnant after receiving Dr. Jaerock Lee’s prayer. Thanks to his prayer, Deaconess Yuna Park, who couldn’t have a baby because of the problem with her Fallopian tubes, delivered a son. Rudmila of Israel, who miscarried twice in 3 years after her marriage, became pregnant after receiving prayer, and gave a birth to her son, Solomon. Hortense Bandome of DR Congo delivered a son after receiving the prayer with the handkerchief of God’s power. Later she gave birth to 3 more children.
Kyu-Hee Lim, Sung-Jin Yoon, Min-Kyung Lee, Hye-Sook Kim, and more were given ‘High possibility of Down Syndrome” for their babies in congenital anomaly test, but they all delivered healthy babies after receiving Dr. Jaerock Lee’s prayer. Shortly after becoming pregnant, Sun-Hyo Kim and Eun-Young Choe were told that they had conceived a son rather than a daughter they wanted. But after receiving prayer, they had a daughter as they had desired. Minister Eun-Young Cho was conceived a daughter, but after receiving prayer, she gave birth to a son just as she wished.
This was my 5th visit to Manmin Central Church. I feel at home here. The beautiful performance was very impressive. It was so amazing that I wished it would not end!
On my first visit to this church in 2008, I suffered from cancer and skin diseases. Especially the musculoskeletal pain from fibromyalgia was constant pain. As I walked up the stairs to enter the sanctuary, however, all the pain was gone. Before the visit, fluid built up on my knees, and my legs were too heavy to walk up stairs. But I could easily walk up the stairs. After receiving Dr. Jaerock Lee’s prayer I experienced a miracle; all my diseases were healed!Hallelujah!
I also received a great deal of grace while reading books written by Dr. Jaerock Lee. The books The Message of the Cross, Heaven, Hell, The Measure of Faith, Seven Churches, and My Life, My Faith all helped my faith to grow. As I read Hell, I realized that in my life I had no other choice but to fall into hell. It was from that moment my life changed. As I read the book Heaven it gave me hope for heaven, a country of my own.
To me, Dr. Jaerock Lee is like a father who helped open my spiritual eyes. He helped me learn the good God and the beloved Lord, and also helped to understand what the Lord wants from me.
I preached this precious gospel while helping others. Now, I am sharing this grace with about 50 people. We’ve attended various services of Manmin Central Church and its Daniel Prayer meeting on the Internet, and managed happy Christian lives while receiving answers and blessings.
A relative of mine, Deaconess Jung-Ja Park, was healed of arthritis after receiving Dr. Jaerock Lee’s prayer. While leading a happy Christian life, she led me to Manmin Church in 2012, but my life was tough, and I didn’t go to church as I should have.
I suffered from hepatitis b. I was always tired. I had no appetite. I had constant headache, and I couldn’t breathe well due to rhinitis.
Deaconess Park advised me again, and I went to church again in 2013. I met so many Chinese Parish members who were healed of diseases. They solved their life-bothering problems and managed happy Christian lives. I was touched a lot by them. I also received God’s grace through Dr. Jaerock Lee’s messages, and kept the Lord’s day holy.
Gradually my diseases disappeared. Breathing problem due to rhinitis, headache, and other 25 year-long diseases were all gone. I was even healed of hepatitis b. Hallelujah!
I was so grateful for the Lord’s grace that I helped Chinese Parish members in a church cafeteria. Now I serve the Lord as a member of Chinese Praise Team. I’m also grateful that my mother, Deaconess Soo-Kum Lee was also healed of hepatocirrhosis (cirrhosis of the liver). It’s like a dream to see my healthy mother!
When she was in China, she even had hydrops abdominis because of the liver cirrhsis. She was told in a hospital that she had to go to Korea for proper medical treatment. Since I experienced God’s healing, I said to her, “Please come quickly to my church and be healed.” She came to Korea last January 1, 2019.
I believe that God was pleased to see her come to Korea by faith. In the morning after her first night in Korea, swelling of her legs subsided, and her coughing were reduced. After receiving handkerchief prayer of God’s power a couple of times by Mrs. Bok-Nim Lee the president of Manmin Prayer Center, the swelling was almost gone.
Then she attended Manmin Prayer Center meeting every day. She heard messages, prayed, and received Dr. Jaerock Lee’s prayer for the sick. As she read his books such as My Life, My Faith, and The Message of the Cross, she understood the love of God and of the Lord. Her joy and thanks continued to grow up as her faith grew up. Eventually she was found ‘normal’ in a hospital diagnosis last September. Hallelujah!
I give all thanks and glory to God the Father and the Lord who blessed us to lead happy Christian lives.

Hepatitis B is a serious liver infection caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV). For some people, hepatitis B infection becomes chronic, meaning it lasts more than six months. Having chronic hepatitis B increases your risk of developing liver failure, liver cancer or cirrhosis — a condition that permanently scars of the liver.
Most adults with hepatitis B recover fully, even if their signs and symptoms are severe. Infants and children are more likely to develop a chronic (long-lasting) hepatitis B infection.
A vaccine can prevent hepatitis B, but there’s no cure if you have the condition. If you’re infected, taking certain precautions can help prevent spreading the virus to others.
Signs and symptoms of hepatitis B range from mild to severe. They usually appear about one to four months after you’ve been infected, although you could see them as early as two weeks post-infection. Some people, usually young children, may not have any symptoms.
Hepatitis B signs and symptoms may include:
Loss of appetite
Nausea and vomiting
Weakness and fatigue
Yellowing of your skin and the whites of your eyes (jaundice)
Hepatitis B infection is caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV). The virus is passed from person to person through blood, semen or other body fluids. It does not spread by sneezing or coughing.
Common ways that HBV can spread are:
Sexual contact. You may get hepatitis B if you have unprotected sex with someone who is infected. The virus can pass to you if the person’s blood, saliva, semen or vaginal secretions enter your body.
Sharing of needles. HBV easily spreads through needles and syringes contaminated with infected blood. Sharing IV drug paraphernalia puts you at high risk of hepatitis B.
Accidental needle sticks. Hepatitis B is a concern for health care workers and anyone else who comes in contact with human blood.
Mother to child. Pregnant women infected with HBV can pass the virus to their babies during childbirth. However, the newborn can be vaccinated to avoid getting infected in almost all cases. Talk to your doctor about being tested for hepatitis B if you are pregnant or want to become pregnant.
Acute vs. chronic hepatitis B
Hepatitis B infection may be either short-lived (acute) or long lasting (chronic).
Acute hepatitis B infection lasts less than six months. Your immune system likely can clear acute hepatitis B from your body, and you should recover completely within a few months. Most people who get hepatitis B as adults have an acute infection, but it can lead to chronic infection.
Chronic hepatitis B infection lasts six months or longer. It lingers because your immune system can’t fight off the infection. Chronic hepatitis B infection may last a lifetime, possibly leading to serious illnesses such as cirrhosis and liver cancer.
The younger you are when you get hepatitis B — particularly newborns or children younger than 5 — the higher your risk of the infection becoming chronic. Chronic infection may go undetected for decades until a person becomes seriously ill from liver disease.
Hepatitis B spreads through contact with blood, semen or other body fluids from an infected person. Your risk of hepatitis B infection increases if you:
Have unprotected sex with multiple sex partners or with someone who’s infected with HBV
Share needles during IV drug use
Are a man who has sex with other men
Live with someone who has a chronic HBV infection
Are an infant born to an infected mother
Have a job that exposes you to human blood
Travel to regions with high infection rates of HBV, such as Asia, the Pacific Islands, Africa and Eastern Europe
Having a chronic HBV infection can lead to serious complications, such as:
Scarring of the liver (cirrhosis). The inflammation associated with a hepatitis B infection can lead to extensive liver scarring (cirrhosis), which may impair the liver’s ability to function.
Liver cancer. People with chronic hepatitis B infection have an increased risk of liver cancer.
Liver failure. Acute liver failure is a condition in which the vital functions of the liver shut down. When that occurs, a liver transplant is necessary to sustain life.
Other conditions. People with chronic hepatitis B may develop kidney disease or inflammation of blood vessels.
The hepatitis B vaccine is typically given as three or four injections over six months. You can’t get hepatitis B from the vaccine.
The hepatitis B vaccine is recommended for:
Children and adolescents not vaccinated at birth
Those who work or live in a center for people who are developmentally disabled
People who live with someone who has hepatitis B
Health care workers, emergency workers and other people who come into contact with blood
Anyone who has a sexually transmitted infection, including HIV
Men who have sex with men
People who have multiple sexual partners
Sexual partners of someone who has hepatitis B
People who inject illegal drugs or share needles and syringes
People with chronic liver disease
People with end-stage kidney disease
Travelers planning to go to an area of the world with a high hepatitis B infection rate
Take precautions to avoid HBV
Other ways to reduce your risk of HBV include:
Know the HBV status of any sexual partner. Don’t engage in unprotected sex unless you’re absolutely certain your partner isn’t infected with HBV or any other sexually transmitted infection.
Use a new latex or polyurethane condom every time you have sex if you don’t know the health status of your partner. Remember that although condoms can reduce your risk of contracting HBV, they don’t eliminate the risk.
Don’t use illegal drugs. If you use illicit drugs, get help to stop. If you can’t stop, use a sterile needle each time you inject illicit drugs. Never share needles.
Be cautious about body piercing and tattooing. If you get a piercing or tattoo, look for a reputable shop. Ask about how the equipment is cleaned. Make sure the employees use sterile needles. If you can’t get answers, look for another shop.
Ask about the hepatitis B vaccine before you travel. If you’re traveling to a region where hepatitis B is common, ask your doctor about the hepatitis B vaccine in advance. It’s usually given in a series of three injections over a six-month period.
What is cerebral palsy?
Cerebral palsy is a group of disorders that affect balance, movement, and muscle tone. “Cerebral” means the disorder is related to the brain, and “palsy” refers to weakness or a muscle problem.
Cerebral palsy starts in the area of the brain that controls the ability to move muscles. Cerebral palsy can happen when that part of the brain doesn’t develop as it should, or when it is damaged right around the time of birth or very early in life.
Causes Of cerebral palsy
Cerebral palsy is caused by an abnormality or disruption in brain development, most often before a child is born. In many cases, the cause isn’t known. Factors that can lead to problems with brain development include:
-Gene mutations that lead to abnormal development
-Maternal infections that affect the developing fetus
-Fetal stroke, a disruption of blood supply to the developing brain
-Bleeding into the brain in the womb or as a newborn
-Infant infections that cause inflammation in or around the brain
-Traumatic head injury to an infant from a motor vehicle accident or fall
-Lack of oxygen to the brain related to difficult labor or delivery, although birth-related asphyxia is -much less commonly a cause than historically thought
General symptoms of cerebral palsy
-Problems in sensation, vision, hearing, swallowing and speaking
-Stiff muscles and exaggerated reflexes (spasticity)
-Stiff muscles with normal reflexes (rigidity)
-Excessive drooling or problems with swallowing
-Difficulty with sucking or eating
-Delays in speech development or difficulty speaking
-involuntary, slow writhing movements, or athetosis
-crawling in an unusual way
-problems controlling bladder and bowel movements
-Lack of balance and muscle coordination (ataxia)
Difficulty walking, such as walking on toes, a crouched gait, a scissors-like gait with knees crossing, a wide gait or an asymmetrical gait

In March 2013, I got married and enjoyed my life as a newlywed. After I had a miscarriage, however, I could not have a baby no matter how hard I tried. I had a check-up and the doctor told me that I would not be able to have a baby. He did not even know the cause. It was so painful to me.
My husband consoled me and suggested going to more experienced doctors. I saw many doctors but their answer was the same.
My dream was shattered, and I had no hope anymore. We spent much money on fertility clinics and came to have a large amount of debt. In the misery of the situations, I cried all day. It even caused me to have chronic headaches.
In the meantime, I heard good news from an acquaintance. She talked about the powerful works manifested by Dr. Jaerock Lee, Senior Pastor of Manmin Central Church. She said if I receive his prayer I might have a baby.
At that time, I was so weak that I often collapsed. I could not eat well either. In winter of 2013, I went to Delhi Manmin Church for the first time by the help of my family. I received the prayer of the handkerchief from Pastor John Kim (Acts 19:11-12). Amazingly, I came to eat well right away and my condition of health recovered. I came to live normally.
With thanks for the grace, I tried to live by the Word of God and spread the grace of God and the Lord and powerful works manifested by Dr. Lee. My family and relatives were guided to the church.
Afterwards, I was urged from my heart to receive Senior Pastor’s prayer.
In the middle of March 2016, I sent my prayer request for my conception to Manmin Central Church to receive Senior Pastor’s prayer. Less than a month after he prayed for me, I conceived a baby and on January 19, 2017, a pretty and healthy girl was born. Hallelujah!
That was not all. My husband received the money he had not received from his workplace. We could pay all the debt back. I give all thanks and glory to God who changed desperation into hope. I also give thanks to Senior Pastor who prayed for me.
Six years ago, my body suddenly became stiffened. Neither could I move my body freely nor walk. I went to a renowned hospital in Delhi, but even the name of my disease was beyond me. The doctors had me undergo many tests to figure out what it was, but they ended up diagnosing me with ‘an incurable hereditary disease.’ The disease had locked me into a completely miserable life.
I could do nothing on my own. I couldn’t even eat by myself. I could not walk either for my body trembled and I would lose my balance. I was alive but my body seemed to be dead. I became depressive and my wife left me. I had to rely on my mother.
In February 2018, I was guided to Delhi Manmin Church by Brother Mahesh who is my neighbor. As I learned the will of God embedded in the Bible through the sermons, I came to keep the Lord’s Day. In the meantime, I felt my symptoms improve little by little. As I practiced the Word of God one by one, my body got strengthened and I came to walk on my own. I even managed to climb up the stairs to the third floor on my own. My hands and legs are loosened, and now I can work!
I heard about Manmin Summer Retreat and prepared myself to receive complete healing. As Pastor John Kim had suggested I read Senior Pastor Dr. Jaerock Lee’s book The Message of the Cross and listened to his sermon “The Measure of Faith.” I repented with prayers and fasting.
On August 6, approximately two hundred people gathered in the church and took part in the Summer Retreat via GCN live broadcasting. We listened to the message of Rev. Dr. Soojin Lee. When she prayed for the sick with the handkerchief on which Senior Pastor had prayed (Acts 19:11-12), I felt like someone touched me. I felt that God was healing me.
Next day, I felt refreshed. My body hardly trembled, I recovered the ability to write. I also regained the ability to pronounce words correctly though I hadn’t been able to. Now I can walk up and down the stairs like normal people do.
My body was like it was dead without any medical treatment to cure it, but I became a truly living person by the power of re-creation. I give all thanks and glory to God who healed me!
I could barely hear from both of my ears since birth. When my parents talked really loudly, I could hear a little bit and respond to them. I was made fun of by my classmates and also lagged behind other students after entering middle school, though I wore a hearing aid in my right ear. I was eventually declared to have a second-class physical disorder.
I kept losing my hearing ability though I wore the hearing aid. In 2013, I even had a cochlear implant (the insertion of a device that works as a cochlea) in my right ear and wore the cochlear hearing aid as well. However, I could not hear well because my ears rang, and I had headaches. It often led to failure in communication. I often could not understand what others were saying, so I had to see their lips closely to understand them and needed sign language.
In 2015, I was guided to Manmin by my friend, Deaconess Miok Cheong. While I listened to Dr. Jaerock lee’s messages, I felt broken parts of my heart stitched and healed by the love of the Lord. I also became assured of the living God when witnessing His powerful works.
In early July 2018, Pastor Sooyeol Cho, Guidance Pastor for the Deaf Mission advised me to prepare the upcoming Manmin Summer Retreat with longing, prayer, and fasting. I fasted in obedience and repented of what I had done outside of the will of God. After I repented of my ill feeling against my husband, I made peace with him.
On August 6, I received Rev. Soojin Lee’s prayer when she prayed on the stage, and also Manmin Prayer Center President Boknim Lee prayed for me with the handkerchief of power on me (Acts 19:11-12).
Then, my ears felt hot and my head cleared. Then my ears popped and came to hear! Now I can clearly hear the voice of preachers on the altar during services. I do not need sign language translation.
I even can hear the voice coming from the cell phone of a person next to me. My hearing ability has become better and better though I have not worn the hearing aid. I am so happy and thankful. I give all thanks and glory to God who healed me with the power of re-creation!
