In 2007, 70-year-old Albert Yeo suffered from slipped disk in his lumbar (between the L4 and L5) vertebrae. Whenever he stood or sat upright, the weight of his body would cause that disk to be squeezed out of alignment and pressed on his nerves nearby. As a result, he would experience a sharp, shooting pain from his lower back right down to both his legs. His suffering would be further aggravated if he tried to walk.
He consulted a specialist who confirmed that he experienced considerable bone degeneration and osteoporosis. The only viable option was for him to undergo surgery in order to remove the pain on his back and legs. The date of surgery was scheduled for August 22, 2007. In the meantime, as Albert was allergic to even panadol, his doctor could not prescribe any painkiller to help him deal with the excruciating pain. Hence, he could only cry to the Lord, praying for some reprieve from his suffering.
On July 21, 2007, he attended the Miracle Service and was prayed for. Although he did not receive any instant improvement, he believed God for his healing. Then, just one week before the surgery, Albert woke up one morning at about 4.00 am feeling great. As he moved from his bedroom to his favorite seat at the balcony, instead of the torturous pain he had grown accustomed to, the short walk was a breeze to him except for a little discomfort in his left ankle. And even that disappeared after a few days. From then onward, all the pain in the back and legs
Subsequently, he saw his anesthetist on August 17, supposedly to find out the amount of anesthetic required for his surgery. When Albert told him that he had fully recovered from his slipped disk, his anesthetist asked him to bend forward, backward and sideways. Seeing that Albert was able to do all that with no problem whatsoever, he canceled the scheduled surgery right there and then. Albert is now able to relish his daily walk of about 6.5 km with his wife, totally void of pain.
In June 2003, Albert was diagnosed as having cataracts growing in both his eyes, a condition which resulted in the blurring of his vision. In 2006, after undergoing an operation, his left eye was restored to full vision with no side-effects. The plan was to do the same for his right eye.
During his six-monthly check-up earlier this year, his doctor ascertained that the cataract in his right eye was still present. As Albert started attending the Miracle Service, he also committed that condition to the Lord in prayer. At the latest check-up just yesterday, he rejoiced that the cataract could not be located at all, much to the amazement of his doctor who repeated the inspection three times. Praise the Lord!
