A Mother's Faith Brings a Son's Healing
May 8, 2009
NASHVILLE, (christiansunite.com) -- As mothers will be honored this Sunday for Mother's Day all over the world, one special testimony is a reminder of the faithfulness of God even to a Muslim mother. Bill Kristijanto, co- founder with his brother Ben of Christian band, Bread of Stone recently shared his testimony with major media outlets as One Cubed/CBN International, NewReleaseTuesday and Beautiful Faith during Gospel Music Week in Nashville, Tennessee.
The testimony of the unique experience was shared as Bill told how he was born with a debilitating stomach problem resulting in a lack of nourishment. After being placed on bottle feeding to help the nourishment problem, a boil developed on Bill's chin preventing bottle feeding. After numerous hours and visits at doctor's offices, his mother, Debora from Iran and a Muslim, allowed someone to pray for him and the boil was gone but the stomach problems continued.
Weeks later a visit from a woman informing Debora that there was someone who loved her son more than her and His name was Jesus, sparked anger as to how this woman would know more about her son than her. With the love of a mother, Debora sought out to find out about this man named Jesus and visited her husband Nehemia's pastor, resulting in weeks of Biblical training and baptism. As Debora was baptized into the faith with Bill in her arms, Debora's heart became open to God and healing came upon Bill with the stomach problems removed completely.
"My mother is truly an example of a woman of beautiful faith" said Kristijanto in a recent interview. "From the first day she opened her heart to God, she has never stopped serving Him."
