Do you believe in healing?

The testimony of one of the best missionaries I knew in Nigeria, . Sue Davies was Anglican and headed her church's TEE programme as I did for our church. In her forties she was told to go home quickly as she had a lump in her breast. She said she had responsibilities so did not go home for examination for several months, the end of her present tour. When home she was told she was terminal. She wrote in a prayer letter answering those who asked if she believed in healing. 'Of course' she wrote, 'God's will is for wholeness, healing. But where and when I cannot say. It is in his hands.' Within a year she was healed. But not in this fallen world. She was one of the three most outstanding career missionaries I knew. Another of the three died young too. God's ways are not our ways, his providence inscrutable.
