In April 2015, Asia found herself in the fight of her life! She was admitted into the hospital and was declared completely paralyzed. The cause was a very rare and devastating condition known as ‘Guillian Barre’ Syndrome’. Because of the severity of Asia’s case and its alarmingly rapid progression, her prognosis was not favorable. In fact, the doctors predicted that Asia would eventually lose her ability to breathe on her own and would never regain the use of her limbs for walking or functioning as normal. But Asia’s Faith NEVER wavered! She held on to her belief that GOD CAN DO ANYTHING, and that included healing her. After an extended stay at two different hospitals, and being sent home still unable to walk or care for herself, Asia’s desire to walk again grew stronger every day! Asia made a miraculous recovery within three months of her release from the hospital! When asked how she did it, her answer is a very firm “GOD IS A HEALER!” Asia is certain that all of the credit belongs to God and her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for restoring her life.
