When Susan first came to The Elijah Challenge Training in September 2014 held in Texas, she was unable to walk normally because of a nerve disorder. She would shuffle along as she walked. Rugs and carpets would be a challenge to her since they could cause her to trip and fall. Below is her August 2015 testimony of what happened at the Training. “In September 2014 I attended the Elijah Challenge Training. During this time I asked for total and complete healing of my nerve disorder. As hands were laid on me and this infirmity was commanded to leave my body, I felt a current of electrical impulses throughout my body. I was asked to walk up the staircase. I RAN up and down the stairs 3 times!! I had not “run” in 13+ years. My friend stood at the bottom of the stairs crying, as she witnessed the transformation in my physical capabilities. She knew me as I struggled to walk across the room. As I made the four-hour drive home from Houston, I could feel the sensation (hard to describe, just what had been “normal” for me for many years) trying to return. I commanded over and over for this infirmity to leave me. I believe I had to do this on occasion for a few months, and it has not returned. I have enjoyed total and complete healing and living a normal life. Hills, stairs, shopping sprees, all good to go! Praise God from Whom All Blessings Flow!” Here is Susan’s complete testimony including the details of her journey before the Training. “When asked to give my story on the healing I enjoy today, I felt compelled to give the whole story. I will take you from life pre-incident to today. Fall 2000 I was very active, walk/jog track for 3 miles 2x week and step-aerobics class 2x week. At the same time I was experiencing what the doctor and I perceived to be asthma, getting worse and worse. January 2001 I informed the doctor I believed I actually had croup. So the next day I was scoped by an ENT and told I had severe acid reflux, GERD, and started on a medication for GERD. In order to completely rule out asthma I saw a pulmonologist, who confirmed severe GERD, and changed my medication to Reglan, highest dose 4x day. A few weeks later, as ambulation was getting more difficult, I assumed I was extremely tired, but returned to my family physician anyway. I was actually having a reaction to Reglan. It did not reverse.
“I could not raise my legs, totally shuffling progressing to total inability to propel my legs at all”
[I experienced] total muscle involvement. I could not raise my legs, totally shuffling progressing to total inability to propel my legs at all. At times all my muscles would be in spasm, arms (unable to use), facial muscles (I always looked like I was angry or in pain). I had to retire from work at the young age of 49. I used a scooter outside of the home. Also crutches with the arm braces. My home is a multi-level split level home, so I crawled up and down stairs. After 4 years of seeing neurology specialists and testing, my neuro symptoms were identified as “Hyperexcitable Peripheral Nerve Disorder”. I was started on an anticonvulsant, which greatly improved my walking capabilities. However, I had no stamina, could not walk an incline and still could not walk a grocery store. But I was very happy with my improvement. Eventually I added Vit B12 sublingual to my regimen with some improvement. During this time, using a Bible Concordance I copied every verse on healing and claimed them. Owned them. My faith journey exploded during this time. I am so grateful my health decline woke up my spirit and prompted a beautiful, personal relationship with my Heavenly Father as I had never known before. I still had physical limitations, but I knew no limitations in life. Fast forward to Summer 2013. After 7 months of repeated episodes of bronchitis and near hospitalizations, at the recommendation of a friend, I began a gluten free diet. Absolutely no more episodes of bronchitis. Also at this time my daughter and her family returned to America after serving as missionaries in Uganda for 3 years. She was introduced to essential oils and she shared them with me. Using oils to support my central nervous system I was able to be medication free! BUT, I was still dependent on a source of treatment to maintain a healthy body. In September 2014 I attended the Elijah Challenge Training. During this time I asked for total and complete healing of my nerve disorder. As hands were laid on me and this infirmity was commanded to leave my body, I felt a current of electrical impulses throughout my body. I was asked to walk up the staircase.
