Healed for a Purpose by Sandy Sanderson (Forever Grateful Moments)

When I offered to CLC to work in North India, I was told that my arthritic hip excluded me from service overseas, but I would be considered for work in the UK. From acceptance into CLC in 1949, I had been receiving treatment for my arthritis but at the UK Annual Conference in 1956, that and other things changed!
The speaker for the devotional sessions was Ivor Davies of WEC who shared something of the Revival in the Congo… not the blessings… but the cost! As he told of the working of the Holy Spirit within the mission and local church, the agenda and timetable were ignored as people got right with God and with one another. There was confession, restoration, restitution and healings — mine among them. When Ivor and Pa (Fred) Whybrow laid hands and anointed me, I knew immediately that I had been healed. Someone said. “The Lord turned us upside down, but He brought us down the right way up!!” CLC was transformed, and so was I.
Later, when my mobile outreach ministry involved travelling throughout the UK in a trailer caravan all the year round — reaching out through market stalls and agricultural shows in all weathers — I knew that without the healing in 1956 I would not have been able to cope physically. The Lord does all things well.
