Finding the Answer

Cassaundra Siegersma“I grew up in a religious home, and sickness was just punishment for doing something wrong. I remember telling my dad about my back problems, and his response was, ‘What did you do to cause it?’”

Cassaundra Siegersma had been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease, sleep apnea, asthma, and fibromyalgia and had two herniated disks resulting in two back surgeries. She would sleep all day and stay up all night while her husband worked three jobs to pay the bills. Still, they were on the brink of bankruptcy.

Searching for a change, Cassaundra decided to tag along with one of her relatives to AWM’s annual Summer Family Bible Conference in Colorado. “I remember sitting under Andrew’s teaching,” recalls Cassaundra, “and he started quoting verses from the Bible concerning healing. Anytime I would have the thought of his teaching being false, I would be reminded of Romans 3:4, ‘Let God be true, but every man a liar.’ I realized that Andrew was quoting the Word. And God is true; therefore, His word is true.”

After receiving prayer for her healing at the conference, Cassaundra went back to her hotel room and threw her medication away, deciding that she was going to take a stand on her healing. Two weeks later, she received a touch from God that she would never forget.

“One morning as I was trying to sleep, I felt someone touch my toe. I thought my husband wanted me to take him to work. So, I opened my eyes, but no one was there. Within five minutes, I was asleep and slept better than I had in years.

“I can honestly say that I have been healed of everything. Not only did God heal me physically, but He was also able to heal my broken heart. God healed all of the hurt, anger, and condemnation in my life and replaced it with His peace.”

Cassaundra’s family is closer, stronger, and more loving than ever before. She has experienced her Healer and, as a result, will never be the same. “Healing is like any gift,” remarks Cassaundra. “If God paid for it in order to give it to you, then He wants you to have it!

“I think one of the greatest realizations I have come to understand is that healing is about the solution, not the problem. The cross is the answer, and it does not matter what problem you are facing. God can change your mind, your circumstances, and even that giant in your life. What Christ did on the cross is so much bigger than any sin or circumstance in your life.

“Let God be your refuge, your fortress, your deliverer, and a very present help in time of need. He will meet you wherever you are with outstretched hands and a loving heart. Go hear the Word, hear the truth, and expect to see a good God show up in powerful ways in your life!”

Miraculously Kept in the Love of God

Emergency crews at Scott's accident (Click to enlarge)The serenity of the fallen snow was shattered as red and blue emergency lights converged on an accident in northern Michigan. Andrew Wommack Ministries partner Scott Peterson struggled as his heart slowed in the -9 degree weather. “Jesus!” he got out before losing consciousness.

After stopping to help a stranded motorist in the ice and snow of that winter day, another car spun out on the icy roads, lost control, and veered into the ditch where he was working, pinning him between two vehicles. Scott started rapidly losing blood. He was taken by ambulance to the nearest hospital for emergency surgery to try and stabilize his condition. The doctors discovered that his femoral artery—the main blood carrier in the lower half of the body—had been severed! Scott was given thirty-two units of blood during a seven hour operation even though the doctors gave him twenty-four hours to live.

With a massive amount of blood loss, slipping in and out of comas, soft tissue damage, and organ stress, Scott was not expected to live. Doctors told his wife, Diane, to expect amputation as the “best-case scenario” for his recovery. But Diane refused to limit her faith to that. Diane relied on the truths they’d learned from Andrew and others of God’s unconditional love—

“It wasn’t any one particular teaching by Andrew or anyone at that particular time that got us through. It was the things that we had learned from him over the years, especially Harnessing Your Emotions, Christian Survival Kit, and through our partnership with the ministry. Andrew’s ministry became everything as they stood with us. It meant so much. Jill and Charlie Leblanc’s praise and worship was also a blessing. The Healing Journeys DVDs were also inspiring. God’s grace is always sufficient. When I thought I didn’t have strength or patience, God’s grace provided.”

However, he aspirated the very next day during a surgery and was once again given no hope of surviving. He was in a coma for nine days, during which time he flat lined and was in the presence of the Lord. Scott remarks “When I saw Him, I realized how much He loves us. I was very happy to see Him, but He was even happier to see me. I knew I was totally accepted.” That experience greatly helped Scott in his recovery, as he was able to rest in the Lord’s unconditional love.

Today Scott is walking on two healthy legs. He is driving and rebuilding his strength. His doctor recently declared, “If we’d seen this kind of recovery after three years of therapy, I’d be ecstatic.” But it’s only been nine months!

“Thank you Jesus!”

Andrew Interviews Connie Weiskopf

In November 2010, we shared the story of Connie Weiskopf's introduction to the unconditional love of God and how the Lord had touched her life. The story chronicled the guilt and condemnation that had plagued Connie for decades, revealing that since her adolescence Connie's life had been anything but carefree. Over the span of time shared in the story, she had been raped multiple times, terminated three pregnancies, and had gone on to battle breast cancer as an adult. But, after her introduction to Jesus and Andrew's teaching, Connie's life was transformed.

Today we are happy to share a video update to Connie's story. Last summer, Andrew had the opportunity to sit down with the Weiskopfs at the Healing Journeys Reunion held at The Sanctuary. Watch the video below as Connie and her husband, David, share with Andrew, in their own words, the miraculous turnaround they have witnessed in their own lives and the lives of many others as a result of receiving the Gospel Truth.
