Mark Ellis recently shared a touching story of a woman who was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a cancer of the plasma cells in the bone marrow, which is considered incurable. But with Jesus-centered faith, prayer, and a powerful dream, God brought a miraculous healing that confounded her doctors.
Tecla Micela shared of her experience saying: “They said I had 3-5 years to live,….. It was dreadful and I was scared to death,” reported Christian Post.
No matter who you are or what you have done, you are qualified to be a part of God’s family.❤❤

Fortunately for Tecla, Dr’s caught the cancer at an early stage. However, with Tecla being opposed to chemotherapy doctors agreed to monitor the progression of the cancer with bone surveys and blood tests every 60 days.
“The oncologist did a spinal and it came out at 17 blood plasma level and the threshold is 5,” says Gary LaFerla, her son, who accompanied his mother to the doctor visits. At 17%, doctors were willing to wait on the chemo.
But after three years of monitoring Tecla, doctors noticed an alarming increase in cancer cells. “It was full blown cancer, at least 27% in her blood,” Gary says.
Raised as a nominal Catholic, Tecla was born again through the influence of Gary and his sister Laura, who were involved at Calvary Chapel in Costa Mesa, California.
Tecla said: “I accepted Christ but I didn’t know what I was doing. I drove home and I felt different. I never wanted to sin again. The next morning I woke up with a smile on my face and I felt so peaceful.”
Gary shared Tecla’s faith became a vital component as she faced a potentially deadly health crisis. “This cancer eats the bones from the inside and they will collapse,” he expressed. “It can be very painful.”
Tecla’s doctors wanted a bone marrow biopsy from her spine before they started chemotherapy.
“I had a whole week to think and pray and was petrified all the while,” Tecla recounts. “I didn’t know if I wanted chemo or if I should just die naturally. I was crying all the time.”
Gary LaFerlaOne evening son Gary had dinner with his mother because he was flying out of Orange County the next morning.
After their meal he said, “Mom, let’s kneel down and pray.” They both knelt down together. “Mom, the psalms are full of God’s promises. I want you to read all of them and stand on God’s promises. We will be praying for you.”
Tecla spent the entire week in her patio reading the psalms and praying. “That’s all I did. I prayed that God would heal me.”
She poured out her heart to God: I know I have done it all, I’ve been married, have children, grandchildren, finished college, but I’m not ready to die yet. If you heal me I will tell of your miracle to anyone that wants to listen, she told God. Shared Christian Post
