Healed from “Suicide Disease” with a Touch and a Prayer

Brandice Hudson – 700 Club Producer

“Out of nowhere I just had this lightning bolt of piercing, burning pain.  It was the most excruciating pain I’ve ever felt in my life, come into the upper part of my left cheek and just pierce straight through my face,” said Chris Carlson. 

It was 1997, when 25-year-old Chris Carlson started having the attacks. At first they lasted a few seconds but every day they returned, more painful, and more often.  

“Chris would have one of the shocks, the pain in her face.  I could see it instantly.  Her eye would close up, her face would kind of scrunch up,” said Chris’ husband, Dave.

“My face would swell up with the pain and so literally my face would constrict,” said Chris. 

Doctors couldn’t find the cause, and the faintest touch on her face or exposure to light would trigger an episode.  The pain from her sensitivity to light became so debilitating, she had to leave her job as an engineer and isolate herself from friends. 

“Our house was becoming darker and darker and darker.  I mean a light bulb would go out and we wouldn’t replace it.  And so literally it was dark and emotionally it was dark,” she said.

Finally after six years, doctors discovered Chris had a rare, chronic pain condition called TN or Trigeminal Neuralgia.  It affects the trigeminal nerve that carries sensation to the face and brain.  It’s also known as the Suicide Disease.  “Because people just can’t get out of the pain.  And so they will eventually take their own life,” Chris explained. 

“It was very stressful.  It controlled everything about our lives.  Every decision that was made was controlled by the pain,” said Dave. 

For the next nine years, doctors treated Chris with medications, injections, and surgeries but they provided only temporary relief.  Chris and Dave say during this time they prayed for everything – except healing. 

“We prayed to get the right doctor who would know what was going on. We prayed to get the right procedure, but never did we know to just pray to take it away,” Chris said.

So with all her options exhausted, Chris asked God to help her cope with the pain.

“You have to help me.  I can’t do this…. A lot of just looking for strength.  I was understanding I was going to have to live with this.  ‘Well if I have to live with it God, you have to help me to live with it!  I can’t do it all by myself so you’re going to have to step in and help me.’”

In August 2012, Dave encouraged her to attend a healing service hosted by a local pastor, Tim McCarthy. 

suicidediseaseThe guest speaker was Marlene Klepees, a woman healed of Cerebral Palsy.  Pastor Tim introduced her by showing her story that once aired on The 700 Club

Chris said, “Afterwards Pastor Tim said, ‘Marlene will pray for people if you’d like prayer.’  So I look at Dave and I’m like, ‘Okay let’s go. Time to go home.’  He’s like, ‘Are you kidding?  You are going up for prayer.’” 

Reluctantly she went forward.  “I said, ‘Look, I don’t believe in this whole healing business.’ And she looked and she says ‘Okay.’”

Marlene remembers, “I was like, ‘Okay, I’ll believe for you.  That’s not a hard task.’ Then I remember feeling that it was very important to touch the side of her face.”

“Nobody ever touched my face because it would just elicit extreme pain.  So she puts her hand on my face and says just a simple prayer.  She’s getting very bouncy and joyous and she’s like, ‘Oh, I didn’t expect that.  There it is!’  And of course I don’t say ‘Yes, I’m feeling heat in the back of my neck.’  She finishes the prayer and says ‘Okay.’ Then I say, ‘Thank you very much.  Have safe travels home.’”

As the couple headed home a tingling sensation spread throughout the left side of Chris’ face. 

For 25 minutes I had that.  And then I had nothing.  My face just opened up.  My eye opened and I had no pain.  We were both just confused.  Where’s the pain?  It had been 15 years! It was gone.”

17022315_1867722066842236_1488910348571738507_nChris was in awe of what God had done.  “In that moment I was quiet. The pain was gone but there was no reason for me to be healed.  I wasn’t in the Word all the time.  I wasn’t actively asking for healing.  And I was healed, only because He loves me.”

Chris and Dave say the miracle made them reevaluate their priorities.  They quit their jobs and sold their belongings. Today they travel as missionaries and spread the word about God’s healing power. 

“Because He’s absolutely incredible – that I could go from being so sick, to this.  It’s just amazing and we have the most blessed life,” said Chris.

Kelsey Hays-Detailed Report of Her Healing

Young Girl Goes to Heavenly Surgery Room; Receives Healing From Crippling Diseases by Teresa Neumann-BCN Exclusive : May 1, 2008 : Lakeland Revival, Hays family

A desperate missionary family, unfamiliar with healing revivals, takes their daughter to Lakeland where she has an encounter with Jesus.

(Lakeland, Florida)-Pastor Stephen Strader of Ignited Church in Lakeland, Florida, where a massive revival has broken out, contacted Breaking Christian News about an amazing healing that took place there on Saturday, April 26, in which 14-year-old Kelsey Hays was healed from multiple immune diseases.

Kelsey HaysI telephoned Kelsey’s mother, Lesley, of Kansas City, Missouri, on Tuesday, April 29, to ask her details of what happened. She and Kelsey were still in Lakeland, preparing to fly back to Kansas City where they attend the International House of Prayer (IHOP).

Some background on Kelsey and her family:

At the age of 9, Kelsey was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease, an immune related thyroid condition. Later she acquired Hepatitis C, which her mother says she “fought off,” but in the process it left her body weakened and subject to other immunological diseases.

Mr. and Mrs. Hayes and their family have been missionaries in Mexico-and most recently Ecuador-for at least ten years. In September of last year, they had arrived back in the states for a furlough. Shortly thereafter, in October, Kelsey fell victim to a variety of increasingly serious illnesses. She had her gall bladder removed and during the surgery doctors noticed that her liver was scarred and infected. Later, doctors believed inflammation from the infection had entered the lining of her stomach and was attacking her central nervous system. By April, Kelsey’s parents and her baffled doctors were at their wit’s ends. She was in continual, intense, and severely crippling pain, taking up to 30 pills a day to try and manage it.

Then one day someone at the Hays’ church approached them with news of the revival in Lakeland and offered to pay the family’s way there. Though they had never experienced meetings such as the ones they were about to attend, the Hays were desperate. Also, Lesley said Kelsey had shared with them a significant vision she had in March of this year, the Saturday before Easter Sunday. In the vision, Kelsey said she found herself connected to an IV, standing before the Throne of God. Jesus came down and cut the IV tube and then God the Father came down, removed the IV from her hand, took off her hospital gown and said, “It’s done!” (The day after the vision, noted Lesley, was the worst day of pain Kelsey had ever had.)

Saturday, April 26, Lakeland, Florida:

By the time Kelsey and her parents arrived at the venue in Lakeland it was 6:00 in the evening. The lines of people stretching for blocks outside of the church told them that it was filled to capacity and they would not be able to get in. Standing in the crowd, the Hays heard story after story of healings and miracles happening around the world even to those not present in the meetings. Somehow, Lesley and Kelsey were finally able to get in (she thought because they had helped another suffering couple to get in), but Mr. Hays remained outside.

Kelsey was in so much pain and so fatigued she couldn’t walk. Her mother literally dragged, and half carried, her up to the only space available in the balcony where they began to cry and worship the Lord. It’s all they could do, she said. Standing next to them were a man and woman; complete strangers. The woman turned to Kelsey and said, “I believe God wants to give you new organs.” (Kelsey’s gall bladder had been removed.) The man looked at Lesley and said, “I just saw you in a dream recently. I saw myself carrying your daughter down to the stage to get prayer.”

Lakeland Healing RevivalEven though at the time Todd was taking testimonies from people who had been healed, the man offered to help take Kelsey down to get prayer. Lesley, unfamiliar with the type of meeting she was in, was afraid of breaking protocol and hesitated. Moments later, Todd stopped the testimonies and said, “I see someone with an IV pain drip in their left arm. Who is that?” Remembering Kelsey’s vision of standing before the throne with her IV, her mother took up the man’s offer. He carried Kelsey down to the stage. Todd prayed a simple prayer, touched Kelsey’s forehead and she fell out under the power of the Spirit for about 45 minutes, said Lesley.

What was happening to Kelsey during this time?

According to her mother, Kelsey said while she was “out” she was taken to Heaven. She found herself in a celestial surgical room where Jesus stood next to her looking right down at her, directly face-to-face. He said to her, “Keep your eyes on me, Kelsey. It’ll be ok.”

She saw angels all around her; she felt them kneading her stomach, doing deep massage on her entire body, especially her legs and arms which had been so weak. At one point while Kelsey was lying on the floor under the Spirit, her mother said Todd announced publicly: “Look! There’s angels over her.”

When Kelsey finally came to and stood up, Todd asked her how she felt. “I feel nothing,” said Kelsey. “I feel NO PAIN!”

At this writing, it has been four days since Kelsey has experienced God’s extraordinary touch of healing and she is still without pain. She’s feeling just like a 14-year old girl should feel.

Kelsey Hays Testifies of Jesus Her Healer

It is real…14 year Old Kelsey Hays was healed at the Lakeland Revival. Fast forward to 3:38:18 and you will see and hear her testify of what the Lord has done.

It is real…we’ve all been praying for her around here for a long time. She has been hospitalized many times. Jesus healed her. I don’t care what the doubters or critics say. This little girl who loves JESUS is healed. The Dr.’s couldn’t fix here and neither could the doubting Theologians.

Florida Healing Testimony

Kelsey Hayes was healed! She’s the teenage girl that we pray for a lot at IHOP. her picture is everywhere. at CEC this morning, We heard the story of how she got healed in Florida last night. She suffered from Hep C and was in chronic pain and frequently was hospitalized.

Someone went up to her parents in the GPR and told them they should take Kelsey to the revival and that they would pay for the trip. When they got there, she was in so much pain that she was curled up like a ball, yet still worshipping God. She was in so much pain she couldn’t really walk. then this man went up to Kelsey’s mom and told her he felt like he was supposed to help carry her up on stage.

When todd bentley prayed for her, she “went down” with the HS for 20 minutes. Todd said he could see an angel doing surgery on her. kelsey said she felt the angels pushing on her organs and re-shaping her organs. an hour later, she had no more pain in her body. She was wearing a “signs and wonders camp” T-shirt from IHOP. Todd was like “signs and wonders!” he asked her where she’s from and she said KC. and he said…”that’s where the healing revival is going!!!”

While all of the details in this post may not be retold 100% accurately. We know from a phone call one of the CEC staff had with her mom that this is real! I don’t care what the Todd Bentley nay sayers…claim we know this one is real and it is more than emotional hype or a pschosomatic illness…this one is verifyable. The CEC has prayed so much for this girl.

She was broadcast on UStream.tv giving her testimony Sunday morning does anyone know if the video is available online? All I found at UStream.tv was other services!
