My sister, lives in South Africa, in a small country town where they recently took the medical center away. The next closest medical facility was near Johannesburg, which is for a woman on her own not safe to drive at all. During 2018 she fell ill and couldn't swallow her food. Rather than seek medical attention, she just lived with it and got thinner and thinner. She would puree everything or the food would get stuck in her throat and choke. She lived with this for most of 2018, and never told me.
I phoned her just before Christmas and she told me about her condition. The next church service I went up for prayer to stand in for my sister. The following week I phoned my sister again and she told me 3 days ago something moved in her throat and she is now able to eat properly again. She said she is feeling great! Glory to God.
