God’s Protection: Motorcycle Accident

On June 1st, 2012, I was rear ended while riding my motorcycle to work on the Baltimore Beltway. During impact, my motorcycle remained standing. After the collision, my bike received many repairs but I was not harmed at all! It is true that God and his angels protect us.


Luke 4:10-11 “For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee: And in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.” KJV

God’s Sovereignty: My Family Caretaker

I came from Liberia 14 months ago and left behind my seven children, 6 boys and 1 girl, from the ages of 33 to 52. I have prayed everyday that God would watch over them and he has done just that. I received a phone call from one of my sons letting me know that all of my children are doing well. I want to thank the Lord for watching over and protecting my children!


Matthew 6:25-26 “Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body what ye shall put on. Is not life more than the meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?” KJV

God’s Healing: Healing from Acid Reflux

Since 1995, I have suffered and dealt with acid reflux that has progressively gotten worse over the years. On March 21, 2012, I was at New Life Sanctuary on a Tuesday night Deliverance Service when God suddenly touched and healed me! Three years later, I am totally healed and have not dealt with acid reflux ever again! Thank you Jesus!

God’s Healing: Healing of Ear Pain

Last week God healed me of a constant dripping water noise I had for over a year in my left ear. God is good, merciful, loving and faithful to His Word and His promises. I am truly grateful.


Isaiah 53:5 “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” KJV

God’s Love: Purpose for Me

I wanted to thank God for saving me from a life of drugs and alcohol. I was a smoker for over 22 years, drank alcohol, and abused prescription drugs. This life cycle was a deadly disease that I couldn't seem to escape. I finally decided to get into a rehab center and I believe it was God's way of getting my attention. I turned to God through the darkest days of my life and He delivered me and set me free from all of those addictions, and repositioned my outlook and priorities in life. He filled me with his joy and I now have such a peace in my life. Because of this encounter, I know for sure that we all have a divine plan and purpose! God is so good! I couldn't have done it without God.


Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and hope.” ESV

God’s Deliverance: Deliverance from a Spirit of Sleep Deprivation

After working night shifts for 13 years I finally went back to a day shift in 2007. Since 2007, I've struggled with having restful sleep since I was so used to being up all night for the previous 13 years. On December 23, 2014, during a Tuesday night Deliverance Service, Pastor Blane called me up for prayer for sleep deprivation. God delivered me that Tuesday and I have never had a problem sleeping at night! I thank God for completely setting me free! 


Psalms 127:2 “It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.” KJV

God’s Favor: Career Take Off

Throughout the years I've been here at New Life Sanctuary, my life has never been the same. After I graduated high school, I chose to attend a career school to get a certificate in Medical Coding. Some family and friends told me I was wrong and that I should go straight to college because the path I had chosen would do nothing for me. However God told me to do this certificate program, and I believed I would find favor for trusting in Him over man. When I finished my program, I got a job at Johns Hopkins University as a coder for the Oncology Department. No one ever at that school that I attended has ever gotten a job so well off and received the pay that I am getting (Double than the normal student coming right out of school salary). Even at the job, most people applying were in their 30-40s and God allowed an 18 year old at the time to get the job. Now I am attending college and paying for my tuition out of pocket. I'd like to thank God for finding favor in me and showing me that when God opens a door, no man can close it!


Luke 12:31 “But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.” KJV

God’s Purpose: Prayers for a Godly Wife

I had asked the Lord consistently for 20 years for a Godly wife but it was to no avail. I came to New Life Sanctuary about five years ago and Pastor Blane told me that God was probably waiting for me to get RIGHT with the Lord before He would bless me with a wife. As time progressed, Pastor Blanes words of getting RIGHT were spot on. I sought after God with all my heart, became actively involved in the ministry, and eventually met my future wife within the church. I found out that she wanted to marry her best friend and over a period of about two years, I became her best friend and she fell in love with me. Pastor Blane then married us in New Life Sanctuary in front of all our church family. God blessed me with not only the best wife in the world, but the best person I have ever met. God is truly great.


Matthew 6:33 “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” KJV

God’s Healing: Healing from Kidney Stones

A few months ago I had a kidney stone and it was giving me terrible pain for about 8 hours straight. After the pain was becoming unbearable, my wife and I rushed to the hospital. The doctors told me I had a very large sized stone and that they were going to have to operate on me. They informed me that I would have a lot of pain when it passed. I called Pastor Blane and asked him to agree with me in prayer for a healing. Pastor Blane prayed a short prayer and said, "Jesus the chief cornerstone CRUSHES that stone!" I then in faith told the doctors and nurses that I was healed by Jesus! They responded by walking out of the room shaking their heads. I then walked out of the emergency room, went out with my wife, ate two slices of pizza, and never had pain again. I didn't even need to take the pain medication they gave me. Jesus, the chief cornerstone, really did CRUSH the stone!


Ephesians 2:19-20 “Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone.” KJV

God’s Intervention: Help in a Troubling Time

We all struggle in life with day to day situations that leave us wondering what we are to do. I always find myself turning to God in these times and I never hold anything back. I love that God is always there to listen to our problems and that he even cares enough to intervene on our behalf in our situations. Simply put, I thank God that he cares about us and answers our prayers.


1 John 5:14 “And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask anything according to his will, will heareth us.” KJV

God’s Healing: Divine Recovery

I was in a terrible motor vehicle accident. This accident left me in a coma and remained Shock Trauma ICU for over a month. Many friends, family and coworkers did not think I would survive an injury like that. However God had a plan and allowed me to fully recover. The recovery was truly miraculous and God is amazing!


Psalms 37:23 “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.” KJV

God’s Healing: Power of Worship

I love worship here at New Life Sanctuary. You can really feel the presence of God in this place. Since I have been here, God has delivered me from addiction to prescription meds and healed injured discs in both my neck and back. Since then, I have been delivered and healed from high blood pressure, high cholesterol, allergies and migraines.


I Peter 2:24 “Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.” KJV
