Since 2006, I have had significant hearing loss in my right ear due to deployments with the military. While taking a break on the Wilderness Intensive, my team prayed for my hearing to be restored and all ringing to stop and – praise God – as they prayed for my ear, all ringing stopped, and my hearing has fully been restored! Today, I get the joy of hearing a whisper from my wife and the sound of my children playing in the other room.
