When I got married in 1991, I was allowed the entry of the faith by my friend's guidance. About the same time, my father was taken to the hospital with cerebral infarction. When the doctor said that he had a brain tumor and few months of life, I lost all hope.
I desperately continued Johrei for him to be healed, no matter what other people would think. Few days later, he discharged a great amount of blood. Later when the reexamination was carried out, the egg-sized brain tumor in the CT image had disappeared. Both the doctor and we were astonished, and I was grateful from bottom of my heart that Meishu-sama had used me to show the miracle.
He recovered little by little and could meet his first grandchild a year later. I was deeply moved and motivated to lead more than 10 people to the faith. I was very grateful to be used by Meishu-sama.
Few years later, however, the deep emotion faded away, and I ran into debt for my weakness and fell into a crisis of a divorce. The teacher of a branch encouraged my wife, "Why don't you assume it as your purification and stick with it for your child?" So she held back the divorce. I regretted what I had done. I started working part time job at night for the debt payments as much as possible. There were absolutely hard days, and I believe that my wife had much more difficult days.
In April 2008, I seriously burned my neck to the head out of my carelessness. Immediately, I poured water on myself from the head to the neck. According to a person at the scene, while I was pouring water on myself, my skin of the neck and face was festering and forming many blisters. He thought that it was not a trifling matter.
I was rushed into a hospital, and my face, neck, and head were covered up with ice pads. I could not sleep for two days for the awful pain. My hair, face, and neck were hideously burned. It was really serious injury that it was a miracle that I survived. Many people gave me Johrei, so that I could leave the hospital in few days. Two months later, burn scars were completely and cleanly healed. It was an incident which I experienced wonderfulness of Johrei firsthand.
I had lived in a rented house since the marriage. Lately, we found a property, which both my wife and I were satisfied with the price, location and number of rooms. There were tens of applicants for the property, yet miraculously we got the first priority and acquired our new house. We will leave the 17-years rented house and start a new life.. Without faith, I would not get to where I am now. I am fully grateful to be connected with Meishu-sama and change my life. To repay to the god for many blessings that I have received, I would like to do Johrei and tell my story to as many people as possible.
