Life Stories: Maria Amaral

1 Peter 3:15

But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect

Maria: I dated my husband for 3 years, then got married in 1969, and in 1970 I had my first born. My wonderful son Joe. When he was 2 years old I came to Canada in 1972. Not too long after that I was sick, always sick, then somebody told her there was this place you go and pray, you get healed, a young man was praying for people to get healed. He touched me and I got healed. I felt gratitude in my heart to just thank Him,

"Lord you are so real, thank you, thank you for healing me!"

I started to watch 100 Huntley Street and David Mainse was on talking.

"If you need to make sure you are saved, call the prayer lines."

I called, and this wonderful lady came on the phone. She talked me through the scriptures and why Jesus came, the point of Him coming was not just to heal your body, it's to heal your soul. It was like life-changing. My eyes go, ah! I prayed the sinner's prayer. I repent, I don't know Lord that you are so good, you not just healed me, you saved me!

Her son Joe says: It was just like a domino effect and to this day there are dozens of us who have come to know the Lord, and are involved in ministry, and are living a Godly life, and it's amazing to see because of one person and a changed God made in their lives. I love the fact that my mom could call in, late at night on a Friday night, where most prayer lines are closed, but Huntley Street has them 24/7. She was able to call in and get introduced to the faith and that has impacted my entire family, and my entire life. This is a field worth planting in, this is a ministry worth sowing in, and what's powerful is you never know what your gift is going to do. You may not be aware that you gift is even helping someone in your own life. I want to encourage people to ask God what He would have them do. I really believe, with all my heart that this is something worth investing in.


Huntley Street was there for me, and I thank God for everybody that makes it possible. Thank You 100 Huntley Street partners, thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Dear God, sometimes my "testing" season seems so long. Please give me courage to endure until the end. Help me not to bail! You said you would bless me for hanging in there - I will not give up on you or your promises. You are with me and will see me through this trial.
