Another Special Life in Christ
These testimony lives are not stories of "role models". Jesus is the
These are lives wonderfully touched & changed by Jesus!
Holland Carter Breland:
The black mole subdued: Doctors removed a dark
skin mole (diagnosis unknown) from Carter's side in 1974. As an "out of the blue" emergency, they opened him up in 1983 with the terrifying discovery
that one of the most fearsome of all cancers, malignant melanoma, had riddled his insides
with more tumors than the doctors could count (it was inconceivable that he would live more
than 6 months). A 53 years old man and a regularly practicing Christian of the Methodist
denomination, he heard his best friend's wife tell of accounts of miraculous healing within
the congregation of Trinity Tabernacle (Pentecostal) Church in West Columbia associated with
"the laying on of hands". Carter Breeland postoperatively decided to attend and went forward
at the invitation to undergo the "laying on of hands". There was a gradual but miraculous
disappearance of the tumors. (As a pathologist, I was familiar with his case and had seen the
diagnostic slides.) He was the recipient of a miracle!
And this also coincided with his beginning use of
"macrobiotics". He became widely locally known as a proponent of macrobiotic dietary
treatment of cancer. And he and Ed Elbrecht started 14 Carrot Whole Foods. The cancer returned in 1995, and he died in West Columbia, S. C. in
January 1997. See other faith & health information [here].

You have just read a very brief example of the
powerful, supernatural transformation of a person's life which is possible through the
acceptance of Jesus as your savior. Are you tired of life as it now is for you? He will
accept you just as you are right this second! Consider accepting Jesus now
