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!
Sarah Manley (1916-2008):
A very sweet "senior" lady & member of our
North Side baptist Church, she is the mother of Ben Manley (Ben & I were in a men's group together several
years in the 90s) and grandmother of Belinda Cress...all of Lexington County, S. C. My guess
is that Miss Sarah was born about 1930, and she has been widowed many years (I heard Ben tell
many stories of Mr. Manley's frequent examples of acts of quiet & personal Christian
service to people he encountered as a salesman).
Some years ago, Miss Sarah was diagnosed
with non-Hodgkin malignant lymphoma. She told me and Betty (after church services early in
Jan. 2003) that, about some time after her 5th chemotherapy treatment, she had a divine
encounter. While alone one night, her room filled with a bright light, and she became aware
of an assuring "voice" in her mind telling her that "I will cure you of this cancer". And she
could feel someone holding her hand as this message was conveyed. And she was filled with a
sense of peace, well-being, and assurance! This experience is a little remindful of near death experiences (NDE info & cases, HERE). See other faith & health information [here]. Her cemetery.

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
