Massive Stroke - Healed
- 'Moore' Faith in God -
|Alan and Debbie Moore prioritized studying|
and discussing the Scriptures together.
The Moores were introduced to Andrew’s teaching four years ago when he visited their church in Decatur, Texas. After their introduction, the Moores spent many hours studying Andrew's teachings called Christian Survival Kit and Harnessing Your Emotions.

On July 15, 2009, Alan and Debbie returned home after working their ten-hour shifts at Kenneth Copeland Ministries, where they both serve as prayer ministers. Although it was a steamy 104 degrees outdoors, Alan felt it would be okay if he did some yard work. Not long after Alan went outside, Debbie felt prompted by the Holy Spirit to go outside as well. She exited the house only to find Alan on the ground at the end of their driveway. Debbie spoke to him, but Alan didn’t respond, and his eyes were fluttering rapidly. She raised her voice and shouted, “You are not going to leave me!”

in Fort Worth, Texas.
“Because of the many hours Alan and I listened to Andrew’s teaching on Harnessing Your Emotions and Christian Survival, I found it was really not a struggle to keep my emotions in check. I was amazed at the change that had taken place from the way I used to handle problems. I was so peaceful,” Debbie recalls.

The next morning Debbie called her sister, Denise, in Pennsylvania to let her know what was going on, and she offered to come to Texas to be with Debbie. Upon arriving at the hospital, Denise asked Debbie what the doctors were saying, but Debbie refused to repeat their diagnosis.

Doctors continued to deliver the grim news of their observations to Debbie, sharing that Alan was paralyzed on the left side of his body, he could not swallow or speak, and that he had lost his peripheral vision. However Debbie was not shaken. In fact, Alan's neurologist, Dr. Chunduri was worried that she wasn’t taking him seriously. “She didn’t flinch—she didn’t seem to understand,” he said.

Three days after having the stroke, a nurse came to test Alan’s vision. She asked him to follow a small light, using only his eyes. To her surprise, he was able to follow the light perfectly, even in his peripheral. Alan’s speech also began to improve and became clearer and clearer as Debbie and her sister forced him to read, aloud, the cards he was receiving.

On Friday, July 24, just nine days after Alan suffered a major stoke, he was discharged from the stroke center. On August 1, he returned to his job. Although his supervisor, Sam Galloway, didn’t want him to work his full ten-hour shift, Alan was determined to walk out his healing. He has been working full-time since his return.

Alan said of his miracle, “I’m going to work hard and I’m going to work strong and I’m going to do it in the Lord’s strength. God is a good God.”
