Some people profess to believe in God, but they don't know Him, His nature, His love or His power. This was true of Connie Weiskopf for a long time. Connie grew up in a large family with whom she attended a denominational church. It was through her church experience that the blindness of religion covered her eyes. It was there that God, the Father, was misrepresented as a wrathful, angry God, ready to strike her with sickness or to punish her because of her sin.
One particular event during Connie's formative adolescent years caused her to look at life through a filter; at the age of sixteen she was raped. Because of her religious foundation, and misperception of who God is, Connie was unable to turn to Him for comfort. Rather she hid from God; struggling with the shame and guilt she carried by herself. Connie came to blame God for the bad things that happened in her life.

Still unable to turn to God, Connie looked to the world for love, and in her wounded state she became involved with David—another unhealthy relationship. Connie had a second abortion. "David and I aborted our first child together and my heart truly died. I no longer felt. I only existed. No one ever told me I had choices, only that abortion would solve my 'problem'," said Connie.

from San Francisco to SOHO, New York.
Continuing to attend her new church, Connie gave her life to Christ and fell passionately in love with Him. "He became everything I had been searching for. He became my best friend and my husband," Connie said.
|After two years apart, David and|
Connie were reunited and married.
After several relocations, including one back to her home State of Colorado, and a career change in which the Lord led her away from the arts to a position with Life Choices Pregnancy Center, Connie was diagnosed with breast cancer. Prior to her diagnosis, the Lord had been teaching Connie about His healing power, so she sought healing through His Word and prayer from like-minded people in her church.
A friend had given her one of Andrew's tapes several years earlier and she knew that when Andrew prayed, people received healing. Connie contacted AWM and asked if Andrew would come pray for her. The ministry replied that he was unable to accommodate her request, but instead invited her to where Andrew would be ministering at a local church in Colorado Springs.

Although she had been prayed for, Connie underwent surgery a short time later. Following the procedure, during which a surgeon removed a portion of her left breast, the doctor called and said, "We don't know what happened, there was no cancer left." Connie said, "I know what happened. God healed me!" David and Connie praised God and rejoiced in Him!
