Worship Leader At Water of Life Since The Days It Was Chartered in 1980 Is Home With The Lord
Posted January 26, 2009
Terry Mai led worship on November 23, 2008 and shortly thereafter he experienced severe abdominal pains. On January 10, 2009, Terry was diagnosed with malignant lymphoma located in the abdominal area and it was found to have invaded numerous lymph glands throughout the body. At that time, I knew Terry's condition was critical.
During that period from late November until that date in January when the diagnosis was made, there was much praying here at the office of Water of Life Church for Terry. On the mornings of the 9th and 10th of January, the Lord gave me a sign each day on my digital clock with the time 3:33. I had a previous experience with a sign given to a lady of the time 3:33, as she spoke Father, Son, and Holy Ghost she started speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gave utterance.
Considering those two signs both mornings, I could see God was speaking to me about the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, and I knew in my heart that it applied to Terry. Initially I did not know what it meant, and I said to God, "Are you telling me that this is a work of the Spirit and you are going to take Terry to heaven, or are you going to heal him?"
After several hours of consideration, I decided that God most surely wanted to heal him. I have written this, and I have said this publicly. Now I know that I did not understand what God was saying to me, because rather than heal Terry, which was my desire, Kathy and the girls desire, and everyone else's desire around me, the Lord gathered Terry to be with Him around 5:00 a.m. this morning.
Update: A service was held for Terry on Thursday, January 29, 2009, and the audio from that service is available here.
God bless you,
