Reported by I.M. in Fukuoka on 5 September 1952
When I recall the past, I am grateful that I am still alive. Here I report my experience with gratitude. I had been healthy until I suddenly felt pain in the back and belly at the end of the last June. The pain occurred once every four or five days. I felt very severe pain. So, I went to a local clinic but the cause was not found. Then I went to the prefectural hospital and received an X-ray treatment four times or so. The cause was still unknown. I took any possible treatments but they didn’t work at all. I depend on religions in the end but they never healed me. I was driven into the abyss of despair. My family thought that I couldn’t by any possibility be healed.
Just then, I heard about Sekai-Meshiya-kyo. On the 3rd of the last December, my neighbour Mr S told me that his son got back his health by a few times of Johrei. I thought that Johrei was a unique remedy that healed disease by just holding a hand. Compare to the other religions I worshipped, Sekai-Meshiya-kyo was something different. I thought that it might heal me. So, I asked Mr H to come to see and perform Johrei on me. Mr H was responsible for a branch place of Sekai-Meshiya-Kyo. When receiving Johrei, I felt better. Mr H told me how Johrei worked. After that, I had pain for a few days. Then something like tofu refuse started to come out with urine. It continued for about five days. I understood that was a purification. Since then, I received Johrei from Mr K, who is a believer in Sekai-Mashiya-kyo, almost every day and Mr H sometimes. I also attended the ceremony held in a local branch place of Sekai-Meshiya-kyo. I never missed it. I also received Johrei from Mr A who is responsible for a branch church of Sekai-Meshiya-kyo. I often visited the brunch church to attend the ceremony and received Johrei. I heard about the faith, too. Then I got better day by day and the pain gradually reduced.
However, the pain suddenly got worse on the 3rd of this January. I suffered very much. When I went to the toilet in the morning on the 4th, a red bean sized stone with a rough surface came out with urine. I got it with noise in the cup that I was holding. I thought that the stone was in the narrow urethra and I felt pain every time it moved. That was the biggest one. Then small and powder-like stones came out without much pain. I believe that the stones were broken into pieces and easily excreted with urine by the grace of God. I passed very cloudy urine once every morning but it became clear after that. As time passed, the pain disappeared and I gained my strength. Now, I have no longer felt pain and I regain health. I was absent for a long time but I started to work again on 2 February. Now, I help for the divine work to propagate the way of salvation to people who suffer from disease while working. I decided to help with the construction of Paradise on Earth even a little. It is pity that an idiotic person like me cannot describe with words how grateful I am to Dai-Komyo-Nyorai-sama and Meshiya-sama. I am just full of gratitude. Thanks to the guidance of Mr A, H and K, we enshrined Komyo-Nyorai-sama and the holy folding screen for ancestors. My elder son and second daughter became a believer in Sekai-Meshiya-kyo, too. We try to brush up ourselves even a little by reading the teachings of Meshiya-sama. Thank you very much, Meshiya-sama. I express my deepest gratitude to him.
