It was in 1992 when our Governing Pastor, Bishop Dr. Reese Price Jr., was stricken with Colon Cancer. His condition altered his appearance to an unbelievable degree. A before picture on left in 1992 with Colon Cancer, and on the right in 1996 an after picture of God miraculous healing powers.
On a particular day of Bishop Price illness, he was visited by his brother in law Bishop Jester Purnell, of Terre Haute, IN. Bishop Purnell said to him, Price, evidently God is not through with you yet. Years later from that statement, who would have thought, The late Bishop Jester Purnell, (of Winona, MS.) Bishop Price Governing Pastor of Victory Apostolic Faith Church #7 in Winona, MS. Truly, it was evident, God was not through with Bishop Price.
Bishop Price, recovery of this known deadly disease, had affectionally titled him The MIRACLE Man. God trusted him to keep the faith and to be an example of his healing power to a disbelieving world. Bishop Price, favorite song "Because He Lives, I Can Face Tomorrow, because he lives, all fear is gone. Because I know, who holds the future, my life is worth the living, just because He lives.
THERE IS NO SECRET, what God can do, what he has done for others, He CAN and WILL do for you. Only believe, all things are possible, if you can only believe. There is VICTORY IN WINONA! Come, believing, and receive yours today! Jesus Christ the same, yesterday, and today and for ever. Heb. 13:8.
