Only by His Grace & Goodness: Suzanne Chin, August 2009
On 20th April 2009, that Monday morning I set out on my usual early morning walk with my dog. Just 15 minutes into the walk, I turned for home. Upon arrival, I apparently told my husband John that I was feeling somewhat faint, the last thing I recall was John saying how pale I looked as he helped me into bed and saying that he would call an ambulance. That was the last thing I remembered until I woke from my coma. While I was in a coma, I recall being on a bed and I was not being able to move or speak. A man appeared by my side. He looked peaceful enough but something in me (I believe it was the prompting of the Holy Spirit) knew that he was evil. He communicated to me without speaking. He told me that if I wanted to get up or speak, all I would have to do was to follow him, to succumb to him. I told him to leave me alone and declared that I was a child of God. Over and over again I said this and recited the Lords’ prayer and every passage from the Bible that I could recall and sang every hymn/song that I remembered. I also remember calling out to Jesus and asking Him to save me. The man faded in and out several times and on the last occasion, he started to get angry. He threatened to take my daughter if I refused to follow him. Again, without hesitation I told him that I knew he was lying and that he had no power over me. It was at that moment that I woke from my coma to see my husband John standing by my bed. I thank God for His kindness and love and for His wonderful gift to me and will never forget this remarkable event in my life. Glory be to God!

Let him who needs a miracle, claim one – Dr Alan Chin, August 2009
On the morning of Monday, 20 of April 2009, I received a call from my brother–in-law John that my sister Suzanne had suffered a cardiac arrest and was warded in ICU in hospital in Hong Kong. When I saw Suzanne in ICU, she did not look good. She was on a ventilator; her pupils were 4mm fixed and dilated. I spent the night in hospital praying and interceding. I proclaimed Psalm118:17 over Suzanne that she shall not die but live to declare the works of the Lord. The respiratory physician advised John to consider switching off the ventilator as Suzanne was now dead and there was no hope of recovery. She added in medical history there were no cases of anybody recovering from BSD. I contacted my friends in Singapore to pray for Suzanne.
Things started to turn around on Wednesday. Early that morning, the nurses noticed slight movement as they were sucking phlegm from her intubation tube. On Thursday 23 April, while being reassessed Suzanne was able to nod her head twice when asked to. By Friday 24 April, Suzanne was fully conscious and able to recognize all who visited her. Suzanne was extubated on Saturday, 25 April. She was discharged the following Tuesday. I hope that Suzanne’s miraculous resurrection will be a source of comfort, strength and encouragement of the reality of God’s amazing grace, mercy and goodness.
Revelation 19:10b states: For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
Let him or her who needs a miracle from God, claim one.
