Feast Testimonies: Nathalie Valcke & Tati Matsuda

Healed at the Feast - Testimony of Nathalie Valcke, Feast team member from Belgium

"I was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 29 and with a degenerative disease called Ankylosing Spondylitis, which caused sciatica and constant burning sensations in my back. Six years ago, my husband and I received a calling for Israel and recently we got connected with the ICEJ.

2019 was our first Feast of Tabernacles, and even with my health condition, I wanted to volunteer a as Feast team member. You can probably imagine how challenging it was for me to be on the Ushering team, especially when this position involves long periods of time standing on my feet. This Feast would be quite an effort!

On the second night, my husband and I were asked to represent our country at the Parade of Nations, as we were the only people from Belgium at the Feast. The previous day had already exhausted me, but after the Parade on the second night, I was really worn out. Noticing how tired I looked, an ICEJ staff member forced me to sit down with her and to just enjoy the rest of the evening.

That very night, ICEJ President Jürgen Bühler made an altar call for those who needed prayer, but I didn’t have the strength to go all the way to the front. As he prayed, I heard a little "click" in my back and I realized the burning in my back which had ruined my life for the past 19 years had completely disappeared! I was set free and therefore was able to continue my service on the Ushering team for the rest of the Feast with no pain up to this day. All glory to God!

After the Feast, that same ICEJ staff member and I met in the Old City and I told her the burning back pain was gone, but I still had a lot of water retention in my legs and feet, which made it difficult to walk. She prayed for healing and when I woke up the next morning, all the water retention in my feet was gone until we left Israel two weeks later! Thank you, Lord.
I encourage you to come to the Feast, to serve as a Feast team member and to experience your own personal miracle! Jesus is alive and He will touch you just as He touched me!”
