“Mike and Ghilia Smith believe serving God today is more exciting than ever before and that God has special assignments for His people if we are willing to answer His call,” an FGBMFI news release said. “They are passionate about encouraging the Body of Christ by sharing their testimony of the miracles God has done in their lives.”
In 1989, Mike Smith was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, which is considered incurable. Over the next nine years he was hospitalized four times. On two occasions his condition was so severe doctors insisted the surgical removal of his bowel was necessary. During his illness, Mike and Ghilia were faced with many challenging decisions, but by the wisdom and grace of God, Mike was completely healed without surgery, the news release said.
“While sharing their testimony in various churches, many have received physical healing and encouragement. They believe the trials we go through are worth it if God can use them for His glory,” the news release said.
Mike and Ghilia are members of the New Life Temple Church in Cincinnati. Mike is also the treasurer and chaplain of Full Gospel Businessmen’s Fellowship in Hamilton/Fairfield. They believe that God’s love shines the brightest when we are in our darkest times.
