Hi Everyone. I'm Zoë Rudolph and I'm 14 years of age. I would love to share my testimony. On the 31st of August 2019 I started getting really sharp pains in my right abdominal area. The pain continued throughout the night and I did not get any sleep. On Sunday morning I woke up and suddenly couldn't walk, the pain was so unbearable. My grandfather took me to the nearest doctor which wasn't as near as it seemed because on a Sunday all the doctors are always closed. The doctor then examined me and sent me to Red Cross Hospital with immediate effect. My grandfather informed my church family to pray for me. I was so overwhelmed and scared. When I got to the hospital my temperature was extremely high and I was nauseous. I then went for a scan to see what was wrong. A few minutes later the doctors informed me that they couldn't seem to find out what was wrong . They said that it might be my appendix . My doctor then took some of my blood, as well as put me on a drip for energy . I was crying as she was putting the needle in my arm but my father calmed me down. The doctor then had a very serious conversation with my parents and gave them an ultimatum. It's either that they would give me pain medication and I could go home, and if it turns out to be my appendix I might not make it, or they would do the surgery to see if it is my appendix. We then prayed about it and decided that the surgery would be best because my parents did not want to risk losing me. I had to stay at the hospital for the night and the next morning at 9am I had to go in for surgery. My family and I prayed before I had to go into theatre. As I was waiting for them to fetch me I had so much peace and faith that God will cover me and protect me. I believed and went into theatre with God by my side. I was in surgery for 2 hours and 30 minutes. I was supposed to only be in theatre for 1 hour but it then turned out to be my appendix. It had already burst before the surgery and the poison liquid started leaking out into my body. Luckily I had surgery just in time to stop the leakage. Many doctors and nurses said that I was lucky to be alive but I told them that I am blessed. God's protective hands was with me, He healed me. He never gave up on me! Because He truly loves me. Never doubt God in any situation you're in. Never dilute your prayer with worry and anxiety!! God is and will always be there. He never sleeps nor slumbers.
