Marolyn Ford Fund for Ministry Trip

$550 of $7,000 goal

Raised by 7 people in 4 months
Created December 26, 2018
Fundraising Team

In August 2019, I will be going to Africa and India to speak in their Crusade meetings and to share my life story and teach. These are very poor people and have no money available to fund my trip. We are estimating the cost for this trip to be about $7,000. If you find yourself moved to donate towards my trip I would be so grateful. 

Read below for the two miracles that God has blessed me with. My ministry there will be centered around teaching faith, hope, trust, and prayer. 

After going blind at age 18, who would have thought that those same blind eyes would one day see?  Thirteen years later, they miraculously did!

Marolyn’s story of blindness was a progression.  She could see forms, but not faces but that didn’t stop her even after that partial sight left.  She attended Tennessee Temple University and then the Arkansas Enterprise for the Blind where she learned to adapt to living as a blind person. She continued on to complete her doctorate degree at Primus University. 

Thinking medical science would, some day, provide a “cure”, she made sure to move her eyes in the direction of any sound she heard in an effort to keep her muscles healthy.  The thought of miraculous sight hadn’t even crossed her mind.  Then one day . . . it did!

After the miracle or restored signt Marolyn traveled extensively for the next 25 years, singing and sharing her miracle story. Marolyn spoke to millions of people worldwide speaking in crusades, universities, corporations, teaching conferences, and television and radio interviews. Additionally, she engaged in smaller meetings including retreats, church meetings, and club banquets.

Twenty four years later, after a fall, she broke her back and started having difficulty eating, drinking and eliminating; she now had total digestive paralysis!  After four years of alternative elimination processes, the colon’s elasticity was gone and therefore created a need for intravenous feeding through the subclavian heart vein.  Throughout the next 8 years there were many battles with Sepsis requiring hospitalizations every year, then every six months and eventually every three weeks.  Her body’s ability to fight infection and maintain life was nearly gone.  Since she couldn’t eat, in order to avoid lockjaw, she was required to exercise her jaw muscles by chewing the outer edge of a pizza crust, like a dog chews a bone.  She also needed to stimulate her taste buds with a blueberry, so that she would not lose her ability to taste food; the ability to swallow anything was gone.  At a height of 5’6”, weighing only 92 lbs. death’s door was a familiar sight.

In the pit of despair with death right around the corner she heard the third verse of the hymn entitled “Leave it there” (listen here) www.roryfeek.com and it was just what she needed.  “If your body suffers pain, and your health you can’t regain, and your soul is almost sinking in despair; Jesus knows the pain you feel, he can save and he can heal.”  These words were just what Marolyn needed to hear and gave her the faith she needed to continue on. 

Six months later, the ability to speak or move was nearly impossible, but she managed between breaths to ask her husband to pray one . . . last . . . time. . . Never able to stay awake except for the nurse giving Marolyn her medication, she fell asleep after the prayer.  Acie had to leave the house by 5:00 a.m. the following morning.  He knew Marolyn was still breathing when he left. 

The quivering of her body had subsided.  Still in this world when she awoke, she wondered if God had intervened.  The nurse gave her the blueberry needed to stimulate her taste buds and to her surprise, she was able to swallow it!  It actually went down! This had been a twelve year struggle with life and death.

We serve a mighty God who said, “My Son, pay attention to what I say, listen closely to  my words: Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to a man’s whole body.”  Prob 4:20-22 (NIV).  Maroyn’s healing had come. Praise God!

Since her second miracle of restored health, Marolyn is fully active in ministry once again. She is available to speak for your organization.

Work is progressing involving the crusade meetings in Africa and India wherein I have been asked to speak. We need your prayers and support for this great and wonderful ministry. Be one who plants seeds for a harvest. It's God's way of providing for his children. He works in our lives through multiplication. The seeds you plant are for your own barn's to be filled to overflowing. God doesn't need your supply. He owns everything. He needs His people to be blessed in order that they can give in support of God's work on earth. He works through people. He blesses those who give. Give generously and God will bless you with more abundance, in order that you can give again. Keep planting seeds and continue reaping a harvest. This is a new work, amongst poor people. We desperately need your help. Thank you for your support.

Over the years I have shared my miracle story all over the world. This year I have been invited to speak in two Crusade meetings in So. Africa. One in Blantyre, So. Africa and the other in Lilongwe, So. Africa. From there I will fly into India to hold several meetings in Guntur India. These are poor areas. They can not cover my expenses to come. They are trusting the Lord for my provisions, as well as the needs for the Crusade Meetings. They are asking for a preacher to come also who might feel called to come and preach in the meetings. If that person is you, please contact me.. marolynford.com They have a real burden for the lost souls.

Over the years I have shared my miracle story in many countries. This year I have been invited to speak in two Crusade meetings in So. Africa. One in Blantyre, the other in Lilongwe, So. Africa. From Africa I will fly into India for several meetings there. I will be speaking several times daily sharing my story and teaching on Prayer and Faith. These minister's have a real burden to win the lost for Christ. These are poor people who
cannot finance my trip or lodging. They are trusting the Lord will provide the funding for me to come. We know God will provide. They are asking for a minister of the Word to come and preach also. If you are that person God is calling, please make contact with me.

Over the years I have traveled to many countries sharing my life story of two fantastic miracles. This year I have been asked to speak in two Crusade Meetings: One in Blantyre, So. Africa and the other in Lilongwe, So. Africa. From Africa I will fly into Guntur, So. India to speak in several meetings there. These Pastors are burdened to see thousands to come to the Lord. The Crusade Meetings are a big undertaking for them. I will be speaking everyday in the meetings. I do not have the financial backing. They are praying God will supply the need for the Crusade Meetings and we are trusting the Lord will supply my need for the trip as well. They are asking if I can bring a minister with me who can preach for them also. If you are that preacher God is calling to go on my team, please contact me.
Let me tell you about my two miracles that I will be sharing. I will also be teaching on prayer and faith in the meetings.

Things are progressing well regarding my missions trip to Africa and India. I will be speaking in two crusade meetings in 2 different cities in Africa and ten days in India. The Pastor's are very excited about having a women speaker. They have difficulty getting the women to attend meetings with only men speakers. I will be sharing my miracle story as well as teaching on the principles of faith, trust and prayer. They understand that my coming to minister there is dependent upon the finances coming in. Thank you for helping in this endeavor.
