My name is Victoria Richardson. I am the mother of a 12 year old girl, and I am writing this to let someone know how grateful I am to have been placed in this ministry from God.
During the end of 2002 to early 2003 I was diagnosed with a degenerative eye disease called Keratoconus, which can lead to substantial vision distortion and or blindness in some cases.
This is exactly what I experienced.   I was driving to work one morning, on a clear and beautiful sunny day, all of a sudden the sun began shining and blinded me. Little did I know, at that moment,  I was really blind.  It was not just a glare that temporarily blurred my sight.
I really couldn't see!  I'm not sure what my first thoughts were, but I do know that this was not on my agenda when I woke up that morning! I  remember sitting in my Explorer rubbing my eyes and crying like a baby! I didnt know what happened and I wanted it to be over.  I felt as if someone was there with there hands or over my eyes. I cried uncontrollably.  It felt like my whole world had crashed down on me.
After finding out what was wrong, I was told the only alternative to recover my sight was surgery.  I have had four surgeries thus far, three corneal transplants on my right eye, and one on my left.   During this time, I had many trips to the hospital with several infections and setbacks.  Not once did any of these doctors tell me that my sight would be recovered in full. I now lost some of my independence.  I could no longer drive nor could I go to work. I was at home for four months without pay, no form of income or money coming in, and I was in need of money for medication, food, bills and rent. All of my bills were past due. But most of all, I had a daughter looking up to me for strength and guidance. The enemy started playing with my mind. I wanted to just sink and cry. The enemy kept telling me I was a failure and this is why all these bad things kept happening. The enemy said  there was no way out.
But one thing is for sure, through it all, God has worked miracles in my life, blessed me, transformed me, lifted, encouraged and healed me, physically, mentally and spiritaually!

Through the preaching, teaching, and prayers of this ministry, and of the prophetic words and wisdom through the spirit of Christ, I can truly say I walk by faith and not by sight.
Not only did God supply my medicine, food,  pay our bills and rent,  but my daughter and I grew closer because we learned that our hope is built on nothing less than Jesus' blood and his righteousness.
God healed my sight and I received my drivers's license after 8 years. May of this year I had two strokes.  Despite the devil's attempts, God keeps blocking it everytime!! I was healed completely with no side effects. God is Good!
I know that God is not finished with me yet!  I will continue to stand on his word! Grace Church Ministries, Inc. has two dynamic Ministry Gifts whom God has placed my family and I  under. Pastor and Co-Pastor Steele has never stopped beliveing in, and praying for us all. We do have a true Prophet of God who has spoken into my life and told me that all these blessings would come. And today, I am a living, breathing, walking, talking, and SEEING miracles of God. I owe it all to God and the Appointed Anointed Ministry Gifts he has placed right here at this bethel spot Grace Church Ministries Inc. (Rev. 12:11 says, we overcome our enemy by the blood of the lamb and by the word or our testimony) And I will tell it Everywhere I go just how good God is!
