Chaplain Ruby's Miracle Healing


"I will restore you to health and heal your wounds, declares the LORD!" 

Jeremiah 30:17

My name is Ruby.  I've known the Lord as my Savior since I was 14 years old.  I grew up on the west coast of British Columbia, Canada.  In all honesty my walk with the Lord has not always been on track.  I've always loved and trusted the Lord but I haven't always walked with Him.  I've wasted a lot of time focusing on my own needs and pleasures, instead of spending time with God and seeking His vision for my life and living for Him. (2 Timothy 3:14-17)

When I was 27 years old, my husband of 7 years shot me with a 38-caliber revolver at close range with the intent to kill me, because I had filed for divorce because of physical and mental cruelty. With the last bullet he shot himself in the head and was killed.


My mother and 5-year-old daughter witnessed the shooting and were deeply traumatized.  I prayed as I laid on the ground that God would forgive me and take me to Heaven.  But He had other plans for me.  The Lord completely healed me after two years of recuperation!  It was only by the grace of God that I am still alive today.  I received a miracle healing from God and a second chance in life!

I have been serving as a Hope Chaplain for 7 years now and it has been a wonderfully rewarding experience.  It has been such a blessing for me to share the love Jesus with those in the hospital.  I want everyone to know the joy He gives and His wonderful blessings of provision for our everyday life.  I find myself more blessed by the patients and being there for them, as I continue to give my time and prayers to serve them.  God has filled me with so much love and joy because of His goodness.

Here is my message to all new Chaplains and those who are considering becoming a Chaplain...

"God will provide all that you need in Christ Jesus to guide and direct your every word and deed, because He loves you and wants you to succeed in your ministry.  Never stop praying, reading His word and seeking the guidance of the Holy Spirit.  It is God's gift to you." (Ephesians 3:8-9)
