About Reverend Benjamin Charles Govier

I have outlived the prognosis of 2 - 5 years for Lou Gehrig's Disease. Read my story, written in October 2005:

http://www.wisconsinchristiannews.com/view_details.php?story_id=738

Since Oct 2005 I was notified by the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation that I qualified for a Training Grant. They would not approve any of my religious goals due to "Separation of Church and State" (my DVR counselor explained). I had already done a lot of research on ALS on my own and expressed an interest in finding a cure/successful treatment. So my DVR counselor approved medical research as my employment objective.


I was accepted at a local university. General education requirements had already been met with my previous bachelor's degree and by taking Precalculus that summer. So, after being out of school for 24 years, I returned for the Fall 2006 semester with a full-time premed course load. One of my classes was an independent study, researching significant medical findings which may have an affect on treatment for ALS. During both Summer & Fall semesters I earned 4.0 GPA's. I was accepted into Alpha Lambda Delta & Phi Eta Sigma - two national honor societies. However, during the Spring 2007 semester, I started dealing with mobility issues & it became certain that my goal of medical research had been denied for the DVR Training Grant by the supervisor. I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of being a premed student but can see that it had a negative effect on my healing process.


Now I am focusing on the ONLY hope for recovery available: faith in God's word and His miracle healing power. (I continue keeping my neurology appointments with Dr. Benjamin Brooks at the UW Clinic.) I constantly receive emails from ALS patients who happen to find my online testimony. I also continue ministering healing whenever there's an opportunity -- and continue seeing phenomenal results!
