A Georgia pastor is sharing his testimony of how faith in God helped him survive the long bout of the coronavirus and healed him completely.
Pastor Robert Burt of Danielsville Baptist Church, says he is thankful to be alive after fighting the deadly virus for several weeks.
His wife, Joy, says things looked bleak at times. “He was so close to death, just unbelievably close to death,” she said. “But I refused to believe that because I know my God is the ultimate healer and that he was going to heal Robert.”
The pastor doesn’t have health insurance, and so a GoFundMe was started to help with the medical bills and has exceeded the $2,000 goal. The family thanked everyone who prayed and donated. “God bless you all and thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”
On March 19th, Burt was rushed to the hospital and credits Jesus with his recovery. “I do know that without Jesus Christ healing and touching my body and giving me what I needed that I wouldn’t have survived,” Burt said.
He was confused and disoriented, and was several weeks in the hospital before doctors told him he was in such poor condition that he only had a slim 1% chance of surviving.
Today as Georgia is in the news because the governor is planning to reopen parts of the state, the pastor is among those who are taking the virus seriously. “We need to look at it as a very serious virus,” Burt said. “I pray every day right now that people who have this thing don’t lose their life.”
