A MAN RECEIVES HIS DELIVERANCE AFTER SURGICALLY ATTEMPTING TO BECOME A WOMAN
Mr Mario Aníbal Giménez Ruiz born a male attended the crusade with Prophet T.B. Joshua in Paraguay as a ‘female’. At the age of 12 years, Ruiz felt the internal desire to be a woman. As a result, at the age of 14 years, Ruiz went for surgery and implanted breasts and began living life as a woman. He wore female clothes, applied female make-up including lipsticks, and went to the extent of dating men and eventually got married to a man, because he only had affection for men. He continued to behave like a female and at the age of 19 years he began taking female hormones in order to complete the process of becoming a woman. He spent so much money trying to become a woman, he says he now feels like the amount of money spent was wasted because that money could have been used to help the poor and needy. Living life as a woman, Ruiz was accomplished in life, he had financial means and a well-paying job; yet he was not satisfied.
A few years later, his mother died and he fell into depression. After the death of his mother his life hit rock bottom and it was at this time that he was advised by some family friends to attend the crusade with Prophet T.B. Joshua in Paraguay to find solace and comfort. He says as soon as he stepped foot into the stadium in Paraguay, he felt peace. Despite losing his mother, he “felt familial connection” with those at the crusade that day in Paraguay.
During the prayer line section of the crusade in Paraguay, Prophet T.B. Joshua moved forward to pray for him. At first, he says he did not want to be prayed for. Looking back he says, he knows it was the evil spirit that was in him trying to resist his deliverance. When Prophet T.B. Joshua eventually prayed for him, he says he felt the power of God and he knew that he had received his deliverance. After his deliverance, when he got to his house he felt uncomfortable with his long hair, breasts and female clothing which he had. Immediately, he cut his hair and requested financial assistance from the Emmanuel TV to surgically remove the breast implants. Prophet T.B. Joshua and Emmanuel TV paid for his surgery to remove the breast implants and also purchased an entire wardrobe of male clothes for him. He says the total amount of financial assistance rendered to him by Prophet T.B. Joshua and Emmanuel TV totaled over US$3,000. Now delivered, Ruiz says he is 30 years old and is happy to be the man that God has created him to be and would like to one day have a child and a family of his own. In conclusion to his testimony, Ruiz advised everyone not to wait if they feel they need deliverance because there is a solution in Jesus Christ for all manner of challenges. He also advised those facing similar challenges he once faced to learn from his life story.
