1936 Florencia left Ormoc, Leyte, to live with her aunt in Mindanao. She married a mechanic there, but her husband died leaving her with four children to rear. She supported the family on a small income gained by selling vegetables in the market.

One day in January of 1956 she noticed a foreigner (Mrs. Thompson) preaching on a street comer that she passed everyday on the way to work.

She heard that someone was praying for the sick there. For three months she had been suffering with severe pain in the lungs. Her mother also had been ill for quite some time.

Though she was a Roman Catholic, she did not hesitate to attend this Protestant meeting. Her uncle had earlier become a Baptist and she had attended his church. Sometime in March or April she went with her mother to the meeting. The first thing she heard was the congregation singing “There’s Revival in the Air.’’ She was impressed with this song and the way the people were singing. Her reaction to the Protestants was positive from the beginning.

At the end of the message those who wanted prayer for healing were invited to come forward. Sister Thompson first talked with these and led them to express their faith in Christ. Then she laid her hands on them and commanded the sickness to be cast out in Jesus' name.

“Instantly the pain was gone,” Mrs. Europa told me. “I could stand straight for the first time in months. Then I saw my mother and realized that she was healed also.” Both accepted the Lord that night, and eventually Mrs. Europa’s four children also became Christians. Her two sisters, their husbands and children — 19 in all — also accepted the Lord in time.
