John Buchan's life is one mirrored by God's immense Love, Grace, Mercy, Healing and Answer to prayer. The word miracle has been used by medical professionals.  Seeing John and his wife today, it is hard to even imagine anything described in John's book Spared by Grace had happened.  Even more amazingly, John did not feel any pain. We have a living God indeed who is real and takes great care and interest in people.

John began by quoting Psalm 105:1 - Give thanks to the Lord and proclaim his greatness.
    Let the whole world know what he has done.

The music most appropriate to John's testimony is: Matt Redman - Your Grace Finds Me

Our great thanks to John and his wife Frances for their hospitality and for recording this testimony for us. We hope it will be a blessing and encouragement to all who listen to this.

 

Jennie Milne recorded this testimony today 19 October 2019 at AOG Central in Fraserburgh. It was such a powerful and engaging testimony which included abuse, healing, love, empathy for others that we had to podcast this sooner.
