How a Phone Call Ushered a Miraculous Healing of Lyme Disease after All Else Failed

Mark Ellis : Sep 13, 2017  God Reports

"People looked at me and they knew. All the red bumps were gone. I was standing upright. I wasn't bent over taking small deliberate steps." -Dominic Sputo

"I had a really depraved background," confesses Dominic Sputo, the founder of Mute No More. "I had never heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ and I had never read the Bible."

On his last day of college, he discovered he had a three-year-old daughter. He knew the child was his, but decided to flee from his fatherly responsibilities.

He landed a decent white-collar job after graduation. At the same time, however, he nurtured a drug and alcohol problem that got more severe with time.

"After five years of running away from her my life was a train wreck," he admits. At 28-years-old, he had multiple DUIs and the installment payments on his credit card were more than his monthly paycheck.

In evading his obligations as a dad, he created more problems for himself. "Everything around me was destruction. I finally woke up one day and realized that I was just a loser and I couldn't get out of it."

By God's great mercy, He strategically placed a strong Christian in Dominic's workplace. "He shared the Gospel with me three times and he took me out to lunch. I wondered why this guy wanted to be my friend. He was so nice to me."

While Dominic had been hostile to Christianity in college, this time he began to listen. "I started studying the Bible and I was deeply convicted," he says.

God's powerful offer in the Scripture of grace and compassion overwhelmed him. The Holy Spirit steadily softened his heart.

In a fast food restaurant, he told his co-worker he was ready to pray to receive Jesus as his Savior and Lord. Dominic was born again.

A businessman in the community discipled him. After a year, God turned Dominic's heart toward his daughter and he moved from Atlanta to Tampa to be close to her.

"I was a student of the Word and I was very overwhelmed that God would love someone like me and I had no doubt that He was compassionate. I was overwhelmed that in the Parable of the Good Samaritan, Jesus says 'Go and do the same.'

In response, Dominic decided to make a vow.

Sooner than expected, God opened a window of financial blessing from Heaven. "Six months later the Lord led me and John Kang to start a software company that inside of 18 months went public on NASDAQ at the height of the tech boom," he recounts.

He walked away with a tidy fortune, but turned his back on the vow. "I gave 10 percent to my church and another 10 percent to charity, not out of compassion, just placating my conscience."

"Life became all about me. I was going to church; I was a Sunday school teacher. I was in church Sunday morning, afternoon and night and Wednesday night, but inwardly, I was serving another..."
