St. Martin de Porres Comments

St. Martin de Porres was born at Lima, Peru, in 1579. His father was a Spanish gentleman and his mother a coloured freed-woman from Panama. At fifteen, he became a lay brother at the Dominican Friary at Lima and spent his whole life there-as a barber, farm laborer, almoner, and infirmarian among other things.

    Saint Martin de Porres did great things to me
    1. He saved me when I was 9 years, that is at the time I was seriously ill of Malarial which My Late Mother Mrs. Martha Moses thought I was going to die due to Malarial. Whereas I was alone in bed when my Mother was going to prepare food for me, I saw St Martin appear on me for about 1mins. and disappeared and just as he disappeared I started sweating then my mother entered our room and asked me Albert what happened and you are now sweating and I told her what I saw and she said "GOD I THANK YOU SAINT MARTIN HAS SAVE MY SON"
    2. Saint Martin appeared in my dream on 23 October, 2008 and show me prayer. The prayer talk about protection, success and prosperity by the help of Angles and Saints
    3. I am now opening health clinic bearing the name SAINT MARTIN CLINIC in Cape Coast, Ghana.
    4. In second week, January 2012, I saw Saint Martin around the Building where I am just about to open the Clinic. God you are great coming from poor family you have used Saint Martin in my life,

    Saint Martin de Porres: Hi, i got confirmed last may and my saint name was Martin. Help me out to find inner peace and be stronger against my boss's horrible words. He destroys my confidence when he talks down to me, i can no longer ignore him because i've tried my best to do so. My only option is to leave this job because i'm no longer happy with it, i can't even sleep because not only my boss but also his nurse and medical assistant are the same. I hope to bless them as well. Help me find another job so my suffering can end and i will be able to smile and be happy again. Saint Martin de Porres, i really need your help because i'm working with them tomorrow morning.............i'm runnin out of hope buy my faith in you will keep me together. Thank you very much.....................:-)

    Family needs intercession for my great-granddaughter who was born African/Mexican. Her dad is being deported back to africa even though he has completed all paperwork for his renewing visa back in February. It seems all doors shut down and now he will have to go back. He must leave by August 30th. 2012. I am Christian and have believed in San Martin de Porras since I was adopted at the age of 3. Blessings to this ministry. Grandma irene
