Former Marine Supernaturally Healed of PTSD Now Serves Other Wounded Warriors

by | Mar 4, 2021 | Church & Ministry

“Afghanistan, 2009, Operation Kanjari—that was quite the rough deployment,” Jared Laskey says in describing one part of his service as a Marine field radio operator. “But Jesus saw us through, and Jesus was with me the whole time.

“Whenever we were in combat with the enemy, I was praying and doing my job simultaneously,” Laskey tells Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of Greenelines on the Charisma Podcast Network. “The Holy Spirit was with me the entire time, and He saw me through.”

And Laskey needed the Spirit’s power. “In my platoon of 26, I think 16 had been blown up in an IED” [improvised explosive device, or roadside bomb].

But instead of turning Laskey away from God, those horrific experiences and the PTSD that resulted moved him toward his heavenly Father. “It was through that, honestly, that I ran toward God, and Holy Spirit healed my life supernaturally,” he says.

Some might say this is spiritual mumbo-jumbo or something no one can verify. But Laskey has experienced the Spirit’s freedom and power. Not only has he written an e-course called Healing Warriors to share his testimony of healing from post-traumatic stress disorder, but he put that healing to a concrete test, returning to Afghanistan—the scene of his trauma—as an independent military contractor.

“I saw I had nothing but love for the people,” he says of his mission there. “I thought that I may have had something to deal with. I’d undergone the healing. I’d been supernaturally healed, progressively healed, during the process of time … but I thought I might have one more thing to face.”

Instead, Laskey says, the deep love he felt revealed something incredible: “I’m healed and whole. I just want to see people here come to Jesus.”
