Biography

Brian & Shawn Chrisagis were born with life-threatening allergies to the sun, grass, most food and clothing. The doctors said they wouldn’t live past the age of two, now walking, talking miracles in their thirties. The twins were in an incubator for the first two years of their lives, and when they were brought home the windows of their house had to be bricked in to protect them from the sun.
The twin's early years were marked by a series of “tests and errors” by doctors from the US, Italy, France, and Germany. It was discovered the only food they could eat was soybean, milk, sardines, rice cakes, and peanut butter. Their mother (Marguerite Chrisagis) and grandmother, (Carmie ‘Nana’ DeFilippo), had to make all their clothing out of the few fabrics their skin did not react to. If the sun ...hit them, they would nearly die, and would have to be rushed to the hospital. If they had to go outside, they would have to be covered up with hats and blankets. When the brothers were seven years old, their mother Marguerite, who suffered from a serious heart condition and was in a wheelchair and on oxygen as a result, went to a healing service at a Full Gospel Businessmen’s meeting. She went forward after the sermon to ask the preacher, Father Michael Scanlon,
to pray for her sons’ healing (she didn’t care about herself – she was only concerned over her sons healing),
but he insisted on praying for her. Father Scanlon told her that as a parent she had the authority in her home tostand in the gap and pray for her sons healing and deliverance. That is when she learned how to break the blood-line of sickness, death, and disease over her home and loved ones. After Father Scanlon prayed for Marguerite, she got out of her wheelchair and took off her oxygen, ran around and wasn’t winded. When she got home she had the whole family pray over her sick children. Marguerite ‘felt an evil Spirit push her onto the floor’ and the twins were set free instantly from all sickness. In an act of faith, Marguerite asked the boys to name anything they would like to eat. “Hot fudge sundae!” was the unanimous response. For the first time, the family went out to a nearby restaurant for the boys’ first ice cream. The entire week, the family went to the doctors, who “redid the tests and x-rays about five times” before he finally confirmed the twins were completely well and that their mother had “a new heart.” Their doctor became a born again believer that day marking the beginning of the twins’ powerful ministry.
