A Faith Story Follow Up

Image

About four months ago we wrote a Faith Story, that was about my wife Anne, she had just been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and second cancer of the liver. Both our faiths to say the least were shaken. But we serve an awesome God, and we did not let it get on top of us, the ministry carried on regardless of the diagnosis.

Lots of prayer by our family members and friends and many churches we know, my wife went through the treatment with chemo. The chemo was to add time to her life, was the way the doctors put it. After four chemo treatments, for which my wife couldn’t have more regularly because of her white cell blood count, she was sent for scans to see how she was progressing.

Holding on to our Faith in Our Awesome God, but still fearful a little, from which I wrote Faith and Doubt. Faith and doubt were real to us, but the encouraging sign we had during the treatments, could only be put down to the Awesomeness of Our God, Our Lord and Our Friend.

When we were at the doctors several months ago we could see the mass of cancer on the pancreas, and the spots on the liver. Today the Specialist Doctor who has being overseeing the treatment, told us the mass in the pancreas had disappeared, and the cancer in the liver was shrinking dramatically. All praise to Our Awesome God.

We serve an awesome and Loving God, for which He gets all the Glory for this testimony. We would like to thank all the people who have stood with us in faith, and would only be too happy to hear of things anyone else might need prayer for.  We will stand with you in prayer too.

The journey of healing for Anne is not over yet, so we appreciate any ongoing prayers, but to see the remarkable progress she has made since Anne was first diagnosed, again it is all thanks to Our Awesome and Loving God,

Be Blessed. Be encouraged, for He truly is an Awesome and Loving God to serve.

God Bless.

PS. Here is A Faith Story we wrote at the time of the diagnoses.

This is a one on one type of story, which is real at this moment in time. As you all would know My Lord My Friend.com was established to help bring the excitement of living by faith, by a deeper understanding of Our Lord and Our Friend. The best way to do this is to delve into His word for the riches He has for all our lives. We are here to stand with you for any prayer needs you may have, and be available to give our best at  answering any questions about faith you may have as well.

Well I am Old Fellow John {OFJ} or John and my partner in this ministry is the Kid {no he just younger than me} Michael.  We have always said life is a journey and Our Lord and Our Friend is always with us on our journey. What we come across along the Journey, can be challenging, like Psalm 23 says:

Verse 4 “even when I {We} go through the darkest valley, I {We} fear no danger, for You are with me”.

Well the ministry is going through it at the moment, my wife Anne of 38 years, has been diagnosed with a life threatening illness. That is the bad news. But Our Lord and Our Friend, is in control, and He revealed this in an unusual way.

We have many friends of the ministry, and my older son is care taker at a church near where we live. My son came and picked up my wife last Sunday to take her to church, because the more faithful people praying the better.

It so happens they had a visiting Pastor as speaker. At the end of his Preaching, he said while he was praying the night before, what to preach about, He was told to tell a lady with a yellow shirt/top, that God loved her and she is going to get a breakthrough today. He also said that he thought he would have trouble saying that, so he asked for confirmation. Well he received an email from a friend to confirm he was to do this and had the time and date on his phone as proof of the confirmation he asked for.

My wife was the only lady in church wearing a yellow shirt/top. this was not the top she was going to wear, but couldn’t find the one she wanted to wear.  We have since been to several doctors and Finally  a surgeon, the word in the natural is not good.

But Our Lord and Our Friend went to extraordinary lengths to assure my wife, he is in control. We now await the good report in the natural.

Standing on the promises of God, He knows all about us, he knows what we are going through. The word is THROUGH, so we are standing on the Promises of God.

We know we will have the victory in this, even though victory in the natural is not evident yet.

We believe this may help others out there, to stand on the Promises of Our Lord and Our Friend.

God Bless.
