Breast Cancer! Oh No!


One day I came in from school at age 10 and there were two preachers 
sitting by my Dad. We'd never gone to church much, so it kind of 
shocked me when I was introduced to two preachers. They had asked 
my Dad if he wanted to accept Jesus as his Saviour. After they 
explained the plan of salvation to him, he decided that he would 
believe, repent and accept Jesus as his only Saviour. They then 
explained some scriptures to me and I also accepted Jesus as my 
Saviour! Later that night, my mother came to Jesus and repented 
of her sins. We were all three saved on the same day!

I got married when I was 19 and we went to church spasmodically. 
We had two sons in 2 1/2 years and tried to go to Church regularly 
after that. My husband was saved and baptized when he was 20.

When we had been married about five years, we went to a home prayer 
meeting and received the baptism of the Holy Spirit. The Bible 
became much clearer to us and we felt God's love and compassion in 
us much stronger. We praise God for that experience!

When I was 32, we had another son. He was our added blessing! 

In 1984 I was diagnosed with breast cancer in stage 3. I was prayed 
for by the elders of our church and also by many friends in different 
denominations. I praise God for each prayer that was prayed for my 
healing! I had a lumpectomy in January, 1985 and took chemo and 
radiation. It was an ordeal, but the Lord kept His healing hand and 
His strength and grace upon me. I only got sick once while I was 
taking chemo and that lasted for about 2 hours. I really praise the 
Lord for keeping His hand upon me! I have been healed for 16 years 
and I praise God for His healing! He's been good to me.

The Lord has kept my sons, although they haven't been perfect Christians. 
Who has? But I'm thankful for them and my Christian husband.

I pray that anyone who reads this will accept Jesus as their Saviour by 
saying, "Jesus, I repent of my sins, I'm sorry for my sins, I know that 
the only way to get to Heaven is to accept YOU as my only Saviour. 
You paid the price by dying on the cross for me. I thank You, Jesus, 
for coming into my heart and life right now. I thank You for saving me 
and writing my name in the Book of life. Thank You, Jesus, for becoming 
my Saviour right now in Jesus' Name. Amen."

God Bless You
