The community of believers here astounds me. My friends, I cried reading the letters and email prayers that arrived for Gina.
Here are only a few sentences pulled from some of your prayers:
Dear Gina, Precious child of God, I am praying for you today. May God grant you peace beyond understanding as you walk this journey of faith..... ~Tina
Dear Gina, You are loved by God....He knows you by name..... ~Melissa
Dear Gina, beloved of God, I am praying and believing for your miracle today and in the days to come with this prayer: "Father God, Giver of life, love, mercy, compassion, grace and peace, Author of our faith, and Healer of our spirit, mind, and body... ~Shari
Gina, ....JESUS IS LARGE AND IN CHARGE! BELIEVE & TRUST IN THE LORD. HAVE HOPE, FAITH, & BELIEVE…God has all ready done it! -AMEN. ~Julie
"...Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God's." 2 Chronicles 20:15~ Christine
I am at a loss for words to thank you... And that doesn't happen very often to me. Now let me share with you Gina's words:
Medical Update: Gina does have Melanoma in her right eye. However, after tests this is not the invasive cancer they were fearing. Hallelujah!!! However, it must be treated. Gina will go under treatment on June 29th where she will receive radiation delivered to the tumor by placing a radioactive plaque on her eye, directly over the tumor in a procedure called brachytherapy.
Pray for her again that day.
The day I told Gina we were praying for her and handed her a stack of printed letters, she looked at me and couldn't speak. She was completely overwhelmed and speechless. I don’t think anything like this has ever happened to her before. Her is a photo of her. She was so surprised and self-conscious with me photographing her that all she could do was smile. She said because if she didn’t, she would cry.
She is handling her prognosis one day at a time. Her life is complicated at home and this will be difficult for her to walk through. However, I know because we prayed for her, her life is about to change and she will KNOW Jesus.
My friends, I received nearly 100 letters and emails. Her is a photo from one day that came in the mail.
I passed along the emails and letters as they arrived. Every day for a week, I handed her your words of love, grace, hope. I handed her the living proof that Jesus can do great miracles. I handed her your love.
THANK YOU… From Gina, from me. But mostly... This is what Jesus impressed upon me...
Well done good and faithful servants. You changed the destiny for one young woman who I was desperate to reach. Thank you for being the people of God. ~Jesus
