Dear Friends and Family-

We want to thank all of you who have donated to our ministry and supported us with your prayers this last year.  We love you all so much and your encouragement is so appreciated. 

As most of you know David was diagnosed in June with plural mesothelioma (asbestos cancer).  He was given 9-12 mo. to live.  This cancer comes from breathing in asbestos fibers 20-30 years ago.  The doctors could not give us any options except chemotherapy which would maybe give him three more months.  That was not an option to us.  We believe our God is a big God and can and will heal him

We are trying alternative therapy which is most of the time not covered by insurance so it is out of pocket for us.   We currently spend about $600.00 a month for his organic food and supplements.  David is in a tremendous amount of pain, has lost 70 pounds and is homebound. David is a real trooper and is not considering giving up this fight and neither am I.

 We are in the process of lining up a trip to a specialized hospital.  We are hoping will help alleviate his pain, slow down or kill the tumor growth  and get him a couple more years. 

We are in need of travel expenses and the cost for the medical treatment.  We will be leaving on the 10th of December and returning on the 21st.  We will then stay home for four to six weeks and then return for another twelve days.  There is also medicine that we will need while he is on homecare.   The total cost will be approximately $30,000.00. 

Would you consider giving a tax deductible donation:
