In early December 2009, my dear friend, Melissa Espiritu, was given the diagnosis of a rare, aggressive form of stage 4 gastric cancer. She is a pastor's wife, mother of 6 beautiful girls, ages 19-6, a daughter, a sister, an aunt, and a dear, precious friend.
God is using this journey of pain & disease in Melissa's life to bring glory to himself. Doctors, with scientific knowledge, had given Melissa 3 months to make memories, spend time with her family & friends, and say goodbye. God, on the other hand, is revealing himself to people in amazing, incredible ways, and is giving Melissa strength, energy, and most of all....healing.
As He draws different people, from different denominations, each week together in Melissa's family room, surrounding her with song, prayer, praise, prophesy and HEALING, HE is becoming the BEACON OF HOPE that our city, our county, so DESPERATELY needs!
If we, as Christians, as those who have FAITH in Jesus Christ, believe that God is EXACTLY who he says he is, and believe HIS WORD is true, then WE BELIEVE that he is the God of MIRACLES, and that our dear, precious friend, Melissa, will be COMPLETELY healed, live a long, healthy life, and see ALL of her daughters grow into beautiful grown women of God, just like their momma!
