Chatter Together

Hi Glad Chatter Friends! I'm Chatter Kathy Scott! I'm filling in for Lisa tonight.

I have to ask, what is Chatter? I looked the word up and discovered that it is a constant noise, and boy have we been making a constant noise to our God! I'm here tonight to express the awe and wonder that we have seen in the body of Christ, as we petition to our Lord on behalf of Lisa and her family.

As Lisa, or her family even utters a need, it hasn't failed that someone is calling at that very moment to fulfill the need. Just a simple example, Lisa was saying to her mom that she really needed to change the sheets on her bed. Someone arrived at her home and offered to help clean, wash the clothes, and change the sheets on her bed.

A huge concern was the need to find the right doctors. As they searched for the perfect physicians to treat Lisa, four friends recommended the same doctors. Please continue to pray for these physicians, the nurses, and medical financial needs to be met.

There is a married couple that owns a house two blocks from MD Anderson. They were going to sell the house a few months ago, but felt like God told them not too. They felt like God told them that someone was going to need to stay in the house during their cancer treatment very soon. They have offered their home to Lisa and her family, believing that she is the very one that God was talking about.

These are only a few of the examples of God answering prayer. I will continue to share the ways that God is meeting Lisa's needs, but would like to share with you a few other thoughts, too.

JUST DO IT! If you feel like helping, JUST DO IT! Sign up on Lisa's Prayer Wall to ensure that she is receiving 24/7 prayer. You may also sign up on the Care Calendar to provide meals and childcare. The links are on this blog to the left hand side of the screen. Caring Bridge has been set up also, so that you may receive email notifications and updates.

It's important that you know that people are texting, emailing, and doing things for the family; and, they are embracing every bit of encouragement and help! If you feel like the Lord is giving you a word, then send it! If you feel like God is telling you that there is a need, there probably is one! We are asking that you follow God's direction.

Through this experience, it has come to light just how many people are suffering from cancer. Lisa wants to share with you that, "Cancer is bad, but God is good." She has received hundreds of emails from other cancer fighters and is very encouraged by the testimonies. Thank you for sharing, and continuing to encourage her, and her family.

Thank you for being a Glad Chatter, and sending constant praise and petition to our Lord, Jesus. Ephesians 6:18 says, "Pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints." Keep praying dear Glad Chatters!

Lisa,
You may not remember me but my daughter Brittany was in your daughter Alyssa's dance class for several years.

I was dx with breast cancer in 8/08. I underwent a lumpectomy, mastectomy, chemo, radiation. Now 1 1/2 years later, cancer free I am scheduled to have reconstruction surgery and the other breast removed next week at MDA.

Know that I am praying for you fervently! You CAN beat this!!!! With much love and support from family, friends, wisdom from the best doctors in the world and of course our gracious Heavenly Father.

In Christ we need not fear!
