Miracle at MDA

Hi! This is Kathy Scott, filling in for Lisa. Well, a major miracle at MDA today! Lisa is scheduled to have surgery at 10:45 in the morning. The surgery will last 3.5 hours. Lymphoscintigraphy will take place before the segmental mastectomy. Several employees of MDA said that they have NEVER seen anyone scheduled and worked into the system as fast as Lisa. The words exactly were, "This is a miracle, Lisa!"

We're continuing to pray for other miracles of healing to take place tomorrow. Also, Scott and White still has not agreed to pay. Andrew and Lisa have been approved by MDA to make payments.

We're encouraged by God's word. Psalm 77:14, "You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples." We're so thankful that we serve a God that hears our prayers.

Lisa told me when she left for MDA on Tuesday, "I have no reason to believe that I'll have this surgery, but I just know that I'm going to have it on Friday. I just know it!" I believe that the Lord prepared her heart for the plan that he had before her. The children were settled for the week. A place to stay at MDA was waiting for Lisa and her husband. Countless people were praying, and God heard our prayers.

I'll update tomorrow as I hear how Lisa is doing. Her mom and Andrew will be in contact, and I'll update Glad Chatter. Tonight, it's chatter of thankful relief!

(((Hugs))) Kathy

Praise God...Father let all things go well. Let your healing hand of mercy touch and restore Lisa to full Health. In Jesus name amen. Thank you God for never leaving us or forsaking us. You are so amazing. Love you Lisa...prayers will continue.

Ok prayer people... to be perfectly blunt, here is the bottom line, now that the surgery is on... we need to be in constant Prayer for Lisa @10:45am for 3 1/2 hrs.!! That's the step for today!!
May the doctors hands be guided by God himself. And that by the end of this ordeal Lisa's body will be free of cancer!!! Praise God!! And we Thank Him for what He is doing!!

Then our next step is this: First and foremost, we need to lay all this finacial thing at the feet of Jesus. He fed the 5000 from 5 barley loaves and 2 fish. (John 6) So if He can do that, what is a little 10%(what the insurance won't pay) to our Lord and Savior?

So let's start praying for some 10%fundraising!! We can start by giving thanks for what He is about to do. He is going to raise the 10%Lisa and Andrew need!!! Lisa needs 10%!! We are praying for 10!!! That's all Lisa needs to raise. We could raise that if each of us petitioned our churches in a church service. We could even have a 10 barbque. We could even get 10 from some of the businesses around here to help. Each of us need to be praying for those people that can step up and help get Lisa her 10%. I am ready and willing, but we are the body of Christ and each one of us plays a certain part in Lisa's life. So, if there are people you know who can help, or you are a person who happens to know a lot of people (maybe 10), please step up and pray about it. Then, if you feel the tug of the Holy Spirit, let's do this!! We can get the 10!!! Let's pray Lisa gets the 10% miracle!!!
***(Who knows maybe with the last ditch effort in the morning with
Scott and White our 10% miracle will be a blessing from God! "For He knows the plans He has for us!!")
Joyfully His,
Joy Riddle

Lisa...I wanted you to know that I am up with you this morning...petitioning the Lord before the dawn. I know that you are finding peace and hope in our mighty God who saves. I will be praying for you diligently through the surgery and recovery. Jesus is there beside you.
In Him,

I came here after reading about Lisa on my blogging friends' Lelia & Faye's blogs.
I will definitely be praying for Lisa all morning.
God is able to do more than we could ever ask or think. NOTHING is too hard for Him.
I'm so honored to be able to pray for our sweet sister-in-Christ.
Love from OK,

Good news and thank you for the updates, Kathy.

I agree that we need to continue to be in prayer about not only the surgery but for the insurance company issue. But no matter what happens with the insurance, God is Jehovah Nissi, the One who provides! He has already met the needs and we get to see how He does it in the days ahead.

Debbie said...

Oh Praise God...Will keep in prayer for her throughout this day, and for the financial issues. After witnessing this miracle I am excited to see what the Lord will do....
