My prayer is that in sharing my weekly journey through stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer, believing God's word that Jesus is healing me and I shall be delivered even as He promised, will encourage those who may be called to walk the same journey of faith, to know what another has experienced, and by seeing the testimony and deliverance of God, know and believe that God loves us all, as you speak aloud and hear the word of the Lord spoken over you to increase your faith.  Sharing both physical trials and the Lord's faithfulness is the pattern of the Psalms, and of the New Testament, showing that God is faithful!

Jesus Heals Cancer
JUNE 27 WEEK 12 TRUST IN THE LORD
Praise God for His goodness and mercy that are new every morning! Praise the Lord Jesus that His word is true that I shall be healed, and I shall live and declare the works of the Lord that He is working in me even now!

It has been a rough couple of weeks with struggling to breathe, excessive violent coughing, feeling a new very large lump on the liver side, and horrible digestive upset with intestinal pain, when I know it was the Lord who whispered to me that I had an infection. Monday night, Dennis confirmed that it was time to do a 10 day round of Amoxycillin. But we praise God that Jesus is a wonderful good plan!! After 3 days I am so much better, also better after feeling silly realizing that a tumor cannot possibly grow so large in one month, and looking on the anatomy chart, it was just a swollen gallbladder, so of course God's Holy Spirit is right and when we don't know the uncharted way before Him, we can safely trust in Him.

PROVERBS 3:5-6 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not to your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths."

My next appointment is for the blood test on July 18 for the Dr. appointment on July 22. I look forward to my Oncologist to say again that the Prayer and Protocel program is working, and the Cancer Antigen counts confirm that just as God's word says: the mountain of Cancer is being removed from my body and cast into the sea!" Amen!!!

I do not know how long this journey will be through the valley of the shadow, but I treasure the experience of knowing that God is so near, of knowing the depth of His love for me, and I hope to be more disciplined when I come out the other side, fully prepared to witness of the marvelous works of God!

WEEK 10 JUNE 11 INSPIRING LIGHT OR CLANGING CYMBAL?
MATTHEW 15:16 "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."

1 Corinthians 13:1-2 "Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. 2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing."

When I first began to proclaim my faith that I was not going to die but live and declare the works of the Lord, I spoke aloud for everyone to hear, and yes inspired some, but I was not considering those around me who either were not inspired and may have felt condemned that God did not love them, or just thought I was crazy, Jesus was always sensitive and gentle and kind. We should never hold back from praising the Lord publicly, but to be affective in ministry to others, we must use wisdom to understand what is meant to be spoken in our prayer closet, and what is meant to be shared without slapping the wounded in the face with our Bible when their hearts are not ready to receive. Remember that Jesus preached the Gospel boldly to those who came to him to hear, but he went to others privately choosing his words wisely to penetrate their hearts and draw them to the truth of the Gospel.

We are not to waltz into a room full of people, some dying of cancer and some who will make jokes about "crazy Christians", clanging our joyful Gospel gong with no regard for anyone but ourselves, but understand what is appropriate so we will not bring shame upon the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and be wise and sensitive like Jesus, so our words will bring glory to his name.

MATTHEW 10:16 "Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves."

Bring life with your words, as you shine your light.

This week I dreaded going to my doctor appointment because he was not happy with me not doing the chemo, even though he said it would not extend my life because the Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer with which I was diagnosed was incurable and the most I could hope for was a lessening of pain. I told him that if I could have lessoning of pain without the nausea and vomiting, that seemed like a better option to me!

I found that my Oncologist believed that I would be near death at my appointment this month. I have good days and bad days. I prayed for a good day and the Lord Jesus gave me a good day where I was breathing freely for my appointment! The Dr asked me to tell him my symptoms of the past month, so I told him of having taken a turn for the worse about 3 weeks ago (thinking cancer was growing faster than Protocel could kill it) with horrible pain in my abdomen, liver area and intestines, lymph nodes swollen, while struggling to breath with fever going up. I was going to call my internal specialist who installed the pancreatic stent for a follow up apt. as my Oncologist suggested, but after prayer and sleep, I woke up with no temperature, and felt led to wait. The lymph node swelling began to go down and the pain turned into just discomfort. I continued to pray knowing that Satan is a liar, and I remembered how the pancreas is not producing digestive enzymes right now, so increased the dosage and stopped eating salads and raw vegetables that are hard to digest, the digestive pain went away, and I was able to breathe again. I told my Oncologist that I cough so much that I am exhausted and feel worn out and weak, but because I have spells of no coughing and free breathing (like the morning of the appointment), it does not seem that the coughing is due to cancer in the lungs growing, but is the result of cancer cells lysing (dying and becoming liquid) that is coughed out of my body with large amounts of phlegm. From 197 over 89, my blood pressure had come down to 134 over 67, and temperature was normal.

Oncologist said he was very glad that I was getting better! He reminded me that insurance does not pay for blood testing when a patient is not on chemotherapy because they know already that the results will show the cancer has grown, but since he sees that I am definitely healthier than I was the month before, he wants to take a blood test to see what is going on! He congratulated me saying that it looks like the Protocel is working, and wants me to take a blood test showing Cancer Antigens before my next appointment on July 22nd. When I went to the front desk, the waiting room was empty and both receptionists gave big smiles and said, "Congratulations!" and of course I praised the Lord.

I do not always have faith to move mountains, but my faith is in my God who does when I speak his word and trust in him with all my heart! Praise the name of Jesus!

WEEK 9 SATAN IS A LIAR - RESIST AND HE MUST FLEE!
A precious truth that I learned this week is that everything that happens to us is not the truth because the devil is a liar! Satan attacks God servants with a vengeance, and we must fight the good fight of faith and hold up the standard of God's word to resist the devils lies, and he must flee!

John 8:44 "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it."

James 4:7 "Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you."

Jesus is my healer, but just as Job was called to walk through terrible illness and loss, but came out praising God, I will come through this terrible illness of cancer and come out delivered because JESUS IS VICTOR! AMEN!

I have mentioned before that the medicine Protocel makes me very sleepy, and God has given me rest as He heals me, and I am very thankful. This past week brought heavy coughing producing large amounts of phlegm that seemed not to stop, and along with the digestive problems from the Pancreas, I felt weak with when Satan sends thoughts that attack at my weakest point. When you are feeling very ill and weak, it is so important to have an established pattern of praying God's word! You may not feel like it, and you may not feel like you have any power at all in your words so weakly spoken, but remember, the power is not of yourself, but the power is of God and His word spoken! I learned in my weakest moments that God's word is sharper than any two edged sword to cut away this disease from my healthy body, and powerful to remove it and flush it out to the sea!

With every cough I praise God for spitting that cancer out of my healthy lungs for it is being removed! When I had a fever with swollen lymph nodes I praised God that by His stripes I was healed and spoke peace and healing to my hurting body, and trusted the Lord that His word is true. Satan is indeed a liar, because the fever went away so that I did not need to start antibiotics. I am taking Cough and Chest medicine to help clear my lungs during this process of healing, and Advil to decrease inflammation, and I am breathing more normally, praise the Lord Jesus! I also increased the dosage of Digestive Enzymes with Probiotic to 4 capsules before easy to digest meals that has much relieved the digestive and gas pain until this trial has passed. God has been faithful to show me what to do along this journey, and at the 2 month mark, I am having no pain from the cancer and I am just fine! Praise God from whom all blessings flow; His mercies are new every morning!

I have an appointment with my Oncologist on Monday, still not having the expected symptoms of extreme pain and nausea. I pray that God will open his eyes to see what the Lord is doing in healing me, and praise the living God of Heaven!
May our lives be a testimony of the goodness of God, Amen!

Week 8 AFFLICTION IS BUT FOR A MOMENT
2 Corinthians 4:17-18 "For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; 18 while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal."

As we go through the testings of life, we must remember that God is working in us a far greater and eternal weight of glory! All things that we go through our father uses for our good, to work his good pleasure in our hearts, to transform us into his image, the image of his son, our Lord Jesus. Our job is to put our faith only in him, and trust him, as we pray the prayer of faith and believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him. He is faithful to deliver!
This week started out with labored breathing, heavy coughing, digestive pain, and a new sharp pain, like appendicitis in my right side. I have no appendix so the only thing it could be was an inflamed gall bladder. The CT scan showed no gall stones, and because of stage 4, my doctors will only say to take more pain meds, which I do not take. In prayer I felt the answer was to take Advil to reduce inflammation and cough medicine to reduce coughing and rest. As the pain increased, my head began to imagine cancer was spreading to my liver, but immediately I took that thought captive to the obedience of Christ, speaking the scriptures over my body, of Jesus' promise to remove all sickness and disease from our midst and that I shall be healed! I think I slept most of the week, but again, the pain is gone, praise the Lord Jesus!

God has been faithful to me and again this Sabbath, I was able to be up for our church, playing worship and though it is difficult to speak and breath at the same time, the Lord gives me his grace to sing with very little coughing. My voice is not yet strong, but I look forward to the day when we can complete the recording of the worship sets for those who need them for their own church in their home.
God bless you all, and keep the faith through trying times and do not ever doubt, for our Lord Jesus is faithful!

Week 7 - May 25, 2019 JESUS GIVES US REST
It has been very difficult for me to give up staying up through the night to study God's word as I have for many years, to research for the Bible lessons, and just a very special time to meet with the Lord. However, the consequences have been that I functioned on very little sleep, and that is not healthy for our bodies which are the temple of the Holy Spirit. I felt a deep sadness and guilt that I was not able to post new lessons each week, while at the same time I knew that my body, my Pancreas, my Lymph system, and my lungs needed to rest in order to cooperate with the Lord in healing me! When I am up too long, walk too far (like to the front door), or talk, I have been unable to stop coughing until completely laying down, taking a day or two to recover, but praise the name of Jesus I recover! The Lord is sustaining me and carrying me through this difficult time. I cannot do what I had done for so many years, but also see that Jesus is teaching me something I need to learn, as sent to me by my dear daughter, Darla:
Psalm 127:2 "It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep."
Oooooh so it is OK to sleep! What a comfort this verse is to me in this time when my body needs to rest...he giveth his beloved sleep. That makes me cry thinking of the love of God for me, Jesus gives me rest, and he is Lord of this ministry that he gave to me many years ago, so I will rest.
I am amazed that I still have no pain, though I am physically exhausted from the Protocel that lowers the body's (in simple terms) metabolism, by 15-20% that is not harmful to healthy cells, but cannot be tolerated by the cancerous cells, causing them to lyse, and be gradually eliminated from the body. God knew that and he gave this formula to 2 chemists who simply asked him. I praise my God for his word that is sharper than any two-edged sword, for his breath that gives me life to speak his word in which he lives, for prayer and Protocel, and most of all that Jesus loves me and calls me his own.
What a mighty God we serve!

Week 6 - May 17, 2019 WALKING THROUGH THE VALLEY
Praise the Lord Jesus for his faithfulness to walk us through difficult times that strengthen our faith and draw us closer to him. Lungs have been acting up more this week but with speaking and praying the word of God over myself continually, the horrible pain I was experiencing is still gone, and by the power of his blood, and by the power of his word, and by the power of his very breath giving me life, by his grace I shall be healed!
A scripture came to mind this morning from when David saw the giant Goliath of the enemy he faced, and he said, "...for who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?"
1 Samuel 17:26 Who does the devil think he is that he should dare to defy the servant of the living God? Where is the devil and the cancers that he has thrust upon me? Ephesians 1:19-23 "And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, 20 which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: 22 and hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, 23 which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all." Ephesians 2:6 "And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus."
Jesus defeated the devil on the cross and placed him and all his diseases under the feet of my Lord Jesus who lives in me, so this disease and every fowl dart the enemy throws at me is under my feet, for I am seated with Jesus in the Heavenlies! Praise his holy name!

Week 5 - May 10, 2019 THE LORD JESUS IS FAITHFUL
May 10, 2019 The Lord is good and faithful to hold us each in his loving hand. He knows the way that we take and when he has tested us through the fiery trial, we shall come forth as pure gold! I am feeling no pain, my lungs are better, I have more energy, I am feeling much better than I was last week, and becoming a bit stronger each day, though still needing 2-3 hours sleep to recover for each hour that I am up, so it is not easy to fit deadlines for lessons in. Saw my Oncologist today who acknowledges that he is happy that I feel better, and it is not that he is not a believer in God, but the diagnosis is still the same that without chemo, we are one month in from the general consensus that I have 2-6 months to live. But God has another plan that I shall not die but live to declare the wonderful works of the Lord! You know it does not matter what anyone thinks but God, and may we all live our lives as a testimony to his loving mercy and grace as long as we live, for he is a wonderful amazing God! I could not help whispering to the believing receptionist smiling back at me on the way out, "He thinks I am going to die but I'm not!" God is so good! I was able to get the Healing Scripture Prayer Card booklet done yaaay! We have 7 prayer cards now instead of 2, and when you are praying God's word through an illness all the day, that is a blessing! All our love and blessings of the Lord to you all, in Jesus name!

Week 4 - Posted May 1, 2019 I Shall Not Die but Live
Dear Faithful followers of our Lord and Savior, who regularly come to view and use this site, there is no new material posted this week and perhaps next week until my condition becomes more stable. After the stint was installed and biopsies to confirm the diagnosis, I was given strong narcotic pain medications for nausea, vomiting and the pain of the cancer. With the most aggressive Chemo I was given 6 to 9 months to live, without, he says about half that time. Chemo is actually not scheduled for about 2-3 weeks from today, funny there is no hurry isn't it! I was in so much pain that I was passing out and Dennis followed me everywhere to be sure to catch me!
But GOD spoke to a Nobel Prize winning Chemist in the 1930's who in answer to his fervent prayers in High School, gave him vision of a formula to cure cancer. God gave the same vision to a man in prayer in the 1990's.
I began taking that formula and my pain is gone! My Dr. has said my condition is incurable, that chemo will shrink the tumors, but this cancer is so aggressive that it grows back worse than before, that continued chemo treatments will help reduce the pain, but will not add any time to my life. I am choosing to forego chemo for comfort care and pray!!! Our next Bible series will explore both non-Biblical views of healing, compared to the Gospel and what we have discovered of God's amazing provision for our every need, while also studying God's plans for us today, that are the same as they were for our Bible heroes of faith, and how to go through the valley of the shadow of death and come out in God's glory! We also need more scriptures and Prayer Cards for this journey, right? So I am working on those. The Lord Jesus bless you all, we love you, and praise the name of Jesus for he is worthy to be praised!

Week 1 - April 9, 2019 Suddenly Given 6 Months to Live
I had been coughing for many months, even years, but went to urgent care with shortness of breath, sensing that something was wrong. My Pulmonary specialist/Nutritionist said the coughing was asthma, and had simply prescribed a bronchial inhaler, but having had severe asthma as a child into early adulthood, I knew this was not asthma. The urgent care doctor said what he saw on my chest X-ray was alarming and sent me immediately to the hospital emergency where he called ahead.
I was sent for CT scans of the lungs, followed by CT scan of the abdomen, and that night, an Oncologist came in to tell me the preliminary bad news. His assessment of the CT scan reports and blood tests, after consulting with the pulmonologist, from having seen this conditions 100's of times, is that I had Pancreatic Cancer that had metastasized to the lungs and lymph nodes. When my family asked how long, he said usually 6 months, maybe 9 months with treatment. I told him that my God is bigger than cancer, Jesus is my healer, that like the 3 men thrown into the firey furnace, I believe my God will deliver me, but even if he doesn't I will praise him because he is worthy to be praised, that I believe I will be healed and I will be just fine. The Oncologist took my hand and said, "I think you will be just fine too." Jesus is victor, praise his name!
April 10, I am home from the hospital today. God has blessed me to not die, but to be a living witness of his wonderful works! My hospitalization this April 9/10 was for CT scans to evaluate my illness, ultimately diagnosed as Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer that has metastasized to my Lungs and Lymphatic system.
My first thought was a baptism of joy from the Lord with a thankful heart, excited to tell the doctors and specialists around me of what my God can do and I will be just fine. How amazing to have this new opportunity to reach so many with the Good News of Jesus!
When I looked in the mirror this morning and saw the yellow orange eyes and skin from the primary mass blocking the bile duct to the liver, I giggled and said, "OK devil, game is on!" Then immediately, I took up the two scripture prayer cards below and began to speak God's word and pray God's word, 6-8 times each day. God is so good and has been so faithful to me, I pray that I may live my life to bring glory to his name!
