rec. blood transfusion in 1976 during a hysterectomy, had 5 back surgeries due to car accident and knee surgeries, which left me fighting every day. I't left me in a wheelchair but now I can walk with a walker.
I believe in the Lord he will guide me through all this as I never stand alone. All things are possible with the Lord's guidance that one day there will be a cure...So when this road that were all traveling down seems to difficult I just PRAY and then leave the "Rest to God!"

Pam, What joy you must be experiencing in carrying out the ministry that God has entrusted to you. No struggle, suffering, nor tear that He has allowed has been wasted for now you are able to be His conduit. That makes all the difference when you know that He has a purpose in everything. He has perfectly prepared you for this work. ou are able bless and encourage others in their times of pain and discouragement, the times they ask" WHY ME.. my life is ruined by this disease". So exciting the doors God is opening to you, the support of your church. I so want to be used by God also through this time. Can't tell you how very thankful to God that I am for bringing you into my life. Would like to know about your ministy and how God uses you. You ARE A BLESSING!!!
