A Ray of Light in an Often Dark World

Post by jruegg » Wed Dec 05, 2018 11:28 am

In case you need a spiritual pick-me-up:

A 5 year old boy (grandson of a dear friend) was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma earlier this year (2018). Many people from across the country have worn the knees out of several pairs of pants in earnest prayer for this sweet little boy. On Monday, December 3, 2018, his doctors declared him cancer free.

Thank you, Jesus!
