What Would You Do if You Were Told You Are Going To Die?

I think everyone wonders what they might do if they were told they're going to die.  Well, I got the chance to do just that 1 week ago.  This is not something that one can just type up because there is alot of emotions that go along with it; therefore, I made an "unprofessional" audio recording for my family (and then decided to share it with the rest of the world too). YOU CAN LISTEN TO MY STORY HERE.  

I also want to add one important point that is not in my audio that I heard someone mention in church last Sunday that is indeed my story.  Quoting from scripture:
“And I will also ease the burdens which are put upon your shoulders, that even you cannot feel them upon your backs, even while you are in bondage; and this will I do that ye may stand as witnesses for me hereafter, and that ye may know of a surety that I, the Lord God, do visit my people in their afflictions. 
“And now it came to pass... the Lord did strengthen them that they could bear up their burdens with ease, and they did submit cheerfully and with patience to all the will of the Lord” (Mosiah 24:14–15). 
People who know my "dire" diagnosis keep mentioning their amazement that I'm not only ok but quite happy and peaceful.  Well this scripture sums it up.  The Lord has lightened my burden of cancer that I am able to submit to it cheerfully so He can do His great work in me (and trust me there's alot of work that needs to be done!) and so I can stand more fully as a witness for him!  This is not power I have in and of myself (or I might be a tee-total wreck right now), but rather it is God's gift to me for which I am eternally grateful!

Now, back to my recording. If I had the time I'd divide my audio recording into segments but oh well! Sorry! The best I can do is offer a quick "table of contents" for you:

  1. I discuss my diagnosis and why I'm so happy, happy, happy despite the news.  I list a run-down of miracles that happened leading up to this...I'd like to think it's God making sure I know He has his eyes on me.
  2. The Gerson Therapy explained off the top of my head (so yes, I made a few minor and inconsequential errors) and why I'm choosing it over conventional medicine
  3. Finale: The big secret that even my doctor doesn't know that should have us all dancing in the streets!

It's truly an honor and privilege to be privy to such marvelous works that the Lord is unveiling before my very eyes daily, so quickly I can't document it all. It reminds me of AN UNBELIEVABLE STORY I just heard about a Dad who flew to Haiti a few short days after the massive earthquake to rescue a little girl they adopted.  He left not knowing before hand what he would do with only a backpack, granola bars and some jerky.  Yet God had a great work for him to accomplish.  He ended up saving the lives of countless orphans and also acquired a military escort to transport several dozen baby's back to the states.  It is truly a mission impossible story that will leave you on the edge of your seats! You can hear the entire Haiti rescue mission HERE.
