We have just returned from a wonderful weekend with Calvary Baptist Temple in Rig, WV. These folks have always been such a blessing to us through the years. At the close of the evening service, Charles Snyder, the senior pastor asked all of the congregation to come forward and form a semi-circle around us as they prayed for Lance, our grandson. The pastor shared his prayer/dream that when we return to Mexico, Lance will come running to greet us. We still tear up with his tremendous compassion and vision for a boy he does not know.
Yesterday, as we traveled home, we were in a part of the state that has very limited reception, so we really did not know how the doctor’s appointment went with Lance. When we got closer to a larger city, we finally got reception and Cheyenne started to fill us in on the appointment. The doctor confirmed definitely that it is juvenile arthritis and that with good treatment, it should pass and that he has already gone through the worst part. He did much to encourage Lance so he would not become depressed. He also told them he was going to inject Lance’s knees and ankles with cortisone so he will overcome the sub-conscious thought that he could not walk (reality since about January). He immediately had Lance stand and take three steps without hesitation so his mind will see he can walk.
I wrote Cheyenne about the special prayer at Rig and her answer took a few seconds. She sent an emoji of a person crying and said, “Yes, we definitely believe in miracles.” She then relayed that at that moment Lance hollered and said, “Mom. I just went to the bathroom by myself and I walked all the way there and back without sitting down and without help!” Thank you, Lord.
