When I was 7 years old I was born again! Five years later, the Lord filled me with His Holy Spirit and called me out to serve in full time service in the ministry. My heart is missions and a longing to love people into God's Kingdom.
I love to teach God's Word, pray with people and write. 
Soon, we are hoping our Jesus opens amazing doors to walk into mission endeavors.

PRAY AS I AM EXPERIENCING A 'MIDNIGHT HOUR'

I wanted to let my readers know what is currently happening in our lives right at this moment. If you recall last October my husband Brad had a simple knee surgery that turned into a major fiasco. [blood clot, major swelling, heart-a-tack, weeks in the hospital and months of recovering]
This past week, Brad's energy level has dissipated. He was doing things I had never seen him to. He seem to not have any strength. Then on Friday he was loosing his breath. So, with his history our MD had him tested for blood clots of which they have not found any. We were sent home to rest. But, Saturday he continued to get worse. God has sent us so many wonderful people in our lives and Sat. was one; we have a dear friend Dave Stankus who is a paramedic, yet a man who loves his Lord. He observed Brad's symptoms and encouraged us strongly to get back to the hospital immediately. The ambulance came to take the Love of My Life to Effingham, IL. 
We are pastors at a very special church, a Body that amazes us with their amazing walk with Jesus and love for us as Pastors. Yet, they are unable to pay us a wage; but do supply a lovely parsonage. We are humbled to be their pastors. They have had to take care of themselves as I am trying to focus on my husband and children. 
The M.D. on call this weekend has run what tests she is able to and has told us that it seems to be pointing to cardiac. His condition is not improving. If anyone knows my husband knows he has always been very hard working and athletic man. To see him this way has put a shock on us all.
I had not slept for two nights, thus,  I had to leave my husband and go home (30 miles away) to pull myself together and take care of matters at home. I was awaken just now, needing your prayers. I am not sure what I am going to do in so many ways. Our income is very limited; my wonderful husband has taken such fine care of us as I home school my children. When he doesn't work, obviously we do not have any income. Yet, honestly all I really care about is my Brad's health and healing. [Yet, to be frank...this is new for me being the one to make all the decisions and figure out what I am going to do to for an income--wow; BUT I do serve a great and powerful God who in turn is my FATHER...I have no choice but to put my hands in His and allow Him to take care of us.]
I could really use your prayers right now. I have three kids, a church and a great man of God that needs me to lead them and be all they need. 
I would greatly appreciate this. 
May God's power, love and peace be upon all of you. No matter what, ALL IS WELL! I give my God all the Glory!
Thank you, 
Daneille

  5. UP Date On Brad: (as of Mon. eve)
    The tests and lab work all came back PERFECT!!!! His breathlessness persisted along with the tightening of the chest. Though, all came back well.
    The cardiologist said if this continues they will schedule a catherization. We decided to wait and see (that the Lord is good).
    His breathing is almost 50% better than what it was. He was on the nitro.
    We are believing that God Divinely healed Brad. We know it...we have started teachings on Living & Thriving in the Last Days...w/deep studies. Taking steps into another area of ministry as well (area directors for the Voice of the Martyrs). Brad became weak when we started all of this, then when we were discussing and planning on fasting and praying. This happened. With his history of blood clots we knew we had to go into the hospital.
    Presently, he still is weak, tired, tightness of the chest (in the heart) and breathless.
    Believing for total restoration.
    Thank you so very much for your prayers. Ezekiel 36:26 "A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh."
    Keep us in your prayers in all areas of our lives...we are standing on a break through. I am thrilled to have him home and not in a heart ward.
