Friends and Family,
We are very excited and thankful to tell you that Mark's petscan came back negative!!! We give all the honor and glory to God for this result!
We have been praying in faith that God will heal Mark - I will post below some of the scriptures He has given us.
To make a long story short 3 weeks ago Mark had a CT scan which did not look good - there were 3 areas of concern. We agreed to pray that God will heal and we waited to see what the petscan would should.
We went to the oncologist this morning and here is what she told us.
The first area was actually in his lungs and was a bit of pneumonia as a result of the infected port - we also found out that this condition had been life threatening and we praise God again for bringing us through that even when we didn't fully understand the danger Mark was in.
The other two areas are on the liver and they both tested negative on the petscan. One on the right side they are sure in scar tissue from the surgery. One of the left side is a bit small but big enough to test negative. However, to be completely safe they have ordered an MRI be done in two weeks to make completely for certain that this is not a cancerous lesion.
We told our doctor that we know that God has healed him and we were just completed thankful!!
We hope that all of you have a wonderful, wonderful Thanksgiving as I know we will!
We are heading up north to be with my family for the holidays and are very excited about that.
Thank you again for all your prayers - please continue to pray that Mark's body will continue to heal and that no cancer will come back.
With MUCH Thankfulness,
Mark and Lee
Besides reading and studying all the miracles of healing in the gospels where faith was involved the following verses have meant a lot to us.
4Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
8Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
20My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.
21Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
22For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
23Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life
1Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
2Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
3Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases
17That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.
26And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.
1Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
1 John 4:4:
4Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
1 Peter 2:24:
24Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
3 John 1:2:
2Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
17So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
