how your love sustains me

Day 11 -feeling very good, no nausea etc...I am eating well, everyone is surprised at my "good" fact I would be in "perfect health" if it wasn't for the cancer (minor detail..ha..ha) The main thing to pray for remains the same ...we want to see -0-zero-cancer cells in the bone marrow test on tuesday (pray your little hearts out for me!)

We know that God is love and we are sustained by the power of His love...but God does an unusual thing, He choses to express His sustaining love through the love of family, friends, and the Body of Christ. I expressed to my 83 year old mother just today, who by the way, is a cancer survivor herself, that her love for me expressed through prayer, encouragement, hope and just raw motherly concern for her child, was like driving a giant pillar up under a sagging foundation and lifting the whole house. All of you, praying for me, sending cards and letters and testimonies, your financial support, your care and concern for me and my family have litterally been like those giant pilliars rooted deeply into God's love lifting me spiritually and physically to a place of hope and new beginnings. This how your love sustains me:)

From the most greatful heart on earth! Love you all back----kit

We are praying our little hearts out for you! And Tuesday we'll even more. I'm going to try to fast starting midnight (I said try, because I'm just like Shelly, I can't see a piece of chocolate and not have it), I'm kidding I'll fast and pray and I encourage everyone else to do the same. Our faithful Father will answer our prayers.
We love you Kit, and we want you back here in Maui, and Shelly too. It's not fun not having her around.
Pretty soon you'll be the one saying "I'm a cancer survivor".
God Bless You!
Dio & family

Dear Kit,
I learned the news of your present situation just today, Saturday, April 5th. My heart truly goes out to you while tears stream down my face as I type this note to you.
God is sovereign nonetheless. What an incredible test for you to endure.
You can be sure that I'll pray my little heart out for you. I also already told Mike Robinson about what's going on as well. You'll be in our prayers.
I'm hoping to see you again dear friend. - John O'Donnell
