kit speaks:)

Hey everyone...if you are still checking in, this is Kit...your prayers for healing seem to be sustaining me right now...my back was healed two Fridays ago as everyone prayed for me and it has been getting better everyday since then...for 8 weeks my blood counts have all been normal, which means no blood transfusions. I am on a strict vegetable juice diet for cleansing...the affects of the chemo and antibiotics have all dissipated and my skin, glands, hormones, organs are all returning to a "normal" function...even my hair is coming back (nothing to write home about...but some hair)...in the "natural" and according to modern medical science I should still die soon, but as most of us know and believe, God has the final say so on my life... Whether I live or die and how long...in fact we are all kind of in the same boat...the only time we have here on planet earth that is guaranteed is right now...non of us have the next moment for sure. Our life here, the Bible says, is but a vapor, like a little wisp of smoke...here for a brief moment and then gone. The important thing is; what we do with that brief moment?...because according to Christ, all eternity for us hangs on our answer to that question. It is my hope for you today that you would choose God's love for your life. It would be my hope for you that you would choose your family, your children, you wife or husband, your friends to live your moment for and with. For when we choose these things in the moment we are given here on earth, we choose that which is good, right, pure, lovely and we capture these things in the moment for all eternity and they can never be taken from us...never. I hope to speak next Friday and see you all again...it has been a blessing for me to be able to speak to the church and for my friends and family far away to be able to listen via our website at hopechapelmaui.net Please continue to pray for God's miracle of healing.
PS...I will be leading a prayer for healing this Sunday evening at Hope Chapel 6:00PM...I send all my love and thanks to you for your continued prayers and support.

Thanks for your update Kit. I check your post everyday and am always so encouraged by the messages i read. I look forward to hearing you speak next week. I've always loved the way the Lord speaks through you and especially now it seems every sermon you give hits home more than ever. It's so inspiring to see the strength the Lord gives you to stand and speak each time. I am so happy to hear that you are feeling better and will continue to pray for a miracle!

May God's Grace, Power, Wisdom,and Mercy be on you today and every day.
You are Awesome!

We are touched in many ways by how God is using you For His Glory!

Dear Kit,
Of course we are still checking in!! How wonderful that your back is healed and the other effects of this experience so far are diminishing.
So many things these days push us into living in the now instead of in the middle of next week. Finding pleasure in the little things (like hair!! and the deer I see right now wandering through the mist in the trees) instead of worrying about tomorrow--
Realizing that our heavenly father values us more than the lilies of the field and is commited to taking care of us, no matter our circumstances.
Our prayers are renewed for you and your family.
His mercies are new every morning.
Aloha,
Lynne Andagan

One more thing Kit. You have shown all of us how to live even in the shadow of death. You have lived more through this than most people do that are not fighting from an illness. I will live today!!!!!!!
Thank you

I check in almost daily, Kit. We have prayed for your healing, and it looks like the Lord is doing it! It's exciting that your back is better. Now we'll pray for your bone marrow.

Most happy to have been one of the many whose hands were directed by God to give you "hands-on healing"...

"To heal" is an old Middle English term (before 900 a.d.) that means "to make whole." This obviously suggests that we are NOT healed as long as we behave as though we are NOT whole (or separate from one another and God). Therefore, by your own amazing demonstration of love for everything and everyone around you, Kit, you ARE healed where it most counts... in your mind, in your heart...and now we "wait upon the Lord" as we come together as a UNIFIED WHOLE and watch your healing continue to unfold into the miracle you are for us all.

Thanks to everyone out there for keeping the rest of us informed.
