Between the Tropics

While I was in the Philippines last week people kept oppologizing because it was too hot. I told them I'd soak it up for my return to winter. Pittsburgh gave me enough cold to make me appreciate next week in Guatemala even more.

Last night, when I performed Lazarus by Sean Gaffney I picked a gal to interact with, based on where she was sitting. She asked me afterward if it was based on her Lazarus story. She was told she'd need heart surgery, but her friends (including Jim and Pat LaBossier, who invited me to perform) prayed for her. When she returned for a presurgery scan the doctor questioned whether he had the right image! He compared it to the scan that convinced him she needed the surgery. He said they looked like two completely different hearts! Praise the Lord, our Healer. Pray for her continued healing as she recovers from the cancer that caused the heart condition.

That story warms my heart now that I'm back in NYC, where the temperature is dropping fast.

Thanks for sharing this story Rich.
Lillita, the woman mentioned above, shared her testimony with us the night before your performance. We continue to rejoice over God's mercy and healing. Thanks again for "putting flesh" onto some of our favorite bible chracters.

That's great! That must be how she thought I'd heard her story.
