“…the righteous gives and does not hold back.” Proverbs 21:26
Message from Jerry K. Rose
—Chairman of the Board, Total Living International
Because you, and others like you, faithfully stand together with us in prayer and generous support, TLN was there when Stacey Padrick Thompson needed us the most.
Stacey’s personal struggle with systematic lupus had been a painful challenge for her. But what was even more painful was Stacey and her husband’s difficulty having a child. As much as they wanted a child of their own, it just wasn’t happening. They had tried for years to become parents but her illness made it even more difficult. As a young woman, her faith helped her accept and work through her illness, but her desire to have a child lay heavy on her heart.
A Note from our President – Debra Fraser
From My Heart to Yours
Like Stacey, are you trusting God to come through for you?
Does it seem outside the realm of possibility?
Stacey’s story reminded me of my own daughter’s illness when Kristen was two years old. For months she would remain undiagnosed as Jack and I held her and prayed for her. A prayer team prayed for Kristen regularly. As time went on it was more difficult to trust, but we held on through prayer and faith. Kristen would eventually be diagnosed and in God’s timing, the symptoms were gone! That’s why I take seriously the impact we have as influencers for Christ. Together, we help inspire people like Stacey and often ourselves to greater faith and answered prayer – even those outside the realm of human possibility.
