A testimony from a visitor followed immediately...

We have a child that's gonna be facing heaven which is a blessing very soon...

But it'll be four years in January toward the end that our daughter called and said that she'd just got word from the doctor that she had a mass at the base of her brain. And I was sitting down at the time, and I thank God I was sitting down cause I feel like I could have just dropped. I felt something from here down to here and I turned to my husband and I said ____ has a mass at the base of her brain.

She was only... I don't know... How old was she ____, ____? Something like that? And my world just came to an end. I knew that if she died she'd go straight to heaven. I knew that without a doubt. I thought of her husband. I thought of her four year old little boy and that's what hurt me the worst. I knew if something happened to her I would be just totally devastated.

But when I thought of love and I thought Oh God, don't take her. She's got a little boy that nobody can take her place with and suddenly I just turned to God and knew that there was no one else that I could turn to and no one else that I could get my strength from. My God. And you know? I got a peace.

And I knew that no matter what happened, God was in control. He knew what was going on and He knew the outcome.

And I just praise God that she had a brain doctor that is one of the top eight doctors in the world that happened to be 30 miles from where we lived. And it's not that I feared how it'd come out. I mean those few days before she had the surgery but I've always turned to God and said "God you're in control". I know you're going to take care of this one way or the other.

It was speedy. Within - oh by February 13th she had the surgery. She blue coded on the table. We did not know that till eight months later. But then the doctor came in. The nurses knew something was up. Because normally he comes in after surgery and then he comes in in the morning. And that doctor came in about eight o'clock after surgery, he was there at midnight, he was there at four o'clock in the morning and he came back again in the morning before he went into the office. She had a great doctor.

She had a greater God and we just thank God. It was the size of a golf ball and they got it down to the size of a marble. It was not cancer and when he came in after surgery and said, "It is not malignant", I said "Thank you Jesus". And he looked at me. I don't know if he thought I was talking to him. I wasn't. I was happy. Thank you.
