    Thank you for your ministry!! You have blessed so many of my friends with your heartfelt outreach and help.
    I requested a basket for my sister Jean in Wisconsin. Just wanted you to know that she will be in DFW visiting me in just two weeks, so if you would like to save some money on shipping, we could pick up the basket at BTBF.
    Thanks again and God bless,

I saw your request and we’ll be at Bent Tree this Sunday at the cancer support group right after the 2nd service in Frisco Corner. Far right of lobby facing auditorium. If we don’t meet you there, we’ll just ship on Tuesday, but hope to meet you there. Please let me know that you got this message.

  • Jennifer Day says:

    This is just what I needed to see today. I’ve been fighting colon cancer for 2 and 1/2 years, twice in that time. I’ve been on chemo the whole time, had numerous surgeries. Some days I feel so defeated and there have been a lot of them lately. I can’t wait to get this and start reading the books. Thank you for everything you do!

    • admin says:

      Glad you found us, Jennifer! You’ve been at it for a while which makes it more wearisome. So I’m asking Him to grant you total healing and supernatural strength direct from His hand. Hope our books help! Sending your gift basket tomorrow! Blessings!

  • Wayne Hyder says:

    Thanks for doing this. My wife got the news she had breast cancer the day before Thanksgiving of this year (2017) four days later I found out I have cancer in my Lymph-nodes in my neck.

    • admin says:

      Oh my, Wayne, so sorry to hear for both of you! Lifting you both up and asking Him to give you both total healing and supernatural strength! If it’s any consolation we have had 27 couples since we started counting about five years ago who are BOTH fighting at the same time! At least you know you’re not alone. Let me know if you’d like to discuss with one of those couples, or if you’d like to talk or pray over the phone. Our info is on our contact page – We’re in your corner!

    I want this gift basket for my father, but he doesn’t speak english.

  • kathryn jewell says:

    Thank you for the gift basket. Reading the books have been helpful helping me understand why God has brought me this pain, after being born with a rare chronic kidney disease, raising children alone after divorce, and other trials in life. I gave my life to the Lord many years ago, and said , ” I am your servant do with me what you will”. He brought me to a clinic to save the unborn with my ultrasound skills. Being taken away from my work for the Lord showing these girls their babies has been confusing as that was my calling. Now I realize ,after reading My Stronghold, he has another calling . I am not sure what he wants from me now so I shall pray for him to guide me. I certainly have time to pray while finishing chemo. I keep my crocheting supplies in the Stronghold carry bag. (THE BAG has gone to Chemo, dr appointments , and even to TX for Christmas for a visit to MD ANDERSON. )
    Thank you for your work. I need to talk to God more as I drifted away during my cancer fight. I was losing my faith, and questioned death, God, and heaven. I felt I was already in hell. My faith was so strong, how could these thoughts even come to my mind. Now I have a better understanding and hopefully can get back on the right track again. GOD BLESS YOUR MINISTRY.

    • admin says:

      Glad you wrote, Kathryn, and found your gift basket helpful! been thinking about Job, he was not doing much wrong in life, in fact God was bragging about his faithfulness. Yet God allowed Job to be severely tested so that he would be strengthened and blessed even more in the end! He will guide you in your next step after testing. I’m sure He will use and bless you even more!
      Thanks for blessings and kind words,
      Joe Fornear
