Good to be back to writing. I thought I would give you a quick update regarding my Friday treatments and our adventure to Redding, CA where we attended the Bethel Spiritual Healing Ministry for physical, emotional, and spiritual healing.
Friday was my immunotherapy day where the Forsythe F.I.T. protocol and Poly MVA treatments were administered. It was a long day—5 hours of drips. During this time Terry and I had the fortunate opportunity to talk to 4 women with Stage 4 breast cancer, 1 woman with Renal Cell Carcinomo, and of course one of my favs, Bret my friend with the brain cancer. It’s amazing how people pull together to talk about natural remedies, detoxification, faith in God, challenges we all face in our health, our life stories, etc. It is a time where the “masks” are removed and people speak from the heart. There is no time for facades and masquerades here at the Century Wellness Center. People speak direct, from the heart, and honestly.
Friday afternoon after treatments Terry and I drove thru Mount Lassen to get to Redding, CA. We arrived shorttly after 7pm. Driving thru the mountains the last hour or so in ptich dark is quite the experience. I was constantly concerned about deer, cattle, skunks, etc., jumping into our path. Thankfully, we made it without incident.
Saturday brought a fresh day and new perspective as we jounyied over to Bethel. Bethel Spirtitual Healing Ministry specializes in praying for healing for all types of ailments. Their mantra is that “Bethel is a cancer free zone”. As many of you know, overcoming an illness is directly impacted by your mental and emotional state—the power of positive thinking can overcome many trials and tribulations. Anyway, at Bethel once you get registered you go thru a healing class, then you are assigned 4 or 5 prayer warriors to pray over you. Once that is complete you can go to their Chapel where they have beautiful praise and worship music playing as well as young ladies dancing on stage along with people praying in the aisles and blessing those seated. it was quite the emotional and spiritual experience.
After that Terry and I decided to go to Starbucks for coffee. So, while there we ran into a woman that we had noticed was in the Chapel at Bethel. We began a conversation with her. She is a psychotherapist by trade. She speaks at women’s conferences. We had a great conversation regarding where we are at in this journey and a unique “perspective” regarding our personal situation.
I think for me it’s about keeping my eyes focused on God as we go thru the fire. I believe we will come out of this as God is faithful just as He has done in the past for many of his followers. The picture that comes to mind is when King Nebuchadnezzar threw Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednago into the Fiery Furnace. Not a hair on either of them were singed, yet the soldiers who took them up to the furnace were burned as they approached the hot furnace. When the King saw 4 men in the furnace walking and talking he was amazed. We don’t know if the 4th man was an Angel or God. The point is that they were protected as they stayed true to God. This is my desire—stay focused on the Great Physician and let Him take me thru the fire—-undaunted.
Believing in the best, thanking you for your support and looking Heavenward,
