From The Manager’s Desk God Answers Prayer David Andrews

This Valentine’s Day, I have a fresh perspective on John 3:16.
Just over 3 weeks ago, our little family had been sick with something like the flu, when my wife, Susun, and I were getting pretty worried about our 2 year old daughter, Ellianna.  She seemed to have what we had, but wasn’t getting any better.  We had already visited the doctor once. We were told it was likely a virus and IF she wasn’t any better within 2 days, to come back.  She wasn’t. 
On the morning of the 9th, we had her at the doctor’s office first thing in the morning.  She was sent straight to the emergency room at St. Mary’s and then the trauma unit, where they ran some pretty rough tests and procedures, to find out that she was Type 1 Diabetic, that she was about to be flown to the ICU at Children’s Hospital of Colorado in Denver, and things were not looking good.  The onset was taking a toll on her little body…she was in Severe DKA (Diabetes Ketoacidosis).  Her little veins had collapsed and they couldn’t get fluids into her. 

She was fighting for her life. 
My wife was to travel with Ellie by plane originally, while I went home and packed a few small items to drive to Denver, and then meet them at Children’s.  Amid the delirium of what I am now calling the “worst day of my life,” I recalled my little girl oddly telling me days before “Daddy, I need Jesus,” and praying with her, thinking this is a curious thing for a 2 year old to be doing.  I began wondering if God was telling me something I could not imagine was coming. That was when my wife texted that the hospital changed their mind and needed to get Ellie to  the Children’s Hospital even faster…they were going to helicopter her in instead.  I realized I might never see my little girl alive again.

I cried out to God….literally.  I don’t think I have ever prayed like that.  And in the days to follow, as Ellie slowly recovered step by step, I found out about others who were praying for her…a lot of others…and not just praying…crying out to God on our behalf.  I have never personally experienced anything like it.  And I am so blessed to say, God answered our prayers.

Yes, she will have to be treated for Type 1 the rest of her life.  But she is alive!

And when I recently came across John 3:16, I have a fresh new understanding of God’s love for His only begotten Son, and His deep love for us, in that He sent His Son, whom He loves, to die to save us.  What pain that must have caused the Father. What serious love He must also have for us, to make it possible.

I want to say a BIG thank you to all who were praying for Ellie, and ask that you continue to prayer for her and the others in a similar situation in the Western Slope.  Prayer is effective.  I know it is…as we approached the end of our week long stay at Children’s Hospital, a stranger out of the blue told us that our daughter has such a beautiful name.  That was when it hit me... we named our little girl, “Ellianna,” which means “God answers prayer.”

Kurt's Music News Three new musicians to KJOL

KurtDavid Dunn
This is not David Dunn, a character in the movie “Glass.”  This is David Dunn the musican, who brought us “I Wanna Go Back” (to Jesus loves me, this I know).  Growing up in Texas, David got an engineering degree before going to Africa for a year of missions work.  He returned with malaria and a new perspective on life.  After appearing on TV’s “The Voice” he received a recording contract.  His latest song is “Grace Will Lead Me Home.”
Anthem Lights
Anthem Lights is a mostly acapella group of four classmates from Liberty University.  Founding member Alan Powell starred in the faith-based movie “The Song” about a fictional singer whose marriage suffers when the song he wrote for his wife propels him to stardom.  The group performs an acapella version of “Doxology” in which Selah joins them on the third verse.
David & Nicole Binion
David and Nicole’s two families grew up singing together in Texas, but because David was 12 years older, he never got to know Nicole.  Then Nicole’s famly moved to Indiana, but when the Binions came for a concert, David and Nicole reconnected and soon were married.  Today they lead worship at Covenant Church in Dallas, and record with Integrity Music.  Their latest song is “My Soul Follows.”
