I have to tell this because I am so proud of our town.
There is a well known and well respected and loved man who is dying of prostate cancer and he had been in Chicago receiving some new treatment that didn’t work and he doesn’t have long to live. I think he’s only about 55.
His wife was home because she has osteoporosis and had broken her pelvis. She couldn’t get there to be with him as he is dying and they couldn’t afford to fly him home for 17K on a medi-flight. Our home town bank immediately gave them a loan and put out the SOS for donations and raised 22K in 1 1/2 hours.
Now for the rest of the story. He got home Monday. He was raised Catholic and became Baptist about 20 years ago. Yesterday he called for the priest to come and give him Last Rites. I am sure that I’m not the only one who asked God to give him that gift but God answered ASAP.
What a great testimony and story.
Peole on their deathbeds, somehow recognize their mistakes and call for the priest.
Another person saved!
