In July 2005 I attended Camp meeting as an employee to take care of the Lodge. The Thursday before the end of Camp meeting I took ill and had to be taken to the local hospital twenty miles away. I spent the weekend hooked up to an IV. I had heart problems and my heart was racing. When the weekend was over I was looking forward to going home when my husband came to pick me up. He had phoned me Monday morning and asked me how I felt. I told him I was fine except I felt a bit warm. He told me to tell the nurse and he would be there shortly after lunch to find out why I wasn't being released. He hung up and all of a sudden I became very cold. I started to shake. My legs arms and hands began to flail violently all over the place. That is all I remembered until I woke up and noticed that I was not in the same hospital I was admitted to. I tried to talk but there was something in my mouth and my hands were strapped to my sides. There were bottles on each side of me. There was a tube coming out of the side of my neck. My husband and children were standing over me and telling me they loved me. They were all in tears. I knew then I was dying. So I said to my Father," If I am to go, so be it." I closed my eyes once more.

Apparently, when I started to shake I went septic. I was put on life support and transported to the larger city hospital. I was in the coma for three days. I knew nothing. My family was told to get together because I wasn't expected to live out the night. The Church President and some of the Conference staff met my husband at the hospital and had prayer with my family.

My body was attacked by a man made bacteria and it is still unknown how I contacted it. But I was selected to be in a group to get a placebo or a very potent anti bacteria drug. No one would know except the people in the study group whether I got one or the other.
To this day I don't know what one they gave me but I do know that the prayers of the Conference, my family, friends, and even people I never met were praying for me. Also I believe that God wasn't finished with me yet. So the fact that I am here is proof of what a loving God can do.
Because no matter what Satan throws your way, even trying to take your life, if God wants you to stay, then you ain't going anywhere.

I love my Lord and with my weak heart He will take care of it and when it is time for it to stop I will fear no evil for He will be there when I awake from sleep.
