Saving Face With Faith

The name of the Lord is a strong fortress; the godly run to Him and are safe. Proverbs 18:10

What If ...

Suddenly, you were faced with the awful decision of having surgery that would leave your face extremely disfigured or dying from a cancer so painful not even the strongest of pain medications would ease your suffering? What if you were forced to wear a mask every day of your life, not to hide your disfigurement, but to filter pollutants from the air? What if you not only had to fight cancer but also the prejudice of being different? Think it can't happen? Think again. On August 21, 2003, Donnie Fritts had surgery to remove his nose, top lip, upper palate, forehead, facial tissue and bone as well as part of his brain due to a rare form of cancer called Ameloblastic Carcinoma. Since that time, Donnie has had more than 40 surgical procedures to restore part of what was lost to him. As you can imagine, this process has been neither painless nor inexpensive. The technicians and doctors are doing difficult and amazing work.

 

Throughout this entire ordeal, God has sent so many blessings. Sharon and Donnie have a wonderful testimony to share. Their testimony is inspiring to all who hear it and even more so to those who are witness to it. If you would like to have them speak at you church or service group, please click here.
