Sometimes God brings someone close to your heart just before they go through something. It was that way with my Chinese son in law’s big sister. I met her when she came for a visit a few months before I left China. A saint with a sense of humour, I instantly liked and grew fond of her, as did we all. Just a few weeks after her return to the US we got the news she had been diagnosed with bone cancer. We were all devistated.
A new Christian, she asked for prayer before going for her first course of treatment. We all prayed up a storm, it seemed so wrong, someone who had always been there for others, a single mum with a ten year old son, one of the kindest people one could ever meet. Why her?
Then wonderful news came, after a few preliminary tests the doctors couldn’t explain it. There was no sign whatsoever of bone cancer. It was just gone!
