I decided to write a book about my life, in 2006 which turned out to be a different book all together. I love to write. I always loved to write, but I stopped around thirteen. After all the tragedies in my life I decided to write my story and maybe help others.

For a second in the church there was not a sound and then in the next instant ther was such a clamor and outpouring of praise worship that the pastor had to lay aside his prepared sermon. But this wasn't a miracle it was simply the logical outcome of the way this elder had lived the last thirty years of his life. He didn't live and breath his church, nor his pastor, he was a student of Christ and he lived what he read and understood in his heart. I have catalogued several other men and women with similar experiences looking at both there medical history and their spiritual history. I call it spiritual surveillance- "The Journey Not unto Death" We literally hold eternity in the palm of our hands and don't know that we already possess everything we need to save ourselves. This is what I am about!
I followed the case files of the elder, his medical diagnosis and subsequent treatment. His particular form of cancer Hodgskins Lymphoma was well advanced yet he came to church, worked in the church with cheerful indifference except I knew he was in pain. Any way just before he was to undergo a major bout of radiation and chemotherapy a blood test was taken and all the RS cells systemic to the disease were not in his blood. I saw the test. I did not tell him Isaw the test. I was not his doctor. The following sunday he rose from his seat and simply said "My illness was not unto death but for the glory of God and for that I am grateful and here to testify so that the Son of God might thereby be glorified." (John 11:4) and he sat down.
I was at church some years ago when a man got up, and elder in the church after being almost rudely addressed by a visiting African minister. The African misiter a well known prophet in these pentacostal circles, decribed the disease the elder had naming the kind of cancer describing the treatments he was recieving in great detail. The elder was clearly stunned and had not told the pastor in his own church how truly ill he was. I have an extensive education in the sciences and medicine.
