Leukemia - the Death Penatly Revoked


Why have we started this website?

Tears of thankfulness ran down my cheeks when our first grandchild was born – I thought that I may never see any grandchildren after being diagnosed with Leukemia. Tears of thankfulness running unashamedly flowed sometimes when we sat in a restaurant and the wonder of the healing hit us once again.

We know what it is to cry with deep sorrow when Emile went to be with our Father in heaven. We know what it is to answer a call: “Your son is missing and his hotel room is burning”. We know what it is to hate intensely and then to forgive.

Through this journey we have decided not to change our faith to fit our circumstances, but to change our circumstances through our faith. We do not deny the reality, but we deny the authority the reality has over us. Our son is not dead, he is alive and well. We did not lose a son; we know exactly where he is. And one day we will reunite with him and our Lord Jesus the Christ.

This website contains the lessons we have learnt through our journey through life. May some of it motivate you to carry on walking even if all the circumstances look like everything is falling apart. May you through our experiences learn to trust like we have learnt to trust and more, love like we have learnt to love and more and to forgive like we had to and more.
