Background Story

Lorelei thinks about the timing of finding this cancer.  The middle of her senior year of high school.  Yeah, it sucks that she'll have to be bald for her senior prom.  But God's timing is perfect.  Lorelei is a Christ follower.  There are over 2,000 students at her high school who have known this about her as she has always identified as a Christian.   But now, there are 2,000 pairs of eyes really focused on her.  Watching to see if this Jesus stuff is real.  If this cancer had been detected any later, she might have missed the opportunity to glorify God in front of 2,000 kids who are about to enter the world searching for their own purpose in life.    Please join us in praying for these students and the staff at Putnam City North High School.  We believe God is at work in a huge way and Lorelei just gets to have a front row seat.

  • Something Is Not Right

    It's Saturday, January 28, 2012 and Lorelei has had to leave Tiffany Castell's funeral early because her persistent cough has become uncontrollable--she was feeling like her presence was an interruption to the funeral. Since it is Saturday, and her family doctor is all booked up, we have no choice but to go to the ER or go to an after hours clinic (as I lovingly refer to as "Doc in a Box.)  We select the Doc in a Box.  After all, it's just a cough.
