Last Wednesday I received a text from a dear friend of mine in Phoenix. He said that his 15 year old daughter Katie was going in for some tests to determine the reasons for some health issues she was having. I went to bed without knowing the results. I woke up the next morning and I had a text from Steve, Katie’s dad. All it said was Stage IV Cancer.

Katie started chemo yesterday and is in for a huge battle. Steve wrote on his Facebook page

"Thank u everyone... Kk (Katie) is fine. She said she's ready for this. She wanted to do a mission trip w her best friend Ally. I told them that their wish came true. WOW and did it ever. Stay tuned in because these girls are unbelievable. They love God and they love you. This could be the best thing that ever happened to you because you are gonna know what God is all about. Your world may be rocked soon, so YOU BETTER BE READY."

The entire Wagner family is a family of believers with a strong faith in God. So why did this happen to a family that loves the Lord? In John Chapter 9 the disciples ask Jesus who sinned that this man was born blind. What Jesus says next is some of the most comforting verses in the Bible to cling onto when things seem at their worst and when no hope seems to be found.
