The devil is defeated

Gang, it is with a hopeful and prayerful heart that I am writing this email. A few of you know already what Jennifer and I are going through this week so here’s the update and the news for those that don’t know. Our fears were confirmed with an actual biopsy yesterday that my wife and soul mate Jennifer, has breast cancer. We don’t know the details at this point other than we have been advised that aggressive treatment will be needed. We go back to the doctor today at 3:30 to put together our plan of attack to fight this demon. We are both saved by our lord Jesus Christ so we know this is not of God but of our enemy and we are treating it as such. We hold firm to God’s word that says “all things work together for the good of those that believe” and will continue to do so until his glory is made manifest to us in this situation. We also know that many, if not all of you are believers as well and we are asking for your fervent prayers while we fight this fight. I realize that email is not the best way to deliver this type of news and I apologize for that but please understand that I’m not yet ready to begin to talk about it directly until we have had some time to take inventory of the situation. I fully expect to be out of commission for a short period and will talk directly ASAP with those of you that I may need some help from concerning my up and coming team in Raleigh, NC. We have scheduled a lunch and learn there for Wednesday of next week and I’m not sure at this point if I’ll be able to go to that event or not and that may be the first place I need some help. I have not spoken to anyone on the team other than you all as Branch Managers but we are not going to try to keep this a secret. We fully intend to expose it and it’s source for the shameful, rotten, defeated scoundrel that he is and the more believers that we have praying for us the better we know that we will be. I will address those issues with my direct base shop as soon as I work out a support system with Tom and a few of you that are willing to lend a hand for a short period of time. Please know this. We are so grateful to have outstanding people like you all as our team leaders and that gives us more comfort at a time like this than you may ever know. Jennifer and I think of you all as family and we hope you feel the same about us which is why I wanted to get this off my heart today.

Dear heavenly Father, we lift up Jennifer to you and ask, will you please heal her? We believe nothing is impossible for You and we put all our trust in You alone, Lord Jesus. Will you please remove all doubt, fear and worry? May both Todd and Jennifer find a place of peace in Your presence and in Your Word. Thank You, Lord Jesus Christ - you are the Prince of Peace!

Isaiah 53:5
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

1 Peter 2:24
Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
