|"May the Lord continue to bless all of you at In Touch. You have been sustaining us during the trials that the Lord sees fit to give us."
My name is Lilia Gallo. I have been listening to your radio program for many years. I really don't have a question to ask you, for your messages have always answered the questions that I have. I just want to tell you how In Touch has helped our family endure the storms of life when we've applied God's Word in the messages that you have given lately. Within the last three years, our lives have been slowly falling downward: first with the death of my father in-law due to cancer. He fought for six months, but in the end, the cancer won. Then with my mother's stroke that left her paralyzed on her right side. I was the caretaker for both of them at the same time. In addition to this, I have always suffered from depression.
My faith in God has been my constant strength during these many years. We lost our home last year due to the economy, then we experienced another major tragedy. Our sons were involved in the death of the baseball player from the Angels baseball team. The final straw is that our granddaughter was born May 29th with a very rare illness. She was born without the formation of her skull. Her chances of survival were zero at birth. Her illness doesn't even have a name. She has other severe illnesses due to this. Her life has been a constant battle to survive.
The doctors are quick to say, "How much longer do you want her to suffer?" It seems they are always ready to have the mother give the order to end her life. This baby, named Saraya, is not on life support. Our constant strength has been our Lord Jesus Christ and our faith in the promises He has given us. Your messages have been touching us more and more. It's as if God has been using your ministry to talk to us through the messages you give. I am on disability and have been unable to send any offering to your ministry. All I can do is to continue to pray for you and your ministry. Maybe one day when we get our feet back on the ground, we will be able to donate. I just have been feeling a great need to thank you and all who help you in your ministry.
May the Lord continue to bless all of you at In Touch. You have been sustaining us during the trials that the Lord sees fit to give us. I pray that financially your radio ministry will continue to endure during these hard economic times. I am blessed to belong to a very good home church. They love the Lord and also pray for our family.
God bless you, Dr. Stanley, and your ministry.
