3 years ago today God used a special man and doctor in our lives, to give Steve Marquezmore time here on this earth. And God provided the miracle. Steve was still Stage 4, but active tumor free for two years.
And he can walk! Praise the Lord!
We are still grateful and thankful.
Here are some memories of that day. You can also read Steve’s testimony on it, at stage4ministries.com
Went into surgery at 10;05am.
A comment from that post:
“Dear Monica, we’re still praying for Steve, you, and your sons. 2 Thessalonians 2:16 Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and our God and Father, who has loved us and given us everlasting consolation and good hope by grace, 17 comfort your hearts and establish you in every good word and work.”
……Update….still in surgery.
A couple of comments from that update:
“Dang! Poor guy, he’s a trooper for sure – Steve is much stronger than I am that’s for sure!”
“Been praying all day.”
I want to say, “Hurry it up,” but…them rushing through anything isn’t such a good idea. Hang in there Monica!”
……Still working….getting close to closing. Said about another hour.
“Man…that is a LONG surgery…we are with you on this!”
“Praying for our beloved pastor and all you guys! God is good, hang in there :)”
…..Dr just came out. Everything went well with very little blood loss. PTL!!! Goes from T10 to the Ilium. This precious dr was determined to get the rest of that tumor and he DID!!!! He said there is a very small amount left in Steve’s muscle and he said they will ‘get it’ with radiation. One of Steve’s nurses was just here to check on him. She was so excited at the news. As am I.
