Devotionals For The Wounded

Moses Meltdown

By Steve Marquez Traveling along the rocky road of a cancer patient brings incredible highs and devastating lows. It is inevitable that along the way you meet people who happen to be going in the same direction. Relationships are developed that make the travel a little lighter. Then, one by one, they are called to their eternal home. Their wandering is complete. It is a great joy for them and a blow to us who

About us

Welcome to Stage 4 Ministries.

It is our desire to love and pray for those who are in their “stage 4” time of life.

Hello and welcome to Stage 4 Ministries. If you or a family member is facing a life-threatening or life-altering situation from Cancer to Covid, we want to love and encourage you.

Stage 4 is a term associated primarily with cancer patients.
When cancer metastasizes (moves from one organ to another) a patient is declared to be, “Stage 4.” At that point, the patient is in an “end of life” situation. The cancer is active and on the move. In some cases, there are drugs and other treatments that can counter the growth and spread of tumors and cells. However, every stage4 cancer patient must prepare themselves for their eventual death.

Terminally ill patients and family members face this in a variety of ways.
(1) Sometimes terminally ill patients live with their disease for years without any symptoms. This can cause them to simply deny that there is anything wrong and not focus on it. (2) Others find it difficult to cope and just become overwhelmed. They have no hope in this life, nor in the next. (3) There are others who accept what is happening and understand what living with a terminal illness means and, although they do not want to die, they have prepared themselves for death’s eventuality while fighting to do all they can before it happens. Stage4 ministries is for all three.

We seek to bring hope to the hopeless and point people to where they can peace.
Stage4 ministries has some unlimited possibilities, and we will eventually realize those, but for now, it is a ministry where stage 4 Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC), Kidney Cancer patient, Steve Marquez, shares what he went through, speaking all over the country, encouraging people that in Christ there is hope in this life, and the next. We also desire to pray for your needs.

If you or an immediate family member are fighting a terminal illness, we’d like to encourage you to sign up for prayer. A group of dedicated prayer warriors will pray for your requests.

We will be updating this site with new teachings, helpful articles and a whole host of other helpful information for terminally ill patients and their caregivers. As you peruse the site, please be in prayer for how you might help with the ministry. And, don’t forget about the BLOG section where we will have more up to date, well, updates.

May the LORD be with you as you traverse on this path.
