Praying for you all! I first saw/met Donnie at Harvest church 29yrs ago, I was 10yrs old little girl lost and hurting. I walked up to the front for prayer for my back, I was diagnosed with scoliosis and was in a bulky back brace. My deformed little body ached with every move. I knelt down not even knowing why I walked up to the front. But something Donnie said impacted me greatly. As I was looking down at the floor I felt a giant hand touch my back and all of a sudden I felt God presence for the very first time. I don’t even know how long Donnie prayed for me but afterwards my back began to hurt differently. I asked my mom when we got home if I could remove my brace and sleep with out it. The next morning was our appointment with the specialist to prepare for my surgery. So x-rays were needed. I felt like we waited hours for the doctors to return with our plan. They all walked in the room holding my x-rays and with a strange look. They turned on the light and held up my x-rays and then began to say, we don’t know how this even happened but Tara back went from a 25 degree to only 3!!! Medically she doesn’t have scoliosis anymore!!! My mom burst into tears and I was in shock!! I yelled..JESUS HEALED ME!! HE IS REAL!!! And from that moment on, I have followed Him with everything!! Jesus used Donnie to touch many lives!! I am so thankful today that Jesus used Him to hear a small little girl request which was To know He is real and He hears our prayers! He also taught me to “ask big” and to have the faith to know He does hear us. Last year I watched the same God who heard my cry and healed my back, He heard my daughter cry and healed her back from scoliosis too!! My faith was birthed the night Donnie prayed for me!! And 29 yrs later I still have the same Faith in Our God, our Father who is a Good, GOOD FATHER!!! Again, THANKYOU for sharing your dad/husband with us all, Jesus used His son to touch so many!! And this daughter will be forever grateful!!!
Praying for you all,
