Jackie Lewis's Testimony

If you have been touched by Jackie Lewis, if you have felt the ripple effect from her life, if you have a fun story to tell of your time with her, or a photo that brings a memory, PLEASE click on this link:
and tell others how her life touched yours.

(The service may be viewed by webcast.  The website for online viewing of Wednesday’s Life Celebration Service will be listed here Monday 3/10.)
“Don’t cry because it’s over; smile because it happened.” – Dr. Seuss

Please continue to pray for Bill and his children, Jacob, Eli, Bella and Nemo.
Within the last few weeks Jackie read this in front of a large audience.

(The video of this is below)
” I am a part of the fellowship of the Unashamed. I have the Holy Spirit Power. The die has been cast. I have stepped over the line. The decision has been made. I am a disciple of Jesus Christ. I won’t look back, let up, slow down, back away, or be still. My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, and my future is secure. I am finished and done with low living, sight walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tame visions, mundane talking, chintzy giving, and dwarfed goals.
I no longer need preeminence, prosperity, position, promotions, plaudits, or popularity. I don’t have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded. I now live by presence, learn by faith, love by patience, lift by prayer, and labor by power. My pace is set, my gait is fast, my goal is Heaven, my road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions few, my Guide is reliable, my mission is clear. I cannot be bought, compromised, deterred, lured away, turned back, diluted, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.
I won’t give up, back up, let up, or shut up until I’ve preached up, prayed up, paid up, stored up, and stayed up for the cause of Christ. I am a disciple of Jesus Christ. I must go until He returns, give until I drop,
preach until all know, and work until He comes.
And when He comes to get His own, He will have no problem recognizing me. My banner will be clear! for “I am not ashamed of the Gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes…” -author unknown

As a result of this post, I did a lot of reading on the links. Was the cause of Jackie's illness ever determined? This is such a tragic story and my heart goes out to her family and friends.
