I am sitting here in my living room in Norway, nursing two hips of which there is nothing to shout hip hip hurrah! about. But how much I have learned of the Lord's unrestricted love in my restricted life. And how the Lord has blest His world through YOU Joni. You know this Joni but I am telling it to you again. One benefit of being 84.11 mos is that one can repeat oneself! So I want to thank the Lord for YOU. I have a distant relative in England, 10 year old Annabel who was playing in the neighbours garden on the climbing frame. She lost her grasp and today is quaraplegic and also unable to breathe, though there is improvement here. Maybe you could pray for little Annabel. May the Lord continue to bless you in your life and ministry- Your sister in Christ Gillian.

Joni, you are a beautiful blessing. I read your first book many years ago and just finished your 3 part book last night. You touched my heart and I will pass your book on to someone else tomorrow. You continue to be an inspiration and I will add you to my daily prayer list. May God rain down His blessings upon you and Ken.

hello joni and ken I was going to bed at 5am and thinking I'm getting old in this wheelchair. And you came immediately into my mind I'm sure it was the Lord. I cannot imagine your battles with pain and cancer at the same time. It was refreshing to hear you say you have reached a mile stone and we are seeing you say I am ALMOST CANCER FREE. PRAISE GOD! We will keep praying for you I can't wait to tell my mom in the morning. BUT we wheelchair bound know that's just one thing out a million. You look great nonetheless. GOD IS FAITHFUL!

Hi Joni, I just purchased your book about Healing for my sweet older sister who was just diagnosed with breast cancer which has metastisized to alot of her bones, and the Lord really did lead me to purchase this book because in the end of the book it stated that you have breast cancer, Little did I know this when I bought the book but my Lord did!!! I have so enjoyed your ministry over the years, and the Lord bless you, I am praying about your chronic pain that the Lord will give you relief and great grace because He giveth more grace!!!

Joni, I saw you tonight on the Christian station and was shocked when you shared your testimony about having Breast Cancer. I was diagnosed about 18 months ago. God has taught me so much. I don't think I'll ever be thankful for having BC, but I'm thankful for how it's changed me. I'm not the same person and love the Lord more now than ever. Some of the things that happen to me were straight from heaven. It was stage 1, no lymph node involvement. I still had a mastectomy with 4 rounds of chemo. The hardest thing was about the young people I would see. I'd think "Lord what do I have to complain about" I'm 56 years old and these people are so young. I also am on the 5 year pill. Since all this has happened God has used me to help several women. They call me and when they do, they open the door for me to minister to them. I actually have a Christian friend that had a double mastectomy today in Indy. Thank you for your testimony. I've read many of your books in the past, some of them twice. I will be praying for your recovery. Love in Christ, Nancy Whitten
