At our most trying times, the Lord is near.

     This is Jackie, she is a long-time friend of Sis. Karen Pereda. She is a mother of three beautiful children, a devoted wife, softball coach, Nurse, and dear friend. When Karen was at Cedars Sinai fighting for her life - Jackie was there. She didn't even hestiate going all the way down to LA even though she had her own family and responsibilites. That is the kind of person Jackie is. She stayed by Karen's bedside for days while Karen was in a coma receiving life-saving treatments. Jackie is a part of us.

     In September Jackie was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. She has started intense chemo therapy and has a long road of radiation and more surgeries ahead of her. Jackie loves the Lord and her faith is going to be tested, but she is strong and is putting her trust in the Lord!

     She needs our prayers, of course, but she also needs financial support. Her family is now down to one income and the medical bills are already coming in.  In Luke 1:22 is says "But be doers of the word, and not hearers only..."

Let's put our love into action and help Jackie and her family.
