On this day in 2001, Pastor and Lady Michael underwent critical kidney transplant surgery that ended 5 years of dialysis for Lady Michael. By God’s amazing grace, Pastor Michael was a miraculous 5-point (near perfect!) match and was lovingly able to demonstrate the scripture “Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;” (Ephesians 5:25)
February 13th, 2001 (Valentines Day-eve) will forever hold endearing memories of an astounding and refining moment for both of them and stand as a testimony of love that will be shared from generation to generation. It is their prayer that their testimony will instruct and inspire everyone to prayerfully and patiently seek God’s direction in choosing a spouse and that couples will stand strong (by the power of Christ’s example of love) in their marital covenant.
Because it’s so true that children learn from what they see more than by what they hear, it is Pastor and Lady Michael’s prayer that their children and grandchildren will accept nothing less that true love and that they will be able to clearly see and gracefully show the incredible truth that “… the greatest of these is love…” (1 Corinthians 13:13) Love is the greatest power!
Father in Jesus name, I thank you for your miraculous ability in that you came so I can have abundant life. I’m one grateful wife and daughter of the KING. (Lady Tania Michael)
God, please let our children and grandchildren grow strong and steady in your incomparable love. (Pastor Horace C. Michael)
