'There's Nothing Else They Can Do'
Part of the Rapid Response Team's responsibility during a deployment is to be ready for the unexpected.

The unexpected came two days after the Sanders arrived in the tiny town of Norco, about 7 miles away from LaPlace.

Turns out, hospice was sending home a woman in her late 50s fighting the final stages of cancer and they brought the family together to the house.

“They told them there's nothing else they can do,” Ginger said. “She was just days from dying.”

So Dennis and Ginger went to present a Billy Graham Training Center Bible to the family and try to help comfort them with a prayer.

They shared about the hope and love of Christ to the family and after much conversation, led six family members to receive Jesus, including the husband of the dying woman, who kept lamenting, “I'm losing my best friend.”

“And as soon as we said 'Amen,' a car light shined through the window,” Ginger said. “It was the ambulance who was here with her. They all had just enough opportunity to receive Jesus.”

God's miraculous timing didn't stop there.

The dying woman was taken to a back bedroom and was writhing in pain and incoherent.

Ginger and the woman's pastor went to visit her in the bedroom and shared the gospel message with her anyway.

“The pastor said, 'I don't know if you can hear me or not, but God loves you,'” Ginger recalled. “If you don't know Him, if you can understand me, pray this in your heart.”

And as if God was calming a raging ocean, the moment the pastor started praying, the woman went completely still.

“Even her hand stopped twitching,” Sanders said. “But when he said, 'Amen,' she started moving again.”

Continue to pray for the Isaac victims, as well as the 17 Rapid Response Team chaplains, who are ministering in four different parishes throughout the Gulf region (St. Tammany, St. John The Baptist, Jefferson, Plaquemines).
