Our name came about from hearing the testimony of dear friends at church. This is just a glimpse of what inspired our name.
Close to his second birthday, our only son was diagnosed with a rare cancerous tumor entwined in his spinal cord. The prognosis was not good, and the cancer took his life 15 months later. As we watched our son struggle and fight for his life, we prayed that somehow, we could trade places with him; that we could take his cancer on ourselves so that he could live.
That’s exactly what God did for us.
He took our “cancer”—sin—and allowed His only son to die in our place. Jesus then defeated death and rose again so that we would be able to dwell eternally with Him in heaven if we only believe and trust in Him.
Although young, our son understood this with his child-like faith and now lives in the presence of the Almighty Holy God.
If our son could send a message to each of us, it would be only two words, “Be there!” Will you?
