This outreach has been inspired by the life and loving memory of Carlo DeSantis who despite the many struggles and physical ailments found hope, strength, healing and forgiveness in Jesus Christ.
Truly I am your servant, Lord;
........you have freed me from my chains.
I will sacrifice a thank offering to you
and call on the name of the Lord.
Carlo DeSantis went to be with the Lord in 2010. He had suffered with liver disease and eventually died of an inoperable liver tumor.
He always had a smile and was hospitable to all. He was known to his family and friends as a generous man. He loved to be involved in helping the needy.
We dedicate this outreach to his loving memory.

Greetings in the name of Yeshua, Jesus, the Messiah!
My name is Nancy and I have been a massage therapist for over twenty years. In spite of being in the health and wellness field I was diagnosed with stage three uterine cancer, and had a total hysterectomy in January 2014. I improved, however the cancer returned and I was diagnosed with a peach sized, inoperable tumor by my aorta. In January 2017 I was also laid off from my job. God’s Word says “In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God concerning you in Christ Jesus” (I Thess. 5:18). This job loss now qualified me to receive Medicaid. I was approved for Medicaid and $736 a month for disability (for rent).
When I first became ill God told me to look at Psalm 118:17. It reads: “I will not die, but live, and will proclaim what the Lord has done.” (NIV) He has been faithful to take me through this difficult time, leaving His “footprints” along the way. The medical doctors told me that conventional practices such as radiation and chemotherapy could not be used, and that I should look into palliative (pain management) care. They believe that, if they shrink the tumor, the resulting hole in my intestines would cause sepsis, where bacteria would invade my bloodstream. My symptoms are shortness of breath due to blood loss and lower back pain. According to the reports, the tumor made a hole (fistula), connecting with my intestines. (It is also pressing on my right kidney.) This is what is causing the blood loss. Also, the tumor has invaded my L-3 (spine), making it difficult to stand and walk. I was in the hospital over Easter 2017 and received 3 units of blood. Blood helps! I asked God “How do you want to heal me?” I returned to the last thing I knew He said: drink vegetable juices and sweat in a far infra-red sauna. I have been juicing since April 18 and all my edema disappeared. Yea! While in the hospital I experienced lower back pain, and needed to use a wheel chair to get around. I prayed and God showed me some things about healing. I was watching a healing video at 2am, while in pain in my bed. As I watched, an intense heat emitted from my sacrum for 20 minutes. It got hotter and hotter. I was saying “Thank you, God!” and then “tested out” my body. I could walk, bend and even dance without pain. PTL! So, I experienced a healing. God says “He who has begun a good work in you will bring it unto completion through Christ Jesus.” (Phil. 1:6). I am believing for total healing. I am currently working with a naturopathic doctor, medical doctor and chiropractor. I am using alternative therapies and am asking God to guide my steps.
My needs now are for prayer, healing, and finances. My savings have been depleted and my disability check covers my rent but no other expenses. Would you consider donating towards my specific bills and medical expenses (which is permissible on disability)? You may do so through the PayPal donate button on this website, www.aquilachristian.net. PayPal will send you an immediate receipt which may be used for tax-deduction purposes.
My desire is to become completely well and be able to return to work. I am believing God, as He is Jehovah Rapha, our healer. If you wish to contact me, you may do so by emailing: [email protected].
Although you may not know me, I appreciate your prayers and any financial contributions you can make. God’s Word says that He “causes all things to work together for good” (Romans 8:28). We give Him the pieces and He will give us His peace! I hope that, through all this, I may be able to help others who find themselves in a similar situation, and give glory to God in the land. Thank you so much!
