Today, I made a visit to a local hospital to see an old friend. Krista McCarty has played many roles in the years that I’ve known her. She was first the little sister of a friend of mine growing up. She transitioned into a student of mine in my first full-time ministry role. After I stepped away from that position, Krista became a friend and someone I admire.
One interesting fact about this 24 year old young lady is that she has Cystic Fibrosis. She has had to battle this sickness for so long. The whole 14 or so years that I’ve known Krista, she has been a warrior and a half. I truly admire her strength and faith in Christ.
She is in the hospital now intubated and awaiting a lung transplant. She has fought with her lungs about as far as they can go. She is on the list here in Birmingham for a lung transplant. There is also a possibility of a living donor transplant. Please join me in lifting this warrior for Christ up in prayer. Pray for God to open the doors for a transplant to happen quickly. Pray for her family as they are by her side every hour through this all. Let’s see what our awesome God can do (Ephesians 3:20)!
