Will you join the Purvis Pack on our journey of faith?


Health challenges have been a part of life for the Purvis Pack. Our youngest son Luke was born with a rare disease, and each of his brothers have faced their own physical battles. Doctor’s offices, hospital rooms, surgical procedures, and visits to specialists have taken up way too much of our time in recent years. Through it all, we’ve learned to trust God and role with the punches. How can we not? We follow the Great Physician and we believe in a God who heals and still works miracles. Nevertheless, that doesn’t make it any easier when faced with another opportunity for trust and another need for His healing touch.

Ten days ago our family received the unsettling news that many people hear every day. After having a biopsy on suspicious tissue, Kimberly was told that she has cancer. While this was surprising to both of us, we find comfort in the certainty that our God was not surprised. We believe that “He’s got this,” and we’re ready to trust Him and role with the punches yet again. Though we don’t claim to understand His sovereignty or even know the answers to the “whys” of life, we recognize that nothing touches us without first filtering through the hand of God.

We also believe in the power of prayer. This is where YOU come in. Will you join us in praying for Kimberly’s complete and, if necessary, miraculous healing? In recent days the Holy Spirit of God has been bringing about a prayer revival in my life personally and in our church corporately. We believe His timing is impeccable. We believe this is another opportunity for God to receive greater glory through us as He demonstrates the power of praying people. Along the way we will be asking you to join us in some specific requests, in addition to the general request for healing. Thanks in advance for willingly coming alongside our Pack during this season.

While we still have a lot of questions, we do know that the anticipated first step of treatment will be surgical. Here’s how you can pray…

We are asking God for a miracle. Pray that God commands the cancer to leave Kimberly’s body in Jesus name.

  • Pray for God’s perfect peace to encircle Kimberly and the rest of our family.
  • Pray for God’s hand of direction in the selection of medical care.
  • Pray for a timely appointment with the oncologist surgeon.
  • Pray that if surgery is necessary it would be scheduled quickly and be completely effective.
  • Pray that all those we come in contact with will clearly see and hear our belief that nothing can separate us from the love of God.

Kimberly’s prayer is that God would receive glory as she walks through this illness and that our boys will see His grace exhibited in her. (BTW they already have.) She sincerely desires that this become her greatest opportunity for testifying to the gospel of Jesus Christ.

We are so thankful that we are not beginning this journey alone. Because of a lifetime of relationships, we are trusting in the prayer support of friends and family all around the world. Thank you again for taking this trip with us! Thank you for demonstrating your love for the love of my life!

Please join us in claiming this message from Kimberly’s Heavenly Father…

Mark 5:34 (ESV)
34 And he said to her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and be healed of your disease."

By His grace and for His glory,
