Last month at Cornerstone, we shared the touching story of Rogers Kirven and his wife Christy.  Rogers was a former business partner with Sam who now lives in Florida.  Rogers and Christy have five children and have been married for 35 years. Three years ago Christy was diagnosed with three specific types of cancer. In addition to fervent prayer, Rogers has spent a fortune seeking the best treatment available from places like M.D. Anderson Cancer Center out of Houston, TX and Shands, the University of Florida Cancer Hospital. During Christmas, the medical community sent Christy home to die.

Today was the day when the Lord gave her ultimate healing. Christy passed away and I want to ask that you keep Rogers and his family in your prayers. If you missed the church service where we called and interviewed Rogers, then please watch the video below and listen to the audio of the phone call.

It was powerful, it was challenging, and it reminded all of us that love never dies …

    I have been a friend of Rogers and Chris from jr. high school on. Their 35 years of marriage was a remarkable walk of Faith in Our Lord Jesus Christ. I can testify that all the good things you may have heard about these two believers is true. Their legacy of Faith continues in their 5 young adult children and 2 grand sons. Rogers started out with "Jesus plus nothing" as all one needs to be successful in this life. He allowed Christ to take his painful experiences and from them build a man of real conviction and 'character. God richly blessed him with life long Christian friends, a Godly wife and a wonderful family. His example of what a loving father and husband should be has stood the test of time and the fruits of that family will live on and on. They have loved and touched so many others lives–and they have been loved by so many. . To God be the glory. Mrs. Cindy Outlaw Gragg
