“I can do all things…”

For the past decade, Joshua has been passing on sage advice to his friends and anyone in need. He turned to the Apostle Paul’s writing in Philippians 4:13 and used it to encourage others saying, “YOU can do all things through Christ who strengthens you!” As a 2020 graduate of Victory Christian Academy, Joshua took those words with him throughout his schooling and continued with them as he accepted a position as a youth counselor at Highland Park Church of the Nazarene.

Now more than ever, Josh could use those words of encouragement and prayer. He was given a diagnosis of colon/rectal cancer on December 14. He is no longer able to work and has been going through some excruciating testing to be followed with a treatment plan. He and his family are believing for a miracle.

If you would like to assist with the family’s financial burden, any donation through Give, Send, Go would be greatly appreciated. All funds raised will go directly to medical costs and related expenses his family incurs.

On behalf of the Butler family, I extend gratitude for the outpouring of love, prayers and support shown over the past couple weeks and undoubtedly, in the months to come.

Together, we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us!

This week, with the help of some very awesome people (I call them angels), we were able to find an Oncologist at Moffitt who specializes in what Joshua needs. This is a huge blessing! We are also able to change our insurance to be able to be treated at Moffitt which was another answer to prayer. Keep the prayers and encouraging words coming.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for the financial gifts, prayers, love, and support. We feel the family of God wrapping us in their love. ~Marcia

Let's curse this out of his body in Jesus' name!!

Update #1

First of on behalf of our family I would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude for all the love, support, prayers and encouraging words that you have shown to Joshua and us. We are overwhelmed with joy and we have felt every single prayer.

Today we met with the oncologist to learn the results of the PET scan and talk about the treatment plan. As a praise report, we can tell you that the nodules in his lungs and liver are not cancerous! PTL!! That means he is not at stage 4

Prayer focus now is treatment plan. Because they diagnosed him with FAP (a rare disease) he can't be treated at Hollis. He needs an oncologist specialist. So we are looking into other locations like Tampa, Gainesville, or possibly out of state. Ultimately we are believing for God's continuing healing in Joshua's body and a miracle report. Until then we are asking God to lead, guide, and direct us. We are leaning not on our own understanding. Trusting in the Lord and allowing HIM to direct our path.

Again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We will walk Joshua's Journey hand and hand with you. We will all witness the glory of God. God bless you. Hugs (( )) from us. Marcia
