God PET Scan Results!

If you or someone you love had cancer, then you know the “back of your mind” tension and subconscious emotion that goes into a regular PET scan. I had my 12 month scan on Tuesday. While I didn’t have any symptoms or reason to think cancer was recurring, I still found myself wondering about God’s plan based on “what if…”
My doctor called yesterday and said it was completely clean! This was a fantastic answer to prayer and a great release of emotion that I wasn’t fully aware were hiding “underneath” all of life’s busyness. I have officially crossed the 12 month mark with no cancer. That’s a GREAT milestone.
Now, for our family… it’s on to Connecticut to being the work at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Newington! We leave southern California on Monday morning.

    Dear Bro. and Mrs. Schmidt,
    In the past I have enjoyed reading your blog posts and appreciate how you and your family have glorified the Lord through your struggle with cancer. Have you happened to notice a story on national news about a 28-year-old named Eric McLean, who posted a you tube video saying “Goodbye” as after a 10-year-long battle with cancer his doctor just told him there is nothing more they can do. It is heart braking. He has been married for 1 year.
    The reason why I’m writing you is to bring your attention to his story (if you haven’t heard about it already) and to ask you if you’d have time to write him on his website and witness to him? I am planning on witness to him, but since 1) I am a woman and 2) I have not dealt with cancer issues before in my immediate family, it would not mean as much coming from me. Now I realize you are moving and are extremely busy, no doubt. Even if you can’t write to him, I will pray about how best to word things and plan to write him myself in the next day or two, and can send a link to the “Done” book. The comments on You Tube were atrocious; I would contact him through the L.I.F.E. foundation page: http://www.givetolife.org/index.php/about-life/erics-journal/426-eric-s-confession-final
    God bless you and your family as you serve him. We will pray you have a safe trip and easy transition to this new ministry he has called you to.
    In Christ,
