Hope is God’s plan for each of us. But cancer or any other life-threatening illness can bring fear, and it tests everyone affected by it. The need for someone to bring them news of hope has never been greater than it is today. For those who are willing, God desires to give the ability to take His precious gift to the hurting and change their difficult road into a testimony.
“Immersion” reaches “Into The Future” through community outreach which guides you along the path of men and women who have dedicated their lives for the purpose of bringing light to those who are suffering under the shadow of cancer, a bad medical diagnosis, or simply on a personal journey to survivorship.
“For I know the plans I have for you, “declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
Immersion "I Survived" is not about starting a journey. It is about joining with individuals who are in the middle of their journey and helping them navigate their path with hope. When we stop trying to pray away someone’s sickness and instead lock arms with them and minister to them through their sickness or going through something unimaginable and need support, then we will become a source of the love of God that can shine brightly.
Real People with Real Stories of courage, forgiveness, strength, faith, perseverance, resilience, and above all "Hope" is the common connector to survivorship. Through this, we are able to provide practical help to those dealing with survivorship. But more than that, it enables you to see Christ in them more clearly. When that happens, and when Hope is genuinely alive in your heart, then you are able to offer support or minister with compassion that comforts and heals the brokenhearted, gives beauty, and rekindles joy.
Immersion Why – Because Everyone’s Journey IS Different
A Step in Someone Else’s Shoes…
Imagine for just a moment that you are experiencing some mild pain and go to see a doctor. The physician comes into the room, and instead of giving you a diagnosis and treatment recommendations, he simply tells you that you will not live much longer. Deep within you, your spirit, your emotions, your feelings begin to sink.
Countless thoughts rush through your mind, and you experience many feelings in the short moments following the conversation. The fear, sadness, and anguish in your heart spread quickly to your family and close friends.
The reality is that doctors often do not use sensitive phrasing, but they do use a word that carries the same weight: cancer, rare disease, some other form of trauma (or hearing the news about the loss of a parent, child, sibling, etc.). When most individuals and families hear those words, their first thought is death or how will I get through this. Unbelievable spiritual and emotional trauma accompanies many of the physical, mental, and emotional hardships. This is why Hope is so powerful. This is why the love of God can have such a great impact. For we are "The Messengers of Hope with Purpose."
To bring hope and love to someone who is dying, or believes they are, can make all of the difference in the world.
