RR: You’ve got one, you’re taking him to the doctor and you’ve got another one you’re carrying.

KN: One checking into the hospital. But I’ll tell you, I was so thankful, even though with all the bad and the doctor, the sure that it was. We went to the hospital to do all the testing, but we were so thankful for our background, that we knew that God is a God of miracles and nothing is impossible for God. (Applause)

RR: So what happened?

KN: So what happened, this story ends good. But we got up in that bed with our two-year-old and prayed and held hands, and when two or more agree upon touching one thing–it wasn’t just the two of us. We had a lot of people praying too, a lot of friends and family and our grandma and grandpa who is pastor of the church in Broken Arrow, Assembly of God Church in Broken Arrow for 40 years, James and Francine Dodd. (Yes) They got on their knees. They’re prayer warriors. They know how–

RR: Broken Arrow is just a few miles from where we are right now. It’s about 10 or 12 miles.

KN: And they flew in and were with us. And we just knew, even though we were going through all the tests and that was very scarey. You know, when it comes to your child it’s very scarey to see a little two-year-old go through that. But we just knew that God had touched him and we had faith in Him. And ten days after that–we got out of the hospital in four days, and ten days after that we went back for a checkup. Bone marrow perfect, blood count is perfect. Has been ever since. It’s been over a year and a half. And we just had a checkup last Thursday, and he would have been here today but our plane was so late last night, the little thing was just sacked out this morning. So I didn’t get him up. But he’s a pill. He’s full of energy and healthy as a horse, and we give all the glory to God. (Applause)

BN: I want to tell you something else too. When you all were going through your time, we were praying for you. And I’ve come so close, when we thought leukemia used to mean death for a child, and they say that most marriages after that dissipate too because the parents watch their child just slowly die. But thank God that He took and had mercy on us and thank God that you all got this beautiful little Jordan now.

LR: Our little miracle.

BN: And I’m so thankful and I’m so glad to see you be able to talk about it, Richard. I don’t know that I could handle that. I guess I could, grace would be sufficient.
