The Watters' Story: God's Providence over Curriculum, Cancer, and Adoption

The Watters' Story: God's Providence over Curriculum, Cancer, and Adoption

In 2002, Mike and Deb Watters began teaching the curriculum, My Purpose Will Stand, in the sixth grade Sunday School at Bethlehem Baptist Church. Although they didn't know it at the time, God was teaching them the truths of His sovereignty to prepare them for what was to come.

In 2006 their six-year-old daughter, Corinne, was diagnosed with cancer. Knowing and trusting a sovereign God equipped them to persevere in the face of surgery, chemotherapy, and ongoing treatment.

But God was doing something even greater. At the hospital they met a young boy named Victor, who was undergoing treatment for the same type of cancer as Corinne. Watch the video to learn more about God's providence in caring for the Watters family, and his loving plan to provide a family for Victor.


The Watters' Story from Children Desiring God.

Please pray for the Watters family. Victor's cancer has recurred for the 4th time and he is doing chemotherapy treatment mostly at home. Deb shares: "We're praising God that he feels great and is extremely active. We would cherish your prayers for his continued good health and complete healing from this cancer."
