Marching Thru 30 Famous Faces - Number Twenty-nine: Mark Lietha

Today's featured face is NOT Dr. Phil! In fact this face is not of a famous person, at least not according to most people. It's my baby brother Mark Lietha. Now I know the rules for my caricatures this month was that they are to be of FAMOUS people. Well, that's true, but today is my birthday and I chose to feature my brother. Not good enough for you? OK, it's my 50th birthday! Ah yes, I thought that might do it. 

I would like you to consider making my brother "famous" in a special way. I'd like you to think of him often and pray for him. A few weeks ago he was diagnosed with throat cancer and he is now undergoing chemo and radiation. As you can imagine it is not a pleasant process. The good news is that the doctors have given him a promising outcome and that is encouraging. 

Doctors and medical technology are a blessing, however, our hope ultimately is in the God of the Gospel. He is in control, and each thing that comes into our lives is in His hand.

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.

2 Corinthians 12:9-10
And He has said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness." Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ's sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.
