Hey Miss, Jesus Saved Me

 I wanted to share this story with you.  It is so touching.  It really made me take inventory.  Am I so anxious to tell others  "Hey, Miss.  Jesus saved me?"  Or to witness more to others?  I know it has made me more aware of how fast life can change and has brought me to my knees more in prayer.  I have no doubt that God is using this little boy that has sit right by me in church for 6 yrs.  I miss him and his family so much.

Britany & Jonathan/ Dana & Phillip: 
(I have been contemplating about what to say to all of you since I heard of Logan’s accident.  I log on to check the updates through CaringBridge 10-15 times daily, and read all of the other encouraging messages &  prayers of people from everywhere!  God is GREAT!)  To begin with, I have been in a continuous succession of prayer for ya’ll & Logan, as I have had such a heavy burden in my heart since hearing about this.  My family and I are praying for lil’ Logan 24 hours a day!  I even find myself waking up from dozing, STILL actively praying for Logan even as I sleep! 

***I have a little story that I want to share with you.  As you know, I have the honor of getting to see Logan, as well as all of his other little friends, at their recess, where I circulate for duty.  Just a few months ago, as I was making my rounds near the monkey-bars on the playground, Logan made a quick sprint up to me, his eyes gleaming and his beautiful smile beaming!  The conversation went like this:  “Hey, Miss!” Logan said in a hearty, happy tone.  (A lot of the little ones call me “Miss”, due to the fact that “Mrs. Donagriche” is difficult for the majority of people to say, no matter their age!  ~LOL~)  I replied, smiling as I wrapped my arms around his small shoulders, “Yes?..”  Logan continued, “I am telling EVERYBODY!... I GOT SAVED!”  He couldn’t contain his genuine joy!  A warm feeling traveled from my neck & down my back, as I continued to grip his small body.  With tears welling-up in my eyes, I replied, “That is AWESOME, lil’ man!.. and you do JUST THAT! go tell EVERYBODY that you were saved by Jesus!”  As the bell rang, I reached for my sunglasses as I retreated back to my classroom, to help disguise the tears that were now flowing down my cheeks.  I HAD FELT the gentle, loving spirit that Logan emitted.  I thought to myself, “This little boy is destined to become a preacher or missionary, to do GREAT things for the Lord!”  I was so touched by that little fella in hearing what he was so eager to tell the world, that when I got home that evening, I wept as I told my husband and parents about how ecstatic Logan was to share his news.  I, a 45 yr. old woman, was “touched” by the anointing that radiated from a precious 5 yr. old kindergartener that day! 
Dana & Phillip/ Britany & Jonathan - THERE IS NO DOUBT in my mind that LOGAN is going to be COMPLETELY HEALED!  Because of the enthusiasm and love for JESUS CHRIST that he displayed that day, I know that GOD has great things in store for him.  Logan is going to be a TRUE testimony of the healings of JESUS CHRIST!  So, don’t lose the faith!  Also, when you all pray, speak positive, and without question of God, that HIS will shall be done!  Thank the Lord for the healing that has already taken place in Logan’s body!  Please remember that we are with each of you through love & prayer.  Please don’t hesitate to contact me should any of you need anything! 
Love to You All,
Angela B. Donagriche

Through this accident so many people are hearing about Logan and his Saviour. God IS using him....just not in the way anyone would have expected or wished for. Prayers for healing for Logan, and for his family to keep trusting in God's hand.
