    Bless you and your beautiful family.

  • Marilyn Wilt

    Awesome … God is at work in and through you.

  • john dettoni

    Wow! Will these bones live again? Only the Soverign Lord knows. But he is saying to Steve: rise and walk — slowly but surely those bones and muscles and nerves will get their act together and you will dance before the Lord in this life time!! A prophet, I am not. A seer, I am not. A believer, I am. And this will happen. john dettoni

  • Klenks

    God’s miracles continue :)

  • Debbie

    We are so encouraged and empowered to see the very hope and love of Jesus in you…living and breathing, and standing. These past few Sundays, the sermons at UCM were taken from Acts 1-4, centering on the miraculous healing by Peter of the crippled man at the Temple Gates. How wonderful to see that very Scripture alive in this 21st century of jadedness and callousness…that the very same is so powerfully true…so, we rejoice with you Pastor Steve as you rise, stand up, and soon walk IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST!!!

  • Billy

    Clinically, this is EXTREMELY uncommon. Fortunately, God is not concerned nor limited by clinical norms. I’m optimistic for things to come!

    • Genniego

      Yes Billy I agrees with you 100%. He is going to Walk again through God and to heal completely.

  • Mary Braden

    God’s love and healing is indeed at work in your body. Awesome. Mary Braden, Seattle, Wa.

  • Amelita

    Wow, what an achievement!!! The Lord be praised!!!

  • Raallender

    oh, my, STEVE! FABULOUS! WAY TO WORK AND BELIEVE! You are the best. Praise to our Father in Heaven!

  • Jhorlacher263206

    OMH&GL (Oh My Holy & Gracious Lord)!!! Again, I don’t personally know you Steve, but this video put tears in my eyes!!! What a BEAUTIFUL site to see! Keep up the wonderful work! I had a stroke in 2004. A brain bleed from some brain surgery that I had. It took me 3 months to get out of the hospital Harborview and UW Medical) with most of my mobility back. You’ve been through MUCH MUCH MUCH more than I have and look at what you’ve accomplished in 3 months!!! Even after 6 years, I still have nerve pain on the left side of my body where it feels like it’s burning. So, the nerve part of the injury I’ve been told, takes the longest to heal. But, wow…you’re standing. Not a long time, but never the less…STANDING!!! Day to day, things will feel challenging and difficult and not so positive. But please recognize and grab hold to all the positive. Look where you’ve come from…it is an AMAZING journey so far. You and Michelle are doing an AMAZING job…GOD is doing an AMAZING job…everyone who loves you (family, friends and this large community of strangers such as me) we ALL love you and your family! You’re beautiful!! Michelle is beautiful! Your boys are beautiful! KEEP UP THE AMAZING WORK!!! The bridge seems very long and goal so far away…but you are closer than you can imagine!!! I just feel it!!! WOW!

  • Colleenvanmatre

    Bless the Lord o my soul…let all that is within me bless His holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget none of His benefits…who forgives all your sins, who heals all your diseases….who crowns you with love and compassion so that your youth is rewewed like the eagles’
    Psalm 103

  • Christine Mantlo

    Stand firm! Stand firm! Stand firm Pastor Steve! The scripture that I see every morning on our kitchen counter is I CAN DO ALL THINGS THOUGH CHRIST WHO STRENGTHENS ME. You can stand at the kitchen sink through Christ who strengthens you. You can through Christ! Amen! We love you and continue to pray and believe that you will walk again.

  • Claire Skeggs

    My heart is steadfast, O God;
    I will sing and make music with all my soul.
    Awake, harp and lyre!
    I will awaken the dawn.
    I will praise you, O Lord, among the nations;
    I will sing of you among the peoples.
    For great is your love, higher than the heavens;
    your faithfulness reaches to the skies.
    Be exalted, O God, above the heavens,
    and let your glory be over all the earth.

    (Psalm 108:1-5)
    Dear Pastor Steve and Michelle,
    We are just quiet here…. observing … but we have not stopped praying…
    To God be the glory all the time! We’re praying that you shall walk again and more!

    Love from Andrew & Claire Skeggs, Brisbane
