    Lisa, We are so sorry to hear about this infection. You have blessed us and so many others with your dynamic personality! If your smile and enthusiasm for life could heal you, you wouldn’t be in the hospital! Thankfully we have a God who heals! We are praying for His miraculous hand to touch your body! Blessings and much love.

    Hi Lisa, I just read about your infection via Facebook, and I wanted to leave a message and let you know I am saying a prayer for your healing. I have been a WJTL listener for over 10 years, and I have always enjoyed listening to the programming and have fond memories of driving home from college for visits and listening to the Kids Cookie Break in the car, even though I was “too old” for it! I pray that you will be encouraged and have hope in this difficult time, and it’s neat to see all of the love and support that your WJTL family and sharing with you, too! Sending love your way!

    Lisa I am praying for you as I have experienced a bacterial infection myself, mine was a result of a motorcycle accident in 2009. I am praying for your doctors and surgeons as God uses their healing hands at this time. Hyperbaric Oxygen is an amazing treatment ( I also experienced this) used in healing wounds. God Bless you as you heal, as you have blessed so many while we listen to you on air.

    Lisa, you are in my prayers. I have never met you, but between KCB and listening to you and Fred for so long, I almost feel as I know you. Praying God’s peace for you and your family, guidance for your doctors and nurses, His blessing in your recovery.

    Hi Lisa and family,
    We are praying really hard for God’s hand of healing to be upon Lisa and to help her overcome this terrible infection. May our Great Physician intervene in her life right now. Just saw some of the positive news since she’s been transferred to the University of Pennsylvania hospital. So glad to hear that the doctors feel that they are getting ahead of the infection! Yay God!

    May you and your family feel the support and love and prayers from this community of believers and WJTL listeners who appreciate all of the dedication and care that you’ve given over the years to the listeners of the morning show and the Kid’s Cookie Break. You’re love for God and for people (especially children) really shines through!

    The congregation at Chiques Church of the Brethren is also praying for your healing and recovery. May God continue to be with you!

    Lisa, I don’t know you personally, but I KNOW you were created by a God who HEALS His children…and yes, even today. He is healing me from cancer as we speak and He is healing YOU from this infection? Why? Because He’s our Daddy and we’re asking Him to, and it is His delight to bless His children. Stay strong and hang onto His hand, because you will look back on this ordeal at some point, hopefully very soon, and praise Him for His healing! We’ve got your back, sister!

    Prayers to you Lisa. I haven’t had little kids for years, but still listen to Kids Cookie Break often on Saturday mornings while working around the house. Always brings a smile to my face. I hope that knowing so many people care helps to bring a smile to you face. God is with you in this each second of the way.

    Dear Lisa, as you know, we moved to Costa Rica, so, I want you to know that we are upholding you
    in our prayers all the way from Costa Rica. They are praying for you every morning on the christian
    station I listened to, “Faro del Caribe”. We are also praying for you in our Women’s Bible study group.
    You are in the hands of our Father. We serve a MIGHTY GOD, THE LORD JEHOVAH. You, John and Alex
    are in our prayers. May you be healed in the powerful name of JESUS CHRIST, by HIS wounds you ARE HEALED. The blood of JESUS CHRIST is covering you from head to toe. We speak healing to your body
    by the power HE has given us.
    We love you and we miss your beautiful face, smile, personality. Hugs and kisses from The Staherskis.

    We are praying for you and your family every day, Lisa girl. I love what Mindy said, “The bacteria won’t give up, but neither will Lisa.” That’s the Lisa we know and love soooooo much! God has given you an amazing personality and a set of gifts and talents like nobody else in the world. We are trusting Him to bring your body and spirit great healing. Much love to you all!

    We continue to pray for you. St. Mary’s has you in their prayers. In the sorrowful mysteries, I think about you carrying this cross with your eyes on the Lord. I also think about how in the luminous mysteries, you continue the Proclamation of the Kingdom, sharing His Good News. Know you are never alone. While we do not know why, I know He is there with you and your family! God’s peace.

    My heart goes out to you. I have been a WJTL listener for years and many days you have been an encourager, uplifter and an ambassador of God’s love and joy to me. Thank you!

    Please allow me to (hopefully:) ) be an encouragement to you.

    The main scripture that comes to mind when I am praying for you is “No weapon formed against you can prosper” Isa 54:17. His promises are true. Hold on to them, speak them for there is power in them.

    A ministry/ website I have found encouraging, especially when it comes to healing is kcm.org. Look for Gloria Copeland’s “healing school”. You can access many other resources about healing there as well. Another resource I would highly recommend is Pastor Dave Hess’ book called “Hope Beyond Reason”. I realize you may not be feel up to doing this yourself but perhaps your family may feel led to explore them.

    I am praying for you often for a complete recovery. “By Christ’s stripes you are healed!”

    Hi Lisa!

    I am happy to hear the doctors feel they are getting ahead of the infection. I know our Lord is way ahead of the infection and the doctors. I am praying for our Lord to give your doctors guidance in all they do to diagnose and treat you.

    Although I have never met you in person, you are a joy and a delight to know via the Get Up and Go show in the morning and the Kids Cookie Break! Yes, I am an adult and luv your show! You do such an outstanding job, Lisa! Its easy to sense that our Lord has blessed MANY children through you on KCB and adults too with the morning show!

    I REALLY MISS YOU on the radio, Lisa! Please know that I pray for WJTL daily but also am lifting you up throughout the day along with your family.

    I thank the Lord for how you light up many lives, Lisa!

    Your Brother in Christ!

    Just checking in with you:

    ( she’s eating whole foods! She is engaging in conversation with the Drs)

    Glad you can eat wole food, Well, even if it is ” Hospital Food”. As a staff member of the Ephrata
    hospital once told me, there is only so much you can do with can food.

    May God guide the doctors today and we all look forward to hearing you on the radio.

    We are also thinking of Alex and your husband, John as well.

    May God hold them up as well.
