Show Notes

Ray, E.Z., and Mark, alongside Vicki and Mike Zoradi, discuss Vicki’s incredible testimony. Vicki’s 60th birthday celebration took an unexpected turn when she was struck by a kidney stone, unknowingly setting off a chain of events that would test her faith. What began as back pain gradually escalated into a life-threatening condition as Vicki slipped into septic shock, her organs failing one by one. In the midst of this medical crisis, Vicki’s husband, Mike, faced the terrifying prospect of losing his beloved wife, grappling with the possibility of planning her funeral.

Yet, even in the darkest moments, Mike clung to his faith, finding solace in constant prayer and the support of their community. It was a time of uncertainty and fear, but also a time marked by a profound sense of divine intervention. Despite the dire prognosis from medical professionals, Vicki’s condition miraculously stabilized, prompting Mike to see the hand of God at work in their lives.

As Vicki lay in a coma, her body fighting for survival, she experienced a vision that would stay with her long after she regained consciousness. In her dream, she saw angels surrounding her, protecting her from the grasp of death. It was a powerful reminder of the spiritual battles being waged on her behalf, and a testament to the belief that even in the darkest of times, she was not alone.

For Mike and Vicki, the journey toward recovery was fraught with challenges and uncertainties. Vicki faced the prospect of losing her hands and feet, a devastating blow for anyone. Yet, amidst the pain and uncertainty, they found moments of profound peace and reassurance. In the midst of her suffering, Vicki experienced a deep sense of God’s presence, a reminder that He was with her every step of the way.

Their faith sustained them through the long and arduous road to recovery, providing them with hope and strength when they needed it most. Vicki’s ordeal became a testament to the power of prayer and the resilience of the human spirit. It was a journey marked by both pain and triumph, sorrow and joy. And through it all, they emerged with a deeper understanding of God’s providence and a renewed sense of purpose in their lives.

Today, Vicki and Mike’s story serves as an inspiration to others, a reminder that even in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds, faith can provide a beacon of hope. Theirs is a story of courage, resilience, and unwavering trust in the goodness of God. And though their journey may have been marked by suffering, it is ultimately a story of redemption and triumph through Christ.
