Andy

This young lady is amazing. Two years ago she put her tag on a record book antelope. It was her first big game animal and a dandy, but what is totally amazing is that 4 years ago she was diagnosed with Celiac disease. In the process of that medical report doctors found a heart murmur. Within three weeks she was at Children's hospital have heart surgery.

Today God has blessed her with strength both physically and mentally to handle anything and everything that is handed to her.

She is a true blessing and a gift from Jesus.
