Healing process of Jackie

A way for my friends to follow and pray with me on this healing journey.
I was diagnosed with congenital nonischemic idiopathic restrictive cardiomyopathy. I have struggled with various levels of symptoms since I was a teenager, however, as I grew older they became more debilitating.
In 2009, a defibrillator was placed due to ventricular arrhythmias and family history of sudden death and heart failure. In 2010, I was told to stop working ( I worked in the field because I knew it ran in my family) as a cardiovascular technologist and began an evaluation at Tampa General hospital's heart failure clinic for a heart transplant.
By the end of 2010, the Lord had begun a healing work in my body and I had begun to miraculously improve. The Lord was already healing my emotional heart from an abusive, and fraudulent marriage but he also moved mightily in my physical heart.
Beyond the ability of my doctors explanations, I improved so well that they approved for me to leave the country to assist a project in India.
My gratitude overflowed into a desire and heart to serve in Project Rescue. I worked with women and children who were victims and those at risk of sex trafficking. I have served the Lord in this ministry from 2012- 2016 serving both in India and Spain.
After returning last year, the strength of my heart began to deteriorate and symptoms of congestive heart failure returned. My faith will remain in the Lord and I know the He is faithful. I believe he will continue and complete the good work he began in me. My hearts desire is to continue to serve him on the field. I believe he has broken all generational diseases off of me and will bring my healing to completion.
Currently, I am being reassessed as to what is the best course of action medically is. My functional capacity has decreased significantly in the last few months. I continue to be followed in Tampa general hospital for qualification of a heart transplant.
Thank you for your prayers and support! To him be all the glory and honor. He is faithful and true.
