Celebration Of Life for Ann Elizabeth Christler
On January 19th, 2020 Ann and Bob Christler shared with us their testimony. It was during the NEW sermon series and they courageously shared their story of being blindsided with cancer. Ann talked about the fact that when the hard things of life hit us we sit with desired outcomes, we pray for miraculous healing and for the answers given by the medical community to work against the cancer AND completely separate from that our hope is in God. We cannot put our hope in the outcomes or we will be tossed to and fro. When we put our hope in God, keep our eyes fixed on God – we can weather the storms even when our desired outcomes don’t happen. We talk about the fact that we live in the tension of the now and not yet of God’s Kingdom. We believe in a miracle-working God and continue to trust God when the miracles we want don’t always happen.
Our desired outcomes did not happen in Ann’s story. She went home to be with her Savior on June 5th, 2021. We know that she is now running completely free of cancer. We celebrate the freedom and health she is now experiencing while also grieving the loss of our beautiful and joyful friend.
Because we were all invited into their journey, the family wanted to extend the invitation to Ann’s Celebration of Life.
