Bill & Bev Beck
VTR Life Story: Bill & Bev Beck Theme: On June 3, 2014 – At the age of 72, Bill Beck suffered a severe cardiac arrest while playing tennis. An EMS worker at the scene called his wife Bev and told her he was dead. Later another EMS worker did get a faint heartbeat, but Bill’s cardiologist said his condition was very bleak. After 12 days on life support and seemingly no hope for a recovery, the doctors told Bev and the family that they could no longer do anything to improve Bill’s unresponsive condition. Based on Bill’s prior directive to not “live as a vegetable”, the family agreed to pull the plug. The day after the plug was pulled, and funeral arrangements were being made, Bev got a call from the hospital to come right away. Bill had in explicably said, Thank You to his sister who was singing in the room. The family and medical team were stunned. Slowly after a few weeks he started to respond more and more, to the point where he was released from the hospital. His doctor called him a walking miracle. Bill feels very fortunate that God has spared him, and tells everyone his story of God’s healing power.

Ryan Harmon

Michael Youssef
Dr. Michael Youssef is Founding Rector at The Church of the Apostles, Atlanta GA. Even before he was born, it was evident that God had a vision for Michael Amerhom Youssef. His mother was in poor health at the time she became pregnant with Michael, and because her life would be jeopardized by the birth, the doctor recommended terminating the pregnancy. An abortion procedure was scheduled. But God intervened, and sent the family pastor to reassure them the night before the procedure was to take place that God was involved in this pregnancy, not to be afraid, and that this child would be “born to serve the Lord.” Michael’s parents accepted the pastor’s message as a message from God and obeyed. His mother gave birth, and lived to see him surrender his life to the Lord in 1964 at age sixteen. Dr. Youssef came to America in 1977 and in 1978, Michael received a master’s degree in theology at Fuller Theological Seminary in California. He later earned a doctorate in social anthropology from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. He founded The Church of The Apostles in 1987 and the church has since grown to a congregation of over 3000. This church on a hill was the launching pad for Leading the Way‘s international ministry through which Dr. Youssef passionately proclaims uncompromising Truth through radio and television programs, the Internet, and through books, periodicals, and other resources. www.leadingtheway.org

Lysa TerKeurst
Lysa TerKeurst is the President of Proverbs 31 Ministries and Author of "Uninvited" The enemy wants us to feel rejected . . . left out, lonely, and less than. When we allow him to speak lies through our rejection, he pickpockets our purpose. Cripples our courage. Dismantles our dreams. And blinds us to the beauty of Christ’s powerful love. In "Uninvited", Lysa shares her own deeply personal experiences with rejection—from the incredibly painful childhood abandonment by her father to the perceived judgment of the perfectly toned woman one elliptical over. With biblical depth, gut-honest vulnerability, and refreshing wit, Lysa helps readers: •Release the desire to fall apart or control the actions of others by embracing God-honoring ways to process their hurt. •Know exactly what to pray for the next ten days to steady their soul and restore their confidence. •Overcome the two core fears that feed our insecurities by understanding the secret of belonging. •Stop feeling left out and start believing that "set apart" does not mean "set aside." •End the cycle of perceived rejection by refusing to turn a small incident into a full blown issue. www.LysaTerKeurst.com.
