What a blessing!
Sunday, April 26, 2015 was a great day at MCON. One of the highlights of the service was hearing Mikayla Donoahue sing "I Am Not Alone" by Kari Jobe. You may remember that Mikayla is the 12 year old girl who is undergoing treatment for leukemia. She has completed two rounds of chemo therapy and will be going to Riley Hospital soon for her final round of chemo followed by a bone marrow transplant. If you missed seeing and hearing her sing, go to this link - Hear Mikayla sing.
