Long story short, the turning point for my sister came at a youth camp that our student ministry was attending. Andrea's depression often manifested itself in physical symptoms. She had been to doctors and had every test run, but nothing was showing up. At the camp, the speaker (who obviously didn't know my sister) was leading a prayer/response time and said out of the blue, "Some of you are dealing with stomach issues. Some of you are battling depression and haven't told anyone." God used that moment to help my sister correlate the two, and since then she has been sharing her story with others.
Andrea writes for her school newspaper, and a friend suggested they do a story about it. A local news anchor saw the story and then asked my sister if she could feature her on our local news. Andrea wants anyone and everyone to know that there is HOPE in the Lord. He is the only One who can bring healing and victory over this!
We are SO PROUD of Andrea and we are confident that God will use this story to bring those who are hurting to Himself. As my sister said in the story, "This is the perfect example of showing that the world can't satisfy you."
