Sophia Campa-Peters, a little 9-year-old suffering from a rare disease that resulted in several strokes, had a successful brain surgery just a few weeks ago, as reported Lubbock Online.
The rare disease has caused narrowing to her brain’s blood vessels, causing her to have these intense strokes, as well as leaving her partly paralyzed. Huckabee Sanders, the White House Press Secretary, expressed her support through prayer during this stressful time.
Sanders shared Sophia’s story by acknowledging her strength during this time and the need for prayers around the world as she went into her surgery. She also reported back to Sophia, words directly from President Trump, who gave his prayers and inspiration to the young lady. He encouraged her to keep fighting, keep her faith and always know that with God, all things are indeed possible.
Sanders also expressed a cute story from the little girl, saying Sophia mentioned she would like to receive 10,000 prayers from people, which is her concept of how many people there are out there. The story touched so many. Sanders was happy to share with Sophia that not just 10,000 people were praying for her, but millions!
Sophia had the successful surgery at the Boston Children’s Hospital with intent to manage her condition.
U.S. Rep. Jodey Arrington was overwhelmed by the response of commenters on a webpage he made for prayers for the young girl. He wanted people to know that a response like this, full of love, is a true testament to what God can do and the degree of power that prayer has.
