Char'Lee Van Patten


Being raised in Church, I certainly knew who Jesus was as I grew up. Unfortunately, as some teenagers do, I went astray in my later years. In fact after the loss of my first baby, I was downright angry with God.

Then my oldest daughter, Sydnye was born very sick. We were immediately rushed from Denison to Dallas, where before she was even 24 hours old she was taken into the very first surgery. I had doctors telling me she wouldn’t live past the age of four, that she would be mentally impaired, she would never walk. I could list all of her diagnoses of you but it wouldn’t matter. All you need to know is she was my miracle!

Not only through her did I find God again. But God showed me so many wonderful things. She graduated in 2018 with a 3.4 GPA, she doesn’t just walk, she can RUN, and she will turn 19 years old this next February. 

So remember my Darwin family and friends, our God is an awesome God who is always by our side, through the hill and valleys.

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of sound mind.” – 2 Timothy 1:7
